Hi

A little bit OT. Sorry.
Does Amazon share customer data with publisher and book author? For example Google shares customer data with App developers. Apple doesn't. How about Amazon?

Nothing to do with Oracle. Topic locked.

Right, but - Community Hangout forum is meant to contain discussions not strictly related to Oracle. Not that I'm particularly interested in this subject, I just think that there's nothing wrong in this question.

Sorry,I moved the topic to "Community Hangout" after John has posted his message for this reason but didn't unlock it.

No problem with it here - unlocked. It was originally in Training and Certification.

As for an answer:
@OP, you could ask Amazon. Or read their terms and conditions.

Does Amazon share customer data with publisher and book author?


I am both Publisher and Author with Amazon. I can tell you without reservation that the answer is no. In particular, I had one person who had submitted feedback on one of my books via a Kindle notes feature. He thought they were getting to me and eventually emailed me about it. I contacted Amazon about gaining access to these notes in case some other readers had done the same. I was informed that no information about customers is ever passed on to the author/publisher.
