The York University Bookstore respects the privacy of all its patrons. The personal information you provide will be used for the administration of Bookstore purchases and other related purposes. Likewise, should you choose to opt-in, we may send you emails regarding specials or sales being offered by the Bookstore. We will not rent, sell, loan or otherwise market your personal information to any third party outside the University.
York University has a policy on access to information and protection of privacy and we will protect your personal information in compliance with Ontario's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (R.S.O. 1990, c F.31). It is important to note, that if we are compelled by any government authority of competent jurisdiction within Canada to release information regarding a registrant, we must do so.
We employ SSL for your privacy in transmitting sensitive information. If
your browser is capable of working with "strong encryption" (128-bit
encryption), our servers will negotiate that with your browser. If your
browser supports standard encryption (40-bit), our servers will work with this
as well. We will not accept personal data on any page that is not SSL enabled.
