Here’s a growing list of all the policies for various things. If you’re into legal mumbo jumbo, you’ll love these.

Here’s the tl;dr of these:

  • We track your usage on Hardcover using cookies for:
    • Your current user session – Required to login and use the site.
    • Google Analytics – For site stats so we know how we’re doing.
    • Bugsnag – For error reporting so we know what’s broken.
    • Algolia – For search, so we can improve search.
    • Theme – To save if you select dark or light mode.
  • We don’t and won’t ever sell your personal data. Someday we might share collective stats (ex: which books are popular), but never with any personal information.
  • We do not share your email, name, reviews, ratings, or any other data with anyone. All of us working on Hardcover have our own information in there as well, and don’t trust anyone with it. In fact, only Adam (Hardcover’s founder) has access to the production database to even see the your data.
  • You own your data and can delete it at any time.
  • You own your data and it can be exported at any time.
  • If you violate the Code of Conduct, you may quickly be banned without warning.
