5. THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

Scholar Snapp connects you with third-party organizations in a few ways:

  • With your permission, Scholar Snapp will share your Profile data with scholarship providers or other entities that host college scholarship applications.
  • From time to time, Scholar Snapp provides services from other partners. For example, Scholar Snapp may display information about scholarship opportunities provided by third parties.

It’s important that you understand and agree to the terms under which a third party operates.  We will provide you with information (such as links to the privacy policies of third parties) so that you can decide for yourself, before you consent, if you want us to send your information to those third parties.  Once you consent to a service, feature, or functionality provided by a third party, that third party’s policies will govern that third party’s relationship with you.

We make every effort to partner with trustworthy organizations, but we are not responsible or liable for any actions or omissions of any third parties, and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims relating to acts or omissions of third parties.

6. LIMITATIONS ON USE

We make every reasonable effort to keep Scholar Snapp online and available. However, planned maintenance or technical difficulties may result in temporary interruption to service. In addition, we take the security of your information seriously, and so we may interrupt service while responding to a real or suspected security incident.

7. MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE

We may add or remove features and functionality, and we may suspend or stop our Service altogether. We may take these actions at any time any may not provide you with any notice beforehand.

Even if the Services are modified or terminated, any Service-related activities you engaged in will be bound by the Terms that were in place at the time of your activity.
