Privacy Policy


The Thrive School website is intended as a resource for individuals and organizations interested in information about Thrive School. This policy is to provide direction with respect to the requirements of Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) legislation as it applies to Thrive School.

Policy Statement

Thrive School respects and complies with all Canadian requirements to protect identifiable information about you ("Personal Information"). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about why we collect and how we use your personally identifiable information ("Personal Information"), and to provide you with contact information should you have any questions or concerns about Thrive School’s privacy practices.

Thrive School protects the Personal Information that you provide to us. Thrive School collects, uses and discloses Personal Information that you supply only in order to provide you with the services you have requested. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via email, through a contact form or registering in a secure portion of the site (such as online registration forms).

Our primary goal in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with efficient and effective service. This allows us to provide features that meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your interaction with Thrive School easier. Thrive School recognizes that you may have provided, and may continue to provide us with Personal Information in one or more ways, including interacting with Thrive School administrators and teachers, visiting our website, completing forms and sending email.

Personal Information that Thrive School collects includes information such as you and your child's name, address, telephone numbers, and birthdate. When you choose to participate in surveys, you may also provide additional Personal Information.
