Oh I don't know, the "scanned and proofed by" section you find in most of these books? Bear in mind, if the data is on Amazon's servers, it can be subject to legal discovery.

(Indeed, it's been tried)

What Amazon think is only a small part of the whole issue.

Quite simply, if it's possible to use the data in a certain way and the agreement doesn't exclude that, then you do have to take into account that they are reserving the right to do so. And any collection of data on someone else's servers is subject to their control and privacy standards, and the ownership of that company and their privacy standards can change without the authorisation you have granted them to use that dataset for in the first place lapsing.

"Why do you wish to know that" is a perfectly valid question.
