Privacy Policy

Privacy Overview

Your privacy and the protection of your data, especially the data of the children and students who use our platform, are of utmost importance to us at Books Giant. We adhere to the standards of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and respect your privacy rights.

 

We are GDPR compliant

We are GDPR compliant and have implemented policies and processes to meet the requirements of the GDPR, ensuring that data processing is lawful, fair, and transparent.

 

What is GDPR?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation): This is a European Union regulation that imposes strict data privacy and protection standards for individuals within the EU and European Economic Area (EEA). GDPR provides individuals with greater control over their personal data and requires organizations to ensure that the data they collect is processed securely and lawfully.

 

Teachers maintain full authority over accessibility.

A student’s books remain strictly confidential by default. The decision to share any piece of student work beyond the initial private sphere rests exclusively with the teacher, who acts as the gatekeeper for wider distribution and visibility.

 

Data Storage

All data is securely housed within Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, which provides robust and comprehensive security measures to ensure the highest level of data protection.

Content Ownership

The books you create are your property, and you are free  to download them whenever you wish.
