We respect your privacy


The Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (The ABAA) and its partners, Bibliopolis, LLC and Biblio, Inc., are dedicated to protecting the privacy of their Website visitors. In order to show this commitment, The ABAA and said affiliates follow certain procedures designed to safeguard the information you entrust to them on this Website. These procedures are set forth in the following paragraphs.

The ABAA is the sole owner of the information collected on The ABAA Website. The ABAA collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Website. The ABAA does not materially alter the information provided by its Website visitors, nor does it supplement the information from its own or third party sources.

Registration:
When using The ABAA Website, you have the option to create a user name and password by completing a registration form. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest.

Orders:
If you place an order on The ABAA Website, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and, depending on the payment method you choose, you may be asked to provide financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).

We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. We will also use this information to notify you when your order has been shipped and to contact you if we have trouble processing your order.

Email to a friend:
If you choose to use our 'email to a friend' service to tell a friend about a book you found on The ABAA Website, we will ask you for your friends name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email with a link to the item on The ABAA Website. The ABAA does not store this information and uses it for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our 'email to a friend' program.

Agents:
We use a credit card processing company to bill you for orders placed on The ABAA Website. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

Service Providers:
As a marketplace site, we rely of the services of our Bookseller Members to process and ship your order. To make it possible for our Bookseller Members to process and ship your order, we share your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, phone number and email address.

Our Bookseller Members are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information and financial information for any other purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Website.

If you use a bulletin board, blog, or post book reviews or comments on this Website, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

We do not sell, rent or share your Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties unless we have your prior consent to do so.

Choice/Opt-out:
When you register for an account on The ABAA Website you are asked if you would like to receive the The ABAA Website monthly newsletter.
We provide you the opportunity to opt-out of having your email address used for this purpose when we ask for this information. For example, if you create an account but do not wish to receive our newsletter, you can indicate your preference on our registration form.

If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, you may opt-out of receiving it by following the instructions included in each newsletter or you may contact us at support@abaa.org

You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information:
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, or update it by making the change on our account information page (http://www.abaa.org/account_menu.php) or by emailing our Customer Support at support@abaa.org or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.

Tracking Technologies:
Some of our business partners (e.g., web analytics providers and affiliate management providers) use cookies on our site. These cookies may be used to gather general demographic information about website visitors. We do not link this demographic information to personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use this general demographic information for marketing purposes.

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by The ABAA Website only and does not cover the use of cookies by any business partners.

Security Practices:
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can send email us at support@abaa.org.


Changes in this Privacy Statement:
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
