We will use the provided information in the course of our dealings with you to process requests and orders and to provide a more personalised internet and online buying or ordering experience.

For your information, we have provided this statement explaining our online information practices.
Collection of your personal information
In general, you are able to visit Folio‘s websites without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. However, our web servers will collect information (standard information that your browser sends to every website visited) for statistical purposes, such as the number of visits, the pages viewed, which website you came from before clicking into the Folio website, the key words used to find our site, your IP-address, the browser type and language, access time, etc. Folio uses this information for improving its sites and services.
When visiting the Folio website (such as ordering books or stationery online) we ask you to consent to providing personal information, such as your email address, name, telephone number, etc. This information is required in order for us to process and fulfil your order and otherwise provide you with the information and services you may request from us (eg. rate changes of your order, cancellation of your order etc.). This information will therefore be kept by us as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above or to comply with our legal obligations (including fraud prevention, anti-money laundering and sanction screening).
For security reasons we also keep the IP-address used when the order is registered. Card holder name information is stored by Folio in order to ensure effective handling of any problems regarding charging, cancellations and/or credits. At no time will other credit card information, such as the Primary Account Number, Service Code and Expiration date be stored by Folio.
