ClassWish-Books (“CWB”) takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.


What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how CWB treats personal information that CWB collects and receives, including information related to your past use of CWB products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies or organizations that CWB does not own or control or to people that CWB does not employ or manage.  

In addition, should you consent to release your personal information to any third party, including the schools and classrooms to which you make donations, the privacy policy of CWB will not apply; such third parties have their own privacy policies.

CWB does not currently participate in the Safe Harbor program developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Union, but CWB may participate in such program in the future.


Information Collection and Use

CWB may collect personal information when you register with CWB, when you make a donation, or when you visit Website pages or the pages of certain CWB partners or affiliates. CWB may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from other nonprofit organizations, or from ClassWish Inc.

When you register with CWB we ask for certain personal information about you. Accordingly, once you register with CWB and log in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.

CWB may collect information about your purchases, favored schools or classrooms and favored resource categories. This list of personal information that may be collected about you on the Website is by no means exhaustive.

CWB uses any collected personal information for the following general purposes: to help customize content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, or conduct research. CWB may also use this information, on an aggregated and anonymous reporting basis, for the benefit of other charitable organizations or governmental agencies, or our vendors.

Upon request, CWB will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update or correct personal information previously submitted to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, CWB will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information being retained by CWB because of the nature in which backups of data are maintained.

A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies store information about your use of a particular web site or service and are typically used to make services more convenient and personalized. Most cookies are "session cookies," which are automatically deleted whenever you leave a web site, although some cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. As is standard practice on many websites, our Website may use cookies and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our Website are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We may also use cookies to see to what extent our visitors are choosing to consider the purchase of products and services of our partners. We may also use cookies to study traffic patterns on our Website and to personalize information and services that we provide to you on our Website.


Do You Share Information with Third Parties?

Except as set forth in this privacy policy, CWB does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people, companies or other nonprofit organizations, unless you specifically provide your permission to CWB. In the event you consent to provide your personal information to third parties in connection with a donation, such as teachers, schools and classrooms, such information shall be shared with such parties.

CWB does share information about you with ClassWish Inc.

CWB may disclose personal information about individual users to third parties who provide services to CWB and who agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information in accordance with this privacy policy. These third parties may provide a variety of services to CWB, including, without limitation, helping us process information and credit card payments, fulfilling any orders placed on the Website, hosting our Website, helping create new promotions for CWB, and sending or coordinating the sending of communications to users. In situations where a user has supplied his or her information in connection with a question or request for information about a product or service offered by one of our partners, we may also send the information he or she has supplied to the partner that offers such products or services.

Our Website contains links to third party sites other than our own. Those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as CWB. Such links may be to advertisers, content providers, vendors or partners. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect information and use it in a way inconsistent with CWB's privacy policy. CWB does not control the content that appears on these third party sites. Such sites may contain information that content providers independent of CWB have created, maintained, published, posted or otherwise made available. The use of any information or materials that you may access at these third party sites is purely voluntary. You should not rely on their contents without independent and thorough review of the accuracy, completeness, effectiveness, timeliness and correct sequencing. When you click via a link to such third party sites you should read the applicable privacy policy to determine how they will use any information they collect from you. These third party sites may also refer to specific commercial products, processes, or services by trade name, trademark, service mark, manufacturer or otherwise. Unless CWB has provided explicit authority, such references in no way indicate our endorsement, recommendation or preference.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, CWB will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We also believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of CWB's User Agreement, or as otherwise required by law.

We may also transfer information about you if CWB is merged with, acquired by, under the fiscal sponsorship of or otherwise becomes a part of another organization.


What Security Precautions are Taken to Protect Personal Information?

This Website incorporates appropriate safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy and privacy of the personal information we have collected, and we have put in place reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse and alteration. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as required and only authorized individuals have access to the information you provide us. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy policy. CWB uses a 128-bit security certificate for all credit card payments and will not store credit card numbers.

You hereby acknowledge that CWB is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.


Changes to this Privacy Policy

By using the Website, you signify your agreement to the terms of this privacy policy. If you do not agree with these terms, you should not use this Website. CWB may modify this privacy policy at any time. If a material change is made to this privacy policy and/or the way we use our users' personally identifiable information, then we will post prominent notice of the nature of such change on the first page of the User Agreement or this privacy policy and also on our home page. You are responsible for reviewing this privacy policy periodically to ensure that you are aware of any changes to it. Your continued use of the site indicates your assent to any changes to this privacy policy.



This website is not directed to children and CWB does not knowingly solicit information from any child under the age of 13. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 years of age send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or a parent or guardian) to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.
