Children’s Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 5, 2023

Kaleidoscope Group, PBC (“Kaleidoscope,” “we,” or “us”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting personal information. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this policy, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information.

This Children’s Privacy Policy (“policy”) only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements our general Privacy Policy. Terms that are defined in the general Privacy Policy have the same meanings as used in this Children’s Privacy Policy.

For the purposes of this policy, “Services” means our end-to-end scholarship and grant management software connecting sponsors with applicants, as well as our website (the information and materials made available via our website) located at

Information We Collect

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to use the Services or participate in an activity, and we do not condition the child’s participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.

A.      Information Collected Directly

We enable users to apply for awards (e.g., scholarships, grants, internships, and other opportunities) that are offered by our clients who are sponsors. In interacting with the Services or applying for an award, we may collect the following types of personal information about children under 13:

B.    Automatically Collected Usage and Device Information

Like most websites or mobile applications, our Services use various technologies to automatically collect information about visitors, including children, when they access and navigate through the Services.  Those technologies include:   

The information collected through these technologies may be combined with personal information or aggregated with other information collected from or about your child via our Services.  Please review the “Your Choices About Personal Information” section in our general Privacy Policy in order to learn more about how you can opt out of certain information collection.

C.      Information from Other Sources

We may obtain both personal and non-personal information about a child from their references, educators, or academic professionals. These are individuals that the child designates as a “contributor” to provide information about the child in connection with their award application. Please contact the appropriate contributor to learn more about their information collection, use, and disclosure practices and your rights with respect to such information.  

How We Use Personal Information

We (or service providers acting on our behalf) may use the personal information identified above collected from or about your child to make the Services available to the child, allow the child to submit an application via the Services for an award, and to allow the child to import or export content to or from the Services.

We use the information we collect automatically through technology tools to analyze our Services usage and patterns, prevent or detect potential fraud or security incidents, to remediate or respond to security incidents, and to improve our Services and deliver a more personalized experience.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We may disclose aggregated information about many of our users and information that does not identify any individual in order to administer our business and improve our Services.

We do not disclose, sell, rent, or transfer children’s personal information other than as described in this section. We may disclose children’s personal information:

In addition, Kaleidoscope may disclose children’s personal information to buyers or other successors prior to or in the event of a merger, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as a part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, where the information is among the assets being transferred.

Accessing and Correcting Your Child’s Personal Information

At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information. You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by sending us an email at To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections.
