Service Modifications
ZedTutors reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes to or discontinue any of the Services at any time. Any description of the Services provided by ZedTutors is not a representation that the Services are working or will always work in that manner, as ZedTutors is continuously updating the Services, and these updates may not always be reflected in the Terms of Use.

Mobile Use
The Services may offer features and services that are available to you via your mobile device. These features and services may include, without limitation, the ability to upload content to the Services, receive messages from the Services, download applications to your mobile phone or access features from the Services (collectively, the "Mobile Features"). We may charge for Mobile Features and these charges will be disclosed prior to completion of registration for the Mobile Feature. Also, standard messaging, data and other fees may be charged by your carrier. Carrier fees and charges will appear on your mobile bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Mobile Features and certain Mobile Features may be incompatible with your carrier or mobile device. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues. If you change or terminate your mobile account, you agree to promptly update your ZedTutors account information so that any messages or notices from ZedTutors regarding the Services are sent to you and not to the person who is assigned your old number. For any of our mobile apps, you agree that the third-party store or platform through which our apps are available (including, without limitation, the Apple App Store) is not liable to you in connection with our apps.

Email and Text Message Notifications
Notifications or receipts from ZedTutors will be delivered to you by email at the address you provided to ZedTutors when you created your account or as later updated. You may also opt to receive text message reminders from ZedTutors, as a courtesy to you. You are still responsible for compliance with the Terms of Use, whether or not you receive such reminders via email, text or otherwise. ZedTutors will not ask you for your personal information, account username, and password, or any information about you or your method of payment via email or text message. If you receive such an email or text message purportedly from ZedTutors, it is fraudulent and ZedTutors will have no responsibility for any misuse of any information you provide as a result.

Account Cancellation
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.

Linking Policy
ZedTutors grants you the revocable permission to link to the web sites on which these Terms of Use are posted; provided, however, that any link to such a web site: (a) must not frame or create a browser or border environment around any of the content on such web sites or otherwise mirror any part of such web sites; (b) must not imply that ZedTutors or the Services are endorsing or sponsoring any third-party or its products or services, unless ZedTutors has given the third-party prior written consent; (c) must not present false information about, or disparage, tarnish, or otherwise, in ZedTutors's sole opinion, harm ZedTutors or its products or services; (d) must not use any ZedTutors trademarks without the prior written permission from ZedTutors; (e) must not contain content that could be construed as distasteful, offensive or controversial or otherwise objectionable (in ZedTutors's sole opinion); and (f) must be owned and controlled by you or the person or entity placing the link, or otherwise permit you to enable such link subject to these Terms of Use. By linking to a ZedTutors Website, you agree that you do and will continue to comply with the above linking requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Terms of Use, ZedTutors reserves the right to prohibit linking to any ZedTutors Website for any reason in our sole and absolute discretion.

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.

Learning Courses
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.

Tutoring Services
ZedTutors may also make online tutoring services available through ZedTutors Websites ("Tutoring Services"). The following sections that include "Tutors" or "Tutoring" in the heading relate specifically and only to Tutoring Services. If there is any conflict between this Tutoring Services section and these Terms of Use, the tutoring sections control within respect to the Tutoring Services. Tutoring sections are not applicable to other ZedTutors Services or Websites or any area outside of the tutoring services websites. You understand and agree that ZedTutors acts only as an interface to facilitate communications between users and Tutors and to collect payment from users on behalf of Tutors. THE TUTORING SERVICES COMPRISE AN ONLINE PLATFORM WHICH FACILITATES THE CONNECTION BETWEEN USERS AND TUTORS FEATURED ON THE SITE AND VIA THE SERVICES.

If there is a conflict between these User Terms of Service and terms and conditions or policies posted for a specific area of the ZedTutors Websites, Services or ZedTutors Content, the later terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the ZedTutors Websites, Services or ZedTutors Content, as applicable. Policies relating to Tutoring Services may be found here, and are hereby incorporated into this Agreement. PLEASE NOTE THAT ZEDTUTORS DOES NOT CONFIRM THE INFORMATION IN A TUTOR’S PROFILE, THEIR COMPETENCY, THEIR BACKGROUND NOR THEIR PROFICIENCY IN THE SUBJECT MATTERS WHERE THEY OFFER THEIR SERVICES. ZEDTUTORS CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE SERVICES PERFORMED BY TUTORS FOR USERS, OR THE ACTIONS OF ANY TUTORS, USERS OR OTHER USERS OF THE SITE AND SERVICES. ZEDTUTORS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF TUTORS, USERS, THIRD-PARTIES AND OTHER USERS OF THE SITE AND SERVICES. ACCORDINGLY, ANY MEETINGS (VIRTUAL OR OTHERWISE) BETWEEN USERS, TUTORS OR ANY OTHER THIRD-PARTIES AND ANY PURCHASES OF LESSON SERVICES PROVIDED BY TUTORS ARE DONE AT THE USER'S RISK, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. ZedTutors is not responsible for the use or exchange of any information or files between Tutors and users. Further, ZedTutors does not control, nor is it responsible for, the truth, accuracy, completeness, safety, timeliness, quality, legality or applicability of anything said or written by Tutors or users. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with others you may come into contact with as a result of your use of the ZedTutors Websites and Services.

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.

Your use of the ZedTutors Websites or Services may involve the exchange of file attachments between you and a ZedTutors Tutor. ZedTutors is not responsible or liable for the content of such attachments, and such attachments may be viewed by other ZedTutors users, or by the public generally. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume the risk arising from your downloading any such attachments and posting such attachments. [End of tutoring-specific Section].

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the ZedTutors Parties from and against any and all loss, liability, damages, judgments, claims, demands, costs, investigations, settlements, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or directly or indirectly relating to (a) your User Content; (b) your use of the Services or activities in connection with the Services; (c) your breach or anticipatory breach of these Terms of Use; (d) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; (e) information or material transmitted through your computer, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy or other right of any person or defames any person; (f) any misrepresentation made by you; or (g) the ZedTutors Parties' use of your information or User Content as permitted under these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, or any other written agreement between you and ZedTutors.

These indemnity obligations shall survive any expiration or termination of your relationship with ZedTutors.

Legal Disputes
If a dispute arises between you and ZedTutors, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you agree that we will use all reasonable means to resolve the dispute, by reference to representatives of the Governing body for each party if a remedy cannot be reached. Any legal redress shall be made under the laws of the Zambia.

Privacy Policy
Please refer to our Privacy Policy information on how we collect, use and disclose information from our users. You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Services is subject to our Privacy Policy.

Tax
Purchases through the Services may be subject to taxes in many states. Depending on the nature of the service you receive from us, this may be a sales tax and/or use tax. You are responsible for paying all such taxes.

Certain Payments and Renewals
Payment for certain Services is due in advance of each applicable membership period (e.g., monthly). MONTHLY MAY AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AND YOUR CREDIT CARD OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD WE HAVE ON FILE FOR YOU WILL BE CHARGED ON THE FIRST DAY OF EACH RENEWAL PERIOD UNTIL YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS TERMINATED BY US OR CANCELLED BY YOU. IF ANY OF OUR CHARGES ARE REJECTED FROM THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU HAVE INDICATED IS YOUR PREFERABLE PAYMENT METHOD, YOU AUTHORIZE US (WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU, UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW) TO, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION: (I) RETRY SUCH PAYMENT METHOD; AND/OR (II) COLLECT FROM ANY OTHER PAYMENT METHOD WE HAVE ON FILE FOR YOU. Also, for some of our paid Services, you may elect to temporarily "suspend" your membership, for example, during school breaks or vacation, for up to a total of 90 days in any one membership year (i.e., during each 12-month period following the commencement of your membership), and the period of your membership will be extended by the total amount of such suspended period(s). You agree to pay all applicable fees for your memberships and use of our paid Services, plus any applicable taxes or other charges as may be required, when due and payable. All fees and charges are payable in advance and non-refundable, including after cancellation, unless otherwise disclosed at the time of purchase. If you wish to cancel your membership in a Service (if available), please visit the customer support web area on the Services. Cancellation of memberships (if available) will take effect as detailed in the cancellation information for the specific Service you want to cancel.

Free Trial Memberships
We may from time to time offer free trials for some of our Services. Such trials may require you to register with a valid credit card to commence. Users that sign up for a free trial membership at a particular level will be automatically renewed at the promoted membership rate for that level at the end of the trial period unless the user cancels the membership at least before the end of the trial, unless the terms of the offer explicitly state otherwise. 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
We know that most of you have never and will never abuse the Services or any of the information, services or materials available through them. You agree to abide by The Honor Code. You may not use any of the solutions, answers, materials or information available on or through the Services, to cheat. Examples include: 1. Submitting any textbook solutions from the Services as your own to any class. 2. Using our questions and answers service to complete tests or homework when instructed not to use outside help. 3. Otherwise passing along any solutions, answers, materials or information from the Services as your own. 4. Any other violation of your instructor's or school's academic honor code. We will take swift action against anyone found violating this Honor Code. If ZedTutors is presented with evidence that its Services have been used in a manner contrary to its Honor Code or any other part of these Terms of Use, ZedTutors may, in its sole discretion, remove the materials and terminate the account of the involved users.

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.

Miscellaneous
Unless otherwise stated in these Terms of Use, if any provision of the Terms of Use is declared invalid, illegal or unenforceable, all remaining provisions continue in full force and effect. The failure of ZedTutors to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use is not a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles of the Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Non-performance of either party, except for the failure to make required payments, will be excused to the extent performance is delayed or rendered impossible by any reason where failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control of the non-performing party. This "Miscellaneous" section shall survive any expiration or termination of your relationship with ZedTutors.

Changes
ZedTutors may modify the Terms of Use including the linked policies contained herein from time to time ("Updated Terms"). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the ZedTutors Website so that they are accessible via a link on the home page, and that your use of our Services after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify), you agree to be bound by the then-current version of the Terms of Use, including any changes we may have made since the last time you used our Services. It is therefore important that you review the Terms of Use regularly to ensure you are aware of any such changes. The updated Terms of Use will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the updated Terms of Use, and will apply to your use of the Services from that point forward.

Entire Agreement
The then-current Terms of Use, including (a) any related policies and terms referenced in the Terms of Use and (b) any Additional Terms, are the entire agreement between you and ZedTutors regarding the Services. The Terms of Use may not be modified without the consent of a duly authorized representative of ZedTutors and will supersede and prevail over any terms or conditions you may include with any purchase order or other transaction document or communication with us, regardless of whether ZedTutors signs them or fails to object to them. This "Entire Agreement" section shall survive any expiration or termination of your relationship with ZedTutors.

1. Registration and Other Information You Provide
The Services may collect "Personal Information" (which is information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as your name, email address, phone number and national registration card number), account information (such as a password or other information that helps us confirm that it is you accessing your account) and demographic or other information (such as your level of education, gender, age or birthdate and zip code and information about your interests and preferences). We will also collect payment information (typically, credit card account information) if you choose to purchase products or services through the Services. Any information combined with Personal Information will be treated as Personal Information.
Some Services may allow you to use the Service to offer your own products or services for sale such as when you register as a tutor. If you use the Services for such purposes or in any other manner that may necessitate payment from ZedTutors to you, we may collect additional information from you, such taxpayer identification number, as necessary to facilitate payment and to comply with related legal obligations.

2. Your Profile, ZedTutors Forum and User Content
You may have the opportunity to create a profile, which consists of information about you, which may include Personal Information, photographs, information about your academic and work history, your interests and activities, your use of the Services and other information ("Profile"). Some of the information in your Profile may be visible to third parties or to everyone, depending on the nature of the information and the privacy settings you choose when you sign in to your account on the Service where you created your Profile. Your Profile may also be indexed by and displayed by internet search providers when someone searches for your name. ZedTutors does not control how frequently third-party search engines update their indexes; consequently their information may be outdated and still available for a period of time even if you discontinue use of the Service.
Note that in order to provide services and opportunities to you, educational organizations, scholarship providers and other third parties may be able to review certain information in your Profile for some of the Services, whether or not you have limited public access to that information. You may have the opportunity to control whether this information is shared, but some information may be shared automatically -- all as disclosed on the web site or other service where you created your Profile. ZedTutors does not share your contact information (email, full postal address or phone number) with those third parties unless you request or agree to that sharing. However, ZedTutors may send you information and offers from third parties and information about the Services, and you may not be able to opt-out from these messages without closing your account.
The Services may provide you the opportunity to participate and post content publicly in forums, through interactive features and through other communication functionality ("ZedTutors Forums"). You may choose, through such features or otherwise, to submit or post content, such as reviews, problems, suggestions, ideas, solutions, questions, answers, class notes, course outlines, comments, testimonials, feedback, messages, images, videos, text or other material ("User Content"). Your User Content may also be posted in your Profile. Please think carefully about what you post and before including Personal Information in your User Content. You may edit or remove your Profile information, but you may not be able to remove answers or postings or other uploaded User Content on some Services. To request removal of content you posted publicly on the Services, contact us. We will honour removal requests received from registered users, unless otherwise excepted by law, and where otherwise required by law. Other removal requests received, may, in our sole discretion, be honoured or refused. In some cases, we may remove only your Personal Information but maintain the rest of your User Content. Note that removal of public postings does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information posted.
Note that anything you post to a ZedTutors Forum may be public. If you choose to voluntarily disclose Personal Information in your Profile or a ZedTutors Forum, that information will be considered public information and the protections of this Privacy Policy will not apply.
In addition, the Services may allow members to communicate and collaborate with each other, including some Services that allow members to engage in one-on-one communication using a video chat or text chat feature. If you create an account, participate in a ZedTutors Forum or choose to communicate with others through the Services, certain information about you may be disclosed in connection with your or others' use of the Services, including certain information about you and your network (such as your name and profile photo, the number of your connections, and the names and pictures of your connections). Our servers may record and we may retain records of the content of any such user-to-user communications.
We allow other users to use contact information they have about you, such as your email address, to find you, including through contact importers and search, and they may also contact you through the Services.

3. Third Party Services, Social Media Platforms, and Information Third Parties Provide About You
Third parties may provide us with information about you. For example, if you are on a third party web site, and you opt-in to receive information from us, that third party will forward information about you to us so that we may contact you as requested. We also may supplement the information we collect with outside records from third parties in order to provide you with information, services or goods you have requested, to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We may combine the information we receive from those other sources with information we collect through the Services. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to the combined information. The Services may permit interactions between the Services and a third party web site or service, such as enabling you to "like" a product within our Services or "share" content to other web sites. If you choose to "like" or "share" content or to otherwise post information from or via the Services to a third party web site, feature or application, that information may be publicly displayed, and the third party web site may have access to information about you and your use of our Services. Similarly, if you post information on a third party platform that references ZedTutors or one of the Services, your post may be published on our Services in accordance with terms of that third party. These features may collect your IP address or other Device Identifier, which page you are visiting on our web site, and may set a cookie to enable the third party feature to function properly. Third party features and applications are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.
You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature through our Services (such as logging in through Facebook Connect or otherwise linking the Services with another web site or interactive service) or on a third party web site or service (such as one of our Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third party web site or service) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information. Information about you, including your name and profile photo, may be shown to other users of the Services if you are logged in through the Services or through a third party web site or service. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on our Services with that third party web site or service, which may then collect information about your visits to our Services and may publish that activity as you request to your profile or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share a purchase you made on ZedTutors.com with your connections on the third party web site). In some instances, we may require that you participate in the Services through a third party application or feature and, if you choose not to authorize or use the required third party application or feature, you will not be able to use the applicable Service.
The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that third party web site and service. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected.

4. Referral Features
The Services may offer referral features whereby users may use an email tool to invite friends to use the Services using a one-time email. ZedTutors stores this information for the purpose of verification, as well as tracking the success of our referral program. ZedTutors will not use those referred email addresses for any other purpose (unless, of course, the referred user comes to a Service and registers as a user, in which case ZedTutors may use the email address provided by the referred user in accordance with this Privacy Policy).

5. Information ZedTutors Collects Automatically When You Access the Services
Like other web sites and online services, we and our third party service providers may automatically collect certain "Usage Information" whenever you access and use the Services, including browsing content on a ZedTutors Service or clicking on a ZedTutors advertisement.
Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Services (if applicable), the search terms you entered into a search engine that lead you to our Services (if applicable), all of the areas within our Services that you visit (including information about products you use, how you use certain services, the time you spend on each page or using each service, and any ads you may view), and the time of day you used the Services. Usage Information also includes information collected from interactive services (including our ereader), such as notes you take and engagement during study sessions, among other information.
We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including to tell you about people or events nearby, to provide special offers, to serve advertisements, to select appropriate content to display to you, and to enhance or otherwise improve the Services.
In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier") for any computer, mobile phone or other device (any, a "Device") you may use to access the Services. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access a Service, and our servers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access a Service. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.
Usage Information is collected via tracking technologies, including:
Cookies and Log Files: ZedTutors uses cookies, log files or similar technologies to track usage of our Services. A cookie is a data file that resides on your computer, and which allows ZedTutors to recognize you when you return using the same computer and web browser. If your browser settings do not allow cookies, you will not be able to use our Services as fully as intended. Log files are the record of your visits to the Services and include Usage Information. Like the information you enter at registration or in your Profile, cookie and log file data is used to customize your experience when you use the Services. Third parties may also set cookies as you interact with the Service. Third parties may use session IDs and cookies to make it easier for you to use our Services and place orders, to deliver online advertising, and for other purposes.
Web Beacons: We, as well as our affiliate program partners, service providers, and other third parties, may employ a software technology called web beacons (a.k.a. clear gifs), that help us better manage content on our Services by informing us of what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users for our affiliate program. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. This information is used to help improve the overall quality and experience of our Services. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' Personal Information.
An Embedded Script: is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer or other device from our server or a third party service provider and is deactivated or deleted when you disconnect from the Services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use information about you, including Personal Information, the information you provide in your Profile, User Content, and Usage Information to: (1) process a transaction you initiate, allow you to participate in features we offer and provide customer service, such as responding to questions, complaints or comments; (2) tailor content, recommendations, information and offers we display to you, both on the Services and elsewhere online (this includes sending or displaying special offers or advertisements from us or third-parties); (3) email or otherwise provide you with information, products, services, or suggestions; (4) process your registration with our Services, including verifying your e-mail address is active and valid; (5) improve the Services and our products, and for internal business purposes, including the measurement of ad effectiveness; (6) contact you with regard to your use of the Services and, in our discretion, changes to our policies; and (7) permit other ZedTutors users to contact you, and vice versa; (8) to provide you with location features and services (e.g., telling you about local deals and events); (9) to assess your employment application for a position with ZedTutors (or an entity related to ZedTutors) and prepare related governmental and internal statistics reports; and (10) as described in the Privacy Policy and for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your information or otherwise with your consent. We may also use non-personal information, including information that has been de-identified (typically by using a mathematical process known as a “hash”), to make inferences about you and offers and content you may be interested in, to serve you with relevant advertising, and to allow others to do so.
Please note that information submitted on the Services via a "Contact Us" or other similar function may not receive a response. We will not use the information provided via these functions to contact you for marketing purposes unrelated to your request unless you agree otherwise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

INFORMATION SHARING
ZedTutors does not share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent. ZedTutors may share non-Personal Information, such as aggregate user statistics, de-identified information, demographic information, and Usage Information with third parties, including advertisers, content providers, and analytics providers; and third parties may collect non-Personal Information when you visit the Services. Demographic information may include information related to your gender, age, graduation years, as well as other scholastic-related information. We may create de-identified information by removing all information that can be used to directly identify or contact you as a specific individual, such as your name and email address. We also may share your Personal Information with third parties with your consent, as disclosed at the time you provide us with information, and as described below or otherwise in this Privacy Policy:
1. Educational Institutions: We work with colleges, universities, scholarship providers and educational institutions ("Educational Institutions") to provide targeted recruiting and outreach to some of our members. For some of our Services, we may allow Educational Institutions to review information in your Profile (such as hometown, grade point average, and graduation year), whether or not you have chosen to restrict public access to some of that information. We do not share your contact information (email address, full postal address or phone number) with these Educational Institutions without your consent, but we may send you information on their behalf. This is a fundamental element of some of our free Services. In addition, you may indicate that you would like to receive additional information from Educational Institutions or other third parties and we will then share your information with those parties so that they may contact you per your request. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of third parties. If you later decide that you no longer want to receive communications from a third party, you will need to contact that third party directly.
2. When You Request That We Share Your Information: We may offer opportunities and features through the Services that are brought to you by a third party or that otherwise involve sharing your information with a third party. If you request or agree at that time to have your information shared, your information will be disclosed to that third party (or parties) and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of that third party. This includes, without limitation, instances in which you use our Services to purchase products or services provided, in whole or part, by third parties. You also may request, sometimes through your use of an interactive feature or social media feature, that we share information about you with a third party or publicly, and we will typically do so under those circumstances.
3. Service Providers: We will share your Personal Information with third parties to provide services to us or you in connection with the Services, but subject to confidentiality obligations, which limit their use and disclosure of such information. For example, we may provide your Personal Information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as shipping your order, sending our emails, or offering customer service. If you purchase any products or services, our billing partner will receive billing and financial information (e.g., credit card numbers) necessary to process your charges, including your postal and e-mail addresses, depending on your payment method.
4. Administrative, Legal Reasons & Academic Integrity Investigations: We may also disclose your information, including Personal Information, in response to a subpoena or when required by law; in response to bankruptcy proceedings; to defend our rights; in response to a written request from law enforcement regarding an investigation into criminal activity that may have occurred through or in any way using ZedTutors's Services or property; to provide information to a claimed owner of intellectual property who claims that content you have provided to us infringes on their rights; upon request of an academic institution connected to an investigation into academic integrity; to protect and/or defend any applicable Terms of Use or other policies applicable to the Services; or to protect the personal safety, rights, property or security of any organization or individual. We may also use Device Identifiers, including IP addresses, to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with copyright owners, Internet service providers, wireless service providers or law enforcement agencies in our discretion. These disclosures may be carried out without notice to you.
5. Business Transitions: ZedTutors may share Personal Information with its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, primarily for business and operational purposes. In the event that ZedTutors goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process, your information, including Personal Information, will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on Services of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information. This Privacy Policy will become binding upon the new owner of the information until amended.
6. Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions: We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions ("Promotion") that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to governing terms, conditions or official rules, which may contain specific requirements of you, including allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information, such as your name and shipping address, may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfilment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners list.
7. Employment Applications: If you apply for a job through the Services, ZedTutors or its service provider may ask you to provide self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender, and ethnicity). Providing such self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide such information, ZedTutors or its service provider may submit that information to the appropriate government or regulatory agencies to fulfil reporting requirements and use that information to defend against employment-related complaints.




THIRD PARTY AD NETWORKS AND ANALYTICS PROVIDERS
ZedTutors works with network advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers and other vendors for advertising and analytics services, including to serve our and third party advertisements on and through the Services and elsewhere online; to provide us with information regarding traffic on the Services, including the pages viewed and the actions users take when visiting the Services; and to provide us with information regarding the use of the Services and the effectiveness of our advertisements. For example, if you click on a ZedTutors advertisement, our service provider(s) may be able to tell us the advertisement you clicked on and where you were viewing the advertisement; likewise, if you click on an ad you see on our Services, our service provider(s) may be able to tell which page you were visiting on our Services and pass that information to the advertiser. The advertisements you see may be served by one or more third parties, who may use information collected over time about your activities on the Services, and other web sites and services, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.
ZedTutors may share non-Personal Information, such as de-identified (including hashed) information, location information, demographic information, and Usage Information with these third parties. Third party advertising and analytics providers may collect similar information through the Services, they may set and access their own tracking devices (including cookies and web beacons) and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you and your online browsing activities. Some of these third parties may collect Personal Information over time when you visit the Services or other web sites and services.


MOBILE USE If you use the Services through a mobile device or one of our mobile applications, we will collect Usage Data, which may include your mobile carrier. If you have opted-in to share your precise location with us through one of our mobile applications, you can turn off the collection of precise location information through your Device settings. We may still be able to infer your approximate location through other information we collect, such as IP address. You agree that ZedTutors may store and use that information for security purposes (for example, for user verification and to ensure that ZedTutors's APIs are being used appropriately). You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Services through a mobile device may cause data to be displayed on and through your mobile device which may be viewed by your mobile carrier or other access provider.
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Software on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. 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. Requests to change your email preferences or unsubscribe from all emails may not be made through this email address, but rather must be submitted through one of the channels set out in the previous section.
Even if your account is closed, information may remain in backup records and we may retain certain data if it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data, account recovery or if required by law. All retained data will continue to be subject to the applicable privacy policy for the Service. Also, if you have posted content on or through the Services, such as in ZedTutors Forums, we may not be able to delete 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.


TESTIMONIALS
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.


SECURITY
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.


CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY
ZedTutors may update this Privacy Policy at any time and any changes will be effective upon posting of the revised Privacy Policy unless otherwise specified. In the event that there are material changes to the way we treat your Personal Information, we will display a notice through the Services of the updated Privacy Policy. We may also notify you in other ways in our discretion, such as through contact information you have provided. Your continued use of any of the Services after the effective date of the revised Privacy Policy will constitute your consent to the new Privacy Policy. However, we will not make material changes to how we treat previously collected Personal Information without first giving you the chance to consent (opt-in or opt-out). Note, however, that you may need to consent to our new Privacy Policy in order to continue to use the Services.
