2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND OBJECTIVES

Mentorly is an online mentorship platform. In order to operate the Service and provide you with our services, we require you to provide us, directly or indirectly, with personal information in conjunction with your account, your profile, your financial and calendar information.

Personal information collected includes but is not limited to, your name, personal email address, age, city that you reside in and other information which helps us provide you with the best service. Personal information may also include information collected through third party services such as your social media accounts. Such information will be used for customer account administration, customer relationship management and will comply at all times with regulatory requirements.

You also allow Mentorly to use your personal information in order to send you newsletters, promotions or any other relevant information related to our business.

However, just like most service providers, Mentorly works with third parties who administer important functions that allow us to offer and enhance our services. For example, we provide a payment gateway via Stripe to process customer sales transactions and deliver transaction services.

When you provide your personal financial information, you agree to the terms of Stripe, our third party provider. We strongly suggest that you review Stripe Privacy Policy by clicking here. Please note that we do not have access to any personal financial information, outside of the fact that transactions are occurring on the Mentorly platform. All of your banking information and identity verification (i.e. SIN) are stored on Stripe separately from Mentorly.

In addition to the information you provide knowingly, Mentorly may also collect information such as IP addresses and domain names from visitors to its platform in order to track usage statistics (i.e. Web browsers and operating systems used) and maintain a browsing history. Mentorly uses Google Analytics to view key metrics such as how many visitors view the website, peak hours of traffic, and response to specific marketing campaigns or press. To opt out of Google Analytics tracking your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser by clicking here.

Mentorly also uses Intercom to provide a live chat and customer service. Intercom is able to identify which city you are accessing the website from, which we use to better serve you. Mentorly uses this data to operate, promote its services and administer its website more effectively.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose of providing you with the service you have requested from us or to meet specific anti-fraud and legal requirements. If you prefer that your data not be collected by Mentorly, contact info@mentorly.co. Please note that this will not allow you to use Mentorly to the full extent that we offer services. The provision of the information detailed in this Policy is a requirement necessary to provide the service. By providing your information and signing up to our service you are entering a contract for the term of the service. If you object or are not willing to provide this information, please do not register or use any of our services.

3. HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

Mentorly collects your personal information with your consent and in accordance with legal requirements. Wherever possible and appropriate, we collect your personal information directly from you or from people you have chosen to provide your personal information, such as social log in.

When you sign up to any of our services, we ask for your consent to send you direct marketing communication over a variety of channels. We will honor your right to withdraw your consent at any time.

When you inquire about or request a service from us, we may rely on our legitimate business interests to send you marketing communications (via post, email or telephone). These communications will always be related to our services and we believe will be of interest to you. We will always provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of this when you provide your information to us.

5. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Mentorly may disclose information that can identify you to third parties for purposes related to our service or if the law requires or permits it.
