This is a document in “legalese”. That means that it is written in the language of lawyers.
The main idea is this: Laura’s English Class does keep some of the data you provide, such as your name, email address, cell phone number and transaction details. The purpose of this is to keep in touch with you and offer you English learning information, materials, services and offers.
Laura’s English Class does NOT keep your payment information (this is kept by a third-party: Paypal or Acuity Scheduler). Also, this site will make every reasonable effort to keep your information secure and will not share or sell it.
Note that this is an American site that must follow US law in regards to data protection.
If you want more details, feel free to read below! If you have questions, you can contact me as well.
