The Homeschool Buyers Co-op (the "Co-op") will not sell, rent, or otherwise make your personal information available to other people or organizations without your permission, except as may be required by law, and except in conjunction with the sale or transfer of the Co-op and its assets to another business. In the event that the Co-op or substantially all of its assets are acquired, member information will be transferred.

What Information Is Collected?
The term "personally identifiable information" means any information that may be used to identify you, including, but not limited to, your name, address, email address, Internet Protocol address, phone number, billing information, or other contact information. We collect information from you when you join and if you participate in a group purchase that is managed by the Co-op. Below are the specific details on what, where, when, and why this information is collected and how it is used.

You provide your name and email address when you join the Co-op. We do not share this information with any third parties.

Order Information
If you complete an order form on the Co-op website for products offered by the Co-op or its supplier partners, the Co-op will maintain that order information on secure servers on your behalf in order to fulfill the orders, provide customer service, and maintain a history of your transactions viewable, by you, under the "My Orders" tab in your "My Profile."
