Like most website operators, Scicus International collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Scicus International’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Scicus International’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Scicus International may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Scicus International also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Scicus International only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Scicus International’s websites choose to interact with Scicus International in ways that require Scicus International to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Scicus International gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Scicus International – by product information or RFQs and are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the technical information required to process those transactions. In each case, Scicus International collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Scicus International. Scicus International does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Scicus International may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Scicus International may monitor the most popular blogs on or use spam screen to help identify spam. However, Scicus International does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Scicus International discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Scicus International’s behalf or to provide services available at Scicus International’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Scicus International’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Scicus International will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Scicus International discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Scicus International believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Scicus International, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Scicus International website and have supplied your email address, Scicus International may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Scicus International and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Scicus International takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Scicus International, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Scicus International goes out of business, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Scicus International may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
