Partners in Education is not responsible for data wiping, data retention or preservation of any data remaining on or in the electronic device or liable for the data or personal information left on any device. 

When it’s time to donate, don’t forget to electronically ‘wipe’ those devices to remove your data. Please also consider dusting your gadget and sanitizing it before donating, with some isopropyl alcohol or sanitizing wipes. If your device is particularly dirty or grimy, you might want to go after it with a toothbrush (making sure to avoid getting water in any vulnerable ports, of course).
