Non-DRM eBooks FAQs
Greenleaf Publishing’s eBooks are DRM-free. That means they do not have any layers of security that would hinder a customer from consuming the content (no passwords, no restrictions on where you view it, no restrictions on printing or copying text). However, this does not mean that the usual copyright laws do not apply. As a condition of purchase, you must abide by the copyright terms as set out in our Terms & Conditions .
What devices can I use to read my eBook?
Mobile/hand-held devices: this is a fast-changing market but the majority support both PDF and ePub formats. Consult the relevant documentation.
Which format should I choose?
Some titles are available in either format, and at the same price. As a very brief guide: PDFs present a “snapshot” of the printed page. You get all the formatting, high-quality graphics and design of the original hard-copy publication. However, on smaller screens, you may need to scroll around the page to read the text. The benefit of ePub files is that they are a dedicated eBook format: they reflow to fit the window you’re viewing (like a web page), and you can resize the text as required. Both formats have the advantage of internal and external hot links in the text (e.g. cross-references and web links); but our ePub files are especially rich in this regard. As a general rule we suggest PDFs for your Mac/PC and ePub, when available, for your hand-held/mobile.
