Information We Collect
In order to help you get the most out of our service, we collect user submitted personally identifiable information when you use the site. We only ask site users to submit the minimum amount of information necessary to use our service. Such information may include your name, password, zip code, email address, and phone number for communication purposes. Information may be submitted to the Sopico website or via phone or email when communicating with a Sopico representative. For students and parents, we may collect information related to your documentation of and payment for teaching sessions. For teachers, we may collect your Social Security number (SSN) or Federal Employer Identification number (FEIN) for tax purposes or to complete a background check. We also gather non-personally identifiable information when you use the site. Such data is compiled in aggregate and includes things like the referring URL and the type of browser you may be using to access the site. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the site.
If you elect to pay for teacher activity 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 is collected securely and encrypted in our system in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). If you are a teacher and elect to pay for a background check, we will collect credit card information to order a background check on your behalf. Payment information entered into our system solely to procure a background check will not be stored on our servers.
Sopico may share a minimum amount of information between teachers and students in order to facilitate the arrangement of teaching sessions. Sopico does not disclose or sell your personally identifiable information without your consent. We reserve the right to release non-personally identifiable information collected in aggregate, however.
Sopico 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 Sopico. 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 teachering sessions, between a teacher and any minor should, of course, only take place in a supervised setting.
