In no event shall My Book Cave be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or exemplary damages or lost profits, even if MBC has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

SO WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? LAYMAN’S (CASUAL) VERSION OF USER AGREEMENT
If you use this site, you agree to our Agreement in its entirety. My Book Cave has invested a ton of time and money into this site and you agree not to steal any coding or to copy the idea. Or to tell your son or brother-in-law’s sister to do it. It’s against the law.
We will do everything we can to get readers plenty of the right books and authors plenty of readers, but we can’t guarantee a certain amount or that there will be no technical or user errors.
We have a rigorous approval process to accept and rate books. Authors who choose wrong ratings will be banned from future promotions.
We do collect your information so we can schedule promotions or send you book deals, but we don’t sell it anywhere, because that would be rude and unprofessional. Oh, and we aren’t liable for any claim you make about losing money from using this site because we do not guarantee any amount of downloads or deals.
Welcome to My Book Cave!
