Our Privacy Policy

Not Just Books places a great deal of importance in customer privacy.

Not Just Books is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and those using our website site. We respect the confidentiality of the personal information which our customers provide us with. This policy covers the information we collect from you to process orders, provide services, such as our loyalty scheme, and for marketing purposes.

Not Just Books will never sell personal information under any circumstances and will never share personal information with third parties unless strictly necessary in order to provide services to you or to fulfil your order. We never store credit card details or any other financial information.

We use the information we collect to serve our customers in the following ways:

Customer Orders

When an order is placed in the shop the information needed to complete it is transferred to our Customer order system. We mostly only need to know your name and a means to contact you. This can be a phone number or email address. If you wish to have a book delivered then we will also need your address.  This information enables us to fulfil your order and keep you informed of the progress of your order. We do hold details of customers order history as this can often help with future orders. This information is stored electronically on a securely protected and encrypted hard drive. If you wish to have your details removed after completion of your order, please contact us at notjustbooks.co.uk

Loyalty Card

If sign up for a Not Just Books loyalty card we will ask if you would like also like to join our mailing list in which case we will need your email address. However, you may hold our loyalty card without joining the mailing list, in which case the only details we hold to administer the loyalty card scheme is your name and loyalty card number. We store this information securely on a protected and encrypted hard drive.

Mailing List

If you sign up to receive Not Just Books email newsletter we will only ask for your name and email address. We will then send you periodic newsletters containing book news, invitations to author events, promotions and competitions.
