Privacy Policy

Blackwell Publishing Ltd takes the privacy of its customers very seriously. Please read the following policy to understand how we will treat your personal information when you use our site. If this policy changes then we will let you know via our homepage, and will give you the opportunity to opt out of any changes which affect you.

What information do we collect?

When you buy anything via the site, or when you request sample material, we will require information about you to process the transaction and fulfill your order. This information may include, but is not limited to, details such as your name, your address and your credit card details. When you view our site by linking from another web page we may store the name of that web page for purposes of internal administration. We also collect general data about the movement of visitors through our site, but this does not use any personal identifiable information. It is used to improve web site structure and content.

What are cookies and how do we use them?

Cookies are small amounts of information that are sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive and contain information as to the internet sites you have visited. We may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you and to personalise your contact with us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can usually change your browser to prevent this, although you may not be able to access some parts of our site without them.

How do we use your information?

We will use the information you give us within Blackwell Publishing Ltd and its associated companies (including John Wiley & Sons Ltd) to notify you occasionally about important changes to our site and new services, and about publications that may be of interest to you.

We do not sell, trade or rent the information we get from you on this site to others.

We do share statistical information with other organisations as part of our marketing. These statistics will not include any personal identifying information. We collect this by monitoring traffic on the site and using anonymous data. We can then construct a specific interest group which assists us in improving and marketing our site.

Where there are links on our site to other sites the content of those linked sites is not covered by this privacy policy. These other sites will have separate privacy and data collection practices. We do not have responsibility or liability for these independent policies.

We may disclose information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is:

  • reasonably necessary to comply with the law
  • enforce or apply our terms of business
  • protect our rights and those of our users

What security measures do we use?

Connecting to our secure server means that all your personal information is encrypted using the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) so that it cannot be read while travelling over the Internet. All the data we collect from you on our site is protected against unauthorised access.

Your consent

By using our website you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide to us. If we change our privacy policy we will highlight the changes on this page.
