Privacy and Terms of Use

Privacy Notice

American Chesterton Society knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting www.chesterton.org you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What personal information about customers does Chesterton.org gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at chesterton.org. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us | We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.

Automatic Information | We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses chesterton.org. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at chesterton.org if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.

E-mail Communications | To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from chesterton.org if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us accordingly via e-mail at info@chesterton.org.

Information from Other Sources | For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.

Does ACS Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only with the companies with whom ACS works or is affiliated, as described below.

Agents | We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, maintaining and/or hosting the chesterton.org web site or our e-mail servers, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

With Your Consent | Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

We transmit your entire credit card number and related credit information to the appropriate credit card processing company on a secure basis during order processing.

The Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own web site (www.ftc.gov).

This Notice and the Terms of Use will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our web site frequently to see recent changes.
