1.1 Data You Provide to Us
Flalingo may collect different data from or about you depending on how you use the Services.
When you create an account and use the Services, including through a third-party platform, we collect any data you provide directly, including:
Account Data: In order to use certain features (like enrolling in a course), you need to create a user account. When you create or update your account, we collect and store the data you provide, like your email address, password, gender, and date of birth, and assign you a unique identifying account (“Account Data”).
Profile Data: You can also choose to provide profile information like English language level, interests, lesson preferences or other data. Your Profile Data will be publicly viewable by others.
Shared Content: Parts of the Services let you interact with other users or share content publicly, including by posting reviews on a course page, asking or answering questions, sending messages to tutors. Such shared content may be publicly viewable by others depending on where it is posted.
Course Data: When you enroll in and take courses, we collect certain data including which courses you’ve started and completed; your exchanges with tutors, teaching assistants, and other students; and answers to questions, and other items submitted to satisfy course requirements.
Student Payment Data: If you make purchases, we collect certain data about your purchase (such as your name and zip code) as necessary to process your order. You must provide certain payment and billing data directly to our payment processing partners, including your name, credit card information, billing address, and zip code. For security, Flalingo does not collect or store sensitive cardholder data, such as full credit card numbers or card authentication data.
Data About Your Accounts on Other Services: We may obtain certain information through your social media or other online accounts if they are connected to your Flalingo account. If you login to Flalingo via Facebook or another third-party platform or services, we ask for your permission to access certain information about that other account. For example, depending on the platform or service we may collect your name, profile picture, account ID number, login email address, location, physical location of your access devices, gender, birthday, and list of friends or contacts.
Those platforms and services make information available to us through their APIs. The information we receive depends on what information you (via your privacy settings) or the platform or service decide to give us.
If you access or use our Services through a third-party platform or service, or click on any third-party links, the collection, use, and sharing of your data will also be subject to the privacy policies and other agreements of that third party.
The data listed above is stored by us and associated with your account.
