Our Cookie and Privacy Policy

By using the obooko website in any way, we assume you consent to Cookies and understand the explanations in this Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?
Unfortunately, you can't eat them and they don't contain chocolate chips. They are simple bits of digital code stored temporarily or permanently in your browser to help websites like obooko create a better user experience for visitors. They have been around for a long time (first used in Internet Explorer in 1995.) If you use services like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay and other popular sites or shopping platforms, your browser will be receiving cookies. The Web would be a dreary place without the cute little critters. There is a lot of information about cookies on the Web, but you may wish to take a look at this useful article about cookies.

Obooko cookies: (First Party Cookies)
This is a cookie we send temporarily to your browser. It is generated by the obooko membership system in order to recognise you and give you access to members-only pages after you log in. Our system uses session cookies for this. These session cookies are completely harmless: they are NOT written or stored on your hard drive and DO NOT collect any information from your computer. They expire at the end of your browsing session on obooko and become inaccessible after your session has been inactive for around 20 minutes. The only cookie we will actually store in your browser is the one used if you click the 'Remember me' checkbox on the login form: without this our sytem has no way to recall your login details.

Cookies issued by other organisations (Third Party Cookies)
These cookies are issued to and stored in your browser by outside agencies, who provide services for the obooko website. They ae not issued by obooko directly. Like many busy sites, we use analytics software to collect information about how visitors use our platform. These cookies may be a mix of permanent, which remain stored in your browser until you clear them, and session cookies as explained above: they record anonymous, NON-PERSONAL information like the browser you are using and the country you are visiting from. This helps us develop and improve our website to enhance your future browsing and downloading experience. You will also find advertising on obooko, provided by various advertising networks, including Google Adsense, which necessitates the use of cookies. You can access the privacy policies of these networks via the 'AdChoices' (blue triangle) link found in an upper or lower corner of their advertisements. Alternatively, you can control cookies via the link in the next paragraph.

Controlling Cookies
You can change your cookie settings or disable them completely in your browser. Bear in mind that if you disable cookies you may not be able to use the obooko site to download free ebooks. Wjat's more, access may be limited when you next visit many of your favourite websites. Information on how to adjust cookies in your browser can be found here.

What information does obooko collect via the registration form?
Information is collected by obooko only if you register for a free account. Our registration form enables our system to record your first name, username, email address and country. This information will never be sold, exchanged, transferred, nor given to any other company or person for any reason whatsoever other than for the express purpose of delivering the obooko free ebook download experience.

What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
1. To personalize your experience on obooko: your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.
2. To improve the obooko website: we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
3. To improve customer service: your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.
4. To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
5. To send email messages: this could be regarding your obooko free ebook account or a periodic newsletter. The email address you provide for registration will be used to send messages.
6. To keep a record of book submissions to obooko: if you are an author we will retain a copy of your submission form as a record of your permission for us to distribute your work.

Note: you may unsubscribe from receiving non-transactional email correspondence from obooko: to do this, please use the 'unsubscribe' link in the message or the obooko contact form (http://www.obooko.com/contact.php) and enter UNSUBSCRIBE in the message box.
