Who we share your data with

Your scholarship applications are considered private. We do not share the information outside the Arica School, and within the School only with those people or teams who need the information to support getting you a scholarship. In the case of sponsored OIF trainings (e.g,, Core Fire: Awaken • Generate • Revitalize and Psychoalchemy), we do not share your application data with the Sponsor.

How long we retain your data

The application form data you submit is stored in a database on this server and a password-protected spreadsheet on Google Drive indefinitely.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Use the Contact form to do this.

Where we send your data

When you submit an application or contact form, the server sends you a confirmation email and sends your data to the Scholarship Team.

Your contact information

We deliberately restrict the amount of contact information we collect from you to exclude, for example, your full birth date and street address. We collect your city, state/province and country, as well as your phone number and email address.

Additional information

This website automatically determines your IP address. We might use that IP address to confirm that you were actually the one submitting a form. In the event of an approach by a hostile party, we use their IP address to block further attempts to access the site.

How we protect your data

This website is protected by several security features, details of which are available on request to At the Scholarship Team, your data is posted to a password-protected spreadsheet in Google Drive. Only the necessary people have access to that spreadsheet.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a data breach, we will notify you of the breach and of what information, if any, was stolen.

What third parties we receive data from

The only third party we receive data from is Google, for the reCAPTCHA feature.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

There is no automated decision making or profiling associated with this website.
