Is it safe to pay online?

When you book your dinner with The Book Society, your personal details are completely safe. We use industry standard secure server software, which protects your information as it is transmitted over the Internet. Your order is encrypted so that no one else can read it, and is not decoded until it reaches our secure server.

When it reaches us, only authorised personnel will see it. We do not store your credit card details online, so other internet users cannot access your details. In the event of fraudulent or unauthorised use of your card, most banks and card issuers will not hold you liable for the charges incurred – or will only hold you liable for the first £50.

We are confident that whilst you are using our site, there is no chance of this happening. So, if through no fault of your own, unauthorised use of your card takes place through our secure server, we will cover your liability up to a maximum of £50.

This guarantee is limited to purchases made through our secure server and is subject to notification of your card issuer in line with its regulations.
