What information does Live Music Tutor collect from your child and how is it used?

The personal information that Live Music Tutor initially collects from children during registration includes their first and last name, their email address (in some cases this may be the parent's email address) and the parent or guardian’s email address. This information is used by the company to initiate contact so as to obtain verifiable parental consent and to establish a student landing page that can be accessed once parental consent is received. If we do not receive verifiable parental consent in a reasonable time (three weeks from the initial application) or if you notify us that you are refusing to consent, this information will be deleted from our database.

Your Child will be able to make their personal information publicly available.

Once we have received consent your child will receive a login confirmation that will take them to their personal profile page. Live Music Tutor has social media functions as a primary component of the sites and the act of engaging in online lessons involves your child sharing their personal information (the video image and audio interaction of a live lesson are ruled to be “Personal Information” under the COPPA Regulations). Because of this, we encourage you to monitor and supervise your child’s activities during his or her time on our sites. Activities on the social media portions of the site include (a) sending and receiving messages via the internal email system from Live Music Tutor and other users of the website; (b) reading and posting messages on the various Live Music Tutor message boards: (c) personalizing areas of their profile page, including being able to upload photos of themselves and communicating with other students and instructors. There are certain controls in “Account Settings/Privacy” that allow you or your child to limit the sharing of certain types of information. But, these controls do not negate the necessity of providing your consent for your child to access our service.

In addition to any pictures or videos that your child may post on their student page, all lessons that your child takes on www.livemusictutor.com are recorded and archived for a period of two weeks, then deleted. These videos are only available to; your child through your logged in student page, the instructor from their personal page and select Live Music Tutor personnel. The reason for maintaining these video files is threefold, (1) to enable you and your child to review past lessons in order to aid learning, (2) allow the instructor to view the past lesson as an aid to preparing future lessons and (3) as an added safety measure.

Types of information collected by Live Music Tutor and how is it used?

The types of personal information that we collect and save from your child online will include his or her e-mail address and your email address, demographic and computer information, information about your child’s interest in and use of the Live Music Tutor site as well as other information described in full in our Privacy Policy. We do not collect any information from your child other than what is reasonably necessary to participate in activities on Live Music Tutor.

Our Website may send a “cookie” to your computer. We use cookies to identify which areas of our site are visited, so the next time your child visits the site, we can better personalize the content that he or she sees on our website. Most browsers can be set to disable the use of Cookies. However, if you disable Cookies you may not be able to use certain functionality on our website correctly or at all.

We may also use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your child’s use of our Website and those of our affiliates, and your use of special promotions or newsletters. The information we collect by Web Beacons allows us to statistically monitor the number of people that open our emails and why they opened our emails. Our Web Beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our Website or those of our affiliates. We do not link non-personal information from Web Beacons to personal information without your permission.

Your right to review, have deleted and refuse further collection and use of your child’s information.
