Possible Data Protection issue with Adobe Digital Editions v.4


Possible Data Protection issue with Adobe Digital Editions v4.

We would like to advise our users of the following issue which we have recently been made aware of regarding access to EBL content. This specifically involves the method of downloading content to various devices using the Adobe Digital Editions v4 software, details via the following link….
EBL have confirmed to us that they fully understand how important data privacy is to libraries and that they respect and value the privacy of its users.
EBL are also aware of the recent privacy concerns around Adobe Digital Editions 4.0 and have been in contact with Adobe. They are looking into the situation further so they can provide guidance on how best to proceed when downloading EBL and ebrary ebooks.

For both EBL and ebrary, users have the option of using the Bluefire reader, which does not have the same privacy concerns.
