What Happens to the Information You Give Us?
We operate under the following strict privacy policy. Payments for memberships are automatically processed by PayPal and we do not have access to your credit card details.

Personally identifiable information provided by subscribers / members (name, email or home address, etc.) is never disclosed to any individual or business. You can choose not to provide certain information. If you do however, you may not be able to take advantage of many of our features.

Cookies
Each time a subscriber logs into this site, we store a temporary ‘cookie’ in the browser files of that subscriber’s computer.

Our Member Only Private Forum
Please note: We have temporarily removed our forum and cannot provide information on when it will be re-instated.

It is important to note that any information you decide to disclose in the message board areas can be read by all other members. As a result, it is advisable that you do not disclose your private details.

Business Transfers
eBooks International continues to grow at a rapid pace. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy websites as well as subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). In the unlikely event that eBooks International or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of eBooks International and Others
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of eBooks International, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.
