In order to help you get the most out of our service, we collect User-submitted personally identifiable information (“PII”) when you use the Service. Such information may include information you provide when you create an account, create or edit your profile, upload content (photographs, essays, lessons, etc.), provide profile descriptions or comments, provide school information for a student, participate in a contest or promotion, participate in interactive features of the Service, connect or communicate with us via third party social media sites, send us an email, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us or communicate with other users through the Service. Such information may include your name, address, password, zip code, email address, and phone number for communication purposes. Information may be submitted to the Site or Apps or via telephone or email when communicating with a Tutor Troops representative. For students and parents, we may collect information related to your documentation of and payment for tutoring sessions; tutoring questions related to homework or your studies; teacher feedback of a student (once the parent provides consent for submission); and content you upload for the purposes of transmitting it to another user or for public display on the Site or Apps. For tutors, we may collect your Social Security number (SSN) or Employer Identification number (EIN) and date of birth, for tax purposes or to complete a background check; we also collect the content you upload to transmit to other users or for publication on the Site or Apps.

Information we collect automatically

We also gather non-PII when you use the Service, including type of browser you use, access time, pages viewed, your IP address; and we collect information about the computer or mobile device you use to access the Service, including without limitation operating system and unique device identifiers and mobile network information. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the Site and Apps. Tutor Troops may publish these statistics or share them with third parties without including PII. Some browsers allow you to indicate that you would not like your online activities tracked, using “Do Not Track” indicators (“DNT Indicators”), however we are not obligated to respond to these indicators. Presently we are not set up to respond to DNT Indicators. This means that we may use latent information about your online activities to improve your use of our Service, but such usage is consistent with the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

Information we collect from other sources

We may also obtain information from other sources in addition to the information we collect through the Service. For example, we may collect information about you from other users, identity verification services, credit bureaus, mailing list providers and publicly available sources. If you log into your account through sign-in services, like Facebook Connect or Google Authenticator, you provide Tutor Troops with permission to access certain information about you such as your Facebook User ID, user profile, friends list, user graph and profile picture. User generated content posted through certain social networking preferences (e.g. pages you “Like” or “Follow”) may be viewed by the general public. Accordingly, Tutor Troops does not ensure the privacy of any PII included in such User generated content.

Location information

The Site employs a location feature that automatically collects your geolocation information. In such event, the Service will use and share such location to enable users to determine which users in their network are nearby. Tutor Troops may also use location information to provide information and advertising to users.

Unfortunately, even with these measures, Tutor Troops cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that Tutor Troops makes no such guarantee, and that you use the Service at your own risk.
