FAQs:

How will my information be used? 

The information you provide to us with your subscription will only be used to tailor your subscription to you and to process your subscription payments. Your subscription preferences are stored in a password-protected Google sheet accessible only to Hurst staff. Payments are processed securely by Snipcart. You can read our privacy policy in full here.

How much will shipping cost? 

Shipping for your gratis subscription book is free of charge in the UK and Europe. For further book orders using your discount code, delivery costs outside the UK are calculated as per usual. Please be in touch if you want a delivery quote for an order of multiple books. Other ROW destinations will incur a shipping surcharge for the subscription service, which you will see before checkout. Shipping outside the UK is limited due to Covid-19. We have begun shipping to Europe and North America, but we are not shipping to other regions at present. Any subscribers in affected regions will receive the books accumulated since the beginning of their subscription once restrictions have been lifted. 

Can I purchase a subscription as a gift for someone else? 

Yes. If your subscription is a gift for somebody else, you can forward the interests form to them so they can complete it with their shipping address and book preferences.

Can I use a discount code? 

Please note that discount codes are not applicable when signing up for a Hurst subscription.

Is there someone I can contact if I have any questions? 

Yes. For questions and customer service queries, please be in touch with [email protected]
