The Tutor Doctor website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Tutor Doctor pages, or register with Tutor Doctor site or services, a cookie helps Tutor Doctor to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal data, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Tutor Doctor website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Tutor Doctor features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Tutor Doctor services or websites you visit.
Security of Your Personal Data
Tutor Doctor secures your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Tutor Doctor secures the personally identifiable data you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal data (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although Tutor Doctor will do its best to protect your personal data, Tutor Doctor cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to its site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once Tutor Doctor has received your information, it will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
You have the right to ask Tutor Doctor not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us in writing.
The Tutor Doctor site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of its partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that Tutor Doctor does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites
We may send you SMS text messages to provide you with updates or promotional offers. By providing us with your mobile phone number, you consent to receiving SMS text messages from use. We use a third-party service provider to send SMS text messages on our behalf. We may collect your mobile phone number, message content, and other information related to the SMS text message for the purpose of sending the message and improving our services. We will not sell or share your mobile number or other information with third parties for their own marketing purposes. Standard messaging and data rates may apply. You may opt-out of receiving SMS text messages from us at any time by replying to the message with the word “STOP” or contacting us using at email@example.com.
UK Resident Access Rights
If you reside in the UK, the DPA gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the DPA. Any access request will be subject to a reasonable fee to meet Tutor Doctor’s costs in providing you with details of the information it holds about you if your request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive.
The accuracy of your information is important. If the personal data you have provided to us changes, if you change email address, or any of the other information we hold, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
California Resident Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of the state of California, the following rights are available to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act.
You have the right to request that we disclose the categories of Personal Data collected, the categories of sources from which Personal Data is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collection, the categories of third parties with which we share Personal Data, and the specific pieces of Personal Data that we have about you. You also have the right to request that we provide your Personal Data to you in a readily useable format.
You have the right to request that we delete Personal Data that we collected from you. Note, however, that certain requests to delete Personal Data may be denied if we are required to retain the information as a matter of law, the information is necessary for detecting security incidents, exercising free speech, protecting or defending against legal claims, or for internal uses reasonably aligned with consumer expectations.
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercise of these privacy rights. We do not offer financial incentives related to the provision of data.
You have the right to designate an authorized agent to make these requests on your behalf.
To exercise any of these rights, contact us at email@example.com.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Storage of Your Personal Data
16 OR UNDER?
We are especially concerned to protect the privacy of children aged, 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under, please ask your parent/guardian’s permission before providing any personal data and ask them to help you whenever you provide us with any personal data.

Tutor Doctor welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Tutor Doctor has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Tutor Doctor at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
We will not sell or otherwise provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing.
We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company
- Protect and defend the rights or property of our Website and related properties
- Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing our Website or its related properties
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion boards, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
