We at Science U have set up this page to answer your questions
regarding how information you provide to us will be treated. We are
committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors and want to
explain what we do with any information you provide us.
Visitor Tracking. For most of our visitors, we have no idea who
you are. We keep a server log file, which records your domain name,
what page you were visiting before you came to our site, and your
progress through our site. By examining this log, we can learn how
visitors find us and how they use the site. We use this information
to improve our site, to make it more informative and enjoyable.
Personalizable Features. Many of the features on our site
involve pages that you can personalize or images that you can store on
preferences and your image collection. If you wish to leave our site
and return to find your personal features intact, we ask you to get a
locker. For this you need to give us a name and a password. You
don't have to give us your real name, and we don't provide this
information to anyone else.
Purchasing. The products available on our site are from vendors
with whom we have contracts. In some cases the vendor collects
shipping and billing information from you. In other cases, we collect
it and pass it along to the vendor. We do this for your convenience,
to minimize the number of times you have to supply information. We
forward this information to a vendor only if you choose to visit the
vendor's site through our link.
Personal Information. We will not divulge your personal
information to any third party for any reason other than to expedite
your purchase from a vendor linked from our site. In particular, we
will not divulge any personal information to any marketing agency, nor
will we accept advertisements from any vendor or agency who collects
marketing information about your visit to our site.
Cookies. A cookie is an identifier that we set on your browser.
Somewhere in your browser preferences window, you probably can find an
option to turn on or off our ability to set a cookie. If you turn off
cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of some of the
features of Science U. If you wish to take advantage of these
features, but do not want our cookie to persist on your browser, you
should sign up for a Science U locker. When you close your
locker, we erase our cookie on your computer. When you return to
Science U and reopen your locker, we will reset the cookie (and
erase it again the next time you close your locker).
