Privacy Policy

Half Price Books believes that your personal information - including your purchase history, e-mail and residential addresses, and credit card data - belongs to you. To serve you better, we collect this type of information when you provide it to us, but we do not rent or sell your information to our affiliates or other third parties.

The Half Price Books Privacy Policy as stated above applies when you make a purchase at any Half Price Books store, purchase a Half Price Books Gift Card, visit this site, subscribe to any of our Half Price Books mailing lists, including e-mail newsletters.

When You Subscribe to Half Price Books Email. Half Price Books customers can choose to receive mail from us, including our Half Price Books e-mail newsletters as well as information about special in-store offers, sales and other promotions. To ensure that we are providing materials of interest to our customers, we may monitor whether a particular e-mail has been opened and whether recipients have clicked on the images and links therein.

Our HTML-based e-mail messages include an invisible coded sensor, commonly known as a cookie, that is activated when the e-mail message is opened. This sensor communicates the date and time the message was opened and, more importantly, whether or not the recipient is capable of receiving HTML-based e-mail. Cookies do not communicate any additional information. Only those recipients who are able to accept HTML e-mail will receive a cookie. As stated above, if you sign up to receive e-mail communications from Half Price Books, your e-mail address will not be rented or sold to any third party.

Law Enforcement and Legal Disclosure. Half Price Books may disclose your personal information to a government institution that has asserted its lawful authority to obtain the information or to comply with a subpoena or warrant or an order made by a court, person or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information, or to comply with court rules regarding the production of records and information, or to its legal disclosure of your personal information, and that use and disclosure is not subject to this Policy. Where Half Price Books has reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity or fraud, your personal information may be accessed.

What about links to and from other websites? Our website may offer links to other sites. Other sites have their own policies regarding privacy. If you visit one of these sites, you should review the privacy policy on that site.
