Privacy Policy

Scispot.io Inc. (“Scispot”, “we” or “us”) understands the importance of privacy and the responsible collection and use of personal information.  Please read on to learn more about how we take your privacy seriously, and the steps we take to protect it.  If you choose to access or use the Services in any manner, doing so means you accept the practices and policies outlined in this document and you consent to the collection and use of your information in the ways we describe here.  Our Terms of Use also apply to anyone who accesses or uses our Services and any capitalized terms we do not directly define here have the same meanings as those given to them in our Terms of Use.

Collection and Use of Information

The main reasons we collect information from you to begin with is to provide our Services, administer your account and use of our Services, and improve your experience with our Services.  Creating an account with us so that you can use our Services involves providing us information, such as your name, email address and phone number, or other information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Personal Information”).  You may also decide to provide, and we may decide to collect, further information related to your account profile, such as a photograph, or names of other people or organizations you may be affiliated with.  If you create an account in order to use our Services as a Provider, we may also need to collect further information such as the services you may offer, your business address, and so on.  You may also give us Personal Information in other interactions with us, such as seeking information about our Services or contacting us via email or the Services themselves.  We will keep a copy of all such communications with us.

Automatically collected Information

Anytime you interact with our Services, information received from your browser or device is automatically received and recorded on our server logs, which may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol address, browser type, operating system, search terms entered on the Services, information submitted in connection with orders or service contracts and transaction-related information, and other statistics.  You have likely also heard of “cookies”, which are identifiers that help a site work as you expect it to and customize your online experience.  We, like many websites, use cookies to improve our Services and customize content.  You may be able to change the preferences regarding cookies in your device or browser settings, but please be aware this may prevent you from using some features of our Services.

What do we use your information for?

In addition to some of the uses mentioned already, Scispot may use information collected from you to process and complete transactions and send related information such as invoices; to customize our Services and Website to your own preferences and needs; to analyze how our Services and Website are used in order to grow our features and functionality; to deal with online inquiries or provide access to resources you have requested; to administer your use of our Services, including your account; to send you communications such as service updates and account information; to prevent and investigate fraud, malware, identity theft, spam, or other such unauthorized access or use of the Services; for other purposes which we may notify you of from time to time.

What do we share with third parties?

We may engage with third parties in order to provide the Services to you, and as a result, they may have access to your information, including your Personal Information, for the purpose of fulfilling Services on our behalf and for the purposes set out in this policy.  We will only provide information to these third parties to the extent necessary to fulfil those purposes and in accordance with our Privacy Policy and applicable laws.  That being said, many third parties will also have their own policies, which we encourage you to review prior to using our Services.  In some instances, Sellers may submit orders, in which case relevant information, including Personal Information, may be transmitted during the course of the transaction.  If this information is transmitted via the Services, then our use of such information is governed by this Privacy Policy.  We may share non-identifying and aggregated information with third parties for research, analysis, or other similar purposes.  If we go out of business or are purchased by another company or have a similar change of control, your Personal Information may be transferred to the third party in connection with such a change.  In those cases, we will advise the third party of the importance of protecting the Personal Information in accordance with applicable law and the standards that are set out in this Privacy Policy.  We reserve the right to read, access, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is reasonably necessary to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials in order to enforce and comply with the law.

Securing your information

We take security seriously and maintain commercially appropriate technical measures and precautions to keep the information collected from or about you secure.  We will continue to update these measures as technology evolves, but please be aware that we cannot guarantee complete security, as events such as unauthorized access or use, software and hardware failures, and other events may compromise the security of your information.  Please be sure to keep any applicable passwords and account information secured.

Retaining Data

We will hang on to your information and Personal Information throughout the duration of your using the Services and have an account with us, or for as long as is required to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Policy.  You may also close your account by contacting us at team@scispot.io.  Even if you close your account, we may be required to retain your information, including Personal Information for an additional period for tax, legal, or regulatory reasons, or as may be required under applicable laws or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.
