How to Tutor Online ("Star Student") operates howtotutoronline.com.com and may operate other websites. It is Star Student's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Star Student collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Star Student's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Star Student's visitors use its website. From time to time, Star Student may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Star Student also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on howtotutoronline.com.com blogs/sites. Star Student only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Star Student's websites choose to interact with Star Student in ways that require Star Student to gather personally-identifying information.

Those who engage in transactions with Star Student are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Star Student collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Star Student. Star Student does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Star Student may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Star Student may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Star Student does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
