Privacy Statement of Oxford Specialist Tutors LLC. Update September 22, 2021.
We take privacy seriously. We follow the strictest privacy laws in the world and are GDPR-compliant.
Oxford Specialist Tutors LLC (“Oxford Specialist Tutors”) provides tutoring and developmental support services for neurodiverse children and adults (“Services”).
When working with adults, we typically have one Client – the adult we are working with. When working with children, we typically interact with the child directly, their parents/guardians, caregivers and sometimes other family members. In that case, this group of people is collectively referred to as “Client” in this document.
This means Oxford Specialist Tutors processes Client’s personal data in order to provide our Services. We operate under the requirements of applicable data protection legislation. This means we:
- Clearly specify our purposes before we process personal data, by using this privacy statement;
- Limit our collection of personal data to only the personal data needed for legitimate purposes;
- First ask for explicit permission to process your personal data in cases where your permission is required;
- Take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data and we demand the same from parties who process personal data on our behalf;
- Respect your right to access, correct or delete your personal data held by us.
Oxford Specialist Tutors is the party responsible for all data processing.
In this privacy statement, we will explain what kind of personal data we collect and for which purposes within our website and when providing our Services. We recommend that you read it carefully.
If you have any questions regarding the processing of personal data, you can find the contact details of Oxford Specialist Tutors at the end of this privacy statement.
Operation of our website
On our public website, oxfordspecialisttutors.com, you can access general information about our company and services. Here, we make use of general analytics tools (see below).
Our services are provided by highly-trained and carefully-vetted specialists (“Specialists”). After consulting with you as a new client, we will recommend the best Specialist(s) on our team to support Client.
In the course of providing our Services, our Specialists will gain access to personal information about Client.
- When you schedule a Free Consultation, we will be provided with your name and email address and optionally phone numbers and information about what you would like to discuss with us.
- During your Free Consultation, it is likely that you will share private and personal information about Client.

Provision of Services
Your Specialist(s) will keep notes on Client’s sessions. We may also ask you to share videos of Client and fill out forms answering questions about Client.
We store the information you share with us securely. We use Google Drive for this purpose.
Google Drive provides world-class data protection. For our Specialists’ access to Google Drive, we use unique, strong, secure passwords. It is your responsibility to ensure that your own passwords that provide access to information shared in Google Drive are strong and secure.
Some of our Services require Client to sign additional data sharing consent forms due to the requirements of Specialist’s professional affiliations for specific Services. We will provide these additional consent forms to Client as needed.
For ongoing training and development of our team of specialists, your Specialist(s) may share their notes about your sessions with other members of our Specialists team. All of our Specialists have signed strict policies to maintain your private information and will never share it with people outside of our Specialists team. If you ever decide that you would like your Specialist to permanently delete any notes they have made regarding Client, you may send them an email to make that request. They will delete all notes within a reasonable time of receiving the request.
Any non-special categories of personal data processed for our Services are processed so we are able to offer our services to you (“necessary for performance of the contract”).
