California Privacy Notice

Summary

  • We care about your privacy and have a dedicated data privacy program.
  • This California Privacy Notice only applies to individual residents of the State of California and only where we act as ‘business’ (e.g., for our websites and marketing). Where we provide our products and services to consumers on behalf of an institution, we process that personal information as a service provided in accordance with our contractual agreements. In that case, the institution's privacy notice governs the use of personal information.
  • We collect personal information from and about you for a variety of purposes and may disclose it to our service providers, business partners and other third parties as described below and in our Privacy Policy.
  • We do not sell your personal information for profit.
  • As a California resident, you have rights in relation to your personal information. To that end we will honor requests from families to remove data they have previously chosen to upload to our system.
  • For any other questions, you can contact us at sales@read-a-thon.com.

Our Commitment to Privacy

We care about privacy. We believe that privacy is a fundamental right for all individuals. Our clients entrust us with the personal information of their employees and their users, who are often students. We take the obligations that are attached to this information very seriously. We therefore have a dedicated data privacy program with privacy by design at heart.

Scope of Notice

This California Privacy Notice (the “Notice”) supplements the information in our Privacy Statement and applies only to individual residents of the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).

This CA Notice describes how we (as a ‘business’) collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information of individual residents of the State of California, either online or offline, within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA).

Where we provide our products and services to consumers on behalf of our clients, we are considered a ‘service provider’ under CCPA. In this case, the client’s privacy notice governs the use of personal information.

For the purposes of this Notice, personal information does not include:

  • Publicly available information from government records.
  • Deidentified, aggregated or anonymized information that is maintained in a form that is not capable of being associated with or linked to you.
  • Information relating to our employees, contractors and other personnel (which is governed by a separate privacy notice).

When we use terms that are defined in the CCPA, they have the same meaning as in the CCPA.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

We collect personal information from and about you for a variety of purposes. For example, we use personal information:

  • To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information. For example, if you share your name and contact information to ask a question about our products or services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry.
  • To communicate with you, including via email, text message, push notification and/or telephone calls.
  • To operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of our website.
  • To personalize your experience on our websites.
  • To recognize you and remember your information when you return to our websites.
  • To help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our websites.
  • For testing, research, analysis, and product development, including to develop and improve our services.
  • To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations.

We do not sell your personal information for profit.

The Right to Know

You have the right to request any or all of the following information relating to your personal information we have collected and disclosed in the last 12 months:

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of sources of the personal information;
  • The categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for a business purpose, and the categories of recipients to whom this information was disclosed;

The Right to Request Deletion

You have the right to request the deletion or erasure of personal information we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.

The Right to Non-Discrimination

However, please note that if exercising these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our services or engage with you in the same manner.

To Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Deletion

To exercise your Right to Know and/or your Right to Deletion, please submit a request by:

  • Emailing sales@read-a-thon.com with the subject line “California Rights Request,”
  • Calling 866-888-5155 (Please note, response times may be faster if you submit your request via email)

We will need to verify your identity before processing most requests, which may require us to obtain additional personal information from you or require you to log into your account, if you have one. We will only use such personal information to review and comply with your request.

In certain circumstances, we may decline or limit your request, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate information in our systems, or as permitted by law.

In certain circumstances, we may decline or limit your request, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate information in our systems, or as permitted by law.

Shine the Light Law. California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section §1798.83) permits California residents that have an established business relationship with us to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year. To opt out please email sales@read-a-thon.com.

Updates to this Notice. We will update this Notice from time to time. When we make changes to this Notice, we will change the "Last Updated" date at the beginning of this
