When we disclose your information
myBookCrate may share your personal information with certain third parties such as our agents, service providers and other representatives acting on our behalf for limited purposes. For example, we may share personal information with third parties to perform services on our behalf such as:
- Validating user information

From time to time, we may be required to share personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may share certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves. We may also transfer personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event.
Information you share on myBookCrate’s website
Your first name, last initial and school affiliation are displayed throughout our website (and so available to myBookCrate's members) and are connected to all of your myBookCrate activity. If you access our website from a shared computer, certain information about you, such as your first name, last initial, school affiliation, activity or reminders from myBookCrate, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer after you.
How we protect your personal information
myBookCrate takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
myBookCrate cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us by e-mail, and you do so at your own risk. You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser.
Integrity of your personal information
myBookCrate has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided.
Invitations to non-Users
All invitations that you initiate through myBookCrate to non-Users will include your first and last name on the subject line and within the body of the invitation to ensure that your friends know you are the one who extended the invitation.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 for marketing purposes. If a child under 18 submits personal information to myBookCrate and we learn that that personal information is the information of a child under 18, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.
