Privacy Policy

SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you browse our SITE, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. We do not collect your personnel information as purchases for products are not made directly through booksandbards.com and are instead made directly through our vendors/affiliates websites.

 

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

How do you get my consent? When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it. We may also share your Personal Information with third parties for third party marketing purposes unless you elect for us not to do so by emailing us with your name and address at info@bookstonian.com. All emails and newsletters from our website will allow you to unsubscribe and opt out of future mailings.

How do I withdraw my consent? If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at info@booksandbards.com or mailing us at: Books and Bards, 1 Research Court, Suite 450, Rockville, MD, 20850, United States

 

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

 

SECTION 4 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

 

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

 

LINKS

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

 

SECTION 5 – SECURITY

The Bookstonian website is powered by Wix, which is certified Level 1 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) PCI DSS compliant. We do not operate a shopping cart on our website and all purchases are made directly through our vendors and affiliate sites. We encourage you to read their security statements.

COOKIES

A cookie is a small file that a site or service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser. It enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture certain information. A cookie itself does not contain personal identity information, but it does allow us to relate your use of the site for purposes of enhancing the user experience.

By continuing to use this website you agree that we can place cookies and other similar technology on your device, including mobile devices.

SECTION 6 – AGE OF CONSENT

By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

SECTION 7 – CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

If you are a California resident, the state may provide you with additional rights regarding use of your personnel information. California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services may be entitled to request and obtain information we collect or share. Note that booksandbards.com does not collect personal information via a shopping cart as all purchases are completed directly through our vendors/affiliates and not our website at bookandbards.com. Books & Bards DOES NOT share your personal information with third parties for direct marketing or advertising purposes. If you are a California resident, you may submit a request to us directly via email at info@booksandbards.com if you would like to identify any information we may collect.
