1. The Fair Information Practice Principles

KickUp complies with the Fair Information Practice Principles (the “Principles”) as developed over the years and implemented around the world.  The Principles consist of the following elements:

  • Notice: We notify you of our practices in writing.
  • Choice: You have the choice to provide or not provide your personally-identifiable information (“Personal Information”).
  • Accountability for Onward Transfer: We explain whom we share your Personal Information with and are responsible for any use of your Personal Information by those who receive your Personal Information from us.
  • Security: We explain how we keep your Personal Information secure.
  • Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation: We agree to keep your data intact and limit our processing of it.
  • Access: You have access to your Personal Information that we have, including to review and correct it.
  • Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability: You have the right to complain and to enforce your rights in your Personal Data.

The Principles have been implemented in different ways, in different laws and regulations, including the EU-US Privacy Shield at https://www.privacyshield.gov (“Privacy Shield”). For clarity, KickUp is not a member of the Privacy Shield, and KickUp has no plans to certify with the Privacy Shield, but KickUp complies with the Principles as implemented in the Privacy Shield.

2. The Information KickUp Collects:

User-provided Information: You may provide to KickUp what is generally called ‘personally identifiable’ information (such as your name, email address, postal mailing address, home/mobile telephone number, demographic information) if you log in to the KickUp Platform, or otherwise use the features and functionality of the KickUp Platform, including transmitting teaching materials and communicating with other participants.

’Cookies’ Information: When you access the KickUp Platform, we may send one or more cookies & small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters to your computer. KickUp may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the KickUp Platform. We may use cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts for administrative, analytical, tracking, and demographic gathering.

’Automatically Collected’ Information: When you access the KickUp Platform, we may elect to automatically record certain information. This ‘automatically collected’ information may include Internet Protocol address (‘IP Address’), browser type, a unique device or user ID, internet service provider (ISP), operating system, the content and pages that you access on the KickUp Platform, and the dates and times that you visit the KickUp Platform. We may combine this information with other information we collect about you to improve KickUp services.

3. The Way KickUp Uses Information:

KickUp uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, create and provide all of the features and services found on the KickUp Platform as well as to track user-generated content and usage trends.

We may use your email address for administrative communications such as notifying you of major KickUp Platform updates, for customer service purposes, to address copyright infringement or defamation issues, or to contact you regarding any content that you have used within the KickUp Platform.

KickUp may use ‘Automatically Collected’ information and ‘Cookies’ information to: (a) automatically update the KickUp application on your system; (b) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the KickUp Platform; (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; (d) provide such metrics to Users as they pertain to such Users’ uploaded content; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.

4. KickUp Information Disclosure:

KickUp does not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior express consent, provided however that, KickUp may share your personally identifiable information with (i) third party entities or organizations for data analysis and KickUp may share, or authorize such third party entities or organizations to share the results of such analysis with valued partners under obligations of confidentiality, and (ii) a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of KickUp’s  assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by KickUp about our Users is among the assets transferred. Please be aware, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on the KickUp Platform such as when you publish attribution credits for documents or profile information becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction.

We may disclose User information to affiliated companies or other businesses or persons to: provide web site hosting, maintenance, and security services; fulfill orders; conduct data analysis and create reports; offer certain functionality; and assist KickUp in improving the KickUp Platform and creating new services features. We require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Notice, we authorize only a limited use of such information, and we require these parties to use reasonable confidentiality measures.

  • KickUp may disclose User information if required to do so by law or when such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.

KickUp also reserves the right to disclose User information that we believe is appropriate or necessary: to take precautions against liability; to protect KickUp from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the KickUp Platform; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of KickUp, our Users, or others.

5. Our Commitment to Data Security:

KickUp uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to KickUp, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, KickUp makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If KickUp learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. KickUp may post a notice on the KickUp Platform if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.

6. Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy:

If you are under 13 years of age, then do not use or access the KickUp Platform at any time or in any manner.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, KickUp does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If KickUp learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the KickUp Platform, then KickUp will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a KickUp Platform member, then please contact KickUp at info@kickup.co to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.

7. In the Event of Merger or Sale:

In the event that all or a portion of KickUp is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personally identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

8. Changes and Updates to this Privacy Notice:

Please revisit this page periodically to stay aware of any changes to this Privacy Policy, which may be revised periodically at our sole discretion, as provided in the KickUp Terms of Use. This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically. If we modify the Privacy Policy, we will notify each current user by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in the user’s account), and by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. Your continued use of the KickUp Platform constitutes your consent to any modifications to this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to any modifications to this Privacy Policy, then you may terminate your account, and you will be subject to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use most recently in effect prior to termination of your account.

9. Your Choices
