Non-disclosure to third parties
Unless we have your express consent, we will only disclose your personal data to third parties if this is required for the purpose of completing your transaction with us. Your card details will be securely collected and processed by our payment provider. In the case of buying print books from us, Verso will securely pass on your name, shipping address and order to our distributor for fulfillment. If any other personally identifying data about you may be shared with a partner company, we will tell you before we collect or transfer the data so that you may opt out if you wish.
We use your information only as set out in this Policy and will not sell, rent or pass your information on to others for marketing purposes without your express consent. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors and relevant affiliate partners, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
If you decide to delete your account then all of your personal account details will be deleted.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and workplace procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We do not collect or store any card details from your purchases—these are collected and processed by Braintree Payment Solutions.
Credit card information
We only store minimal card details on the Verso Books website (the card type and the last four digits, which isn’t enough to run a payment). All payments are handled securely by Braintree Payment Solutions, a validated Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant Service Provider. Braintree is on Visa's Global Compliant Provider List and MasterCard's SDP List, and their security policy is described here.
