Katelyn,
In many cases the site itself will tell you, somewhere, how their system works... whether their books are stored on your PC/device or their site, what formats they use, and often, what restrictions are on them. They may not tell you directly that they apply DRM, but they may explain that you are not allowed to print, copy, or transfer your book to another device (usually a sign that they do use DRM).

Look for an FAQ page, or a page that explains their purchase process and your agreement as a buyer. If they have a Contact Us e-mail, you can always ask them directly.

If you can't find that info, or the site does not volunteer it, you can always post a question here, or for that matter any forum that is familiar with them (try a Google search for the site, as in "questions about SiteX.com", and see if any threads about SiteX come up). You can also ask if anyone knows of software that will open a particular format and convert or de-DRM it... there are a lot of them out there.
