This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is handled for the services on the Journal of Proteolysis websites. It applies generally to the website and content and other related websites where this policy appears in the footer of the page. The policy that appears in the footer of the page is always the policy that applies. Subject to the requirements of applicable law, the Journal of Proteolysis strives to provide a consistent set of privacy practices. By accepting the Privacy Policy and the User Agreement in registration, you expressly consent to the Journal of Proteolysis’s collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance for new users and is otherwise effective on December 1, 2013.

You can browse the Journal of Proteolysis’s sites without revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you provide the Journal of Proteolysis with your personal information, for example, once you register as a new user, you are not anonymous to the Journal of Proteolysis. If you choose to give the Journal of Proteolysis your personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on the Journal of Proteolysis’s servers located in the United States.

The Journal of Proteolysis may collect and store the following personal information: name, email address, physical contact information, professional information, such as research or review interests or biographical information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information, such as credit card or bank account numbers; transactional information based on your activities on the sites (such as submitting, reviewing, discussing, commenting); shipping, billing and other information you provide to purchase a paper or a subscription; community discussions, chats, dispute resolution, correspondence through our sites, and correspondence sent to us; other information from your interaction with the Journal of Proteolysis’s sites, services, content and advertising, including computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the sites, ad data, IP address and standard web log information; additional information the Journal of Proteolysis may ask you to submit to authenticate yourself; information from other companies, such as demographic and navigation data; and other supplemental information from third parties.

The Journal of Proteolysis does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. The Journal of Proteolysis may combine your information with information collected from other companies and use it to improve and personalize the services, content and advertising. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from The Journal of Proteolysis or participate in The Journal of Proteolysis’s ad-customization programs, simply indicate your preference in the Journal of Proteolysis or by following the directions provided with the communication or advertisement.

The Journal of Proteolysis’s primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, efficient, and customized experience. You agree that the Journal of Proteolysis may use your personal information to: provide the services and customer support you request; resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our User Agreement; customize, measure and improve the services, content and advertising; tell you about the services, targeted marketing, service updates; and compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties.

The Journal of Proteolysis may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce the Journal of Proteolysis’s policies, respond to claims that a submission or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. The Journal of Proteolysis may also share your personal information with: members of the corporate family to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of the Journal of Proteolysis’s policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications; service providers under contract who help with the Journal of Proteolysis’s business operations (such as fraud investigations and bill collection); other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service); law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, the Journal of Proteolysis in its sole discretion believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity; and other business entities, should the Journal of Proteolysis plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and the Journal of Proteolysis’s ability to keep the community free from bad actors, the Journal of Proteolysis will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when the Journal of Proteolysis believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Your User ID is displayed throughout the Journal of Proteolysis (and hence available to the public), and is connected to all of your the Journal of Proteolysis activity. Other people can see your submissions, reviews, discussions, feedback, ratings and associated comments. Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and policy violations on the Journal of Proteolysis’s sites refer to User IDs and specific items. If you associate your name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities. If you access the Journal of Proteolysis’s sites from a shared computer or a computer in an internet café, certain information about you, such as your User ID, activity or reminders from the Journal of Proteolysis, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer after you.

The Journal of Proteolysis enables you to share personal information to publish a contribution. The Journal of Proteolysis encourages you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other users. The Journal of Proteolysis cannot guarantee the privacy or security of your information. To help protect your privacy, The Journal of Proteolysis allows only limited access to other users' contact information. When users are involved in a review/evaluation of a contribution, they may have access to each other's name, User ID, email address and other contact information. In all cases, you must give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.

You agree to use user information only for: the Journal of Proteolysis transaction-related purposes that are not unsolicited commercial messages; using services offered through the Journal of Proteolysis, or other purposes that a user expressly chooses.

The Journal of Proteolysis uses small files placed on your hard drive called “cookies” on certain of The Journal of Proteolysis’s pages to help analyze The Journal of Proteolysis’s web page flow; customize The Journal of Proteolysis’s services, content and advertising; and promote trust and safety. The Journal of Proteolysis offers certain features that are available only through the use of cookies. The Journal of Proteolysis uses cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status. Most cookies are “session cookies,” that are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. You are always free to decline the Journal of Proteolysis’s cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of The Journal of Proteolysis’s sites or services. You may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the sites that the Journal of Proteolysis does not control.

The Journal of Proteolysis does not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your the Journal of Proteolysis notification preferences so the Journal of Proteolysis communicates to you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other the Journal of Proteolysis users, even a user who has reviewed an article submitted by you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent. To report the Journal of Proteolysis-related spam or spoof emails to the Journal of Proteolysis, please forward the email to   or  .

You may not use the Journal of Proteolysis’s communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement.

If you send an email to an email address that is not registered in the Journal of Proteolysis’s community (via Suggest-a-Reviewer or other tools), the Journal of Proteolysis does not permanently store that email or use that email address for any marketing purpose. The Journal of Proteolysis does not rent or sell these email addresses.

Your password is the key to your account. Do not disclose your the Journal of Proteolysis password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf.

You can see, review and change most of your personal information by signing on to the Journal of Proteolysis. Generally, the Journal of Proteolysis will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting like a biographical description, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, the Journal of Proteolysis will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. The Journal of Proteolysis does retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our the Journal of Proteolysis User Agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

Your information is stored on the Journal of Proteolysis’s servers located in the United States. The Journal of Proteolysis treats data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although the Journal of Proteolysis works very hard to protect your privacy, the Journal of Proteolysis does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information the Journal of Proteolysis collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are authors, reviewers or editors on the Journal of Proteolysis sites or other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. The Journal of Proteolysis does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable.

The Journal of Proteolysis may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the site. In addition, the Journal of Proteolysis will notify you through the Journal of Proteolysis Announcements. You may write to us at: Polivirtue LLC.
