Aim of FindTutors
FindTutors is an online mediation technology platform (the "Platform") accessible through the website "findtutors.co.uk" (the "Website"), which allows, on the one hand, internship or language exchange providers (the "Teachers") and training centers, understood as such: academies, schools, educational centers, associations, training or consulting companies, professionals with an establishment that serves the public, groups of teachers or professors who use a brand/commercial name and not their name (the “Educational Centers”) to upload advertisements offering training in various areas and, on the other hand, recipients of internships or language exchanges (the “Students”) to request training in the areas offered . Teachers, Educational Centers and Students will be collectively referred to as users (the “Users”). FindTutors never provides any type of training service, either directly or indirectly, to its Users.
These General Conditions regulate the use of the Platform between Students and Tus Media, and apply to all natural or legal persons registered as Students on the Platform.

In case Tus Media becomes aware of the existence of illegal content, we will proceed to analyze the request and, where appropriate, proceed to its immediate withdrawal.
If the Student detects any kind of illicit or inappropriate content on this Website or on the Platform, we would appreciate it if you notify us, without undue delay, through the following link: https://www.findtutors.co.uk/help/ . We will analyse the information or communication made as soon as possible and, where appropriate, we will proceed to withdraw it promptly. In the event that it is necessary, either because of the information provided, there are indications or there is knowledge of the commission of any criminal offenses or of another type, we will inform the competent authorities.

Development of student activity
These General Conditions of Use define the conditions under which Tus Media makes the Platform available to the Student. Students may use the Platform to contact Teachers and/or Educational Centers by sending messages or in some cases telephone calls (after requesting to view the telephone number of the Teacher and/or Educational Center). In both scenarios, Tus Media will provide the necessary data so that the Teacher and/or Educational Center can respond or contact the interested Student.
Tus Media is not aware of and is not responsible for the economic, employment and/or any other type of relationship established between the Users of FindTutors. Tus Media only offers Users a Website where they can establish contact, without being responsible for the content of said contact. Tus Media does not access the content of the emails between the Students and the Teachers and/or the Educational Centers. Any activity that derives from said contact is under the exclusive responsibility of the Teachers and/or Educational Centers and the Students.
Tus Media does not guarantee that the contacts between the Users of FindTutors, whether by telephone or via e-mail, will be answered. Teachers and/or Educational Centers are solely responsible for opening and responding to queries they receive from Students.

Tus Media does not know nor is it responsible for the place where the activity takes place or for compliance with the schedules agreed by the Users or for development of exchanges, practices and/or private classes.
Tus Media does not know or guarantee the technical capabilities of the Teachers and/or Educational Centers, nor does it have any way of controlling that they are professional teachers, or that they comply with the legal and fiscal regulations related to their activity.
Responsibility of Tutors and/or Educational Centers
The Teachers and/or Educational Centers are the only ones responsible for being correctly registered in the corresponding professional activity for the services provided to the Students, therefore Tus Media is not responsible and is completely exempt from obtaining the authorisations that the Teachers and/or the Educational Centers need.
The contractual relationship regarding the services offered by the Teachers and/or Educational Centers is established directly between the Teacher and/or Educational Center and the Student, without Tus Media being part of this relationship, nor intervening directly or indirectly, in the provision of the services of the Teacher and/or Educational Center, therefore, the regulation of the contractual relationship between the Users is not, nor will it be in any case, the object of these General Conditions of Use.
Students may assess the services provided by Teachers and/or Educational Centers through FindTutors free of charge, without these assessments implying any responsibility for Tus Media, for which the Student undertakes to hold Tus Media harmless for any claim that it may receive from the Teachers, Educational Centers and/or any third party derived from such events.
