We require the consent of a parent or legal guardian as the legal basis of collecting, processing and using personally identifiable information from anyone, in the United States of America, under the age of 18; and, in all international jurisdictions outside the United States of America, from anyone under the legal age of consent. A parent or legal guardian provides consent by actions such as submitting an application for Private Tutoring Sessions, submitting payment for Private Tutoring Sessions, or otherwise contacting Us and providing any such information by themselves or through a representative.
