In general, under U.S. federal law, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable, Half Price Books will pay the entire amount for you, up to the full $50, so long as (1) you have notified your credit card company in accordance with their reporting procedures; (2) the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted from no cause of your own; and (3) the loss resulted from purchases made at HPB.com while using our servers.
We guarantee that shopping with HPB.com is safe. We take a number of steps to help ensure the security of your account and maintain the safety of your credit card and personal information when shopping here. If unauthorized or fraudulent charges are ever made, you will not have to pay for them. We promise. For details about our fraud guarantee, please keep reading below.
To ensure your information is safely guarded, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. When giving your credit card number, SSL encrypts all personal information, including your card number, name, and address.
There are also some things you can do to protect your account.
Choose your password carefully. And don't use the same password for multiple accounts online. For more on managing your account password, check our Help Center.
You should never provide payment information directly to a third-party seller; your order will be processed through HPB.com, and we will disburse the funds to them. When contacting HPB via email or through any web-based froms, do not include your credit card number or any other financial information, as the email will not be encrypted and is, therefore, not secure.
A spoof (or fake) email is simply an email that appears to be from a legitimate organization, such as Half Price Books, but isn't. These emails will ask you to log in to your account and update your details using a link they've provided. They may even look authentic. But what may have happened is that you've provided your account details to a thief or scammer. All emails we send to our subscribers are delivered through an authorized third party working on behalf of Half Price Books. Sometimes these email communications include links to offers, such as coupons or giveaways. These links may appear as a URL other than HPB.com or halfpricebooks.com, but will quickly redirect you to the appropriate page on HPB.com or other web domains owned by Half Price Books.
