Because we at Teachers College Press (teacherscollegepress.com) respect our customers and understand that you are concerned about privacy, we have instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner.
Secured Transactions Policy
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than Teachers College Press. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left hand corner of your browser window after accessing the orders page. If you see an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser), SSL is active. You can double check by looking at the URL line of your browser: When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https".
Information We Collect & How We Handle It
When you make an online purchase, the information you provide allows us to process and fulfill your order, and to notify you of your order status. We need to know your name, email address, billing and mailing addresses, which are stored along with a record of the products you purchase. We also need to know your credit card number and expiration date. This information is used only to process your order. Once an online order has been confirmed, your credit card is not reused.
Teachers College Press strives to protect online customer information in the same manner we protect customer information collected through telephone, mail or fax sales. We keep confidential any information entered during ordering and registration. When customers purchase books from Teachers College Press, their shipping address is automatically added to our in-house mailing list used to inform customers of new books. Occasionally, we share our mailing list with other presses and organizations serving education professionals. If you do not want your shipping address on our mailing list, please send your request to:
Teachers College Press
1234 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, NY 10027
