We will use this information to assess your application, to contact you about your candidacy, and/or for any subsequent work that you may do with us.
If you choose to donate to NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) or are an educator who registers for an educator-specific account, we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways and as otherwise described under "How we share and disclose your information" below.
We collect the following information when you sign up for a voter/backer account on our Sites, donate to a pitch, donate directly to NextPitch, or purchase or redeem a NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) gift card:
First name, last name, email address, and cell phone number: When you donate, we will create an internal account profile with your name and email address so that we attribute current and future contributions properly to you. We use this information to correspond with you regarding transactional activity, which may include confirmation emails, receipts, and updates on pitches you have funded. We will also send you recommendations for pitches to support according to your indicated interests, from which you can unsubscribe through your account. If you have opted in to receive text messages from our team, you may also receive the above information by SMS (see full SMS terms for details).
Gift codes and Giving pages: When you donate using a NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) gift code, or in support of a Giving Page, we may share your full name with the entity or individual that funded the gift code, or who administers the Giving Page, respectively.
Promo codes: When you donate using a promo code provided by one of our partners, we may share your full name with the partner who funded the promo code. We will also share your email address if needed to verify your eligibility for a promo code.
If you use PayPal, Amazon, Apple Pay, or a similar service, you will be subject to their terms of service and privacy policies, so we encourage you to review those policies carefully.
If you choose to donate through a Giving Page, the contribution amount will be shared with the Giving Page administrator.
The amount of your contribution will be shared with the educator(s) whose pitch(es) you give to and any funding partners that match your contribution. We share voter/backer and contribution information with funding partners who commit to matching employee out-of-pocket contributions when associated with an employer gift card.
Display name, location, and comments: When you make a contribution, you will have the option to choose a name to be displayed next to your contribution (unless you choose to make your contribution anonymous). Your display name, location, and any comments you include shall be deemed to be public information, which means it is non-confidential and NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to it. This information will be publicly posted on the pitch page you have given to.
We collect the following information when you sign up for an educator account on our Sites and start a pitch. Educators who make contributions will also be required to share the information listed under the “Backers” section above.
First name, last name, and school/community program information: Publicly, we’ll use the display name you choose to share (for example, “Ms. B”) along with your school/community program name and location. This publicly displayed name will be treated as non-confidential, and be used to identify your pitches on NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) and through any of our social media sharing tools.
We’ll use your full name to deliver resources to your attention when a pitch receives funding, and may share your full name with your school/community program administrators and district/program officers to confirm that you are eligible to use NextPitch. If you indicate that you are a part of any professional affiliations (for example, Teach for America or NEA) or receive funding through a partner company’s match offer, we may share your full name with the professional organization in order to verify your affiliation or with the funding partner to ensure the proper use of their contribution, respectively. These partners are only authorized to use this information for the purpose of verification.
Email address: We use your email address to set up your account, through which you can access educator-specific services such as submitting a pitch and completing a thank-you package. We also use it to correspond with you regarding your pitch(es) and use of our Sites, deliver a monthly educator newsletter, and contact you about special opportunities.
Cell phone number: When we’re not able to reach you by email, we will use your cell phone number to contact you about actions required for your pitch or opportunities in your area. (We may use pre-recorded messages and autodialed calls and/or texts to reach you. If you've opted in to receive text messages from our team, you may also receive information about opportunities in your area, actions for your pitch, and other promotional messages.
Optional Information for Backers & Educators
We may also collect the following information from you should you choose to share it with us.
Classroom and profile photos/video: Everyone has the option to submit a profile photo. Educators can also choose to submit a photo to represent their classrooms. These photos/videos are displayed to all visitors to our Sites, and classroom photos/videos will appear beside the pitch when the pitch is shared using social media sharing tools. We require that you obtain prior, written permission from the parent or legal guardian of each student for any photos/video that include images of students, and present those permission slips to NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) upon request at any time.
Password: You can always log into your account through a link emailed to the email address we have on file, but you may also opt to set up a password for your account. We will never share your password, and you agree to not share it, too.
School/community program email address (Educators only): You may be asked to share your school/community program email address when creating or receiving pitches sent to a non-school/community program address or for certain supports or other reasons, in order to verify that you are a current school/community program educator. You must only submit your own school/community program email address, as we may use this email address to confirm personal account details. Your school/community program email address will not be used for marketing purposes.
Imported Contacts: If you choose to connect to Gmail, Yahoo, or other email services to share a pitch and authorize your contacts to be shared with us, we will use CloudSponge (https://www.cloudsponge.com), a third-party address book processing service, to collect the email addresses and names of the contacts you’d like to import. We only use this information to email your contacts a pre-populated message about the pitch you’re sharing. We'll remove these contacts within 24 hours of a successful email send.
Demographic, educational, and career information (Educators only): We may use information such as your race, gender, the year you began teaching and where you went to college to opt you into specific opportunities. While this demographic information won’t be publicly listed on your account or pitches, people may be able to infer it from the opportunities your pitches qualify for. We may use this information to generate contributions to pitches on NextPitch, or to invite educators to participate in particular events. In addition, we may use this information in aggregate for our own research purposes.

Information That We Automatically Collect During Your Visit
When you visit our Sites, our web server automatically recognizes and collects your domain name and IP address. This allows us to deliver pitches specific to your location, to remember your preferences, or to pre-populate your information during checkout. We also keep track of how users arrive at our Sites (e.g., via a search engine) and the path of users through our Sites. We also collect aggregate information about how our Sites are used, derived mainly from tallying page views throughout our Sites. This information helps us prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, and gauge how users respond to new features.
Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.
Third-Party Website Tracking
How We Share and Disclose Your Information
We do not sell or rent your information. We may use and disclose your personal information and public information available on our site as described above and as follows:
To operate our Sites and provide our services to you or to fulfill any other purposes for which you provide the information;
To respond to your requests or questions or notify you about changes to the Sites;
To allow our third parties to provide Site features and to perform services on our behalf, for example, payment processors, and site analytics tools such as Google Analytics and Heap;
As we believe may be required by law or by a court order;
With any successor to all or part of our business or as part of a transaction in the event of a merger, acquisition, divestiture, change of control, or liquidation of NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) or part of its business (or in anticipation of such an event);

How We Protect Your Information
Your privacy is important to us, and we use physical, technical, and administrative safeguards designed to preserve the security of your personal information and protect it from unauthorized use or disclosure. When you make a contribution on our Sites, information about your contribution is transmitted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and payment information is tokenized so that it’s never stored on our servers. We store data in cloud-based environments that use firewalls and other industry-standard protections in an effort to prevent access from outside intruders. Access to data is limited to those individuals who need it in order to perform their business function and protected wherever possible by two-factor authentication. Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of data over the internet (including by email) is never completely secure.
How We Protect Children’s Privacy
NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) was founded by a public school teacher and engages teachers across the United States and Internationally in our planning. Children’s safety and privacy are our top priority. Our Sites are not intended for children under 18 without the consent of a parent or guardian. In the event that we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 18 without parent or guardian consent, we will delete that information as soon as practicable from our server. If you believe that we may have any information collected from a child without the consent of a parent or guardian, please contact us at service@MOXIEsolutions.dev.
Here are the ways in which we work with educators in an effort to ensure the privacy of student information:
We comply and support school district system compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). If there are ways NextPitch (MOXIE Solutions Development) can adjust our practices to increase safety for children, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also contact us if there are any privacy or safety concerns that will prohibit your school or district from participating. We are eager to adjust to ensure NextPitch is accessible to all young people.
When educators submit a pitch to us, they may choose to include photos/video of students in their classrooms. Educators must obtain the prior written consent of the parent or legal guardian for each child who appears in a photo before it is submitted to us, and we provide educators with a consent form to use for this purpose. We also review pitch postings for personal student information.
We do not post photos/videos that contain student names or other identifying information.
We will retain user account information for as long as needed to provide our services, comply with our contractual or legal obligations, audit requirements, resolve disputes, and prevent abuse. We also retain deidentified, aggregate information about activity related to pitches submitted and funded on our Sites, to understand and gain insights into how school/community programs/community programs are being supported through our Sites. We publish this information in reports available at www.MOXIEnp.com.
