The recordings may only be viewed by You, the Student User or parent thereof, and You, the Teacher Member, as the service provider. Recordings are not to be made public without the express written permission of You, the parent, except for the purpose of dispute resolution. In cases of dispute resolution, these recordings may be viewed by Us, or an appropriate governing body, such as the Australian Tutoring Association.
