You agree that we may also collect information about your usage of our website as well as information about you from e-mails or letters you send to us.
Use of your information
Your information will enable us to provide you with access to all parts of our site and to supply the goods you have requested.

Disclosure of your information
Participation by children – general
We encourage parents, guardians and teachers to spend more time online with children and to participate in the activities offered on this site. If your child is younger than 13, we may ask you to play an active role in safeguarding his or her privacy (and supervising his or her activities) when using the site.
We do not ask children to disclose any more information than is reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in an activity on our website and to improve the website.
Participation by children – need for parental consent
If children send us their details by email or via the pop-up box, we’ll keep their details so we’ll know where to send them news and updates about Mark Robson’s books. However, we will not send them any information if they tick the boxes to let us know that they don’t wish to receive this information. If a child is under 13 years old, we won’t send news or updates unless a parent/guardian has given his or her consent. In any case, we won’t pass child’s details to third parties.
Parental consent to further contact is exempted where Information has been submitted in accordance where the rules of a competition or promotion require parental consent as a condition of participation. In that case we will hold such Information only for purposes of administering the competition or promotion. We will not, and may not, require children give us more Information than is reasonably necessary to take part in any such competition or promotion. The Information will be immediately removed from our records once the administration for the competition or promotion is completed.
