Reading Partners does not sell, distribute or transfer personally identifiable information obtained through our website from you (our “Visitor”) to a third-party organization. The only exception to this is when it is necessary to share certain information for processing online donations.

The choice to opt-out or opt-in

When a Visitor contacts Reading Partners through our Contact page, the Visitor may request that his/her email address is not added to our mailing list to ensure that the Visitor does not receive periodic electronic mail from Reading Partners.

Only Visitors who sign up to volunteer, who request information from us, or who donate to Reading Partners through our website will receive periodic programmatic or promotional email communications from us. To request that Reading Partners no longer send email communications, Visitors can unsubscribe from emails or email us at to be removed from the list. We will not share, sell, or distribute your confidential information with third party organizations without your consent.

The security of your personal information is important to Reading Partners. In several areas of the Reading Partners website, Visitors have the option to sign up or register to volunteer.

At anytime, Visitors can choose to sign up via phone or email rather than through completing the online form. Contact or (510) 444-9800 for assistance.

Confidentiality and security of Personally Identifiable Information

We consider the confidentiality and security of your information to be of the utmost importance. In order to access certain features and benefits on our Website, you may need to submit Personally Identifiable Information (i.e., information that can be traced back to you). Some examples of Personally Identifiable Information include your name, email, and telephone number. We will keep your Personally Identifiable Information private and will not share it with third parties unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, or unless we have a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others. Reading Partners takes reasonable measures to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from disclosure to or access by third parties. Please note that we do not guarantee the security of Personally Identifiable Information, and there is some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to circumvent our security systems or intercept transmissions of your information over the internet. If at any time we believe that your personally identifiable information has been compromised, Reading Partners will take immediate steps to attempt to notify you.
