Personal information means information about an identifiable individual or information that permits an individual to be identified. It does not include business contact information, such as name, title, business address and business telephone number when used for business communications.
INSTACLASSES takes responsibility for maintaining and protecting the personal information under our control. We review this policy and our personal data protection practices regularly to ensure that we are in compliance with applicable legislation and current best practices.
We only collect personal information as required to meet the purposes that we have identified. We do not indiscriminately collect or retain personal information. INSTACLASSES typically collects personal information that is voluntarily provided by the individual in question. At times, however, personal information is obtained from other sources, such as government bodies or third parties such as employers, references and service providers, as permitted by law. Where the purpose for the collection of personal information is unclear, you can write to us at email@example.com to provide an explanation of the purpose for the data collection. Our reason for collecting personal information about teachers, students, parents, staff and consultants is to establish and maintain our contractual or other business relationship with that individual. The purpose for collecting personal information about teachers and students is primarily to facilitate the provision of educational teaching services online, including to allow students to quickly and easily assess the professional and educational background of tutors, as well as allowing us to communicate effectively with our teachers, students and parents and to maintain mailing lists. We may also use your personal information to:
As appropriate, INSTACLASSES will ask for specific consent to collect, use and disclose personal information, including for the purposes of completing or arranging for the completion of background checks and other searches. Such a request and your consent to such request may be given in writing or orally. In some cases, consent can be implied through an individual relationship or conduct with us, depending on the sensitivity of the information. Personal information supplied to us is confidential and we do not disclose the information to any third party except with actual or implied consent, or as permitted or required by law. We do not exchange or sell personal information. INSTACLASSES may use third party service providers from time to time to carry out certain functions for us such as printing, storage, shredding or document scanning. Where we use such outside service providers, we require those third parties to protect personal information in the same manner in which we protect it and to not use or disclose it for any purposes except as directed by INSTACLASSES.
We automatically collect certain information about you when you access or use our website or the mobile application or transact business with us, including:
We strive to maintain personal information in as accurate, complete and up-to-date a form as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. We protect personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information, regardless of format. Our security safeguards include premises security and restricted access to files containing personal information. Depending upon the information under our control, we also use technological safeguards such as security software and firewalls to prevent hacking or unauthorized computer access, internal passwords and security policies.
