You have chosen for us not to include affiliate tracking in links to book sellers.

Privacy Policy

The privacy of your data — and it is your data, not ours! — is a big deal to us. In this policy, we lay out: what data we collect and why; how your data is handled. We promise we never sell your data: never have, never will.

This policy applies to Ethical Book Search, which is owned by Monkey's Thumb Ltd.

What we collect and why

Our guiding principle is to collect only what we need. Here’s what that means in practice:


We use Plausible Analytics to track overall trends in the usage of our website. Plausible Analytics collects only aggregated information, which does not allow us to identify any visitor to our website. For more information, please visit the Plausible Analytics Data Policy.


We use persistent first-party cookies to store your filtering preferences for our book pages.

Affiliate links

Many of the links to book sellers on this site are affiliate links which means that we will earn a small commission if you follow one of them and then buy a book from that book seller.

If you want to avoid being tracked you can still use Ethical Book Search, just switch affiliate links off.


Have any questions, comments, or concerns about this privacy policy, your data, or your rights with respect to your information? Please get in touch by emailing us at [email protected] or writing to us at Monkey's Thumb Ltd. 99 Pembroke Road, London, N10 2JE, UK, and we’ll be happy to answer them!
