Information Collected From You

The Books Are Fun Book Blast system used by The School/Organization asks you to register by entering your first name, last name and email address. This information is used to create your account, so you can sign in, add your students and family and friends, and monitor your donation progress.  It is also used to email you notifications about donations your family and friends make. The website uses “cookies” only to maintain session state, not to track you. You may optionally upload a photo of your students to personalize the donation request and thank you letters that get sent to your family and friends.


The system also asks you to enter your student's first name, last name, teacher and gender. The names get used when emailing and/or texting donation requests and thank you notes to family and friends. The information also appears on reports used by the School/Organization to award fundraising prizes.


The system asks you to enter the first name, last name, alias (Grandma & Grandpa, for example), email address and/or mobile phone number of your family and friends from whom you’d like to solicit donations. It uses this information to email and/or text donation requests and thank you notes. Your family and friends’ email addresses and/or mobile phone numbers are not shared with anyone (not even the School/Organization). The donation request emails and/or texts link your family and friends to your family fundraising page. It can only be seen by people you invite.


Who Has Access To This Information?

Books Are Fun customer service representatives and developers have access to the information you enter, as it is necessary to perform their duties. The School/Organization has access to the information you enter for yourself and your students, but not your family and friends. The information you enter is never shared with anyone else, except when required by law. Your family fundraising page can only be seen by people you invite.
