Registration for a subscription
The Site offers students the ability to meet language tutors and take language courses online at competitive rates. To take one of these courses, you need to become a member and provide certain information requested on the sign up form.
Information collected during lessons
In the course of providing lessons, language Tutors may collect information from students. This information is used to determine the language capabilities of students, and is used in the course of providing personalized language instruction. The tutors are not employees, but are independent contractors and maintain their own files and records related to student lessons. In some circumstances, Tutors submit information to us or to a third-party supervisor. This information is maintained solely to assist us in providing the services, and to assist Tutors in communicating with students or providing quality lessons.
