This website is operated by Science Business Publishing Ltd.

Science Business Publishing Ltd complies with data protection legislation such as the Data Protection Act 1998. This regulates the processing of personal data relating to you and grants you various rights in respect of your personal data.

Collection and retention of your personal information

You do not have to give us any personal information in order to use this website. However, if you wish to take advantage of some of the more special, personalised services that we offer, you will need to provide us with certain information about yourself.

For example, if you wish to subscribe to our news service we will collect some or all of the following personal data from you: name, address, e-mail, daytime telephone number, job title, company/employer and your bank details in order to process payment.

How we use your information and with whom we share your information

We will use your personal information to manage your registration and allow you to benefit from the services on our website.

We may employ the services of a third party to help us in certain areas, such as website hosting. In some cases the third party may receive your information. However, at all times, we will control and be responsible for the use of your information.

We may use aggregated information for the purposes of tracking usage of the website and in order to help up improve our website and for research and analysis purposes. We may pass this information to third parties. The aggregate information and statistics will not, however, include details that can be used to identify you.

Except as set out in this statement, we do not share, sell or transfer your information to anyone else.

Marketing

We would like to keep you up to date, by email, with details of our services, or those of carefully selected third parties, using the information that you have supplied, but only with your permission.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of your computer's hard drive. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways:

  • To help us recognise you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to our website and to allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests or to avoid showing you the same adverts repeatedly.
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

Two types of cookies may be used on this website, session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

Third Party Advertising

We may use a third party to serve advertisements on our site. Cookies may be associated with these advertisements to enable the advertiser to track the number of anonymous users responding to the campaign. We do not have access to or control of cookies placed by third parties.

Disabling/Enabling Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled.

Links

Our site contains links to other websites over which we have no control. We are not responsible for privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from this site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other web sites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.

Security

We have implemented reasonable technical and organisational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

Sale of the Business

In the event that our business is sold or integrated with another business, your details may be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchaser's advisers and may be passed to the new owners of the business.

Your right to access information

You are entitled to see the information held about you. If you wish to do this, please contact us at info@sciencebusiness.net. Please note that in certain circumstances we may withhold access to your information where we have the right to do so under current data protection legislation.

Updating your information

You may review, correct, update or change your personal information at any time by contacting us at info@sciencebusiness.net.

Changes to this privacy policy

If our privacy policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we will share it with other parties.
