Information we collect
Information you provide us:
Information we collect from other sources:
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Service. For example, we may collect information about you from other users, identity verification services, credit bureaus, mailing list providers and publicly available sources. If you log into your account through sign-in services, like Facebook Connect or Google Authenticator, you provide GoPeer with permission to access certain information about you such as your Facebook User ID, user profile, friends list, user graph and profile picture. User generated content posted through certain social networking preferences (e.g. pages you “Like” or “Follow”) may be viewed by the general public. Accordingly, GoPeer cannot ensure the privacy of any PII included in such User generated content.
When you use the Service, a location feature exists whereby it will automatically collect your geolocation information. In such event, the Service will use and share such location to enable users to determine which users in their network are nearby. GoPeer may also use location information to provide information and advertising to users. IF YOU WANT TO STOP THE AUTOMATIC COLLECTION OF YOUR LOCATION INFORMATION, YOU MAY DO SO BY USING THE PRIVACY SETTINGS ON YOUR BROWSER AND/OR ON YOUR DEVICE. FOR MOBILE APP USERS, YOU MAY ALSO UNINSTALL THE APP.
Data transmission and storage
GoPeer uses industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the Site and the GoPeer network (collectively, the “System.”) Once information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security. GoPeer also uses firewalls and hardware monitoring across our System to protect against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, even with these measures, GoPeer cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that GoPeer makes no such guarantee, and that you use the Service at your own risk.
Deleting, Modifying, or Correcting Your Information
If you have an account with us, you can access, correct, delete, or modify the personal information you provided in your account settings.
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete the personal information we have collected from you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that deletion requests are subject to certain limitations, for example, we may keep information as required or permitted by law or to process outstanding transactions.
If you elect to pay for tutoring lessons with a credit card, we will collect your name, credit card number, expiration date, and address information associated with the account. All financial information, other than credit card numbers, is stored and encrypted in our System in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. We do not store credit card numbers.
This Service is not intended for use by children under 13 years of age. GoPeer does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide your contact information or any other personally identifiable information to GoPeer. If you are the parent or legal guardian of someone under the age of 13 who may have provided us with information without your knowledge or consent, please contact us to have this information removed. All contact, including tutoring sessions, between a tutor and any minor should, of course, take place only in a supervised setting.
Legal requests and business transfers
Please remember to help keep the Site secure by never sharing your username or password. If you think your password may have been compromised, please change it immediately or contact GoPeer for additional assistance. GoPeer may send you email communications periodically detailing new features or promotions on the Site. You may unsubscribe from these messages by using the link at the bottom of the email. We may also send you email messages about the status of your account or any notices as required by law. You may not opt-out of receiving these administrative emails so long as you continue to use this voluntary service. If you wish to terminate your account, please contact us.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to admin@GoPeer.org.
