Students may use the Platform to contact Teachers and/or Educational Centers by sending messages or in some cases by making phone 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.

Any activity that derives from said contact is under the exclusive responsibility of the Teachers and/or Educational Centers and the Students.

The activation of any subscription service through the use of balance (be it featured ads or Verified Teacher, a TusMedia premium service available on the platform), implies the acceptance of being regularly charged for this service through the Teacher and/or Educational Center's balance, as long as the account has enough balance, and if not, through the use of the card linked to the balance top-up.
The rest of the conditions are the same that apply to any other payment method.
Featured Ad Service
When you subscribe to FindTutors to receive classified services, your classification will be calculated based on the date of your registration on the platform. That is, the most recent record will receive the highest ranking and the oldest record will receive the lowest. Notwithstanding the above, it will be possible to increase the time and frequency of appearance in the search engine by purchasing a premium product. The purchase of a premium product allows the configuration of the frequency, duration and term of said appearance in the search results. Once again, the registration date will define the order of the search results. However, when purchasing products you will receive a new date stamp, which will ensure higher visibility in search results.
The duration of the service is 30 calendar days. During the aforementioned period, the ad will appear highlighted in yellow in the FindTutors search engine, and it will automatically move up the rankings every 4 days. However, in providing these services, TusMedia cannot guarantee or promise a specific success rate. The impact of the advertisements displayed will depend on both the region in which they are displayed and the area in which the tutorials or other services are provided. For example, the demand for English classes tends to be on average higher than the demand for religion classes. As a consequence, this may directly impact the results generated by the use of TusMedia services.
The subscription will be automatically renewed each month and the amount will be charged to the card of the Teacher and/or Educational Center. In the event that the Teacher and/or Educational Center has a sufficient balance, the balance will be used to avoid making a charge on the card.
The Teacher and/or Educational Center may cancel the renewal of the service at any time from the Configuration area of their personal area. If the Teacher cancels the subscription up to 3 days before the next renewal date, the service will not be renewed. In case of cancellations during during the last 3 days of the service, Tus Media will renew the subscription for one more month and the service will be canceled the following month.
Redsys Processing Services. SL., will store and process said data autonomously to make purchases in FindTutors.
Tus Media reserves the right to suspend or terminate the use of the service if the Teacher and/or Educational Center does not comply with these Conditions, or if the use of the service causes legal responsibilities.
