The following are the terms and conditions for use of the Eason & Son website or any Internet site to which the Website is linked (the “Website”). This Website is for use by people who are 18 years and over only.
No contract will subsist between you and Eason & Son Ltd. for a sale to you of any product or service unless and until Eason & Son Ltd. accepts your order by e-mail confirming that it has dispatched your order. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time Eason & Son Ltd. sends the e-mail to you (whether or not you receive that e-mail).
Price of Goods
The price listed on the Website (the “Price”) for Eason Bookstore products (the “Products”) will be as stipulated at the time when you place your order on the website. We are entitled to make adjustments to the Price to take account of any increase in our supplier's prices, or the imposition of any new taxes or duties, or if due to an error or omission the Price for the Products on the Website is wrong. Products on promotion will occasionally revert to higher prices - we sometimes source out-of-stock products from third-party suppliers and have to adjust our prices accordingly.
We will endeavour to deliver the Products to you within 3 – 5 working days of your Account order within the island of Ireland, where this is practical. However, Products are subject to availability and delays may sometimes occur that are outside of our control. Any dates specified for delivery are therefore approximate only. If delivery is delayed for more than 21 days, you have the right to contact us and refuse to accept the Products. In these circumstances, we will refund any money paid by you for those Products and any delivery monies you have been charged. However, we will not be responsible for any other losses, costs, damages or charges that you may suffer if we delay in supplying or do not supply those Products. At the time of delivery you may be required to validly sign-off on the delivery of the Products, after which time the Products become your sole responsibility. For information on our returns policy, please see our Returns page.

Cookies set by Third Party Websites
We sometimes embed video content from websites such as YouTube. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Easons.com does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.
Social Networking Sharing Tools
Easons.com carries embedded ‘share’ buttons to enable users to easily share content with their friends through a number of popular social networks. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. Easons.com does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.
You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Easons.com. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting Easons.com, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site – e.g. our monthly Thank You Card newsletter. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Easons.com emails which you can do via the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the footer of every promotional email we send.
Surveys and Competitions
From time to time our site may request information from users via surveys, competitions or for a particular service (e.g. newsletter). Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested will include contact information (as supplied to the site during registration) and supplementary information on your professional interests, opinions and preferences. We will use the contact information to notify winners. We will not publish winners' details on the site. If the survey or contest has a sponsor then we may share information given by entrants with the sponsor, but only with the user's consent.
We use Realex Payments as our external payment provider for online transactions at Easons.com. We require the billing address of the credit card you use so that we can pass this to Realex Payments, who check the address against the cardholder's details for security purposes. We only store delivery details when you opt-in to save these details to your Address Book. We don't store the credit card details on our server. Realex Payments requires that you provide your credit card details to process the transaction. This is done on a secure Realex Payments server and data passing between Easons.com servers and Realex Payments are encrypted using 128bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
Our Use of Your Information
We use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customise our site's content, layout, and services. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users' needs.
We use your email address to send you newsletters or other communications that you have requested from the Site. Out of respect for our users we offer an opt-out via the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the footer of every promotional email we send.
We do aggregate personally identifiable information and disclose such information in aggregate to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you. There are some cases where we do pass on your personal details, however we only do this if you explicitly agree to this, typically by checking an opt-in checkbox where the default position will be that you do not agree to your details being passed on.
Disclosure of Your Information
We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.
By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We can (and you authorise us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, Intellectual Property Rights infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.
Website & Use

When you purchase online, you have a statutory right to return a product (other than perishable produce or a special order) up to 7 days after your order has been delivered (cooling off period). We can change or cancel an order up until it is dispatched. If the order has been dispatched, you can return the Product to us and we will organise a refund (excluding delivery cost). Any breakages or damage must be reported within 24 hours of purchase/delivery.

All descriptive matter, drawings, pictures, colours, specifications and advertising on the Website are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the Products.
If any manuals or safety instructions are provided with the Products, you agree to read and follow carefully all the terms contained therein at all times.
