Terms and Conditions

All books and other items are offered subject to availability of stock.

Postage. Prices include postage to a UK address. A surcharge will be made to cover the extra cost of posting to other countries.

Packaging and Insurance are not charged.

Condition of Books. The following terms are used to describe the books listed
Fine. Absolutely perfect. Unfortunately most books aren't, not even new copies. This is because printers, publishers and distributors are incapable of packing books properly. Thus this term doesn't get much use.
Very Good (VG). In very good condition, but showing slight signs of use. Most new books will be graded as VG+, that is better than VG, but not perfect.
Good (G). In reasonable second-hand condition, but with some imperfections and showing more signs of use.
Reading/Working Copy. Condition generally poor with many faults, but all text readable and illustrations present unless otherwise mentioned
Dust Jackets/Wrappers. If present indicated by the abbreviation dw.
Inscriptions. In general inscriptions if present are ignored unless they are considered to be disfiguring.

Returns. All books are described as accurately as possible, but can be returned within 10 days of receipt if found to be unacceptable. However please e-mail for instructions before returning.

Please note that the above terms only apply to books bought from me.

The EU has passed a law that requires me to tell you that this web site uses cookies and requires me to obtain your consent to use cookies. Failure to comply with this law can result in a fine of £500,000.

To come up with the best possible solution requires an extremely good knowledge of computer programming and understanding of how web sites and cookies work. I do not have this knowledge. However I have come up with a system that will hopefully suffice.

This Web Site Uses Cookies

The first type are, I believe, known as session cookies and they collect very general information and provides me with certain statistics such as number of visitors, average number of pages per visit, most frequently access pages, referring page, landing page, exit page, browser used, and operating system. It should be noted that information is just numbers and no personal details are collected. Therefore individual visitors cannot be identified.

The second type are, I believe, known as a third party cookie and is activated if and when you click on an advertisement [affiliate] link. These cookies track your visits to the external web site and are used to ensure that I get paid commission should you decide to buy something, I do not have any control over these cookies, but obviously they are required if I am going to earn any commission. I do not have access to any information collected by these cookies except very general statistics. If you buy something I know how much was spent and in some cases what product was bought. I cannot access any personal details that you may have provided to any web site you have visited via a link from my web site. Please note that none of the links on my web site are Pay per Click.

Further information on cookies can be found here and here.

What Happens When You Visit This Site

When you first visit my web site a pop up box should appear which tells you this site uses cookies. If you ignore the pop up it will fade away after a short period. If you do want this pop up to appear again when you visit the web site there is an option to turn it off. Unfortunately I cannot install a system that allows you to turn cookies off completely. However links below tell you how to delete cookies from your browser or how to alter your browser settings.

To refuse all cookies you need to alter your browser settings. Details of how to do this for most browsers can be found here.

Details of how to delete cookies on your computer can be found here.

Finally something that makes this law somewhat pointless. It only applies to EU websites. Therefore the vast majority of web sites are not required to tell you anything!

Collection of Personal Information

I do
not collect any personal information via the web site. If you order something from an affiliate I do not receive any of your personal details that you may have given them. I can some times see what has been ordered, but not who ordered it. The only time I obtain any personal information about you is if you contact me. I will then know your name and e-mail address. If you order something directly from me then I will also have your address. Payment will usually be made via PayPal. This means I do not have access to any of your financial details.

Please contact me if you have any questions or wish to comment on the above.
