Privacy Policy

At JewishBooksOnline we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a more personalised shopping experience. Please read on for more details about our privacy policy.


What information do we collect? How do we use it?

When you place an order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, delivery address, credit or debit card number together with the card's expiry date. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of your order status.

We also ask for your telephone number. This will enable us to contact you urgently should a problem arise with your order. For some international deliveries this number may need to be given to our carriers. When you enter a competition, quiz or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address in order that we can administer the contest and notify the winners.

You can choose for us to notify you about important changes to the functionality of the Web site, new Jewishbooks services and other special offers that we think you'll find valuable. If at any time you change your mind and decide that you would rather not receive this information however, you may opt out by visiting the Your Account pages. Make sure you change your preferences for each account you hold or e-mail address that you have given to us.

How does JewishBooksOnline protect customer information?

When you place orders using credit cards, we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.

What about "cookies"?

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to provide features such as to store items in your Shopping Basket between visits. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features in our store, but you won't be able to place items in your Shopping Basket and purchase them.

Will JewishBooksOnline disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

Jewishbooks Ltd. will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer services. Such companies and individuals will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK's Data Protection legislation.

In summary

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect on the site to make shopping at Jewishbooks possible and to enhance your overall shopping experience. We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. We may choose to do so in the future with trustworthy third parties, but you can tell us not to by sending a blank e-mail message to never@Jewishbooks.

If you never want to receive any announcements or special offers from us, you may opt out by visiting the Your Account Page. Remember to change your preferences for each of the e-mail accounts you have given us.
