This privacy policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy whilst you use the Pluto Press website.

We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).

We may change this policy from time to time. If we do, any changes will be detailed on this page for you to refer to. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or anything else please contact us at [email protected] or alternatively, write to us at:

We may collect the following information:

  • Name and contact information including your email address
  • Your geographical location – e.g. country, city or postcode
  • Your preferences and areas of interest – e.g. as indicated in our newsletter sign-ups
  • Information about your purchases or downloads

Pluto Press collects the details you provide when creating a user account, together with information we may learn about you from your use of our service and your visits to our website. We also collect information about the purchases you make with us (but we don’t process, handle or retain any card details). We may collect additional information in connection with your participation in any promotions or competitions offered by us, and information you provide when giving us feedback. We also monitor traffic patterns and site use in order to try and improve our website.

What we do with the information we gather:

  • We will use your contact details to contact you about new books, authors, events and other developments (unless you choose to opt out of promotional emails)
  • We will keep records of your transactions in case of any questions, replacements or refunds
  • We may use it to customise the website to highlight books, authors or events we think you might be interested in
  • We may store your billing and shipping addresses so that you can reuse them

To change any of your contact details or account settings please log in, click ‘My Account’ and make changes. If you do not want to receive promotional emails from us, simply scroll to the bottom of any email you have received and click ‘unsubscribe from this list’. You will still receive emails from us to confirm any purchases, and there may be instances where it is necessary for us to communicate with you, in any event, for administrative or operational reasons relating to our service.

Non-disclosure to third parties

Unless we have your express consent, we will only disclose your personal data to third parties if this is required for the purpose of completing your transaction with us. Your card details will be securely collected and processed by our payment provider. In the case of buying print books from us, Pluto will securely pass on your name, shipping address and order to our distributor for fulfillment. In the case of buying ebooks, we securely pass on your email address to BooXtream, who apply the Social DRM to our ebooks.

We use your information only as set out in this Policy and will not sell, rent or pass your information on to others for marketing purposes without your express consent. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors and relevant affiliate partners, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.


If you decide to delete your account then all of your personal account details will be deleted.
