Privacy Policy

Last updated on August 24, 2019.

 

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how The Online Reading Strategist collects, transmits, and stores information about our Users. The term “you” or “You” or “User” or “Users” shall refer to Students, Coaches or any person or entity who views, uses, accesses, browses or submits any content or material to the Service (defined below). This Privacy Policy is not a contract and does not create any legal rights. Providing your information is voluntary and your use of the Service (defined below) after the effective date of this document constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, do not use the Service.

 

Information we collect

Information you provide to us

 

This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect via the website https://www.theonlinereadingstrategist(“Site”), online and mobile applications (“Apps”) (the Site and Apps collectively referred to as, the “Service”), email, telephone, electronic devices, and other interactive services. In order to help you get the most out of our service, we collect User submitted personally identifiable information (“PII”) when you use the Service. For example, we may collect information you provide when you create an account. Such information may include your name, address, password, zip code, email address, and phone number for communication purposes. Information may be submitted to the Site or Apps or via telephone or email when communicating with The Online Reading Strategist.  For students and parents, we may collect information related to your documentation of and payment for coaching sessions; coaching questions related to homework or your studies; teacher feedback of a student (once the parent provides consent for submission); and content you upload for the purposes of transmitting it to another user or for public display on the Site or Apps. As detailed in the “Data Transmission and Storage” section below, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption on any page of the Site where we ask you to submit personally identifiable information and encrypt all such information for safe storage in our system.

 

Information we collect automatically

 

We also gather non-PII when you use the Service, including the type of browser you use, access time, pages viewed, your IP address; and we collect information about the computer or mobile device you use to access the Service, including without limitation operating system and unique device identifiers and mobile network information. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the Site. The Online Reading Strategist may publish these statistics or share them with third parties without including PII. Some browsers allow you to indicate that you would not like your online activities tracked, using “Do Not Track” indicators (“DNT Indicators”),

 

Data transmission and storage

 

The Online Reading Strategist uses industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the Site and The Online Reading Strategist network (collectively, the “System.”) Once the information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security. The Online Reading Strategist also uses firewalls and hardware monitoring across our System to protect against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, even with these measures, The Online Reading Strategist cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that The Online Reading Strategist makes no such guarantee and that you use the Service at your own risk.

 

Financial information

 

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.
