Privacy Policy

Your privacy and the security of your personal information are of utmost important to us. This Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") of FreeTextbooks, Inc. ("FreeTextbooks") is designed to let you know what information we gather when you visit the FreeTextbooks web site (the "Site"), how we use that information, and how that information is protected.

What We Collect

FreeTextbooks collects personally identifying information only with your specific knowledge and consent. For instance, when you buy or sell textbooks, you are asked to provide information for account establishment such as your name, address, and e-mail address.

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.


FreeTextbooks uses session cookies only. A session cookie is a line of text that is stored temporarily in your computer's memory. Because a session cookie is never saved, it is erased from the memory of your computer as soon as you close your browser. Certain applications on our Site require session cookies to function correctly, e.g. the shopping cart and buyback quotes. If you have session cookies disabled, you may not be able to use these applications.

Log Files

When you visit our Site we automatically receive information about your computer, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the web site that referred you, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. Your IP address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university.

This information does not identify you personally, but rather identifies a visit to our Site. We use this information for the purposes of system administration, to assess the traffic to our Site, and to maintain and improve our Site. We do not attribute IP addresses to personally identifiable information and such IP addresses are not shared with outside parties except when required by law.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses persistent cookies to help analyze how users navigate our Site. Google Analytics uses these cookies to read information (including IP addresses) for the sole purpose of aggregating web site statistics, such as number of page views, the number of unique visitors, time spent on our Site, when visitors browse, and common entry and exit points into and from the Site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We do not share any personally identifiable information that you provide to us with Google. Google is contractually restricted from using information it receives from our Site other than to assist us.

Data Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
