Our web server automatically recognizes the domain name of each visitor to our web pages (where possible), but not the e-mail address. It also records user-specific information about what pages visitors access and information volunteered by them, as when subscribing to receive e-mail announcements of the new books. The server log information we collect is used for internal review only--to assist us in improving the design and content of our web site.

E-mail addresses of subscribers to our e-mail announcement service are strictly confidential and are not sold, rented, or made available to any outside source. They are only used to update subscribers of new publications in the subject areas they have specified. Subscribers may cancel this service at any time by e-mailing

We use cookies through Google Analytic's to analyse our web traffic. For information on the use of Google Analytics, see: To opt-out, see: For further reading, see:

In the event a customer orders a book directly from Princeton (c/o Ingram Publisher Services dba Perseus Distribution), their name and shipping address (only) will be added to our bookbuyer database which is maintained by the American List Counsel and Market Data Retrieval. Once added to our bookbuyer database, customer names and shipping addresses are made available for rental. E-mail addresses are not included in our bookbuyer database, nor are they rented or sold.

In addition, our shopping cart service gives customers the option of saving address and/or credit card information on our server for future reuse so it will not have to be re-entered the next time they place an order. We do not see this information unless an order is submitted and the information is kept strictly confidential. The shopper's name and credit card information are automatically purged from the system after one year.
