We collect and use Personally Data and other information from our customers in the following ways:

Data Processing
Personal data (as defined in the law or laws giving effect to the EU Data Protection Directive) is used to service and fulfil your account and enable your use of the Reed services. In addition, Reed may also use your Personal Data to provide you with information about relevant goods and services that we think will be of interest to you.

As part of this, we will provide and export Personal Data about you to other members of our company group including Reed Elsevier Inc. in the United States of America. Subject to the foregoing, we will protect your Personal Data with appropriate levels of security and will comply with the applicable data protection law.

You undertake that you have permission of any Data Subject in respect of any Personal Data you send to us.

Financial Details
You may choose to provide valid credit or debit card information to make a purchase via our website(s). This includes your credit or debit card number, card holder name, start date, expiry date, issue number, Card Verification Number.

Payment card information supplied online is managed by Reed Elsevier in one of two ways:

  • Unprocessed: Reed does not handle nor process your payment card details. Instead, Reed embeds what is commonly known in the industry as a "Hosted Order Page". The Hosted Order Page is provided by CyberSource: a global payment service provider hosted in the USA. When you enter your payment card information on the embedded CyberSource Hosted Order Page, Reed does not see nor use your payment card details, instead, the payment information is being lodged with CyberSource where it is validated and the transaction is made with Reed's bank. Reed obtains an acknowledgement from CyberSource that the payment was made.
  • Processed: Reed also hosts a service in the USA based on Oracle's ATG web commerce platform. In this case Reed tokenises your payment information - which is retained by Reed for the purposes of personalising and facilitating future transactions with Reed. When you authorise a purchase, your stored card information is then handed to CyberSource to make a payment transaction.

Any transactional information provided by you will be used by us to process a transaction and may be used to process future transactions at your request. Your credit or debit card information will be retained in order to facilitate and personalise future transactions with you. For those purposes, Reed Elsevier will also process your order details.

We may use the contact details provided by you (such as your name, job title, telephone and fax number and your e-mail and postal addresses) to keep you informed about relevant new goods and services that we think will be of interest to you, either by post, phone or e-mail.

If a match is found in the online preliminary screening, you may be invited to complete an online assessment that measures your experiences and accomplishments as well as your attitudes and preferences on various work-related subjects.

The profile created from this assessment will be stored in the Reed Elsevier candidate database, which is hosted in the United States of America. You will be able to access, correct, update, modify and delete your PII on the Reed Elsevier candidate database. You may withdraw from active candidacy for employment by Reed Elsevier at any time by advising us at careerqueries@reedelsevier.com. Unless deleted by you, Reed Elsevier will retain your PII for up to two years from the date it is last actively used, as required by applicable laws.

For these purposes Reed Elsevier may share your candidate record and PII with other Reed Elsevier companies and employees located in our offices around the world.
