Purchases (Incl. BL Shop & Box Office)

When you purchase goods from us (for example, books, memorabilia, or event tickets) we will collect your contact details, delivery information, and payment details. We will use your information to provide you with the goods that you have purchased (e.g. in the performance of a contract with you). We will also use your contact information in order to supply you with relevant transactional documentation.

We may also use this data (and other data relating to your use of our Services such as audit trails) for the purpose of analysis in support of Service improvement, IT security, or other legitimate interests of the Library.

Online payments by credit or debit cards for some Services provided by the Library are processed under contract using specialist Data Processors, and in line with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. When a payment is processed by Data Processor acting on our behalf, card details are collected over a secure link and protected by industry standard software which encrypts your information.  We do not collect any payment card account details and they are not made available to us.  Our service provider will use the information you provide to process your payment or to refund any monies due to you.  Please refer to the terms and conditions for the relevant Service for further details. In particular, we use the following systems to process your information:

  • We use Netbanx, from Paysafe Financial Services Ltd., to process electronic payments. Paysafe’s Privacy Policy can be found at https://www.paysafe.com/legal-and-compliance/privacy-policy/
  • We use PayPal, from PayPal Services, to process electronic payments. PayPal may process your information in the United States and other areas outside of the EEA, and uses Binding Corporate Rules in order to implement appropriate safeguards in relation to your information. PayPal’s Privacy Policy can be found at https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.   

We will retain your commercial account information for as long as it remains current. Transactional information will be retained for the year in which the transaction took place, and then for a further six years in order to comply with tax and accounting rules.
