Warning Messages

To protect our publishers' copyrights, Books24x7 has implemented a warning system that advises users when their activity on the site could be in violation of certain terms in our Membership Agreement that pertain to downloading or storing pages for offline use.

The content on the site is licensed to Books24x7 with the understanding that all reasonable measures will be taken to prevent saving it offline unless expressly permitted.

The criteria for these warnings have been determined after careful review of usage patterns that have been associated with content downloading and offlining over the years. Some behaviors that seem legitimate to a subscriber may appear consistent with these patterns, and will trigger warnings.

This page is intended to clarify the usage patterns that trigger these warning messages.


Users will be given two warnings about problematic behavior and will be asked to acknowledge receipt of these before being able to access content again. If the problematic behavior continues, a third notice will alert the user that the account has been disabled.

Examples of Problematic Behavior
