Our commitment

We are resolutely committed to respecting and maintaining your trust and confidence, and value our customers and every visitor to this website. It is also deeply important to us to build a mutually fruitful relationship with you – for as long as you have an interest in our publications and general activities.

Your privacy

The following privacy notice explains the personal information we collect about you at overlapse.com, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to our working partners, and how we keep it secure.

Cookies
Cookies are tiny text files that are stored in your web browser directories. They collect anonymous details about your interaction with our website and help you navigate more efficiently. Disabling cookies may reduce website functionality.

At overlapse.com you will be assigned a cookie to enable viewing prices in a ‘localised’ currency (either GBP or USD) and, for example, to allow you to store an item in your cart while continuing to browse our site before checking out. Our site does not use cookies for tracking your activity for advertising purposes, or for any reason other than explained above.

You can manage and delete stored cookies at any time via the web browser you use. To learn more about cookies see this brief video made by The Guardian.

Personal information
During the checkout process we collect your name, billing address, shipping address and email address for the purpose of fulfilling your order and communicating with you about it.

We do not send postal mailings, other than for the purpose of fulfilling your order.

For tax purposes we store the above personal information in our invoices, for as long as it’s practically required to do so.

Financial information
We do not collect or store any of your personal financial information. Payments are securely handled by integrated third-party processors that you can select from: either Stripe for credit and debit card payments, or PayPal for card and account payments. You can view their privacy and data protection policies via the links above.

Partnerships
We currently work with Keith Cullen of Setanta Books who assists with our distribution in Europe. To fulfill a small number of orders we will share your personal mailing details with Keith.

Antenne Books distributes a selection of our titles to bookshops and resellers. If you contact us to request distribution we may share your contact information with Antenne.

We value our relationships with the bookshops that sell our titles around the world, for a list see here. On rare occasions, when you ask us to, we may share your contact details with one of these bookshops.

Email newsletter
If you opt in to receive our occasional newsletter we collect your email address. We use it to send you news about our publications, to offer special discounts, and to inform you about upcoming events. We do not buy, sell or trade email lists for marketing purposes.

We use a third-party application – currently MailPoet – to deliver our newsletter. This app provides us with statistics about email opening and clicks that we can view to monitor and improve our newsletter. You can opt out of receiving our emails at any time by clicking the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of any of our emails, or by sending a request to info@overlapse.com.

Google Analytics
When someone visits overlapse.com we use the third-party application Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and statistics about our visitor activity. The log information we collect does not personally identify anyone, but allows us to view basic details like search terms and links that were used to locate us, which countries visitors connect from, which are our most popular web pages, and what browsers and devices people use to access our website. This information assists us in developing a more efficient and engaging website. You can view their privacy policy at this link.

Links to external websites
Overlapse.com contains links to other websites, such as those of photographers and artists we work with, our partner booksellers, friends, and organisations and institutions. Our privacy notice does not apply to any website that you may visit when you click on external links.

We currently have active social media accounts with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Overlapse will never request personal details or sensitive information about you via these social media platforms.

We display ‘share buttons’ on some of our web pages to assist you in sharing our content via a few social media platforms. You may choose to use these links at your own discretion, subject to their separate terms, conditions and privacy policies.

Security
We use SSL security technology throughout our website, certified by Comodo. This ensures that all personal data that travels between our website server and your browser remains encrypted – or unintelligible to external parties.

Your rights and access to your information
If you feel wary about any of our data collection activities please inform us so that we can work to resolve your concerns as soon as possible.

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you.

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like to request a copy of this information, please email us at info@overlapse.com, or write to us at
