Slice Bookshelf Terms of Service
Last updated: May 2012
Slice Bookshelf™ facilitates the sharing of books among Facebook friends. It is a service offered by Slice®. It is voluntary to post your Bookshelf. You may establish your Slice Bookshelf by following the prompts shown. You may close your Bookshelf any time.
All borrowing and lending of ebooks takes place within the third-party accounts used to manage such ebooks - for example, the Amazon.com® website for Kindle™ ebooks or Barnes & Noble™ website (BN.com) for Nook® ebooks. The rules for borrowing and lending Kindle ebooks are posted on their websites. It is your responsibility to be aware of the rules set forth by such third parties concerning the lending of ebooks.
By using Slice Bookshelf, you can readily organize and display your books. You have control over which of your books you will make visible to your Facebook friends, and for books where Bookshelf can facilitate borrowing and lending, you have control over which are made available for borrowing by your Facebook friends.
Slice may post messages on Facebook on your behalf, according to the permissions that you grant when you link your Facebook account to Slice Bookshelf. You may adjust these permissions in your Facebook account settings. For example, Slice may post a status update stating that you are using Slice Bookshelf, or that you are borrowing a book from another friend. You may see similar postings from your friends who have signed up for Slice Bookshelf.
Facebook friends may send a Facebook message to request to borrow a book shown in a friend's Bookshelf. It is entirely within the owner's discretion whether to grant any request.
You may also purchase a copy of certain books in a Bookshelf by clicking on a "Buy" tab or similar functionality, which will take you to a third party retailer.
Slice Bookshelf service is currently offered in a beta testing format. Slice may terminate Slice Bookshelf at any time, without prior notice. Slice may terminate an individual's Slice Bookshelf at any time, without prior notice, within Slice's sole discretion.
To use Slice Bookshelf, you must have or establish a standard Slice account. Slice reviews and organizes purchasing receipts in your email account(s) to provide you an integrated view of your purchases, including order, to shipment and tracking information.
