Information we collect automatically
Information we collect from other sources
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Service. For example, we may collect information about you from other users, identity verification services, 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 Tuty 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, Tuty cannot ensure the privacy of any PII included in such User generated content.
When you use the Service, a location feature exists whereby it will automatically collect 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. Tuty may also use location information to provide information and advertising to users. IF YOU WANT TO STOP THE AUTOMATIC COLLECTION OF YOUR LOCATION INFORMATION, YOU MAY DO SO BY USING THE PRIVACY SETTINGS ON YOUR BROWSER AND/OR ON YOUR DEVICE. FOR MOBILE APP USERS, YOU MAY ALSO UNINSTALL THE APP.
Data transmission and storage
Tuty uses industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the Site and the Tuty network (collectively, the “System.”) Once information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security. Tuty also uses firewalls and hardware monitoring across our System to protect against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, even with these measures, Tuty cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that Tuty makes no such guarantee, and that you use the Service at your own risk.
If you elect to pay for tutoring lessons with a credit card, we will collect your name, credit card number, expiration date, and address information associated with the account. All financial information, other than credit card numbers, is stored and encrypted in our System in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. We do not store credit card numbers.
With Your Consent
We also may share your Personal Information with a third party if you consent to the sharing.
How We Protect Information
Tuty uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer), the industry standard method for computers to communicate securely without risk of manipulation or recipient impersonation. We utilize SSL in the online registration process, in the login process, and in the account management section of the Site.
Tuty uses strong encryption technology to protect sensitive information.
Tuty employs firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and system monitoring to protect against unauthorized access of our systems.
Your user accounts are also protected by the password you use to access your online account with Tuty, and we urge you to take steps to keep your password safe. If you feel your password has been compromised, you should change it immediately by logging into your account. After you have finished using our Site, you should log out of your Tuty account and exit your browser.
WE TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AGAINST SECURITY BREACHES. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF SUCH FIREWALLS AND SECURE SERVER SOFTWARE. BY USING OUR SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME THESE RISKS.
Changing or Removing your Personal Information and Closing your Account
If the Personal Information you provided when you registered changes, you may update this information by logging into your account and accessing your account settings. If you would like to remove some of the Personal Information you have posted on the Site, such as information you posted in profiles, you may do so by editing or deleting that item. To request removal of other Personal Information you have voluntarily posted on our Site, such as information you may have posted in online group forums, contact Tuty. In some cases, we may not be able to reasonably accommodate your request to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
If you no longer wish to participate in our Services you may close your account directly in the account settings portion of your account.
If you close your Tuty account, we have no obligation to retain your information, and may delete any or all of your account information without liability. However, we may retain information related to you if we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, Non Personal Information, account recovery, auditing our records, enforcing our rights and obligations under our agreements or if required by law. Tuty may also retain and use your information if necessary to provide the Services to other Registered Users. For example, just as an email you may send to another person through an email service provider resides in that person’s inbox even after you delete it from your sent files or close your account, emails you send to others through Tuty to other Users, as well as your contributions to Tuty groups, may remain visible to others after you have closed your account. Similarly, other information you have shared with others, or that others have copied, may also remain visible. Tuty disclaims any liability in relation to the deletion or retention (subject to the terms herein) of information or any obligation not to delete the information. Tuty does not control when search engines update their search index or cache, which may contain certain job post, profile or other information that has since been removed from Tuty’s Site.
