Welcome to Lessonface.com, the online website and platform for face-to-face music lessons (collectively, the “Platform”), operated by Lessonface.com, Inc (the “Operator”, “we”, “us”, “our”).
Personal Identifiable Information (PII). In order to complete your registration with Operator and to facilitate lessons and communications between students and teachers, we request your contact information, which may include without limitation your name, email address, interests, and telephone number. The amount of PII you provide is entirely up to you. Some minimum amount of PII may be required to complete registration with the website or Platform. PII provided by teachers through the Platform may be available to Platform visitors/prospective students/students to facilitate the scheduling of lessons. Additionally, you may share your information directly through the Platform with students or teachers, as applicable, to confirm and facilitate lessons. We may share your PII with third parties for promotional purposes with your permission.
Non-Personal Information. You may also provide to Operator non personally identifiable information, such as interests, background, or age, also known as demographic and profile data. Though this information is optional, we may use it to improve our sites and/or tailor your experience on our sites, showing you content that we think you might be interested in and displaying content according to your preferences. We may also share this information with affiliates or third parties as we deem appropriate.
Usage Information. In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, we may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about subscribers’ use of Operator’s Lessonface.com website. This information is not personally identifiable and will be used to find out how subscribers use our Platform and sites. For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on the Lessonface site, from which sites subscribers came, and to what sites subscribers go. The collection of this information allows us to optimize the functionality of the sites. We may also share this information with affiliates or third parties as we deem appropriate.
Payment Information. PII you provide concerning the making or receiving of payments through our Platform may be shared with third-parties to facilitate the making of payments.
· The third parties used by the site to make disbursements to teachers, depending on the manner in which teachers choose to receive disbursements, are Stripe and Bank of America (direct deposit) and PayPal
(online payments to your PayPal account) . If you as a teacher would like to receive disbursement by direct deposit, you may need to provide us with additional PII including your bank account, routing number, bank name, and your street address. If you as a teacher would like to receive disbursement via PayPal, we would need to receive your PayPal user ID, usually the email associated with PayPal. We will share teacher payment information with these third parties as necessary to facilitate disbursements of funds associated with lessons taught by teachers. Bank of America, Stripe, and PayPal have their own respective privacy policies which govern how your information is handled by them.
· We will take reasonable steps to safeguard any teacher’s PII that we retain for making disbursements to teachers via paper check or otherwise.
