What is Lulu?

edited February 2018 in Self-Publishing Overview

Lulu is a place where people of all ages, backgrounds, experience, and professions can publish, sell, or buy creative content such as novels, memoirs, poetry, cookbooks, technical manuals, articles, photography books, children’s books, calendars, and a host of other content that defies easy categorization. We help people distribute information and art spanning a wide range of subject matter while providing a safe, friendly, respectful, and serious site for all content creators. Since our community serves a broad range of ages, we do not encourage content that could make a majority of our users uncomfortable.

Lulu respects the effort that goes into creating your remarkable work and we are committed to protecting copyrights as well as your right to privacy. As a member of our community, you may not publish or post content that you do not own or have permission to publish. We take allegations of copyright and privacy violations very seriously. To that end, if you believe that material offered for sale on our site violates your copyright or right to privacy, you are encouraged to notify Lulu via the “Report This Item” button associated with each piece of content. If a user infringes copyrights or other intellectual property or privacy rights, Lulu may, in its discretion, terminate use or deny access to its website. If terminated for those reasons, Lulu has no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Lulu or owed to the user.

The Lulu Membership Agreement describes, in the best legal jargon, your rights as a Lulu community member, whether you are a creator or buyer of content. It also lists our rights and responsibilities as the Lulu.com site owner, the information we collect about users and how it is stored, our obligations to accurately collect and pay revenues earned by content owners, our content retention guidelines, your ownership and rights to retire works published using Lulu tools and services, and our liabilities for services provided by Lulu and our partners.

We encourage you to read the full Lulu Membership Agreement, which defines the terms and conditions for participation as a member of Lulu’s community, including participation in forums and groups, purchasing goods and services, and publishing your works for sale or distribution to others. Please do not hesitate to contact support if you have any questions about the terms of this agreement.

Please Note:

Lulu is not a publisher, but instead provides users with tools to publish their own content.

Because Lulu is not a publisher, we do not review work published through our site.

We do expect all content to be consistent with our Member Agreement and reserve the right to remove content we deem to be illegal or inappropriate.
