Information Use

 

RSVP’s Web Site presents a new and creative online way to help high school students learn math and other subjects for free.  Tutors work directly with students during online sessions.  RSVP only collects personally identifiable information that is necessary:

  • To insure that tutoring sessions are personal and productive;
  • Store all of your past sessions in order to review your progress;
  • Send you email about MyFreeTutor.org;
  • Ask you for your feedback to improve MyFreeTutor.org; and
  • Respond to your email requests.

Personally identifying information of students collected by RSVP will be limited to a user name (first name and last initial only), e-mail address, teacher’s name, grade, school and progress in subject matter as identified by teacher and tutor.  Personally identifying information collected from tutors will be limited to user name, email address and information provided on the tutor enrollment form (full name, email address, address, phone number, birth date, gender and ethnic information, if you are a veteran, employer name and highest educational level).  RSVP does not collect personal information from site visitors other than students and tutors as previously mentioned.

The Web Site also contains links to other web sites with which RSVP has no affiliation. Please be aware that RSVP is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage our Users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web Site.

RSVP may also collect statistical information about its Users, which is not personally identifiable. Such statistical information helps us improve the quality and usability of the Web Site and improve our marketing to others who may benefit from it. 

When you visit our Web Site, we may place a text file, called a cookie, in the browser directory of your computer's hard drive. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on your web browser and later retrieve. Cookies do not contain your personal information. The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information and your navigational activity.  The domain name of the site server transmitting the cookies is MyFreeTutor.org.   Most browsers allow you to decline cookies, but if you elect to do so, these pages may not display properly. While cookies will be stored in your hard drive for your next visit with us, you are free to delete cookies after your session, and your web browser’s help system will provide you with instructions on how to disable and delete cookies from your computer system.

Like many Web Site owners, RSVP may use log files to collect aggregate information.  This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track Users’ movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. 

Sharing Information

 

RSVP does not share personal information with third parties unless prior permission has been obtained from the User.

 

Although we make every effort to preserve User privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, or when a court order or legal process served on the Web Site.

 

RSVP will not share information about you with any person or company except as described above.
