LinguaTute’s Data Protection Policy

LinguaTute is required to keep and process certain information about its staff members, contractors (including tutors), tutees, clients and other third parties in accordance with its legal obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR). 


This policy is in place to ensure all parties are aware of their responsibilities and outlines how LinguaTute complies with the core principles of the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018. 


The GDPR’s requirements apply to EU residents’ personal information and anyone in the organisation who processes that data.

Definition Of Key Terms

Data Controller – Is a legal or natural person, an agency, a public authority, or any other body who, alone or when joined with others, determines the purposes of any personal data and the means of processing it. Data controllers are key decision-makers. They have the overall say and control over the reason and purposes behind data collection and the means and method of any data processing. In this case, LinguaTute is the data controller.


Data Processor – Is a legal or a natural person, agency, public authority, or any other body who processes personal data on behalf of a data controller.


Data Subject – Is an “identified or identifiable natural person” from whom or about whom information is collected. An Identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


Personal data – Is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’), such as a name, home address or credit card number.

What Information Does LinguaTute Collect, And Why? 

We may collect and process the following data about you in the following ways: 

  • Personal details such as your name, date of birth, e-mail address, home address, country of residence, and other information provided by you in your tutor application, student signup, or any other registration provided by us and completed by you; these data are used to facilitate LinguaTute’s role of matching students with tutors. 
  • Any employment references or information necessary for the processing of your application to work as either an employee or self-employed tutor for LinguaTute.
  • Any information necessary for registering as a student or client with Linguatute or for creating an account with our online tutoring software, TutorCruncher.
  • Bank account details so that we may pay employees and contractors, and receive payment from clients.
  • Other information about you that is otherwise lawfully obtained including images from LinguaTute events, and quotes (with your consent).
  • Your name and email if you have signed up to the newsletter. We will use these to send you marketing content, blog posts, and updates about LinguaTute which may be of interest to you. If at any point you change your mind and decide that you do not wish to receive these emails from us, you can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time.


We will not share your information with any outside parties or companies, aside from those which are required for the provision of our services, including TutorCruncher and online video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, or others.


In accordance with the requirements outlined in Article 5 of the GDPR, personal data will be: 

  • Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals. 
  • Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes. 
  • Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed. 
  • Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay.
  • Kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods, insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals. 
  • Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.

The GDPR also requires that “the controller shall be responsible for, and able to demonstrate, compliance” with the principles set out above. 

LinguaTute is committed to processing and using data in compliance with the above principles and is responsible, and able to demonstrate, this compliance whenever and wherever necessary to remain in line with the GDPR. 


LinguaTute will implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to demonstrate that data is processed in line with the above principles set out in the GDPR.   

Records of activities relating to higher risk processing will be maintained, such as the processing of special categories data or that in relation to criminal convictions and offences. 

LinguaTute will provide comprehensive, clear and transparent privacy policies.  

LinguaTute will implement measures that meet the principles of data protection by design and data protection by default, such as: 

  • Data minimisation.
  • Pseudonymising.
  • Anonymising 
  • Transparency.
  • Allowing individuals to monitor processing.
  • Continuously creating and improving security features.

Data subject rights

The GDPR endows individuals with eight ‘data subject’ rights. LinguaTute is committed to ensuring that all of the rights outlined below are met at all times. 

The right to be informed – Organisations need to tell individuals what data is being collected, how it’s being used, how long it will be kept and whether it will be shared with any third parties. This information must be communicated concisely and in plain language.

The right of access – Individuals can submit subject access requests, which oblige organisations to provide a copy of any personal data they hold concerning the individual. Organisations have one month to produce this information, although there are exceptions for requests that are manifestly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.

The right to rectification – If an individual discovers that the information an organisation holds on them is inaccurate or incomplete, they can request that it be updated. As with the right of access, organisations have one month to do this, and the same exceptions apply.

The right to erasure – Individuals can request that organisations erase their data in certain circumstances – for example, when the data is no longer necessary, the data was unlawfully processed, or it no longer meets the lawful ground for which it was collected. This includes instances where the individual withdraws consent.

The right to restrict processing – Individuals can request that an organisation limits the way it uses personal data. It’s an alternative to requesting the erasure of data and might be used when an individual contests the accuracy of their personal data. An individual can also exercise this right when they no longer use the product or service for which it was originally collected, but the organisation needs it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.

The right to data portability – Individuals are permitted to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services. This right only applies to personal data that an individual has provided to data controllers by way of a contract or consent.

The right to object – Individuals can object to the processing of personal data that is collected on the grounds of legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the interest/exercise of official authority.Organisations must stop processing information unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that overrides the interests, rights and freedoms of the individual. They can also refuse this right if the processing is for the establishment or exercise of defence of legal claims.

Rights related to automated decision making, including profiling – The GDPR includes provisions for decisions made with no human involvement, such as profiling, which uses personal data to make calculated assumptions about individuals. There are strict rules about this kind of processing, and individuals are permitted to challenge and request a review of the processing if they believe the rules aren’t being followed.

Third-party compliance

All contractors, Data Processors, agents, consultants, partners, sub-contractors and other third parties acting on behalf of LinguaTute, including tutors, must:

  • Ensure that they and all employees who have access to personal data held or processed for or on behalf of LinguaTute, are aware of this policy and are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities under the GDPR
  • Any breach of any provision of GDPR will be deemed as being a breach of any contract between LinguaTute and that individual, company, partner, organisation or firm
  • Allow data protection audits by LinguaTute of personal data held on its behalf (if requested)
  • Indemnify LinguaTute against any prosecution, claims proceedings, actions or payments of compensation or damages, without limitation.
