                  We also anonymise and aggregate personal information (so that it does not identify you) and use it for purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our site, and developing new products and services.

                  We use any of the above categories of information to identify, prevent and detect fraud, against either you or against Notebook Therapy. Detecting and preventing fraud is an unfortunate, but an absolutely essential part of our service and our contracted commitment to you. In addition, legally, we are required to do this.


                  We also use Purchase history data, to protect our service and uphold our Terms of Service as part of our contracted commitment to you, as part of this we may make use of computer-system decisions to protect Notebook Therapy and our Service.

                  Marketing messages

                  If you have said we can, we’ll send you marketing messages to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products and services. 


                  How to stop marketing messages from Notebook Therapy

                  You can control the marketing communications you receive from us through the subscription management link located in all our marketing communications. 

                  You have the following options: 

                  • Emails:  You can also click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any marketing email you receive, and this will take you to the Contact Preferences section of your account so you can unsubscribe from that method of communication. 
                  • Any method of Marketing:  You can contact our Customer Care team .  Once you do this, we will update our records to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages. 

                  If you tell us you don’t want to receive marketing messages it might take a few days for all our systems to be updated, so we would ask for your patience as you might get messages from us while we process your request. 

                  Please note that opting out of marketing messages will not stop service and operational communications, such as order updates, or where you have asked for a specific ‘back in stock’ notification.
