Information we collect from visitors
Visitors to each of our Web sites can access the Web site's home page, and browse some areas of the site, without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We may track information provided to us by your browser, including the Web site you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our Web server, such as your IP address and domain name. SciVendor may use Web server and browser information to individually customize its offerings and presenting information if you submit your personal information. On some of our Web pages, you must register to access portions of the site.

Information we collect when you register
Visitors registering on our Web sites are asked to provide identifying information, such as name, education, and contact information. On the registration screen, we clearly label which information is required for registration, and which information is optional and may be given at your discretion.

Contacting us provides an online inquiry submission located on the Contact Us page so that you may submit your inquiries online with any questions or comments you may have. In addition, you can e-mail us directly at with your attachments. SciVendor reads all messages received and makes efforts to respond promptly. In addition to replying to your comment or inquiry, we may also file your e-mail for future reference or discard the information.

Information from outside sources
We may also collect information about professionals who register on our Web sites from other sources in order to verify their education, qualification and identity. In some cases, we ask customers for information after they register. Where necessary (e.g., to process an order for a purchase), our Web sites may contact financial or credit organizations to confirm customer credit card information.

Other information
We also collect information that you voluntarily provide to us through responses to surveys, search functions, questionnaires, feedback, etc.

Aggregate data
We gather aggregate data about visitors to our Web sites for product and service development and improvement activities. We may also use it for market analysis. We may provide information from our Web sites in aggregate form, with identifying information removed, to third parties.

Cookies and web beacons
Our Web sites may use passive tracking technologies for site maintenance and development, including the use of "cookies" and "Web beacons" to identify the number of visitors accessing a Web site and the specific areas of a Web site accessed by those visitors. These technologies also provide additional functionality to the Web sites and help us analyze Web site usage more accurately.

Marketing and SciVendor-user communication
We may target our marketing depending on information we have about you. For example, a user we know is a consultant may receive information on services that an agent user will not see. We may send information to you that we believe will benefit you, including information about any SciVendor services and products.

When we share information with third parties working on behalf of SciVendor, we use our best efforts to assure that they agree in writing to abide by SciVendor privacy policies. In case, we discover that a third party working on behalf of SciVendor inappropriately disclosed personal information about any of our visitors, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.

Other than as described above, SciVendor will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without your consent.

General policies
We have implemented security technology and policies, rules, and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.

SciVendor uses security methods to determine the identity of each registered user, so that appropriate rights and restrictions can be enforced for that user. SciVendor uses both passwords and usernames to authenticate (i.e., reliable verification of user identity) users. Users are responsible for maintaining their own passwords.

Links to other web sites
Our Web sites may provide links to other Web sites as a service to you, and you may or may not be notified when you are leaving our Web sites. The third-party Web sites are operated by companies that are outside of our control, and your activities at those Web sites will be governed by the policies and privacy roles of those third parties. We encourage you to review the policies and privacy practices of those third parties before disclosing any of your personal information, as we are not responsible for their policies and privacy practices.

Third parties
In addition to aggregate information (discussed above), we may share some kinds of information with third parties as described below.

  1. Companies and people who work for us: Because we are in a collaborative science and technology network business, we contract with other companies and/or individuals to help us provide services. For example, we may host some of our Web sites on another company's computers, hire technical consultants to maintain our Web-based sites, or work with companies to analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer services. In addition, if you are a professional, we may validate your education and proficiency status and other information against available databases. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information we maintain about our users. Other companies may collect information on our behalf through their sites. This occasionally incorporates the use of frames on the site that will not show the URL you are visiting in the browser address window. We require such companies to comply with the terms of our privacy policies, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us. We use our best efforts to limit other companies’ use of personally identifiable and sensitive information.
  2. Promotional and informational offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of customers. To accomplish this, we may also use third parties working on behalf of SciVendor. We provide a variety of mechanisms for you to tell us you do not want to receive such promotional - informational offers. You can elect not to receive promotional or informational material from us by following the instructions to opt-out as mentioned or included in each of our programs we send to you.
  3. Business transfers: If we transfer a business unit (such as a subsidiary) or an asset (such as a Web site) to another company, we will require it to honor the terms of this Privacy Policy.
  4. Legal requirements: We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law. We may release personal information if, in our judgment after review by an attorney, the release is compelled by law or regulation, or if the release may be necessary to prevent the death or serious injury of an individual.

Information of Children
Our Web sites are not intended or designed to be used by children under the age of 13, and we do not believe that our Web sites are attractive to children. Therefore, we do not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children (we define "children" as minors younger than 13) on SciVendor Web sites. We do not knowingly allow children to order our products, communicate with us, or use any of our online services. If you are a parent and become aware that your child has provided us with information, please contact us, and we will work with you to address this issue. Unless otherwise posted, in order to participate in SciVendor collaboration activities, you should be at least 18 years old.
