Calibre privacy policy

What data are collected by Calibre? I know that a unique ID is assigned to every calibre installation. What is the privacy policy?

I don't know that there is an actual privacy policy.

The info collected by Calibre can be seen here...

The first paragraph on the page you linked to says it all.

Quote:
Usage statistics are collected whenever a user starts calibre. Every calibre installation has a unique ID, this ID remains unchanged by upgrades and even an uninstall/re-install. This ID is used to collect usage statistics. Only this ID is stored, no other identifying information is collected.
