Usage Of Information
HeyGuru requires this information to understand your needs and provide you with an enhanced service and customer experience. In addition, we will use it to establish contact between students and teachers once an assignment is confirmed.
A student’s name and address will be made known to the tutor only when a tutor has agreed to take up the teaching assignment. Conversely, a tutor’s contact details will only be made known to the student, only when the student has agreed to commence the assignment.
In addition, we may provide personal information to employees, consultants or other business or persons for the purpose of processing such information on our behalf. In such circumstances, we require that these parties agree to protect the confidentiality of such information and to comply with the terms of this privacy statement.

Your profile pages are typically publicly available. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these or any other public venues.
For example, if you choose to register for our services, you may have a tutor profile page on our database, containing your name and some basic information including your bio. You may also add additional optional information to your profile. Any information you choose to provide as part of your profile should reflect how much you want other users to know about you. You can request to review and revise your profile information at any time.
