In order to help you get the most out of our service, we collect User submitted personally identifiable information (“PII”) when you use the Service. For example, we may collect information you provide when you create an account. Such information may include your name, address, password, zip code, email address, and phone number for communication purposes. Information may be submitted to the Site or Apps or via telephone or email when communicating with Busy Brains, LLC. For students and parents, we may collect information related to your documentation of and payment for tutoring sessions; tutoring questions related to homework or your studies; teacher feedback of a student (once the parent provides consent for submission); and content you upload for the purposes of transmitting it to another user or for public display on the Site or Apps.

We also gather non-PII when you use the Service, including type of browser you use, access time, pages viewed, your IP address; and we collect information about the computer or mobile device you use to access the Service, including without limitation operating system and unique device identifiers and mobile network information. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the Site. Busy Brains, LLC may publish these statistics or share them with third parties without including PII. Some browsers allow you to indicate that you would not like your online activities tracked, using “Do Not Track” indicators (“DNT Indicators”),
Data transmission and storage
Busy Brains, LLC uses industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the Site and the Busy Brains, LLC network (collectively, the “System.”) Once information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security.

Unfortunately, even with these measures, Busy Brains, LLC cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that Busy Brains, LLC makes no such guarantee, and that you use the Service at your own risk.
