The Bookvalu website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Bookvalu pages, or register with Bookvalu site or services, a cookie helps Bookvalu to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Bookvalu website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Bookvalu features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Bookvalu services or websites you visit.

Bookvalu will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
- Bookvalu’s Users have control of the purpose for collecting data, and the duration for which the Personal Data may be kept.

Legal bases for processing (for EEA users)

If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Services.
