The Information the Company Collects:
The Company may collect information from Visitors in a variety of ways. The Company collects both “Personal Information” (i.e., information that is personally identified to a particular Visitor) and “Non-Personal Information” about Visitors. Personal Information may include, without limitation, (i) contact data, such as, but not limited to, a Visitor’s name, mailing address, phone number, and email address; and (ii) demographic data, such as a Visitor’s age, location, schools attended, interests, etc. If a Visitor communicates with the Company by email or otherwise, posts any comments or any other content on or to the Website, posts messages to any forums, completes online forms, surveys or entries, provides articles, reviews, or blog posts, or otherwise interacts with or uses the features on the Website, any information provided in such communications may be collected by the Company as Personal Information. The Company may also collect Personal Information about how Visitors use the Website, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Website, or the domains and IP addresses from which Visitors originate. While not all of the information that the Company collects from Visitors is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Visitors provide the Company through the Website or otherwise. “Non-Personal Information” is information that cannot be used to contact or identify you and is not linked to information that can be used to contact or identify you and includes passively collected information about your activities on the Website, such as usage data, to the extent that information is not linked to your Personal Information.
The Company may use “cookies” or “web beacons” to track how Visitors use the Website.

The cookies received with banner advertisements served by these networks are used to collect and build anonymous behavioral profiles by these companies to deliver targeted advertisements and tracking referrals.

For purposes of this Policy, a “Job” is an engagement made by a Tutor and a Client; a “Tutor” is a person who has registered on the Website as an available tutor; and a “Client” is a person who has registered on the Website as a student (or the parent or legal guardian of a student) in search of a Tutor.
When posting a Job, whether as a Client or as a Tutor, the Company collects and stores all of the additional information that you provide on your Job posting including without limitation your expertise, qualifications, schedule, location, hourly rate, narrative, photos, education, school names, reviews and references. The Company also captures and collects information that Visitors share among each other, including but not limited to reviews of Tutors and Clients.
