 Privacy Policy
Privacy Policy

Scientific Frontline is committed to protecting your online privacy. We feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via the Internet. You can visit Scientific Frontline without revealing any personal information. However, you are required to provide an e-mail address to join our galleries and forum.

How we and our affiliates collect and use personal information

Scientific Frontline may contain links to Web sites operated by third parties. Scientific Frontline has no control over the privacy policies and practices of such third party sites, and if you have any concerns, you are urged to review the terms of those sites for more information about the policies applicable to those sites.

IP addresses

We collect and log the IP address of all visitors to Scientific Frontline. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly administer our system and gather aggregate information about how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. We will use IP address information, however, to personally identify you in order to enforce our legal rights or when required to do so by law enforcement authorities.

How we use cookies

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that some Web sites store on your computer's hard drive when you visit them. Like many other Web sites, Scientific Frontline uses cookies to provide us with information relating to the sources of our site traffic. Collecting this information, however, does not allow us to personally identify you.

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so that you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Our site requires that both cookies and JavaScript be enabled. If you reject cookies from our site, some parts of the site may not work properly for you.

Surveys

You may be asked to complete surveys when you visit Scientific Frontline. We use information from surveys to better understand the needs of our users. We never share information from surveys with third parties.

How we protect your personal information

All data that you enter on this site are encrypted with secure server software (SSL). The encryption means that your data are protected while they are being transferred over the Internet to our servers.

Once your data reach our servers, the same state-of-the art security software that guards our company's essential business data protects your data as well.

In addition to using the most secure technology available, we de-identify all data before they are used in any aggregate reporting that may be done.

What we provide to third parties

Scientific Frontline does not provide any third party access to your IP address and e-mail address.

We may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns and related site information. These data reflect site-usage patterns gathered during visits to our Web site each month, but they do not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual member unless that member has given us permission to share that information.

Note that Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to monitor statistics on our site. No personally identifiable information is collected as part of Google's process.

Children's privacy

This site is intended for adults age 18 and older. It is not intended for or designed to attract people under the age of 18. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know to be under the age of 18.

E-mail communications, newsletter and related services

Scientific Frontline provides you with the opportunity to receive communications from us or third parties. You can sign up for a free e-mail newsletter. You can unsubscribe from this newsletter at any time.

E-mail communication that you send to us via the e-mail links on our site may be shared with a Customer Service representative, employee, research expert or agent that is most able to address your inquiry. We make every effort to respond in a timely fashion once communications are received. Once we have responded to your communication, it is discarded or archived, depending on the nature of the inquiry.

The “Contact Us” functionality on our site does provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication.

Complaint process

If you have a complaint or problem, or if you believe your privacy rights have been violated, you may e-mail us by clicking the "Contact us" link at the bottom of any page. Please indicate the following reason for contacting us: I want to provide feedback about your site. Our Customer Service department will forward your complaint to the appropriate Scientific Frontline department for response or resolution. If you don't receive adequate resolution of a privacy-related problem, you may write to Scientific Frontline Legal Department at:

Changes to our Privacy policy

We will occasionally update this Privacy policy. You will see the word "updated" followed by the date at the bottom this page on the site. If the "updated" date has changed since you last visited, you're encouraged to review the policy to be informed of how this site is protecting your information. We will also inform about the update on our main RSS feed. Yet it is your responsibility to check both the Policy Privacy Statement and Terms of Service before use of this online publication.

Updated Time Stamp: 12/1/2009 at 1:01:57 AM UTC

This Privacy Policy covers the entire Scientific Frontline publication.
