Cool School Prime complies with all regulations and processes set forth by our participating distributors. Each distributor has their own set of requirements for the protection of your data. At a minimum, Cool School Prime is required to provide distributors with your Letter of Participation (LOP), Letter of Termination (LOT) for any current rebate processor (if needed) and your customer account numbers. This allows the distributor to add your customer account to our program reporting (Powered by Buyers Edge Platform). For most distributors, that is all that is required for notification. Occasionally, there are additional steps that need to take place during the enrollment process, such as proof that any previous processors were notified of termination by districts, etc. Should your distributor need this additional proof, rest assured we will work with you to complete the necessary steps to ensure proper handling of your membership. There are no extra steps that a district will need to complete with the previous processor.
We work with over 1,200 distributors throughout the country for reporting data; each has their own set of requirements for the protection of your data.
We are required to provide each distributor with your Letter of Participation (LOP), Letter of Termination (LOT) (if needed) and your customer account numbers.

For most distributors, that is all that is required for notification. For others, there are additional steps that need to take place during the enrollment process. Some distributors require the previous processors to be notified by districts, some require a 3-way NDA and others a copy of an email.
