Bookshare® is a nonprofit online library dedicated to providing accessible books and other materials (“Content”) to people with print disabilities.
Bookshare partners with the U.S. Department of Education to provide free access to students in the United States. Bookshare also partners with other nonprofit and for-profit organizations to provide greater access to children with qualifying print-related disabilities. To further this goal, Bookshare collects information on members’ education, including, but not limited to, a member’s grade, birth date, school name, school address, school district, and whether the member is enrolled in a qualifying Individualized Education Plan (“IEP”) or a 504 Plan.
Bookshare also collects information on whether or not a member is a minor. For each member with an Individual Membership who is a minor, Bookshare may collect the contact information of the member’s guardian, such as the guardian’s name, e-mail address, postal address, zip code, and telephone number.
