  • Content standards and management. Your eBooks, which includes all assets that make up an eBook "package", such as Cover Image, graphics, text, etc. must conform to Our content standards. At Our judgement, We reserve the right to request and/or make modifications to Your eBooks or to remove them entirely from Our systems and any associated distribution channels without notice. We may also cancel Your account for violating these standards. We will notify You if any of Your eBooks have been rejected and provide information to You by way of Your registered Email address to help You rectify any issues that preclude the publication of Your eBook. Here are Our content standards:

    Copyright and other infringement. You are responsible for ensuring that Your content doesn't violate laws or copyright, trademark, non-disclosure agreements, or other rights. That You don't pirate or plagiarize other people's work.

    Offensive content. Offensive content is defined as content that is hateful, discriminatory, morally questionable, and the like. Such content is not acceptable for publication.

    Public domain and other non-exclusive content. Content that is freely available online is not acceptable for publication under Your name unless You are the copyright holder or are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright holder. Public domain content is only acceptable for publication if it is largely differentiated from books using the same content.

    Poor customer experience. At Our discretion, eBooks that provide the customer with a poor experience are not acceptable for publication. A poor customer experience is defined as eBooks that are poorly formatted, ones that have misleading titles, those that lack a Cover Image, ones that have been machine translated, and the like. In addition, eBooks written primarily for the purpose of marketing products and services are also not acceptable for publication, particularly those that have direct links to marketing pages, or links to other parts of the book for purchase elsewhere. Further, books advertising a catalog of other books are also not acceptable for publication.

    If You discover that You do not meet these standards or want to withdraw Your content for any other reason, You must remove Your eBooks by unpublishing them via Your Publisher's Portal. Your eBooks will then be removed from all sales channels shortly thereafter. Wundr and its Partners will make every effort to remove Your eBooks without delay after they have been unpublished, usually within five business days thereafter. But the amount of time upon which Your eBooks remain in Our Partners' sales channels after You unpublish them is dependent upon Our Partners and beyond the control of Wundr. You also accept that Wundr and its Partners may make changes and correct errors that it finds in Your content before or after publication.

  • eBook appearance. You accept that Your eBooks may look different depending on the platform and/or device that they are deployed on. Wundr makes no warranties or claims as to the accuracy of how Your eBooks will look in Playwrite or other such software in relation to how it will look after it has been reformatted for deployment on different reading systems.
