Privacy Notice

 Jurisdictional Issues

We control and operate this site from our offices in the United States of America. We do not represent that materials on the site are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Persons who choose to access this site from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.


Choice of Law

If any disputes arise regarding your use of this Site, such disputes shall be resolved according to the laws of the State of New York, without reference to its choice of law provisions, and the federal or state courts of the City and County of New York shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all claims. If any of these terms and conditions are found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be considered severable from the remaining terms and conditions, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.

All textual graphical and other content appearing on this web site are the property of Welcome Books or in some cases the property of others from whom Welcome Books has secured permission.


Privacy Policy

Welcome Books respects the privacy of our online visitors and we are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our Site.

This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our site. All changes will be posted here. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please send an e-mail to webmaster@welcomebooks.com.


Personal Information

We will not sell, trade, or give out e-mail addresses to companies or other organizations. We will not intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number or e-mail address) to any third party without having first received your permission. We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of, or participation in, contests, sweepstakes, games, surveys, submissions, chat and bulletin boards. However, we will only collect this personal information from you if it has been voluntarily submitted to us.

Any personal information provided to us may be used in connection with the activities previously referred to above. Should you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information in order to respond to your questions or comments. We may also keep your comments or questions for future reference.

It is important to note that if you give out personal information online, through a message board or chat room, for example, that information may be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users' privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these arenas. You disclose such information at your own risk.


Exception

One exception to this policy is that we will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order.


Privacy of Minors

Welcome Books does not solicit personal information from minors. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without prior verifiable parental consent.

If we become aware that a subscriber is under the age of thirteen (13) and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. Please note, we may maintain a record of that person's name and address in a "do not register" file to avoid subsequent registration by a child under the age of thirteen (13).
