Online Privacy Policy

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you only when you register, respond to a survey or fill out a form. When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your first name, email address and country. Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, nor given to any other company or person for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the product or service requested.

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 our 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 free ebook acount 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: 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 email correspondence from obooko: to do this, please use the obooko contact form (http://www.obooko.com/contact.php) and enter UNSUBSCRIBE in the message box. Allowing us to communicate with you via email is a condition of registration so this will also cancel your user account with obooko: you will no longer be able to download free ebooks using your current login details.

How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal data whenever you enter and submit details via our online forms or by email.

Do we use cookies?
Yes. Our membership system uses session cookies to recognise you. Our 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. Third party cookies: We also use the services of Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use our site. The cookies used by Google Analytics include anonymous, non-personal information including where a visitor has linked from, the browser they are using, the pages they visit and the screen size of their device. You will also find advertising on the site by major advertising networks including Google Adsense, which will use 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 adverts.

We do not disclose information to outside parties
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your identifiable personal information. We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our rights or the rights, property or safety of others. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for statistical purposes only.

Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website or via our email newsletters. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
