Read Books Online for Free
Read Entire Full Length Books & Novels Which Are Free To Read Online.
To clarify, here is the data this site collects:
- 1. Which pages are viewed, how long they are viewed for, which pages are shared on social media and which pages are bookmarked.
- 2. Bounce rates, exit rates & entrance locations of traffic.
- 3. Traffic sources (Google, Facebook, Referral Links etc), Search terms used (Where available) and devices used to access the site.
To further clarify, none of this data is connected to a person, and all of it is aggregated within Google Analytics. We couldn’t identify a person using the site even if we wanted to.
Why This Position?
There are two reasons why the decision was made to not track individual users.
- 1. Our commercial focus is not ad revenue, our focus is the distribution of books.
- 2. We don’t need or want to store your data.
That first reason might sound strange given the nature of most other “free” websites and the normal business model employed to generate revenue. But the decision was made to not operate that way, and even if we display advertisements on our site, we don’t want or need to be predatory and intrusive about it.
The second reason is linked to that, but also to the fact that it is a major security risk to store personal information, even email addresses and passwords. We may launch an account section soon, but the login will most certainly use a distributed ledger such as Civic or similar, so that your data is kept with you and you unlock your account instead of asking us to with a password.
We do not share data with anyone.
