Update from 3M to Cloud Library Users:

Dear Cloud Library Customers,

Many of you have recently heard of the problems with Adobe Digital Editions and privacy, and many have asked us if we have similar problems with our system.  While we do use Adobe for DRM support, we never recommend that users download Adobe Digital Editions for reading 3M Cloud eBooks.  We have our own internally developed applications for PC and MAC which removes the need to have any 3rd party software installed to use our service.  Our technical team has confirmed that the kinds of data noted in the article below are not transmitted between the 3M software and Adobe.
