  • How We Share This Information

    Information Shared on the Services Generally

    Our services are social and community focused, which means some of your activities on the Services will be visible to other Users, as well as more broadly on the internet.

    The extent to which your information is shared depends on whether you are the Organizer of or the Attendee to a public or private Page. In general, expect anyone to be able to see you started or contributed to a public Page. Private Pages are generally not available to the public at large, though it is important to understand that a private Page may be available to others whom you do not expect.

    Information Shared with Page Organizers

    If you contribute to a Page, we may share certain personal information about you with the Organizer, including your name, email address, mailing address, the amount of your contribution, and order specifications. We share partial payment information with KickParty Organizers, including the last four digits of your payment card number, so that they can do things like fulfill your order, process refunds, and dispute chargebacks.

    Information Shared with Third Parties

    We may share your personal information and financial information with:

    • Payment processors or banking partners in order to facilitate your financial transactions or as required by credit card association rules.
    • Credit bureaus and collection agencies to report account information, as permitted by law.
    • Verified nonprofit organizations so that they can send you a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution.
    • Affiliates or other trusted third parties that process personal information for us or help with our business operations, such as marketing, fraud prevention, compliance, and technology services.
    • Other third parties when we believe it is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of KickParty or our users; or (d) protect KickParty's property rights. If we’re going to release your information in response to legal process, our policy is to provide reasonable advance notice, along with a copy of the request, unless prohibited from doing so by law or court order. Where prior notice is prohibited, our intent is to notify affected users after the non-disclosure period has lapsed. We may disclose information without prior notice if we believe it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defenses our users may have to efforts by third parties to compel disclosure of information, including legal orders from the government.
    • Companies we plan to merge with or to be acquired by. Should such an event occur, the new entity will step into our shoes for purposes of this Privacy Policy.
    • Other third parties with your consent.

    As noted above, KickParty shares information with Page Organizers. Otherwise, KickParty will not provide any of your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes except with your prior consent. For example, we may from time to time offer co-branded experiences with other companies on the Services, and if we obtain your consent to provide your information to those companies for the identified uses in the consent, then we may share your information with them to be used according to the consents.

    We reserve the right to anonymize your personal data and may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners, including publishers, advertisers, or affiliated sites. For example, we may share information with others to show trends about the general use of the Services.

    Promotional Uses

    We may publically feature your Page if it is public (but not if it’s private) and contributions to that Page on an examples Page on the Services. For KickParty Organizers, we may publically feature your Page or you as a user on educational and client list pages and in marketing and promotional materials, including the trademarks you use on our Services.

    Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don’t want your internet browsing activity to be tracked.

  • How We Protect Your Information

    To the extent we transmit and store your cardholder data, we do so under the most stringent credit card security standard: PCI Compliance Level 1. A PCI-certified auditor verified and awarded us this level of security and compliance.

    We work hard to secure your data, but nobody is perfect. If you discover a vulnerability in our Services, we would be grateful for your report and encourage you to let us know immediately. To report a bug, please email [email protected].
