Discovering Friends to Form Groups
We make it easier for you to discover students who you can form groups with.
When you are logged in up user on Zevopals, you will have access to viewing “Friends”.
Friends are shown in 4 categories
- ‘My Friends’ – These are the students you have taken lessons with in the past.
- ‘Friends of Friends’ – These are students your friends (from #1) have taken lessons with.
- ‘Neighborhood friends’ – These are all the verified zevopals users in your neighborhood.
- ‘Invited friends’ – These are the emails of friends who you have invited before.
**We only show names of verified Zevopals users in your neighborhood. At no point will we be disclosing courses you have taken or your personal information (like email, address, student age, student name etc). The sole purpose of this feature is to be able to form neighborhood groups easily.
For any reason, If you wish NOT to use this feature, you can change the setting on ‘My Accounts’ page. On un-checking this box, you will not see ‘friends of friends (FOF)’ and ‘neighborhood friends’ and your name will not show up in their ‘FOF’ and ‘neighborhood friends’ list..

We may gather non-PII when you use the Site. Such data is compiled in aggregate and includes things like the referring URL and the type of browser you may be using to access the Site. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the Site. ZevoKids may publish these statistics or share them with third parties without including PII.

Data transmission and storage
ZevoKids uses SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the Site and the ZevoKids network (collectively, the “System.”) Once information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security. ZevoKids also uses firewalls and hardware monitoring across our System to protect against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, even with these measures, ZevoKids cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Site, you acknowledge and agree that ZevoKids makes no such guarantee, and that you use the Site at your own risk.
If you elect to pay for tutoring lessons with a credit card, we will collect your name, credit card number, expiration date, and address information associated with the account. All financial information is collected and encrypted in our System in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
If you are a tutor and elect to pay for a background check, we will collect credit card information to order a background check on your behalf. Payment information entered into our System solely to procure a background check will not be stored on our servers.
