Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling our customers' personal information to others. We share customers' information only as described below:

  • Third Party Service Providers
    We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders for products or services, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, processing payments etc.
    These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by applicable data protection laws.
  • Protection of JPT EUROPE and Others
    We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements or protect the rights, property or safety of JPT EUROPE LTD., our users or others.  This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection.
  • Social networks
    a) Use of your information regarding social networks
    The use of social networks and the services of JPT EUROPE in relation to these social networks is susceptible to imply the collecting and exchange of certain data between the social networks and JPT EUROPE. We advise you to carefully read the privacy policies of the social networks for precise information on what personal information collected by the social networks can be given to JPT EUROPE, as well as the purposes of the use of your information, among others for advertisement. The social networks allow you to personalize your privacy settings. We monitorize and collect certain personal information and data regarding your activity on our social network pages. We use this information to enhance our customer relations and to offer them a more personalized experience. The information we collect on social networks is subject to this privacy policy. However, JP BOOKS is not responsible for the use of your information by the social networks. 
    b) "Plug-ins" and social network modules
    Our website uses "plug-ins" or social network modules, such as the "Like" or "Share" buttons in social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ which you can find on "Home" or in the product descriptions. They allow you to say that you "like" our page or our products and to share information with your social network friends. When you are browsing a page of our site that contains social network plug-ins or modules, a connection with the servers of those networks is established, informing them about your accessing our site, even if you don't have a Facebook or Twitter account or if you are not logged in at that moment. For example: if you are logged in to a social network while you browse the site, the social networks you are logged in to can mention your visit to our site in your account. If you use one of the plug-ins (for example: "like"), your actions can be stored and published in your social network accounts according to privacy settings of your account. If you do not want the social networks to publish your plug-in activities, you should log off your social network accounts before visiting our page. 



You can access your information, including your name, address, payment options, profile information and purchase history in the "Your Account" section of the website

Please see here for a list of examples that you can access.

- status of recent orders;
- your complete order history;

You may also object to our processing of your personal data or ask that we restrict the processing of your personal data in certain instances. If you wish to do any of these things, please contact Customer Service.



We keep your personal information to enable your continued use of our services, for as long as it is required in order to fulfill the relevant purposes described in this Privacy Notice, as may be required by law such as for tax and accounting purposes, or as otherwise communicated to you. For example, we retain your transaction history so that you can review past purchases (and repeat orders if desired) and what addresses you have shipped orders to, and to improve the relevancy of products and content we recommend.
