It is, therefore, important that you read the information below and be aware of such specifications. Should you have any queries, please e-mail us at contact us.

PRIVATE POLICY
We take our commitment to your privacy seriously and treat any information you supply to us with the utmost care. We will only use the information that we collect, process and retain about you lawfully and in accordance with any relevant data protection laws. Any processing or storage of information that you provide about you (such as, but not excluded to, name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address) will only be used for the sole purpose of maintaining the functionality of our website and general user care. We will not sell, distribute or disclose information about you or your personal usage of our website without your express consent, or unless required to do so by law or any certified authority. All information that we hold about you will be kept securely and every reasonable effort will be made to protect it. If such information is stolen or intercepted by any third party by whatever means, we do not accept any liability.

Registration to our website requires a password. Users are required to keep their password strictly confidential and must not disclose it to anyone else under any circumstances. All orders submitted via a password are deemed to be the sole responsibility of the person who initially registered that password and provided identification and contact details when doing so. Therefore, if you know or suspect that someone else knows your password you must notify us immediately.

Technology may be used to ascertain patterns of behaviour of the visitors to our website. Such tracking is for marketing and convenience reasons, with the ultimate goal of facilitating a better service for our users. In using our website you accept that your personal data may be used for such purpose. Examples of the data we may collect and analyse include the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, login, password, computer and connection information such as browser type and version, your operating system and platform. This can also include using a “http cookie” which would be stored on your browser. A “http cookie” can be used for authentication, identification of a user session, user's preferences, or anything else that can be accomplished through storing text data on the user's computer. Should you not want us to use data or identify you from the information collected in this way, most browsers allow you to deactivate the “http cookie” via your browser preference control panel. Since “http cookie” activation is defined by the user and not by us, we accept no accountability for its use or non-use.

SECURITY
Garagani-Robertson ELT recognizes the importance in the issue of security and personal information. All information related to the personal information of users is safeguarded and treated as strictly confidential.

EXAMINATION RESULTS
The Examination Results Menu allows users to look at our school's successful candidate Examination Results List for each specified academic year.

An ‘academic year’ includes specified examinations held anytime beginning September of any given year until July the following year. Therefore, the main Cambridge/Michigan/Goethe-Institut examination suites of winter (Nov, Dec, January) and summer (May, June, July) constitute a Examination Results List for that academic year. No other results from any other examination period out side any specified academic year are included in our Examination Results Lists.

An Examination Results List is divided into each exam an individual candidate successfully attained during the specified academic year. A successful candidate may appear more than once in the list if he/she sat and successfully attained more than one exam.

Attainment is solely determined by the criteria set out by the examination authorities of the specific universities which conduct and govern any specified exam. Exams are categorised (B1, C2 etc.) according to standard European Common European Framework of References (CEFR) for Languages as published by the European Council and in accordance with the generic names of such exams (e.g. Cambridge Lower or First Certificate, Michigan Proficiency etc.)

Any stated age of a successful candidate in an Examination Results List is calculated from the students date of birth to the date of the specific exam that gradate is accredited with. Age may be either specified by years and months (e.g. 12.10 = twelve years and ten months old, whereas 12.1 = twelve years and one month old) or rounded off or under (e.g. 12.5 = twelve and a half years old (12 years and 6 months) or more than twelve and a half years old (e.g. 12 years and 9 months), whereas 12 = less than twelve and a half years old (e.g. 12 years and 3 months). As to which system applies is consistent in any given Examination Results List.

Any photos and/or slideshows of successful candidates (graduates) in an Examination Results List or any other part of the web site are representative only. They do not include all graduates, nor are they specific to any particular examination. If they are part of a specific Examination Results List, they are, however, of students of that Examination Results List taken during the specified academic year.

While the utmost care is given to keep the information on an Examination Results List accurate, Garagani-Robertson ELT expressly disclaims any responsibility for any/all errors or omissions in Examination Results Lists. Furthermore, Garagani-Robertson ELT bases the information in Examination Results Lists on the information supplied by examination authorities of the specific universities which conduct and govern specified exams and therefore disclaims any liability for misleading or incorrect information supplied by such authorities. Should any omissions or inaccuracies be detected, you are kindly asked to contact us so that any appropriate rectifications can be made.

SURVEYS AND QUESTIONAIRES
Participation in any surveys we may conduct in order to improve our services is voluntary, and users are under no obligation to reply to any survey, poll or questionnaire we may operate or send to you. Any information gained by surveys or questionnaires is covered by our Private Policy and is therefore handled with the appropriate confidentiality.
