Does beanstalkbooks.co.uk Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only when required and as described below:
Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include, delivering packages, processing credit card payments, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
How Secure Is the Information?
Protecting Your Credit Card Information: beanstalkbooks.com pledges a safe and worry-free shopping experience. We use the industry standard for Internet security, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL 128-bit) encryption to scramble your personal and credit card information as it travels over the Internet during the checkout process. This encryption is the same security and encryption technology used by banks, restaurants, and other retailers and it is impossible for anyone to read your information in transit. You will know you're in the "secure" area of our site when you click on the "Checkout" button. Notice that the "http" portion of Beanstalkbooks.co.uk's web site address in your browser changes to "https." The "s" stands for "secure." In addition, both Netscape and Internet Explorer use special symbols to indicate that you're in a Web site's secure area. (Earlier versions of Netscape use a highlighted key. More recent versions of Netscape and all versions of Internet Explorer show a closed, highlighted lock.) Some browsers let you know that you're moving in or out of a secure area by notifying you with a special pop-up window that requires you to click "ok" before continuing.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
