Email and Text Message Notifications
You may request cancellation of your account at any time throughout your use of our Services. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, your account will only be cancelled and closed after all transactions have been processed including payment of assessed penalties or the cashing of any refund check, if applicable. ZedTutors may cancel your account in its sole discretion any reason, including but not limited to inactivity or misuse. Even if your account is cancelled, your photos, bibliographic and citation information, comments, likes, friendships, and any other data you have shared via the Services may persist within the Service after cancellation of your account (for example, if your content has been reshared by others).
Payments and Payment Processing
Validation: ZedTutors may require users of the Services to provide a valid method of payment) tied to an account at a financial institution when they register for an account (to ensure users are able to make applicable payments to ZedTutors) or upon ordering products or services. If a method of payment is required, you are responsible for ensuring that a valid method of payment is associated with your ZedTutors account at all times (either the original method of payment or a replacement). To confirm your method of payment is valid, ZedTutors may initiate a "pending" charge on the account. This charge will not be confirmed and, therefore, you will not be charged and it will simply disappear from your financial statement (usually within seven days - check with your financial institution for additional information). Please be aware that this pending charge may be initiated each time you edit the payment information for your account or place an order that cannot be processed. Authorization Holds: For certain transactions (e.g. tutoring sessions), we may authorize anticipated charges and taxes from your method of payment. The amount of the authorization sought will depend on the transaction and may also vary depending on the nature of the payment method you have provided. This is sometimes referred to as an authorization hold and these funds may not be available for your use. If the fees incurred exceed the authorization), we may automatically request additional authorization holds. If the provider for your method of payment rejects any authorization, you agree that we may charge any other method of payment we have on file for you (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law). At the conclusion or termination of an ongoing transaction (e.g., return of a rented book), if the charges do not exceed the amount due, the authorization for the amount not utilized will be released per the rules of your payment method provider. The timeframe for an authorization hold to be removed will depend on the policies of your financial institution. You are responsible and liable for ensuring that enough funds are available in connection with the payment method used at the time any transaction is processed.
Third-Party Links, Content and Applications
There may be links from the Services, or from communications you receive from the Services, to third-party web sites or online features. The Services also may include third-party content that we do not control, maintain or endorse. Functionality on the Services may also permit interactions between the Services and a third-party web site or online feature, including applications that connect the Services or your profile on the Services with a third-party site. For example, the Services may include a button enabling you to indicate, on your social networking page, that you "like" a specific product on the Services, or a feature that lets you post to your social networking page a link to a specific product or the ability to share content from the Services or your User Content with a third-party, which may be publicly posted on that third-party's web site. Using this functionality typically requires you to login to your account on the third-party website. We do not control any of these third-party sites or any of their content. Neither ZedTutors nor its service providers are responsible for the practices of any third-party. Accordingly, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we make no representations or warranties about the completeness, accuracy, or existence of any advertising, products, or other materials on or available from third-party sites or online features and any reliance placed by you on such materials is at your own risk. YOUR CORRESPONDENCE AND BUSINESS DEALINGS WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTIES FOUND THROUGH THE SERVICES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE PAYMENT AND DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, AND ANY TERMS, CONDITIONS, WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH ANY SUCH DEALINGS, ARE SOLELY BETWEEN YOU AND THE THIRD-PARTY.
Course Searches and Other Information Specific to an Academic Institution
We may tie your ZedTutors experience to information about the school you have identified to ZedTutors. For certain schools, the Services enable you to search and retrieve information about the materials required for particular courses. Please be aware that course information and assigned materials may change from time to time, and ZedTutors may not receive updated information from the school in a timely manner. ZedTutors is not responsible for any errors in the information provided in the course searches on the Services. Where specific school names or information relate to a specific school are displayed, they do not imply any endorsement or approval by the school. Except where specifically stated, ZedTutors has no affiliation with nor endorsement from any academic institution, and school names and information are used on the Services only to the extent necessary to organize, identify and permit use of information and sections of the Services that may be tailored to students of a particular school, or for other lawful uses.
Outlines, Study Guides and Notes
ZedTutors may permit users to upload content for the purpose of aiding others in the education and learning process. Users may not post content owned or created (except if it is in the public domain) by another person and hereby represent and warrant that: (i) each was created by the user and the user is the sole owner of all content posted to Services sites and all rights in such content (except for public domain content), including, without limitation, copyright and (ii) the posting of Content on or through the Services will not breach the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any third-party. Users agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing to any third-party for any content provided by you to the Services. Users of the Services agree to exclude from such content any documents, records or files made accessible to them by (a) your school, professor or other instructor, (b) any board of examination, (c) any author or publisher whose works have been used as part of studies or (d) any co-student. In creating study related content, students must respect any intellectual property rights that others may have in content. All content posted on the Services must be independently created, transformative and non-derivative. It should not be a transcript or recording of another's independent efforts, nor should it copy from materials purchased from or created by others. It should go beyond simply summarizing material covered in class or in written or recorded materials, but include information raised by students in or outside of class, and independent thought, analysis and commentary. Class notes, for example, must be substantially rewritten after class and include independent thought and analysis, research and information; notes that use a lecturer's words or that are not carefully reviewed, rethought and rewritten after class are not useful to or appreciated by students, and not permitted on the Services. Schools may have their own policies that place restrictions on a student's ability to make commercial use of study materials, even otherwise lawful materials that the student has independently created. You are responsible for becoming familiar with such policies, abiding by them, and discontinuing the use of any Services if such use is contrary to your school policy or the instruction of your professor. Class notes and study guides are solely for the specific use of students in the designated class for which they are created. Individuals who are not registered for a class may not purchase study guides, class notes or outlines for that class. Check the accuracy of all information from study guides, class notes, answers and outlines – to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, ZedTutors does not guarantee their accuracy or completeness, they are simply an aid to the study process.
Career Information and Jobs
ZedTutors's site may help students identify potential careers by providing a basic description for a variety of potential jobs. In some cases, ZedTutors may provide salary ranges for jobs, and point users to potential job opportunities in that field, based upon your interests and skills that you have represented to ZedTutors that you possess. ZedTutors may also help identify skills that are commonly required for those jobs and recommend learning materials that (combined with your own efforts) may help you achieve better proficiency with those skills. ZedTutors's attempts to assess your skills, identify gaps, and match those gaps to available learning materials may not be accurate in your particular circumstances. ZedTutors is simply one starting point, not an exhaustive list of all potential jobs or opportunities that might be available to you, and in a fast-changing employment landscape ZedTutors does not guarantee that the descriptions, salaries and job opportunities set out on our site are always up to date, reflect the current job market, or are applicable to the market in your area. We believe that the materials on our site, if you use them and apply yourself, can improve your skills and employability. Still, ZedTutors does not provide in-depth, individualized job counselling, and your success in landing a job in a particular career depends on a wide variety of factors. Our system's efforts to identify skills gaps, and recommend learning materials to address those gaps, may not result in improved employment prospects; completing recommended classes is in not a guarantee of finding employment in that field, or any other field. ZedTutors may also help students or alumni find internships or entry level jobs or other positions by accepting postings of job descriptions from third-party employers, through its Internships.com website or other ZedTutors Websites. ZedTutors does not confirm the accuracy of the postings, nor can ZedTutors know whether a particular position has been filled. ZedTutors may recommend particular job postings to particular users based upon available data about the position or the user, or other criteria, but the actual criteria for job positions lie within the discretion of the employer and ZedTutors makes no representations about the suitability of any candidate for any listed position.
ZedTutors may offer third-party learning videos and instructional material. ZedTutors does not hire or employ Instructors. We are not responsible for the content of such third-party materials, nor the advice provided in such materials. We do not control such materials and, as such, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, do not guarantee their reliability, validity, accuracy or truthfulness. Completing such courses may provide you with skills and experience that may help your career prospects, but as noted above, there are a large number of factors tied to your career and completing such courses is no guarantee of improved employability or enhanced career prospects.
Interaction with Tutors and Use of Lesson Services
ZedTutors acts as a technology service that facilitates provision of Lesson Services between users and Tutors and does not make decisions related to the provision of, or otherwise exercise control or supervision over, Lesson Services or contents thereof. ZedTutors does not endorse any Tutor and you are responsible for determining and confirming the identity and suitability of the Tutors interacted with as a result of your use, or use by any third-party, of the ZedTutors Websites and Services. ZedTutors does not endorse any Tutors. In addition, although the ZedTutors Tutor Terms of Service require Tutors to provide accurate information, we cannot confirm or test any Tutor's purported identity or academic qualifications or experience. We are not your agent or the agent of any Tutor. If you ever believe that another User or Tutor has violated law or is defrauding, threatening or endangering anyone, ZedTutors urges you to immediately contact the police directly for help.

You can cancel a free trial online on the Services or by contacting ZedTutors's customer support. After cancellation of a free trial, you may be able to continue as a Free Member with reduced benefits or access. Only one free trial membership is allowed per person. Subsequent registrations do not qualify for free trials. Unless the terms of a promotion state otherwise, for promotions that include "free" periods with "paid" periods, paid periods will elapse first. We may introduce new or additional features, services or materials to the Services which may be a part of, or priced separately from, existing levels of membership at our sole discretion.
The Honor Code
A message to students:
As current and former students, the ZedTutors team understands the pressures and time constraints school creates. That being said, we also know from the unfortunate tales of our peers that the risk you take by violating your school's code of academic integrity is not worth the reward. Copying solutions or posting unexplained final answers promotes completion without comprehension, and that's something we don't support on the Services.

We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile application.
Push Notification: We will send you push notifications if you agree to receive them to announce special deals and to send you your itinerary. You may opt-out of receiving these at any time by going to the phone settings and turning them off.
UPDATING YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND CONTROL OVER ZEDTUTORS EMAILS
You may be able to review the information you provided to us on a Service and make any desired changes to the information, or to the settings for your account on that Service, by logging in to your account for that Service and editing or deleting the information. All changes to your email settings and preferences must be made in your account preferences page on the applicable Service or, for email, by using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the ZedTutors email. However, we reserve the right to send you information on our behalf and on behalf of third parties through the Services. If you no longer want to receive information from us, you will need to close your account for that Service.
CLOSING YOUR ACCOUNT
If you wish to close your account with one of our Services, please send your request to Support@ZedTutors.com and we will remove your Personal Information and Profile, if applicable, from the active databases for the Service(s) you request. Please let us know which Service(s) you wish to close and send your request using an email account that you have registered with ZedTutors under your name. You typically will receive a response to a request sent via the contact-us page within five business days of our receiving it.

THIRD PARTY CONTENT, LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Certain content provided through the Services may be hosted and served by third parties, which may include third party widgets (such as those that allow you to "like" or "share" content with third party web sites and online services). In addition, the Services may link to third party web sites or content over which ZedTutors has no control and which are governed by the privacy policies and business practices of those third parties. In addition, third-party partners of ZedTutors from whom your order through the Services may have different privacy policies which apply to such partner's use of your information. These third parties may independently collect data. ZedTutors is not responsible for the privacy practices or business practices of any third party.
We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our Services in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us.
ZedTutors takes commercially reasonable security measures to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. For example, when you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number and CCV2 number on our checkout forms, that information is encrypted to help protect the communications between you and our payment partners.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, as in any real-life scenario, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Services, you can email us at Support@ZedTutors.com.
