Last Updated: November 28, 2023.
Welcome to the KickoffLabs LLC. (“KickoffLabs”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) Terms of Service (the “Terms”). We (the guys behind KickoffLabs) run this simple customer sign up service and would love for you to use it. We offer both free and paid plans that include features such as domain hosting and larger customer lists. Our service is designed to give you as much ownership over what goes on your site and your customer data. We encourage you to promote your business and build a customer list as freely as possible.
Please read these Terms carefully because they govern your use of our website www.kickofflabs.com (the “Site”) and the services and products available at or through the website. Please read the Terms carefully. If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, and Our products and services and are collectively called the “Services.”
We know you’re eager to start building and creating, so we’ll make this simple:
Agreement to Terms
By accessing, installing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, its simple: do not use the Services. If you find a KickoffLabs.com site that you believe violates our terms of service, please send a report to email@example.com.
Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify the Terms and our Services at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know by email. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because continuing to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site indicates to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then please discontinue use of the Services immediately. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice to you, at our sole discretion.
Creating an Account
In order to access and use the Services, you will need to create an account (your “Account”). By creating an Account, you become a “User” and represent that you are thirteen (13) years or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law. Certain Account types may allow you to create a number of sub-accounts (“Sub-Accounts”) for use in and by your business. If your Account allows for Sub-Accounts, you are solely responsible for compliance with these Terms by those parties to whom you give Sub-Account access (“Sub-Account Users”). If your Account allows for Sub-Accounts, the term “Account” shall include your Account and any and all Sub-Accounts affiliated with your Account.
Your Account should be yours – don’t use the Services under the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or use a username that is subject to rights of another person without appropriate authorization. You represent and warrant that the parties to whom you may provide Sub-Account access, We have a strict “No Robots” policy. You must be a human to use the Service and an automated account is not allowed. This policy also applies beyond Account creation to the general use of the Services. “Robot” (or automatic) activity is not allowed. Keep it real, people.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading or to reclaim any username that you create through the Services that violates Our Terms. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account, and agree to notify Us if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. You are responsible for activities that occur under your Account.
You can link your Account to various social networks and other online platforms with which the Services are integrated. You may only link your own Account(s) and by doing so, you expressly authorize Us to retain your Account information from those third party accounts, on your behalf and permit Us to store your Account information for the purpose of providing the Services.
Users with paid Accounts will be billed monthly starting on the day you sign up and then monthly every 30th day therefrom. If you upgrade from a free to a paid Account you will be billed immediately upon upgrading and then monthly every 30th day therefrom. Each bill paid ensures your access to portions of the Services that require payment for the next thirty (30) days. If you are not satisfied during your first thirty (30) days of using Our Services (ouch!), you may contact us to request a refund. Refunds may not be granted if you’ve collected over 500 leads.After your first thirty (30) days of using your paid Account, there are no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open paid Account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
If you upgrade your Account plan, your paid Account will be charged the prorated amount for the remainder of the billing period. Downgrading your paid Account may cause the loss of Content, customer lists, or features, available to your Account at your current plan. KickoffLabs is not, and will not be held to be, liable for such loss.
Customer plans accounts will be automatically upgraded to the plan that includes the number of leads or uniques you need based on the usage.
Enterprise, Annual, or semi-annual plans will be billed monthly for overage fees of $150 per 100,000 uniques or $8 per 1,000 leads if you are on lead based pricing. Contact us to lower that rate with a custom enterprise agreement.
Non custom Enterprise agreements are limited to 100 simultaneous contest signups or API calls per minute. Each paid plan defines its own rate. If your contest sees a higher level of signup requests over this limit may result in an error message. You can contact us to get on a custom plan an increase your rate limits for larger campaigns.
Running stress tests against our production database is not permitted, grounds for account closure and will be treated like a denial of service attack against the system.
We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services. You can submit feedback by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You grant to Us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit the feedback for any purpose.

"No Scrubs" User Behavior Policy
TLDR: Life is short. Be professional. Be kind. We reserve the right to refuse service to assholes and close accounts if you display abusive behavior towards our team members on support emails, calls, or chats.
You'll be warned because we know everyone has a bad day, but the next time we may just close the account and suggest you abuse a competitor instead. What sort of things could get you warned/banned? Here are some real life examples set to the tune of TLC's "No Scrubs"
A "scrub" is a guy who thinks he's fly,
But in our TOS, it’s a bit awry.
Screaming in caps, just losing his cool,
Thinks he’s the boss, but he’s just a fool.
A scrub is a user who gets no love from us,
Disrespectful tones, emailing or phones, making a fuss.
Harassing our team, with no end in sight,
Cross the line and we'll say goodnight.
Demanding custom work, like he owns the place,
Threatening to leave, a shameless case.
Doesn’t respect, the team’s hard work,
Thinks he’s a king, but he’s just a jerk.
Trying to bully, with a sexist stance,
Won’t talk to women, won’t give 'em a chance.
But in our world, that won’t fly,
We value respect, that’s our battle cry.
A scrub is a user who gets no love from us,
Typing in caps, causing a fuss.
Always demanding, a manager to see,
Sorry, but that’s not how it's gonna be.
So read our TOS, understand the score,
We’re all for help, but we won’t take more.
Respect is key, in this digital land,
Cross the line and we'll take a stand.
Public Campaign Hosting Policies
TLDR: We're not going to host illegal content, hate speech, or campaigns designed to harass and individual or group of people. Read on for more details.

Our product is designed to help organizations and businesses grow their audience. But we do not and will not support content and campaigns that promote or condone violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics.
We recognize that this is a balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack individuals or protected groups, the content and campaign crosses the line and will be removed.
We will not provide hatred with a voice. If you feel there is content that crosses these lines being hosted by our product please contact email@example.com.
Harassment, Bullying, and Threats Will Not be Tolerated

In emergency situations, we may escalate imminent threats of serious harm to law enforcement.
