Your books and other content (such as book titles, cover art and product descriptions) must adhere to these content guidelines. We reserve the right to make judgments about whether content is appropriate and to choose not to offer it. We may also terminate your participation in the PSP program if you don’t adhere to these content guidelines.
We DO NOT accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts. Parestan will not tolerate any sort of VULGAR content. What we deem unacceptable is as what you expect but to make things even clearer, if a content/subject/act is not shown/depicted on Pakistani television it is not acceptable by Parestan ( e.g sexual acts, emphasis on the human body either graphically or written etc) .
This rule by no means is to prevent anyone from writing on social issues and other topics that result in the growth of our society.
Illegal and infringing content:
It is your responsibility to ensure that your content doesn’t violate laws or copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other rights. Just because content is freely available does not mean you are free to copy and sell it.
Public domain and other non-exclusive content:
Some types of content, such as public domain content, may be free to use by anyone, or may be licensed for use by more than one party. We will not accept content that is freely available on the web unless you are the copyright owner of that content. For example, if you received your book content from a source that allows you and others to re-distribute it, and the content is freely available on the web, we will not accept it for sale on the Parestan store. We do accept public domain content but may choose not to sell a public domain book if its content is undifferentiated or barely differentiated from one or more other books.
Poor customer experience:
We don’t accept books that provide a poor customer experience. We reserve the right to determine whether content provides a poor customer experience.
Content Quality Guidelines.
1 Identifying errors :
It is very important to search your book for errors before uploading the original file or prior to uploading a new file after fixing problems post-publication.
2 Reviewing your book:
Do a careful and through review of your book before submitting it for publishing.
3 Typing errors:
Typos are among the most common quality issues . In order to produce a high quality ebook, please ensure your book is free of typos.
4 Cover Issues:
A high quality cover image may have an impact on a reader’s decision to purchase a book.
5 Image Quality:
Having clear, readable images in your book is an important part of the reader experience. Images with text can be particularly problematic if the source quality is poor, so make sure that the text is readable. Also make sure that the images in your book are not blurry as it could be annoying for the reader and may impact their understanding of your content for images that require high levels of detail.
Formatting issues may affect the visual or layout level of a title and can include problems such as extra spacing between paragraphs or forced text justification. Formatting errors in your book may prevent readers from customizing their reading experience to their preferences, and also may include issues that cause text flow to be unintelligible or confusing.
7 Duplicate text:
This refers to any text which repeats in the book when it is not intended to repeat. Usually this is the result of a copy-paste error, and can be fixed by removing the duplicated text.
A repeated chapter that is also mislabeled
Other duplicate text issues include:
A repeated chapter
A portion of text that is repeated within a chapter or section, excluding single words
8 Missing Content:
Missing content issues occur when some intended part of the book is either mistakenly removed or includes references to a portion of the book that isn’t included in the book.
More text is missing than just a short phrase
Missing image section that the product description or the contents of the book indicate should be included
Main book content that is only accessible through external links
Product description indicates book includes CD, DVD or other ancillary content that is not accessible
Other missing content issues include:
9 Wrong Content:
Books with wrong content are always removed from sale.
Wrong content occurs when a customer receives something other than what is advertised. This is most commonly caused by uploading an incorrect file, but can sometimes also occur if updates are made to the product information or copy/paste issues make the description incorrect. The easiest way to fix it is to upload the latest version of the correct file.
10 Disappointing Content:
We do not allow content that disappoints our customers, including but not limited to:
Content that is either marketed as a subscription or redirects readers to an external source to obtain the full content
Content that is freely available on the web (unless you are the copyright owner of that content or the content is in the public domain). Content whose primary purpose is to solicit or advertise
Content that is not significantly differentiated from another book available in the Parestan Store
Content that is a non-differentiated version of another book available in the Parestan Store
Content that is too short
