But there is another way to transfer the file, this is to send it to your special mail in the service.
It looks like this: find the e-mail in the settings of the Kindle application, it's called "Send-to-kindle email adress" and will look like: firstname.lastname@example.org.
After sending the file, it will be added to your account automatically.

We know how important it is to ensure the safety of your personal data and your files. Therefore, immediately after the conversion, we delete the originals. The results for downloading from the web service are available only to you by link within 24 hours. We delete the conversion results for the android application in an hour. We do not use your files in any way and do not transfer your files to third parties. For analysis – we store in our database only the file name and type of conversion, without any user identification. Thank you for trusting us.
