While you can visit the Volumes website without registering or providing any personal information, you will need to register if you want to make a purchase. The personal information requested is necessary to process your order.
Volumes believes that your personal information -- including your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card data -- belongs to you. While we collect this type of information when you provide it to us, we do not rent or sell it to third parties. We use it only to process orders and to provide a more personalized shopping experience.
The National Cyber Security Alliance has created a website, which provides general tips on how to protect your privacy online. The FTC has also created another website, Site Seeing on the Internet, which provides general tips about navigating the Internet. Both websites are filled with information about how to use the Internet wisely, how to avoid fraud and deception online, and how to keep personal information private.
What information does Volumes collect?
When users visit Volumes’ website, there are two types of information that can be collected.
The first type of information is known as "personally identifiable information" and can only be collected when an order is placed. This information includes your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card data. This information allows us to process and fulfill your order as well as to notify you of your order status. Volumes has never and will never share this information with a third-party vendor unless stipulated below.
Volumes may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to:
(1) courier your product to you
(2) we are compelled to do so by law or by an order of a court or governmental authority
(3) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or
(4) protect the rights, property or safety of Volumes, our users, or others.
The second type of information is known as "non-personally identifiable information" and is collected upon each visit to our website. Our server automatically recognizes visitors' domain names and Internet Protocol addresses (where possible). We also collect information about how visitors use the site. This information, which is collected and maintained in an anonymous, non-personal, and composite form, allows us to improve the content of our website and facilitate market research.
Does Volumes use non-personally identifiable information?
On occasion, we may provide non-personally identifiable information about our users, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors to help us understand this information better. However, these statistics will not include any personally identifiable information. Other than improving our website and providing our visitors with the best experience possible, we make no other use of this information.
How does Volumes protect user information?
Volumes uses the latest encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. All your ordering information -- including your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card data -- is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security.
Credit card transactions are handled directly by Volumes and are not sent to a third party. Furthermore, your credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your credit card information, we store only the last five digits on a server that isn't accessible from the Internet, and even then, that information is automatically deleted after 14 days.
If you feel more comfortable doing so, you may place your book order over the telephone by calling 888-571-BOOK (2665). Volumes has a department fully dedicated to placing book orders.
When you visit a website, information may be stored in a file known as a "cookie." This file is stored on your computer and is used for future reference. If you revisit a website, the cookie allows our website to identify you as a returning guest and tailor your shopping experience to you.
Most web browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your web browser's help file to learn more about these functions. If you have disable cookies in your web browser, you can still use all the features on our site, but you won't be able to make any purchases, and you won't receive the benefits of auto-fill or automatic login.
The information contained in our cookies is only used by Volumes. Your web browser will not pass a cookie to a site other than the one that created it.
How does Volumes allow customers to update or change the information it collects?
You may update or change information related to your account by contacting Volumes directly at 888-571-BOOK (2665). To better protect your privacy, Volumes does not store your personal information online, and thus you can not change it online.
Volumes’ website has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of all information.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
