Terms of use

Last updated: Sept 27, 2020

Welcome to BookRiser.com which provide website services to you when you visit the www.bookriser.com and BookRiser services are subject to the following terms or conditions, therefore you agree to the terms of use:

you may post reviews, comments, photos and other contents; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, offensive, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of contents. BookRiser reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content but does not regularly review posted content.

BookRiser respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please contact our customer support to remedy it by either suspending the account totally – or even revoke – upon confirmation as well as other remedial mechanisms.

BookRiser attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, BookRiser does not warrant that book descriptions or other content of any BookRiser Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

The BookRiser services and all information, content, materials, and other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the BookRiser services are provided by BookRiser on an “as is” and “as available” basis unless otherwise specified in writing. BookRiser makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the operation of the BookRiser services, or the information, content, materials or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the BookRiser services unless otherwise specified in writing. You expressly agree that your use of the BookRiser services is at your sole risk.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any BookRiser Services – due to selling, buying or distributing – will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Ethiopian civil law and other applicable laws apply to this agreement on arbitration as well as will govern the conditions in these terms of use. And also, agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action at our (BookRiser) national registered arbitrators. The list of BookRiser registered national arbitrators are available at the end of these terms of use section.

Generally, it is our policy to respond to any copyright breach notices and take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws. If your copyrighted material has been posted on bookriser.com or if links to your copyrighted material are returned through our search then communicate with us through our hotline or email as soon as possible to come up with solution between you and your suspected infringer through various mechanisms including arbitrations as detailed above. However, in any case we recommend you to apply DRM (digital right management) lock to your eBooks and Audio books –unless you would like to avail it freely. This is because the DRM locking helps in order to protect your books from copyright breach attempts as well as improve the sales.

In any case your safety should come first and we recommend every care have to be exercised whether you are a seller or buy. For that reason we recommend some ways to do to avoid fraudulent identity/individual: Beware about Spam messages

Interact in a legal way and safe place – such as public places – while delivering/receiving or other business deals

It’s better to use the contact you found on BookRiser

Properly check the book you are looking for through reviews, ratings and another way to check if it is up to your desire

Check everything before making payments and purchases

Compare prices and inspect if it’s too good to be true

Avoid unknown payment methods and rather prefer to use the safe – ways of making payment

Avoid seller trying to prove authenticity without any credibility to present and trying to avoid traceability or if the seller is not willing to answer relevant questions
