Secure Checkout/SSL Certificate

All About Books secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. All About Books uses the following methods for this purpose:

  • SSL Protocol

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.

Credit Card Protocols

We strive to ensure the security of your personal information. All credit card data stored on your customer record is protected with PCI Compliant encryption. For security purposes, please do NOT send any written correspondence with your credit card data to All About Books. We ask you to enter your credit card information into the secured forms on the website (during checkout or adding a Payment Method in My Account). If you have any questions, concerns, or issues saving your credit card to your account, feel free to contact Customer Service via online form, email, or by calling (866) 732-3667.

Once your credit card is securely saved in My Account, you can use the stored information to pay invoices online (My Account > Billing > Invoice) or by calling and our billing department can charge your card for the desired amount.

Please note that if you store credit card information in your online account, you are responsible for managing any changes to your credit card(s), including card number, expiration date, billing address, and/or card status.
