We may change this policy from time to time. If we do, we will provide notice to users on our Website or via email notifying them of the change and obtaining their consent to the change.
We collect information in several ways. Some of the information we collect is personal to you or your government or business organization, school, school district or other educational organization. Other information is anonymous. We collect information in contact-us forms, bill payment information, website activity information, data transferred from your Google Workspace service, 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. We also collect information through our interface with your Google Workspace service.
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.
If you are a student of a school that uses the Website, we collect your information through your school and its Google Workspace platform.
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 Website, prevent fraud, track website navigation in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We also use server logs to track activity for KIT Central and our API.
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 products for your school, school district or other educational organization or we can provide you with an easy to use and readily available access to your Google Workspace platform in a manner that can appropriately limit access to features and information based on user profiles within your government or business organization, 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.
We disclose information to Google and your user base through the applications and extensions on our Website, our API and your Google Workspace platform.
Users within your school or organization will have access to information within the applications and extensions on our Website based on the user permissions your school, school district or other organization sets within the Website and the access rights granted by such government or business organization, school, school district or other organization.
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 and app 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. We expect all of our third party service providers to have privacy principles consistent with ours.
Data in the Aggregate/Google
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.
To make a request to view, edit or delete your personal information, contact us at email@example.com. You may also disable some collection through your browser settings or Google’s opt-out tool. If you are a student, make your request through your school or school district.
We offer our customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
If you are a student, teacher or other employee of a government or business organization, school, school district, or other educational organization using the Website, your information is collected through the Website and the Google Workspace platform. KIT is acting as a service provider to your government or business organization, school, school district or other educational organization. Make any request relating to your information through your school or organization. KIT complies with requests from students through government or business organizations, schools and other educational organizations who use the Website and have agreements with KIT requiring them and us to protect student information.
If you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or provided to others through your use of this website, you should contact us at email@example.com.
You may disable browser cookies in your browser or set your browser to warn you when a cookie is being sent. You may lose some features or functionality when you disable cookies. Remember, also, that disabling cookies is browser specific. If you log on using Google Chrome, you must also disable cookies in Safari if you use that browser at a different time.

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 account information about any individual user.
We use encryption in designated areas of our Website. We use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information when it is in our system.
Your KIT Central accounts are password-protected as administered by your government or business organization, school, school district or other organization. Remember to sign out of your KIT account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account by using your computer when you are away from it.
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 Website 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 account 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.
When you or we end your customer relationship with us, we will treat the information we have about you as if you were still our customer.
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.

KIT does not sell your personal information.
Nevada law (SB 220), permits customers in Nevada to opt-out of the sale of certain kinds of personal information. A sale under Nevada law is the transfer of this personal information to third parties for monetary consideration so these third parties can then resell or license the sold information. We do not sell your personal information to third parties as defined in Nevada law
Special Privacy Provisions for Children Under 13
We do not directly collect information from children under the age of 13.
Schools, school districts and other organizations that use our Website may collect information from children under the age of 13 and store it on our Website. We require organizations we work with to represent that they have appropriate authorization to upload student information into the Website which includes any applicable parental consents required under COPPA. To exercise any rights under the COPPA, please contact your applicable school or district. If we collect information from children under 13 for our own commercial purposes, as opposed to collecting it on behalf of the school, we will obtain verifiable parental consent.
When a school, school district or other educational organization instructs us to collect personal information from children under the age of 13, such as by uploading it to the Website through such organization’s Google Workspace, we collect, use, process and retain such information solely to provide the KIT services on behalf of such organization. We provide those services solely for the benefit of the organization and solely as provided in our agreement with the organization. Our agreements with schools, school districts and other organizations require them to consent to our collection and use of student personal information through the Website.
We collect only as much information as is necessary to provide the service and the client may access, delete or withdraw consent for continued processing of the child’s information at any time. If you have any questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting personal information of a child under the age of 13, please contact your school, school district or other educational organization directly.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under 13 without proper consent. We will then delete this information as soon as possible.
Behaviorally Targeted Ads
KIT does not engage in behavioral targeting of advertisements to students.
KIT complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) when it processes student information. For more information about FERPA, please see the U.S. Department of Education page on Protecting Student Privacy at https://studentprivacy.ed.gov/.
