As a reader, Data Privacy is extremely important to me.
What you read says a lot about you. That's why your Libreture library is completely private by default, keeping your details, and all your book and reading activity hidden.
Individual book privacy settings
Even if you choose to make your library public, you can still make individual books private. These books never appear as public, regardless of your library-wide setting.
Keep your identity private too (if you want)
You don't need to provide your real name when joining Libreture. An avatar is also optional and, if added, is only stored on Libreture. All your details are stored in the UK.
Only book information is shared
Your actual book files are never shared, only information about your books, and only if you make your library public.
Change your library privacy settings to suit
You can change your library's visibility at any time. Just visit your library and select Make my library public. You can make it private again just as easily, by selecting Make my library private.
Keep your secret books ... private
To exclude individual books from displaying publicly, regardless of your library's overall setting, select Make Private on an individual book page.
Private means properly private
Private libraries and private books are only visible to you - never to other users or the public, including search engines.
Do not feel obliged to keep your library public
Libreture is funded by users' storage subscriptions, so it makes no difference to Libreture's revenue whether you make your library private or not. Libreture's business model is specifically designed around not selling data or advertising space.
