On Tuesday morning, OverDrive became aware of the story regarding Adobe collecting user information via the use of their desktop reading software, Adobe Digital Editions. Adobe has since released a response, which can be read in full here, explaining both the purpose of this data collection and its usage.
We respect and uphold the privacy of users who engage with OverDrive's services and library websites hosted by OverDrive. It is our understanding that the reported issue involves Adobe Digital Editions 4, which is not used as part of the OverDrive app.
We are actively monitoring the situation, and will continue to update our partners and users as more information becomes available.
