Welcome to Tutoristic
What is Personal Information?
Personal information is defined as data that specifically identifies an individual such as a username, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other external account, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person such as knowledge about his or her use of Tutoristic. Personal information also includes demographic facts such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such data is linked to other personal information that identifies you individually.
As personal information is what makes you unique, it does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of places, products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps us understand trends better, so that we can consider new features and improvements to tailor Tutoristic to the benefit of our users’ needs. We may collect credit or debit card information to process payments but we do not store those details.
Personal Information We Collect
We collect personal information in a number of ways when you visit our web site. For example, we collect personal information when you:
- register and set up an account;
- sign up to any of our e-mail newsletters;
- post a review or;
- contact us by e-mail for any reason.
When you visit our web site, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and timestamp. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with, or link it to, any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.
How We Use Personal Information?
Generally, we use personal information to process your requests and provide you with services or to inform you about other products/services we think will be of interest. When we use personal information in our marketing efforts, we provide you with options (See Controlling Your Personal Information below) and do not disclose the information to third parties except as described in this Policy. Personal information provided online may be linked together or merged with other personal information so that we may better understand your needs and inform you about our products or services and those of our partners. In addition, if we receive information from third parties with whom we have business relationships, we may combine this information with the other personal information we maintain about you. In either case, this Policy governs this information.
Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server, administer Tutoristic, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in, and use of, the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners.
When users provide Tutoristic with registration information such as name, email address and postal address, this data can be matched with cookie data, if cookies have been set to be received. This means Tutoristic is able to match an identifiable user with specific usage of Tutoristic. This information would be used by Tutoristic only.
Controlling your Personal Information
You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., username, e-mail address) via reviews, comments, messages, discussion forums, postings, or in other areas of the Tutoristic, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Tutoristic. Please do not post any personal information on Tutoristic or in other areas that you expect to keep private.
As a registered Tutoristic user, you can modify your personal information at any time by accessing the “Edit Profile” section of the site. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us you can change your notification settings within the “My Profile” section of the site. Also, upon your request, Tutoristic will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally remove you and your personal information from the site; however, it may be impossible to remove your entry without some residual information being retained by Tutoristic. Registered users who wish to close their account should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Sharing of Personal Information
We do not sell, rent or share personal information with third parties without your prior consent except in the limited circumstances described in this policy. We may share personal information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include, without limitation, website hosting, credit card transaction processing and data entry. We limit the information shared with our third-party vendors to that which we believe is necessary to carry out those functions. Moreover, we require them to comply with our privacy practices, and not to use the information for other purposes except as required by law.
In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorised to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Tutoristic, our users, our employees or the public. Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition but they will be legally bound to keep the information secure and only to use it consistent with this policy in the event of the deal proceeding. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personal information when posting reviews or other content onto Tutoristic, this information may be collected and used by others. You agree that we bear no responsibility for any such disclosures. We recommend you be cautious in giving out personal information to others in public online forums.
Some third parties may use the cookie technology when associated with our site, which will also send these third parties (such as Google through their Google Maps program) some information including your IP address, your ISP, and the browser used when you visit our site.
