We collect information in several ways. Some of the information we collect is personal to you or your school, school district or other educational organization. Other information is anonymous. We collect information in contact-us forms and information concerning your website activity.
We collect information directly from you when you provide it to us through our website. We collect information indirectly through cookies and other tracking tools.
Direct Collection: This includes information such as registration information, contact information, and user submissions. If you do not want to share your information, you can choose not to participate in a particular service or activity. We collect much of the information listed above directly from you when you submit it on our website.
Log Files. Like most standard website servers, we use log files. Log files track Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We utilize this information to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track website navigation in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Our main goal in collecting information is to improve the website and provide you with the best possible experience on the website.
For example, by using the information we collect, we can get back to you with information on our KIT Central products for your school, school district or other educational organization.
We will also use your personal information to:
We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission, when required by law, for security and compliance, to service providers working on our behalf, or if or if we sell our company or assets. We may also disclose information to third party partners in blinded or aggregated form that does not identify individuals.
These are some of the ways that your information may be disclosed:
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including mailing, website development and operation, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail or email, analyzing website use, processing payments, providing investor information and processing data. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other reason.
Data in the Aggregate
We may disclose “blinded” aggregated data and user statistics and blinded and aggregated versions of the Client Data to prospective partners and other third parties. Blinded data is data that does not identify an individual person.

We offer our customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may contact us at email@example.com. if you wish to view, edit, or delete your personal information from our database, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.

To ensure that you will not receive recurring marketing or other information from us unless you choose to, we will provide you with simple instructions on each marketing email from KIT for you to let us know that you have chosen to stop receiving such emails from us.
As a matter of policy and long-time business practice, we do not sell information provided by our users. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective partners regarding financial matters are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user. We will transfer your credit card number, bank account number or other personal information to the appropriate credit card company or bank in order to process any online payments if we add that feature.
We use encryption in designated areas of our website. We use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information when it is in our system.
Because information sent through the Internet travels from computer to computer throughout the world, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as specifically stated, this site does not use security encryption measures. We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption to secure certain areas of our website, such as the Contact Us page. You will know that a webpage uses TLS security when you see “https” or the padlock symbol in your browser URL. Information that you disclose by use of our website (as with any website that is non-secure), by posting a message or using e-mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, that information may be accessible to other customers and users. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
California residents are entitled to additional protections under California Law including the right to request information about third parties to whom we disclose information for marketing purposes.
California Shine the Light Law
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

KIT does not sell your personal information.

We do not sell your personal information to third parties as defined in Nevada law.
