This allows you to indicate where you want to follow and / or give lessons.

Tutoring subject and associated price

With this a match can be made and you as a student know what the hourly rate of the tutor is for that specific course.

For what purposes is your personal data processed?

TyTa processes your personal data for the following purposes:

TyTa also processes personal data if we are legally obliged to do so, such as data that we need for our tax return.

Legal bases

TyTa relies on two legal bases that allows us to process your personal data.

Basis: Execution of the agreement

The processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of our services - in other words, to execute the agreement that we have with you. The number of personal data that we request from you when entering into the agreement is set up to a minimum such that the TyTa mobile application can still function properly with the obtained personal data. In this way we have no more information in our database than we need. This way your privacy will be guaranteed as much as possible.

Basis: legitimate interest

The processing of your personal data is also necessary for the protection of the legitimate interest of the processor and possible third party needed to process your request.

How do we obtain your personal data?

TyTa has information about you because you have provided us with this information.

What are your rights?

Under the European General Data Protection Regulation you have a number of rights with regard to your data and the processing thereof:


You can always view your own personal data. If you want to see the personal data that has been recorded about you at TyTa, you can request a review.


If you want to change your personal data in response to a request for access and you cannot change it yourself in your account, you can make a request to do so at TyTa. You can request that TyTa change, correct, add, delete or protect your data.

Restrict the processing:

You also have the right, under certain conditions, to request TyTa to limit the processing of your personal data.

Right to object:

If a certain processing takes place on the basis of the "legitimate interest" of TyTa or a third party, you have the right to object to that processing.

Data portability:

You have the right to obtain your personal data from TyTa. This means that you can submit a request to us to send the personal data that we hold about you in a computer file to you or if you prefer to another company.

Revoke permission:

In all cases where the basis for a certain data processing is “your permission”, you have the right to withdraw that permission. This has no consequences for the personal data that has already been processed, but it does mean that we may no longer process that data. As a result, TyTa may no longer be able to provide you the offered services.

You can send a request for access, rectification, removal, restriction, data transfer of your personal data and/or request for withdrawal of your consent or objection to the processing of your personal data to info@tyta.nl. We will respond to your request as soon as possible, but within four weeks. TyTa would also like to point out that you have the option to file a complaint with the national data protection authority called Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens.

Special and/or sensitive personal data that we process.

Our website and / or service does not intend to collect data about users under the age of 16. Before the TyTa mobile application can be used, you are therefore asked to enter your date of birth so that it can be determined whether the user is at least 16 years old and allowed to use the TyTa mobile application. However, we cannot 100% check whether a visitor is older than 16. We therefore advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, to prevent data about children being collected without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data about the user under the age of 16 without that permission, please contact us via info@tyta.nl and we will remove this information.

How long do we keep your personal data?

Personal data is linked to your account and is therefore stored for as long as the account exists. In addition, you can unsubscribe from our mailings at any time, then that data will be deleted immediately.

Sharing of personal data with third parties

TyTa shares your personal data with various third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement and to comply with any legal obligation, such as data that we need for our tax return. For management, maintenance and development of the website and the mobile application, TyTa uses the services of other service providers that act as processors. TyTa concludes a processing agreement with these service providers, so that they process the personal data exclusively on behalf of TyTa for the purposes for which the data were obtained.

The personal data can be shared with:

• Processors (within TyTa)

• Parties (outside TyTa) involved in the implementation or performance of an agreement between you and TyTa.

We would like to specifically point out that for the payment of the session to TyTa (done by the student), the IBAN account number (iDEAL) and / or credit card number you have entered is fully processed by the payment platform Stripe in a secure environment. TyTa itself does not store this data and has no insight whatsoever into the IBAN account number (iDEAL) and / or credit card number you entered as a student.
