Biblio, Inc. d/b/a BookGilt ("BookGilt"), including its partners and affiliates, is dedicated to protecting the privacy of its Web site visitors. In order to show this commitment, BookGilt follows certain procedures designed to safeguard the information you entrust to it. These procedures are set forth in the following paragraphs.
BookGilt is the sole owner of the information collected on BookGilt. BookGilt collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site. BookGilt does not materially alter the information provided by its Web site visitors, nor does it supplement the information from its own or third party sources.
When using BookGilt, 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.
BookGilt may offer premium services via paid subscription. If you subscribe to premium services on BookGilt, 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 subscription. We will also use this information to renew your subscription and to periodically communicate with you about your subscription.
We use a credit card processing company to bill you for orders placed on BookGilt. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
As a metasearch engine, we work with the third-party marketplaces and retailers ("partners") via API. These partners are responsible for the processing and fulfillment of any orders you place.
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 Web site.
If you use a bulletin board, blog, or post book reviews or comments on this Web site, 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.
When you register for an account on BookGilt you may optionally subscribe to various want match services which notify you in the event a book you are looking for becomes available for sale. If you do not wish to receive these e-mails from us, you may unsubscribe from receiving want matches.
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.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. [We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site.] A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser.

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.
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.
