Personal Information We Collect About You

We Collect Information As You Access And Use The Web Site

We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information related to your usage of the Web Site and how you arrived at the Web Site (“Usage Information”), which may include a visitor’s "IP Address" (discussed below) or another unique identifier for a device used to access the Internet, operating system, browser type, referring web site URL. This Usage Information allows us, among other things, to calculate the number of visitors to the Web Site, diagnose problems with the Web Site's server and operate the Web Site. Usage Information may also be used to tailor and improve the Web Site, serve you relevant content and/or advertising at the Web Site and serve you an appropriate version of a web page.

Keeping Information Secure

Your Scientific Citations account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. Protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.

Sharing Your Information

Information about the people who use Scientific Citations is an integral part of the Scientific Citations experience. Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone and that we will share your personal information only as described below.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use information you have provided through our website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.


No data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information we collect, and you do so at your own risk. Nonetheless, we have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any Information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Information. In the unfortunate event that your "personally identifiable Information" (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when we deem appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.

Access and Correction

Scientific Citations will provide website users with access to a copy of their personal information which they have provided through our site, where such users are reasonably entitled to ask for this, and they will have the ability to review and correct it, as applicable.
