Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • Change/correct any data we have about you.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Literacy council Gulf Coast uses cookies to help the Literacy Council Gulf Coast identify and track visitors, their usage of the Literacy Council Gulf Coast website, and provide a more interesting experience (cookies are used to show the website in multiple colors). The Literacy Council Gulf Coast visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Literacy Council Gulf Coast’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of the Literacy Council Gulf Coast’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


The Literacy Council Gulf Coast recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy and safety of children. To provide the services we offer, we may need to collect Personal Information about children under the age of 13 in both online and offline contexts. However, we do not knowingly collect information about children under the age of 13 or minors otherwise defined in local law or regulation without verifiable parental consent. The Literacy Council Gulf Coast may collect Personal Information about a child under the age of 13 if the child’s parent or legal guardian registers their child for a Literacy Council Gulf Coast class, event or activity. If we learn that someone under 13 has provided Personal Information through one of our websites, we will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from our databases. If you are a parent and have questions regarding the Literacy Council Gulf Coast data collection practices, please visit our website at https://literacygulfcoast.org/contact/ to contact us.

The Literacy Council Gulf Coast encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
