Policies & Privacy


We ship via USPS Priority Mail and USPS Media Mail.

Foreign Orders:

Since shipping costs for foreign orders have skyrocketed, we do not charge a “handling” fee, but only the cost of airfreight in order to keep costs down, and the rates will be accordingly.

ADDED SECURITY: We have added SiteLock to our website. Sitelock provides daily Malware scanning and network scanning.

How does SiteLock protect a website? SiteLock malware scanning technology reviews all of the files and applications on our website and compares them against industry standards, as well as our proprietary sources, to detect any malware. If an incident is detected, contact is made with the web owner to have the malware removed.

Secure Order Form:

Due to the increased number of sophisticated methods of stealing credit card information, we have decided to use PAYPAL as our only payment method (PayPal is PCI compliant). You can be sure with Paypal that your information is secure. 

Whether buying, selling, or transferring money, you get an extra layer of security using PayPal. That’s because all PayPal’s financial information is securely stored and encrypted on Paypal’s servers, so you do not need to share your financial information with the person you are buying from.

Also, transactions are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by a dedicated team of security specialists. PayPal’s mission is to identify suspicious activity and help protect you from fraudulent transactions.

If you notice an unauthorized charge on your account, report it immediately. Paypal will secure your account and launch an investigation to determine the origin of the charge. If PayPal discovers that someone has used your PayPal account without your permission, or if money was incorrectly taken from your account, PayPal will cover you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorized transaction.

Return Policy:

Our Return Policy only applies to books damaged in transit. All sales are final.
