Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets forth the Company's policy with respect to the information the Company collects from Users, how the Company uses such information, and under what circumstances the Company discloses it. Unless otherwise noted, any defined terms herein shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Terms of Use (the "Terms of Use"). By visiting any area on the Site or making a purchase via the Site, a User acknowledges he or she has read, understood and agrees to be bound by the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.


  1. The Information The Company Collects
    When the User uses the Site, the Company receives and collects certain information. The information that the Company receives and collects depends on what the User does when visiting the Site.
    • Automatically Collected Information. Some personally non-identifiable information is automatically received and sometimes collected from the User when visiting the Site. The Company receives and collects the name of the domain and host from which the User accesses the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer the User is using; the browser software the User is using and the User's operating system; the date and time the User is accessing the Site; and the Internet address of the web site from which the User linked directly to the Site. The Company uses this information to monitor the usage of the Site. Also, when the Company send emails to the User, the Company may be able to identify information about the User's email address, such as whether the User can read graphic-rich HTML emails. All of the information the Company automatically captures provides the Company with the ability to enhance the Company's customers' search and shopping experiences and to determine aggregate information about the Company's user base and usage patterns. Company may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Company affiliates, agents or service providers.
    • Information Collected via Cookies. The Company uses a technology called "cookies" to enhance the browsing and shopping experience on the Site and to analyze Site usage more accurately. "Cookies" are small files or records that the computer that hosts the Site places on the User's computer hard drive to collect information about the User's activities on the Site and to add functionality to the Site. The cookies transmit this information back to the computers at the Company or the Company's third-party distributors of banners and newsletters. The information captured makes it possible for the Company (i) to speed navigation, keep track of items in the User's shopping cart, and provide the User with custom tailored content; (ii) to remember information the User gave to the Company so the User doesn't have to reenter it each time the User visits the Site; (iii) to monitor the effectiveness of certain of the Company's marketing email campaigns; and (iv) to monitor total number of visitors, pages viewed, and the total number of banners served. In all cases in which the Company uses cookies, it will not collect personally identifiable data, except with a User's permission. Most people do not know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit the Site or most web sites because browsers are typically set to accept cookies. On most web browsers, Users will find a "help" section on the toolbar. A User should refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when he or she is receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off.. If the User refuses cookies, the User will not be able to open a shopping cart on the Site and therefore will not be able to complete an order with the Company online. Also, by not using cookies, the User's overall Internet browsing experience will be affected.
    • Information the User Actively Submits to the Site. The Company collects personally identifiable information, such as the User's name, email address, billing address, shipping address(es), phone number and voucher number, as applicable ("Personal Customer Information") when Users voluntarily provide such information. For instance, such Personal Customer Information is provided by Users to the Company when they wish to complete an order from the Site or when they contact the Company with inquiries. By voluntarily providing the Company with Personal Customer Information, Users are consenting to the Company's use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If Users provide Personal Customer Information to this Site, Users acknowledge and agree that such Personal Customer Information may be transferred from such User's current location to the offices and servers of the Company and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

  2. How the Company Uses and Shares Personal Customer Information
    The Company uses the Personal Customer Information provided by Users in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If a User provides Personal Customer Information for a certain reason, the Company may use it in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if a User contacts the Company by e-mail, the Company will use the Personal Customer Information to answer the question or resolve the problem. Also, if a User provides Personal Customer Information in order to purchase items on the Site, we will use such Personal Customer Information to provide such User with access to such services and to monitor such User's use of such services. The Company and its affiliates may also use Personal Customer Information and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our Users and to improve the Company services. The Company and its affiliates may use such information to contact Users as set forth in Section 3 below. The Company does not share the User's Personal Customer Information that the Company collects except as follows:
    • Agents, Subcontractors and Service Providers. The Company sends Personal Customer Information to certain third-party subcontractors, agents and service providers that work on the Company's behalf to provide certain services. Examples of such services include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. These third parties are only granted the right to use the Personal Customer Information as is necessary to assist the Company. They are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the Personal Customer Information and to use such information only as expressly authorized by the Company.
    • Publishers. In some instances the Company may share Personal Customer Information with the publisher, copyright holder or author of the products User purchases on the Site. These parties may use such Personal Customer Information to verify that a User has obtained the course materials or to send updates, corrections or other information related to those materials.
    • Educational Institutions. In applicable situations the Company enters into agreements with educational institutions, under which the Company may provide services and other consideration to the educational institution. The Company may share Personal Customer Information with any educational institutions to which the User belongs. The educational institution may use a User's Personal Customer Information to, among other things, verify such User has obtained the course materials required for a particular course, or verify compliance with any applicable agreement.
    • Law Enforcement Investigations. The Company may release Personal Customer Information when the Company believes, in the Company's good judgment, that such release is reasonably necessary to comply with law, enforce or apply the terms of any of the Company's policies or user agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, the Company's users, or others.
    • Related Companies. The Company may share Personal Customer Information with its affiliates for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.
    • Business Transfers. As the Company develops its business, the Company may sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Customer Information may be part of the transferred assets.

  3. Communications from the Company
    By using the Site and placing orders, the User may receive communications from the Company relating to: order confirmations; order updates; order problems; material changes to Site policies and account management procedures. The Company may also communicate with a User regarding Company services that the Company believes may be of interest to such User. Users may, at any time, choose not to receive such promotional emails and may opt-out by following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the applicable email, or use the Contact Us page on the Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may continue to contact Users for the purpose of communicating information about their account with the Company, as well as to facilitate, complete or confirm any transaction that Users voluntarily enter into or in response to or fulfillment of Users' voluntary inquiries or requests.

  4. Underage Customers
    The Company's products and services are marketed for purchase by adults or with the consent of adults. The Company does not knowingly collect Personal Customer Information from children under the age of 13. If a User is under the age of 13, such User should not submit any Personal Customer Information through the Site. If a User has reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Customer Information to the Company through this Site, please contact the Company, and the Company will endeavor to delete the applicable information from its databases.

  5. Linking to Third-Party Web Sites
    This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site. The Site may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by the Company (the "Third Party Sites"). The links from the Site do not imply that the Company endorses or has reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies. For instance, we use a third-party payment processor to accept and process credit and debit card payments when you purchase goods via the Site. The information provided to the payment processor is governed by the payment processor's privacy policy. As of December 2014, the Company uses PayPal, Inc. as its third-party payment processor. We may change the payment processor in the future.

  6. Questions or Comments
    If the User has any questions regarding this Privacy Policy or needs to update any Personal Customer Information, please email the Company by using the Contact Us page on the Site.

  7. Protecting the User's Information
    The Personal Customer Information the User provides to create and access an account with the Company and to make purchases from the Company is secured using industry standard e-commerce security technology such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. The Company uses this SSL technology to help prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. The encrypted data goes to a secure Site where the User's information is stored on restricted-access computers located at restricted-access sites. Nevertheless, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. The Company does not guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Site because the operation of the website may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of the Company's control.

  8. Voucher Purchases
    In cases of school voucher purchases, the Company cross checks certain Personal Customer Information to validate access to the User's account and amounts the User may purchase with using a school voucher. Please keep Personal Customer Information secure; do not share it with anyone, as this information may allow others to gain access to the User's account to make purchases.

  9. Remember to Sign Out
    To further prevent unauthorized access to the User's account, remember that, after the User signs in, the User should sign out once the User has (i) completed the transaction, or (ii) decided to step away from the User's computer. Anyone who accesses the User's computer after the User has signed in but before the User has either signed out or the User's session has timed-out can access the User's account.

  10. Changes to Privacy Policy
    The Company reserves the right to modify or amend this policy at any time by posting the revised Privacy Policy on the Site. The changes will only affect the information the Company collects after the effective date of the change to this Privacy Policy unless the Company clearly expresses otherwise. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Customer Information. Your continued use of the Site after any changes or revisions to this Privacy Policy shall indicate your agreement with the terms of such revised Privacy Policy.

  3. CONTENT

    Proprietary Rights
    User acknowledges that the Site contains Content that is protected by copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights, and that these rights are valid and protected in all forms, media and technologies existing now or hereinafter developed. All Content is copyrighted as a collective work under the U.S. copyright laws, and the Company owns a copyright in the selection, coordination, arrangement, and enhancement of such Content. User may not modify, remove, delete, augment, add to, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, create derivative works from, or in any way exploit any of the Content, in whole or in part. If no specific restrictions are displayed, a User may make limited copies of select portions of the Content, provided that (a) the copies are made only for such User's personal use and (b) such User maintains any notices contained in the Content on any copy thereof, such as all copyright notices, trademark legends, or other proprietary rights notices. Except as provided in the preceding sentence or as permitted by the fair use privilege under the U.S. copyright laws (see, e.g., 17 U.S.C. Section 107), User may not upload, post, reproduce, or distribute in any way Content, without obtaining permission of the owner of the copyright or other propriety right. In addition to the foregoing, Users agree not to attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any of the software comprising or making up the Web Site.

    Third-Party Content
    The trademarks, service marks, and logos of the Company (the "Company Trademarks") used and displayed on the Site are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of the Company. Other company, product, and service names located on the Site may be trademarks or service marks owned by third-parties (the "Third-Party Trademarks", and, collectively with the Company Trademarks, the "Trademarks"). Except as set forth in Section 2, nothing on the Site or in the Terms of Use should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed on the Site without the prior written consent of the Company specific for each such use. The Trademarks may not be used to disparage the Company or the applicable third-party, the Company's or third-party's products or services, or in any manner (using commercially reasonable judgment) that may damage any goodwill in the Trademarks.

  4. EXPORT
    We make no claims concerning whether the Content may be downloaded, viewed, or be appropriate for use outside of the United States. If you access the Site or the Content from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. The U.S. export control laws regulate the export and re-export of technology originating in the United States. This includes the electronic transmission of information and software to foreign countries and to certain foreign nationals. User agrees to abide by these laws and their regulations -- including but not limited to the Export Administration Act and the Arms Export Control Act -- and not to transfer, export or re-export, by electronic transmission or otherwise, any Content derived from the Site to either a foreign national or a foreign destination in violation of such laws and regulations. By downloading Content, a User expressly agrees that such User is not in a country where such export is prohibited or is a person or entity for which such export is prohibited. Each User is solely responsible for compliance with the laws of such User's specific jurisdiction regarding the import, export, or re-export of the Content.

  5. PRICES
    To the extent that Users use the Site to purchase goods or services, Users will be required to provide information to the Company's third-party payment processor, PayPal, Inc. (or such other third-party payment processor that the Company may engage in the future) (the "Payment Processor"), regarding such Users' identity, contact information and credit card or other payment instrument. Each User represents and warrants to the Company that any such information submitted by such User is true and that such User is authorized to use the applicable payment instrument. Users agree to the amount (including any taxes) specified for the goods and services purchased on the Site in accordance with the Terms of Use.

    The price for an item on the Site may differ from the price shown in a User's shopping cart -- it is possible that such price may increase or decrease between the time the item is placed in a shopping cart and the time that the purchase is actually made. On rare occasions, an item may be priced incorrectly on the Site. If the price for any purchased item is different than the price provided at the time of purchase for such item, then, at the sole discretion of the Company, the Company may either (i) contact the User for instructions before shipping the item or charging the User for such item; (ii) cancel the order for such item and notify the User of such cancellation; or (iii) ship the item at the incorrect price to the benefit of the User.

    Please note that this policy regarding prices applies only to items sold and shipped by the Company. Any purchases from any third-party sellers on the Site may be subject to different policies in the event of an incorrectly priced item.

Upon any termination of this Agreement, the following Sections will survive: Sections 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 16.

  14. SEVERABILITY; WAIVER
    The provisions of these Terms of Use are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms of Use shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any applicable jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.

  15. APPLICABLE LAW; JURISDICTION
    The Site is created and controlled by Ambassador College Bookstores, Inc. and Ambassador Book Service, Inc., both doing business as Ambassador Education Solutions (together, the "Company").

    Alternatively, any Claim (including Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) may be adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Nassau and/or Suffolk County, New York or in the United States county where the defendant is located (in the case of the Company, Nassau and/or Suffolk County, New York, and in the User's case either in the county of such User's home address or principal place of business, or if such address is not located in the United States, then in Nassau and/or Suffolk County, New York).

    Any Claim shall be arbitrated or litigated, as the case may be, on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated with any Claim of any other party whether through class action proceedings, class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

  17. SALES TAX
    Sales tax is applied to the total amount of the order based upon applicable laws and any exemptions. Charging sales tax, and the amount of the sales tax, depends upon many factors, including the identity of the purchaser, the type of item purchased, the destination of the shipment, applicable state tax on delivery charges, and/or whether the User's state has a tax exemption for the type of item sold.

The following states may have applicable textbook tax exemptions: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri (state), New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island (used), South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
