User names and email addresses (as well as any additional information that a user may choose to post) are publicly available on the books.co.uk site, unless a user elects to "opt-out" of such display of personal information. However, in cases where users voluntarily and publicly disclose personal information which may contain Registration Data, or otherwise post personal information in conjunction with content subject to an open source license, such personal information necessarily will be disclosed subject to the terms of the applicable license.
Subject to the foregoing, books.co.uk may conduct surveys of other studies of its customer base and usage for marketing and planning purposes. With respect to information collected from such surveys or studies, and in the event that responses are to be publicly disclosed, users will be notified at the time they take the survey and books.co.uk will disclose only aggregate information regarding its users and not personal information identifying any specific individual. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in cases where surveys allow users to submit written comments, and where books.co.uk advises users of the possibility of such disclosure at the time they take the survey, books.co.uk reserves the right to disclose text information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed.
Users may "opt-in" to receive site notifications, newsletters or other information via email. Users may remove themselves from such services at their discretion. Any email sent to an "opt-in" list will include directions for how a user may remove him or herself from the list, or a URL where the user may find such directions.
In order to implement or enforce the Terms of Service of the relevant books.co.uk site, books.co.uk may use personal information to contact users on an individual basis.
In some cases, users' personal information may be publicly available through a user's profile display. In cases where site profiles allow users to display optional information publicly, such entry and display is at the user's discretion and may be changed at any time by the user.
In some cases, users may have the opportunity to use an books.co.uk service to send electronic mail to another user or email list. In such cases, a user's valid email address and real name will be included with such messages. In order to prevent abuse, users may not opt-out of such a display, but may choose to refrain from using said Service to transmit an email message.
In cases where users voluntarily and publicly disclose personal information which may contain Registration Data or otherwise post personal information in conjunction with content subject to an open source license, such personal information necessarily will be disclosed subject to the terms of the applicable license.

At no time, unless such disclosure is required by law or a user specifically authorizes such disclosure, will books.co.uk disclose individual user personal information that is not publicly available to unrelated third parties.
