Privacy Policy

Updated February 15, 2021

Your privacy is important to us at College Kickstart LLC (“College Kickstart”).  This Privacy Policy explains how the information we collect about you or the students you serve (“Personal Information”) is used, shared, and stored when using our website (“Website”) and services (“Services”) and how you can control its collection, correction and/or deletion.

Please review this Privacy Policy in conjunction with our Terms of Service (“Terms”) as they govern your use of our Website and Services.  Capitalized terms, if not defined in this Privacy Policy, are defined in the Terms.


When you use our Services, you authorize us to use the Personal Information you provide us about yourself or the students you serve, such as name, email address, test scores, GPA, class rank and college list.

We do not sell or share and have no rights to Personal Information except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services you requested.  This includes running analyses on your behalf, tracking your or your students’ progress, generating reports, tracking aggregate statistics and providing technical support. 

When you visit our Website, we also collect information such as date and time, browser type and IP address. This information is gathered to help us evaluate the functionality and performance of our Services. We use Google Analytics to measure how users interact with content on our website.  Google Analytics uses HTTP Cookies to "remember" what a user has done on previous pages/interactions with the website.  Please see the following for more information on cookie usage and privacy controls.


We share Personal Information with third parties as follows:

  • To support our Services, such as processing your payments and offering customer service.  These third parties are authorized to use Personal Information solely to provide these services to us and are obligated to keep your information confidential.
  • As required by law, such as to comply with reporting requirements, a subpoena or similar legal process.
  • In connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other unlawful activity or as we believe reasonably necessary to protect or enforce our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others.
  • With any other third party with whom you authorize us to share Personal Information.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets or bankruptcy, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding Personal Information.


We take appropriate precautions to protect Personal Information.  This includes the use of Secure Sockets Layer ( SSL) encryption technology to protect Personal Information such as user’s email or password during transmission over the Internet to secured servers operated by our hosting providers.  All credit card transactions are processed by authorized third party service providers and credit card numbers are never stored in our database or servers.  While we follow generally accepted standards and recommended practices to protect Personal Information, we cannot warrant absolute security.

We will retain Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. We will also retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Ultimately, protecting Personal Information is a shared responsibility. You are responsible for safeguarding your password and other authentication information you use to access the Services. You should immediately notify College Kickstart of any unauthorized use of your password or other authentication information. College Kickstart cannot secure personal information that you release on your own or that you request us to release.

We will promptly notify you should Personal Information be compromised. Notwithstanding, College Kickstart: (a) is not responsible or liable for any consequences that may result because you have released or shared Personal Information with a third party; or (b) that was the result of another party’s negligence, reckless or intentional actions. 


The English version of this Privacy Policy governs. All disputes, claims and causes of action (and related proceedings) will be communicated in English.


You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California (where we have our headquarters); and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over College Kickstart, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Privacy Policy is governed by the laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and College Kickstart that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Alameda County, California. The Service is controlled and operated from our facilities in the United States. College Kickstart makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with local law, including but not limited to export and import regulations. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the U.S.


We comply with the requirements of FERPA and the regulations and guidelines applicable and adopted in accordance therewith. Personally identifiable information received by us will be used solely for legitimate educational interests.

Pursuant to FERPA, we receive personally identifiable student information from our high school subscribers in the capacity of a school official under FERPA Regulation Section 99.31 and are subject to the direct control of the school subscriber with respect to the use and maintenance of education records, and we shall only use such information as necessary to perform the services as set forth in the Terms.

In compliance with federal guidelines, Personal Information acquired by us will not be used to engage in targeted advertising on any site, service, or application.
