We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
The information we collect and how we use it
When you register with Hansib and/or place an order, we need to know your name, delivery address, credit or debit card number and expiry date, email address and telephone and/or mobile number. This information allows us to fulfil your order and notify you of its status.
We may, from time to time, send with your ordered products, inserts advertising the goods or services of unrelated third party companies. We do not pass on your personal data to these third party companies.
We may also use your information for the purpose of providing you with information about any special offers, book launches, author signings and other events or features of our website which we think may be of interest to you and for related marketing purposes.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and your details on our database.
We monitor customer traffic on an aggregate basis in order to help us develop and improve our website for the benefit of our customers. In order to enhance your use of the website you will be given a session ID which will only last for the duration of that visit to the site. Each time you visit the site you will have a different session ID.

Security of your information
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us. This is to prevent unauthorised access or unlawful processing of your personal information. We keep your information confidential and store it on a secure server which is password protected and hidden behind a firewall from the outside world. We use secure socket layer software (SSL) to encrypt all of your personal information including your credit/debit card number and your name and address. Hansib Publications internal procedures cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
The VeriSign Secure Site Program allows you to learn more about websites you visit before you submit any confidential information. When you see a VeriSign logo, clicking on it will verify that this website is secure.
Non-disclosure to third parties
Unless we have your express consent, we will only disclose your personal data to third parties if this is required for the purpose of completing your transaction with us. This is subject to the proviso that we may disclose or transfer your data to a partner company where you have supplied information via a site which is co-branded with that partner company or to members of our own group. If personally identifying data about you may be shared with a partner company, we will tell you before we collect or transfer the data so that you may opt out of this transfer if you wish.
Hansib Publications may, however, provide aggregate statistics about its customers, sales traffic patterns and related website information to reputable third-party vendors and relevant affiliate partners, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information. We may also release account information where we believe, in good faith, that this release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law.
