This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and stored when you visit our website.

When you submit a form on our website, we may retain any information that you include on that form, eg. your name, email, address, telephone number etc. We use this information only to assist you with your enquiry, eg. fulfilling your book order or responding to your research needs.

Your personal information is never shared with any other party, and is only retained by us so that we can assist with your enquiry, and identify you in future in case of further enquiries or orders.

If you are not a member, you will not be added to any mailing list unless you specifically request this. If you are a member, we may contact you by email from time to time to keep you informed of upcoming events, newsletters, etc. If you would prefer not to be contacted in this way, you can opt out by contacting us at any time. 

If you pre-order a product or service via our website, we do not collect any financial information from you as your order is not processed until you deposit your payment into our bank account via EFT, or pay via cash or cheque.

If you purchase a product or service directly via our website using your credit/debit card, we partner with Stripe who provides the invoicing and payment processing. Stripe collects your payment details and we do not have access to that information, other than the last four digits of your credit/debit card.

No other personally identifying information is collected about you apart from that specified above.

The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Like the majority of websites, our website uses cookies, which are small data files that are placed on your device or computer and which often include an anonymous unique identifier. You can instruct your browser to refuse cookies if you prefer, and this will not interfere with your use of our website.

Cookies help us to utilise services such as Google Analytics to gauge the performance of our website. The information collected may include the referring page (if you clicked on a link to get to our website), what search term referred you to the site, the country of your IP address, how long you spend on the website, what type of web browser you use, etc.
