Hartis.org Limited, are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy whilst you use the website.
We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the data Protection Act 1998).
The information we collect and how we use it
When you register with Hartis.org 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 number. This information allows us to fulfil your order and notify you of the status of your order. All orders are fulfilled using a third party payment provider (PayPal). Hartis.org will not have access to any credit/debit card details.
We may also ask you to give us optional contact information, for example your mobile umber.
If you subscribe to our mailing lists for pre-orders and other information, you may be asked to specify the areas in which you are interested so that we can tailor the information which we send to you to cover the topics and books which we believe you might be interested in.
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, 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.
Because the Internet infrastructure is global, and it is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take, the information you provide may be transferred temporarily via a route which takes it outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and us. By submitting your information you consent to this transfer.
Opt in/Opt out
If at any time you wish to receive information about any other product areas which you currently do not receive, you can sign up to our email newsletters by logging into your account and amending your marketing preferences. Similarly you can opt out of receiving email newsletters in the same way. If you have any queries about how to use the mailing preference system, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to discuss or comment on the use of information including cookies on this website please contact: The data controller, Hartis, 3 Doridos str., 17237, Ymittos, Athens, Greece.
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 name and address. Hartis.org internal procedures cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
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.
We use your information only as set out in this Policy and will not sell, rent or pass your information on to others for marketing purposes without your express consent.
Hartis.org may however provide aggregate statistics about its customers, sales traffic patterns and related site 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.
