PRIVACY

The Literacy Coalition of Central Texas is committed to respecting the privacy of its clients, donors, employees, volunteers and affiliated agencies and organizations.

Personal Information

The Literacy Coalition routinely records personal information about clients and donors such as name, address, telephone numbers, email addresses, credit card information, gender and occupation. We maintain a record of payments and contributions. Any information we retain is for our own internal records or fundraising purposes only. No donor information is given to, sold to or shared with any other third party for any reason except where legally required.

Whether or not to provide contact or other personal information about yourself on this website is completely your own choice. In general, we ask you to provide information only for the purposes of 1) Accepting donations through our online donation form or 2) in response to your request to join our newsletter email distribution list. Some of the information requested through our donation form is collected so that we can address any issues that may arise with your contribution. We may not be able to process your contribution or inquires without the information we request.
