The confidentiality and security of our customers' personal information is very important to us. Please read below for a full explanation of how we treat the personal information you submit to us.
The information we request from you is minimal and is gathered solely to register/maintain you as an Books Outside the Box customer and/or to register/maintain you as a subscriber to our mailing list. The standard information we request when you sign up to BOTB via our Website is as follows: e-mail address, full name of recipient, shipping address, phone number (optional) billing information (debit card number, billing post code, billing country, CVC) (“Personal Information”).
Books Outside the Box uses this information to process and ship your orders and to keep you up to date with your shipments and occasional Books Outside the Box promotions. We gather no information from you other than the information you voluntarily provide and will never sell, rent or disclose any of your Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes per the General Data Protection Regulation. Books Outside the Box uses industry standard encryption techniques and stores all personally identifying information in a secure manner.
What Do We Do With Your Information?
Books Outside the Box uses your Personal Information with a view to give you a high-quality customer experience. We will use your e-mail address as our primary source of communication with you and will send monthly notifications regarding the renewal of your subscription and the shipping and tracking of your monthly Books Outside the Box order. We will also use your e-mail to contact you personally if we find any errors with your account (e.g. invalid shipping address due to typo). If you are signed up to our mailing list, you will receive occasional promotional e-mails from us. If ever you wish to stop receiving these e-mails, there is an 'Unsubscribe' link at the bottom of each e-mail that you can click to remove your e-mail address from our list. If you leave an item in your shopping cart, but have entered your e-mail address at the start of Checkout, you may receive 1 to 3 e-mails encouraging you to return to the website and complete your sale. You can always unsubscribe from these e-mails by clicking the 'Unsubscribe' link at the bottom of the e-mail. Any concerns whatsoever in regard to this can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books Outside the Box will not knowingly collect Personal Information from visitors younger than thirteen (13) years of age. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose on websites. Parents are also advised to research and if necessary utilize Parental Control tools to prevent children from submitting information online without parental consent. If you are at all worried that your child has submitted Personal Information to us online, please reach out to us at and we will take immediate action to remove this information from our servers.
Changes In Company Structure
In the event of the sale, transfer or merging of certain company assets (i.e. the company itself or parts of the company), user information (including Personal Information) may constitute one of the transferred assets. If required by law, we will notify users of such transfer.
How Do We Keep Your Information Secure?
Books Outside the Box takes all commercially reasonable precautions to safeguard your Personal Information. We encrypt your debit card details. Your Personal Information is only used by those Books Outside the Box employees who need to use the information in order to perform those duties which will assist in our service to you.
Although the precautions above are implemented on our website, security during internet transmissions can never be fully assured. As such, Books Outside the Box cannot guarantee complete security of Personal Information, since this level of security cannot currently be achieved on the internet. Users must therefore accept all risks associated with data-transmission on the internet (and thus on thebooksoutisdethe.com), including the potential interception of their Personal Information while in transit.
