Privacy Policy

We are committed to preserving the privacy of all visitors to our website. If you are interested in understanding how we use and protect the information that you provide to us, please read on.

User Consent

By using this website, users agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy as stated here. Whenever information is submitted via this website, users consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with the Rheinwerk Publishing Privacy Policy.

Information that We Collect from You

Rheinwerk Publishing collects personally-identifying information during the registration/subscription process. In addition, information is collected through certain portions of this website where users specifically and knowingly provide such information along with content submissions, subscribing to a newsletter, entering a sweepstakes, contests, promotions, reviews or suggestions. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you elect not to register or provide such information, you may not be able to access certain content or features or participate in certain areas of the website.

Use of Your Non-Personal Information and Personal Information

Rheinwerk Publishing may use non-personal information and personal information for internal purposes only, such as to notify you of new products or services, product fulfillment, customer service, to customize the advertising and content you see, to improve the website, to conduct research, to obtain editorial feedback or input about the website, and to provide more relevant products, services, and advertisements on or throughout the website. Non-personal information and personal information may be combined with data collected from other sources so that we may further improve the relevance of products, services, and advertisements offered on or through the website.

Disclosure of Your Information

The information you provide to us may be accessed by or given to third parties. Those parties process information, fulfill and deliver orders, process credit card payments and provide support services on our behalf. We may also pass aggregate information on the usage of our website to third parties but this will not include information that can be used to identify you.

Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the personal information you provide to us (including your email and postal address) to companies or persons outside of Rheinwerk Publishing without your consent.


This website uses cookies. Cookies are a technology that can be used to provide you with tailored information from a website. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.

We use these cookies to enable you to access certain parts of this website, to save passwords and preferences, to complete certain transactions (e.g. ordering books), to allow you to customize some areas of the website, and to analyze our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our advertising and analytics partners.

Removing Cookies

The website is a great resource that explains how to easily delete and control cookies from any website. If you want to delete any cookies that have been sent to you by this—or any other—website then we highly recommend you visit and follow the instructions.

Security and Data Retention

We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorized persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We take reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as a user transmits information from his or her computer to the website and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the website may not be secure, and users should therefore take special care in deciding what information users send to the website via e-mail. Moreover, where users use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on the website, it is a user’s responsibility to safeguard them. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.

Information Practices for Children Under 13

This website is not directed at children 13 years of age or younger. Therefore, Rheinwerk Publishing will not intentionally collect information about any user under the age of 13.

Opt-in/Opt-out of E-Mail Communications

Upon registration or periodically, you may be asked to indicate whether you are interested in receiving information from us about special offers or news about our products and services. If you do not opt-out of receiving these types of messages, we will occasionally send you an e-mail message that matches your request(s). You may, of course, always choose not to receive any of this information from us. At any time, you can follow a link provided in every e-mail message to unsubscribe from that mailing list or e-mail service.

Please note than any opt-out or request not to receive future e-mails will not apply to communications that relate to payment confirmations or reminders, communications in the event of a change in our terms and conditions or this privacy policy and for other administrative purposes relating to your access to Rheinwerk Publishing.

Linking and Third Party Sites

Please note that we are not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of websites to which our website may link. Our privacy policy does not apply to the policies and practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage.

Changes and Updates to Our Privacy Policy

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted to the website and, where appropriate, through e-mail notification. We encourage you to periodically review this policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of this website constitutes your agreement to this privacy policy, updates, and the use of cookies.
