Privacy Policy

Educational Publishers LLP ("EP") is committed to protecting your privacy.
EP collects personal information from you in various ways, including by subscription details, through feedback, competition or research forms, through our websites (by cookie technology - see below), through the use of order forms and every time you email us your details, post a message to a bulletin board or provide shipping and billing information for an online, postal or telephone purchase.

Any personal information you provide to us while visiting this Website or otherwise is confidential, and only used for the purposes described below. We guarantee never to sell Personal Information or share that information with third parties unrelated to EP without your express permission, except to any third-party suppliers we engage to develop, manage or host the site or our databases or pursuant to any properly executed court order from a competent jurisdiction or if otherwise required to do so by law.

Personal Information is: your name, phone number, contact details, date of birth, job, course information, recommended text, personal interests, credit card information, email address, shopping selections and data about the pages you visit on this site.

This may be used by us to process your online purchases, to inform you about other products and services, to improve the products and services we offer or for other marketing or statistical purposes and otherwise to better meet the needs and preferences of our customers.

If you are aged 18 and under, you must have your parent or guardian's permission before you provide personal information to us. We do not wish to collect any personal information without this permission.

We do not wish to collect any personal information from children under 13. Where we find that a person is under 13, then we will immediately tell them not to provide any personal information to us.

This Website creates a cookie (a small piece of computer code) which is sent to and stored on your computer containing a unique session identifier only. This identifier is used to record site usage statistics. In a separate automatic operation the web server will collect your IP address and details of the Website where you came from before entering this Website. This information is used to:

  1. work out how many times this Website has been visited;
  2. record which parts of the Website have been visited so we can improve the content and layout of the Website.

The information collected is stored on your computer and will automatically be deleted if you do not revisit this Website for 90 days.

If you do not agree to this Website's use of cookies you will need to disable cookies in your web browser settings - in doing so you may experience some loss of functionality while browsing the Website, particularly related to the online shopping basket.

Users should be reminded that any Personal Information that is voluntarily posted by a user to a public area of the Website, such as a bulletin board, may be collected and used by others. We cannot prevent such uses.

When you place orders through this site or access your account information, we automatically send you to a secure server, provided your browser accepts Secure Sockets Layer encryption. In addition, as required by the Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we endeavour to prevent unauthorised access to the information through strict security procedures regarding its storage and disclosure.

Our cookies do not contain any personal information, but they do enable us to provide the ability to store items in your shopping basket while browsing. They expire when you leave the site.

Through your use of this site, you consent to the above policy regarding use and collection of your Personal Information by EP and its agents. Any changes to the policy will be posted on this page, and it is your responsibility to check this regularly in case there are any changes. Continuing to use the site after a change has been made is your acceptance of the changes.
