Your privacy is important to us. At The Audiobook Review, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We will never request personal information outside of what is necessary to provide this website service.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is The Audiobook Review’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Audiobook Review collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Audiobook Review’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, The Audiobook Review may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Audiobook Review also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments and/or reviews. The Audiobook Review only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Audiobook Review’s website choose to interact with our site in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Audiobook Review gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, depending on user preferences, users may be asked to provide a name and email address when submitting a review. In each case, The Audiobook Review collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Audiobook Review. The Audiobook Review does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Audiobook Review may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Audiobook Review may monitor the most popular pages or reviews on the site. The Audiobook Review may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Audiobook Review does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Audiobook Review discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its contributors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Audiobook Review’s behalf or to provide services available at The Audiobook Review’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those contributors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Audiobook Review’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Audiobook Review will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. If you are a registered user of The Audiobook Review website and have supplied your email address, The Audiobook Review may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Audiobook Review and our content. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish its content in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Audiobook Review takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Audiobook Review uses cookies to help The Audiobook Review identify and track visitors, their usage of The Audiobook Review website, and their website access preferences. The Audiobook Review visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The Audiobook Review’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of The Audiobook Review’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by The Audiobook Review and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments & Reviews

Comments and other content submitted to our comment services are subject to their terms and conditions. Inflammatory, abusive, or vulgar comments and/or reviews will be removed at the administrator’s discretion. It is important to note the content within any comment is considered public, and therefore not private. Trolling or other undesirable types of interaction will not be tolerated. In short, we believe in the maxim “Don’t be a Jerk”. If, at our discretion and in our opinion, we believe someone is being a jerk, we reserve the right to restrict or remove their access from our site.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The Audiobook Review may change its Privacy Policy from time to time and in The Audiobook Review’s sole discretion. The Audiobook Review encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Book Submission Policy

Submitting your book(s) for inclusion on our site does not guarantee your book will be reviewed. We have no control over which books our users choose to listen to and post reviews for. Reviews are based solely on the individual reviewer’s personal opinion and interpretation and as a result of listening to your audiobook. We can not guarantee whether it will be positive or negative. Reviews will be published regardless of if it is a positive or negative review; no matter what they will be honest.

We will not remove reviews simply because you disagree with the reviewer’s opinion or believe they misunderstood your work.

If you try to claim a code that Audible reports as invalid, there is nothing we can do about that. Feel free to let us know though, and if someone is abusing the system, we can take steps to stop them.
