Collection and Use
We will only collect personal information about you when you complete a form that requests such information (e.g. filling out a web form, registering for an event or purchasing an item online).
Web Forms (requests for information, registrations, and feedback)
The MPA website may provide the opportunity for you to complete forms and registrations, such as Admission information request forms, alumni event registration, and feedback forms. The personal information you provide will be used only for such purposes as are described at the point of collection, such as to send information to you.
MPA does not offer refunds, except in the case of over-payment.
Disclosure of Information
The identifiable personal information you provide through email lists, web forms and surveys is considered private data. The data may be shared with employees of the school as necessary to provide the specific service requested, but no personal identification information is ever shared with other organizations, advertisers, or other third parties without explicit permission.
The school does reserve the right to share user information in the event that it is necessary to comply with any legal process.
Commitment to Security
The school is committed to ensuring the safety of the website and its users. This site has security measures in place to protect all information under our control. The network infrastructure is protected by a firewall, and traffic is monitored and logged both on the firewall and on the servers.
Use of Photographs
Photographs of MPA community members, including students, alumna/e, faculty, and staff are used on this website. Existing divisional guidelines regarding identification of students on the MPA website remains unchanged. Specifically, we will not use names when referring to Lower School students and use first names only when referring to Middle School students. Upper School student mentions may include first and/or last names.
Please be aware that MPA has no control over photos and materials once they are posted online, and these can be copied or sent without our knowledge or permission.
MPA has many visitors during the course of the school year, and students from other schools participate in many of its events and activities. Photography of these events may be used both internally and externally and with appropriate identification if possible (i.e. visiting artists, guest speakers, athletic teams).

The school does not share constituent email addresses with third parties and does not send unsolicited email. Email addresses provided to the school are used for sending responses to questions and queries, providing purchase and registration confirmation, and communicating follow-up information. The school also sends email newsletters and informational updates. Constituents who receive email newsletters and updates may request to be removed from these lists at any time.
