Biometric Information

We do not collect biometric information on pupils, parents, staff, volunteers, governors or anyone involved in Farncombe School. Our Data Protection Policy (above) details how we manage personal information abiding by GDPR regulations. The following information is from the Department for Education:

What is Biometric Data?
Biometric data means personal information resulting from specific technical processing
relating to the individual’s physical, psychological or behavioural characteristics which
allow or confirm the unique identification of that person, such as facial images, voice
recognition or fingerprints.
What is an Automated Biometric Recognition System?
An automated biometric recognition system uses technology to measure an individual’s
physical or behavioural characteristics by using equipment that operates ‘automatically’
(i.e. electronically). Biometric systems usually store measurements taken from a person’s
physical/behavioural characteristics and not images of the characteristics themselves.
