Since all financial and login information is transacted over a secure connection (TLS) and cookies do not contain financial nor login information, the cookies we store do not comprise a significant security risk.
Strand Book Store Inc., (collectively, “Strand Book Store,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), is committed to protecting the privacy and information of all individuals who visit and use our website. We collect information about you through our website in order to manage your shopping experience with us and to communicate with you about our products, services, contests and promotions. This policy explains what personal information we collect about you and why; how we will use, share, and protect this information once it is collected; and the choices you can make about our collection and use of your personal information. We encourage you to review this policy to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide to us online will be treated.
We may change this policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed policy on this page. In some cases, for example, if we make any significant changes, we may contact you directly about changes to this policy, such as by sending you an e-mail.
What Information Does Strand Book Store Collect?
We collect two general types of information from Web site users: (1) non-personal information concerning the use of our Web site and (2) personal information that identifies or can be used to identify or contact an individual. Sometimes, we may link Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, in which case it becomes Personal Information.
Non-Personal Information: As is the case with many Web sites, our servers automatically collect your browser type and IP address when you visit our Web site. We may also capture certain clickstream data, which includes, for example, the referring page that linked you to the Strand Book Store Web site, the pages you visit on our Web site, and any search terms you have entered on our Web site or a referral site.
Any or all of the above-described activities with respect to Non-Personal Information may be performed on our behalf by our service providers.
Personal Information: Most of the Personal Information that we collect from you on our Web site is what you provide to us. For example, we may collect Personal Information from you, such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, credit card number, gender, birthday, etc., when you place an order online, save your information with us online, sign up for our newsletters, contact us with a question or concern, or participate in a contest, or promotion.
How Does Strand Book Store Use My Information?
We and our trusted partners acting on our behalf may use the information (including Personal and Non-Personal Information) we collect from and about you to:
· process and fulfill your orders, including sending you confirmation and shipment status emails using the email address you provide when placing your order

You have the right to tell us not to send certain communications to you. For example, you may tell us not to send you our promotional emails by clicking on the appropriate link included with any such email you receive from us or by contacting our customer service representatives or web marketing team using the information provided in the Contact Us section. Please note, however, that it may take 2-5 business days to process your email request, during which period you may continue to receive promotional communications from Strand Book Store. Moreover, even if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your online orders, in-store transactions, and/or to follow up prior communication with us.

Sharing With Third Parties
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website and conducting our business, including sending communication to our customers, and processing credit card transactions. These companies are authorized to use your information only as necessary to provide these services. In addition, we may share your information:
· as required by law and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or those of third parties, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or comply with a court order or other legal process
· in connection with co-branded or co-sponsored products, services, contests, or promotions when we team up with others to offer or provide these things to our customers
In addition, we may share aggregate Web site usage information that does not identify individual users with third parties for any reason, including, for example, marketing or analytical purposes such as Google Analytics.
All security on our Website is treated seriously. We constantly review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service and security to our customers. Where applicable, we undertake security steps, including use of SSL technology, on our back-end systems that store customer account information and to protect data transmissions. However, this is not a guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, altered or deleted due to firewall or other security software failures.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your email address, we may notify you by email. Unless you provide us with another method to notify you in this situation, you consent to our use of email as a means of such notification.
Third-Party "Linked-To" Web Sites
Our Web site may contain links, banners, widgets or advertisements that lead to other Web sites. We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their posted privacy policies will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of the Web sites you visit after leaving the Strand Book Store Web site to learn about how your information is treated.
