The information we collect from you is used to fill orders you place through the FIA Bookstore, which includes the processing of payment information, preparing orders for shipment, and providing order confirmations and other order-related communication. In addition, we use information from your visit to our web page to improve and optimize your customer experience, to screen for potential risk and fraud, and to communicate with you.

We will not sell, trade, rent or disclose your information to third parties, except in certain circumstances described below:

Shopping online is safe, easy and secure. Independent studies have shown that using a credit card online over a secure server is safer than ordering by phone or fax. To protect your personal information, we take great precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure your information is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. Once your information is on our server, it is encrypted and your credit card information is deleted once the transaction has completed successfully. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to guard information. SSL is the industry standard for online security. If your account has 3 credit card declines in a 24-hour period, as a result of invalid information being submitted, your account may be temporarily disabled for security purposes. If you feel your account has been disabled in error, please contact Customer Service at [email protected]
Alas, no information transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information exchanged between you and us through our web page cannot be guaranteed and we shall have no liability to you or any third party for loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration of such information; and (c) any such information may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
In the unlikely event that we believe there has been a security breach; we will notify you via email. If you prefer for us to use another method to notify you in this situation, please contact us at [email protected].
