Privacy Policy | Good Books International


Privacy Policy: Good Books in Aotearoa NZ comply with New Zealand's privacy act and its 12 information privacy principles, which deal with the collection, holding, use and disclosure of personal information.

Good Books and Paperbackshop UK (PBS) do not monitor any individual traffic patterns, only aggregate visitor behaviour is collected and this information is not linked to personally identifiable information. Where personal information is provided to us, Good Books and PBS maintain and use that information in strict conformity with the Privacy Act. Under the Act you have the right to access information about yourself and to ask for it to be corrected, and to limit the purposes for which it can be used. Good Books and PBS will not release your personal data without your consent. Good Books and PBS will not share personally identifiable information with third parties unless we have your permission or we believe in good faith we are required to by law. You may request access to, and corrections to, any information we have on you by using our online contact form.

Cookies: A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user, and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the Good Books website features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

We use a cookie to enable us to greet you when you return to our site and to remember you and your language preference. If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still use our site anonymously until such time as you wish to buy a book. Cookies may also be used by partner sites associated with Good Books, or linked sites. Although Good Books encourage third parties to adhere to appropriate privacy standards and policies, we are not responsible for the actions or policies of such parties. Further information on cookies.

Correspondence: You will only receive email from us if you have expressly signed up for receipt of information, or in relation to your orders. If you have signed up for information from us all emails sent will contain a link to unsubscribe or to modify your profile. You may subscribe or unsubscribe to information from us at any time.

Online Transactions: Online transactions including credit card transactions are secured using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and encryption technology to ensure that any sensitive information passing over the internet during transactions is secure. This is a standard for online transactions on the Web that provides security using digital certificates issued by Certification Authorities (companies who verify the authority of organisations before issuing them with a digital certificate).

What security procedures are in place to protect my information? Internally, Good Books and PBS restrict access to any personally identifiable information. Only those who need access to the information in order to do their jobs have access. They are limited in number, and are committed to our privacy and security policies. Good Books and PBS will not share personally identifiable information with third parties unless we have your permission or we believe in good faith we are required to by law.
