Like most website operators, Intervene collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our Site.
Additionally, certain visitors to Intervene’ Site choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with us online – by purchasing packages of tutoring hours – are asked to provide additional information, such as the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Intervene also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify our visitors, however, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described below. A User browsing the Site without registering an account or affirmatively providing personally identifiable information to Intervene does so anonymously.
Intervene may collect personally identifiable information from customers in a variety of ways. Personally identifiable information may include (i) contact data (such as a customer’s name, mailing and e-mail addresses); (ii) financial data (such as amount purchased on our site) ; and (iii) demographic data (such as a customer’s zip code, or school name). If you communicate with Intervene by e-mail; post messages to forums; make telephone or cell phone calls, communicate through electronic devices or other interactive devices; complete online forms, surveys or contest entries; or communicate with Intervene by any means, any information provided in such communication may be collected by Intervene. Intervene may also collect information about how customers use our Site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Site, or the domains from which customers originate.
Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
It is Intervene’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect through the Site, e-mail, phone, or any other communications we have with you. We treat the confidential information you share with us, such as students’ academic performance and any financial information, with the utmost respect. Intervene will not disclose student records with third parties under any circumstance, except as required by applicable law.
We may, however, share a student’s information with the tutor(s) who may or will be providing tutoring to the student so that they may evaluate the behavior, engagement and personalize and tailor the tutoring to the student. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Intervene. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below in the section ‘How Intervene Uses Information’. We also do not collect personally identifying information on students. We only collect student first and last names, school, and teacher name at this time. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.
Intervene and our analytics and marketing providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you and to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.
Third Parties, with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity, use LSOs such as HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs.
Intervene may use personally identifiable information collected through the Site for the specific purposes for which the information was collected; to contact Users regarding Intervene’ live-learning platform; to communicate to Users regarding products and services offered through Intervene, its parent, subsidiaries, and trusted affiliates; and otherwise to enhance Users’ experience with Intervene. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving these marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, accessing the email preferences in your account settings page, or you can contact us at email@example.com. Intervene may also use information collected through the Site for research regarding the effectiveness of the Site and the business planning, marketing, advertising and sales efforts of Intervene, its parent, subsidiaries, and trusted affiliates.
Intervene may disclose personally identifiable information collected from Users to its parent, subsidiaries and other related companies, trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners who will use the information for the purposes outlined above, as necessary to provide the services offered by or through Intervene and to provide the Site itself, and for the specific purposes for which the information was collected. These companies are not permitted to use your personally identifiable information in any other way.
Intervene may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from Users to investors and potential partners. Finally, Intervene may disclose or transfer personally identifiable information collected from Users in connection with or in contemplation of a sale of its assets or business or a merger, consolidation, or other reorganization of its business.
To the extent applicable, if a User’s personally identifiable information changes (such as a User’s zip code), or if a User no longer desires to receive non-account specific information from Intervene, Intervene will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, delete, and/or remove that User’s previously-provided personal data. This can be done by emailing a request to Intervene at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Intervene may disclose personally identifiable information at the request of law enforcement or governmental agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, to establish, protect, or exercise Intervene’ legal or other rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law. Intervene may disclose personally identifiable information in order to protect the rights, property, or safety of a User or any other person. Intervene may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate or prevent a violation by User of any contractual or other relationship with Intervene or the perpetration of any illegal or harmful activity.
Intervene discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process transactions on our behalf or to provide tutoring services, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Intervene does NOT permit access to or the release, transfer, or other communication personally identifiable information contained in education records to any third party. See below for FERPA regulations: Under the FERPA regulations, “disclosure” means “to permit access to or the release, transfer, or other communication of personally identifiable information contained in education records to any party, by any means, including oral, written, or electronic means.”34 CFR § 99.3 (“Disclosure”) (emphasis added). The regulations define “personally identifiable information” so that it includes, but is not limited to: a. The student’s name b. The name of the student’s parent or other family member; c. The address of the student or student’s family; d. A personal identifier, such as the student’s social security number or student number; e.

Intervene is committed to safeguarding the information each User entrusts to Intervene and believes that every User should know how it utilizes the information collected from each User. The Site does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age online. The Site allows Teacher and Administrator users to enter Student First, Middle and Last names with current Grade level and subject for registration. The system creates auto-generated student IDs for purposes of internal identification and connection on Intervene’s platform. The Teacher Users of the Site may input student First, Middle, and Last names and may not, according to our Terms and Conditions of using the site, input any personally identifiable information for children under the age of 13 years.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits a User that resides in California to request certain information regarding Intervene’ disclosures of personally identifiable information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please email Intervene at email@example.com.
