Adobe® Digital Editions software lets you view, manage, download, and purchase digital content, primarily eBooks, with or without digital rights management (DRM). DRM is a technology used by eBook providers to manage the copying, printing and sharing of eBooks.
The following information may be collected when an eBook with DRM is opened in Adobe Digital Editions software. If an eBook does not have any DRM associated with it, then no information is collected.
The data is sent periodically to Adobe via a secure transmission using HTTPS.
Adobe uses the information collected about the eBook you have opened in Adobe Digital Editions software to ensure it is being viewed in accordance with the type of DRM license that accompanies that eBook. The type of license is determined by the eBook provider. For more information on how each piece of data is used, please see above.
Adobe does not share any personally identifiable information. Adobe may share anonymous aggregated information with eBook providers to enable billing under the applicable pricing model.
