Privacy Policy

InfoQuant respects the privacy and security of its users. Our goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you and our bioinformatics community.

In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for the entire InfoQuant, Ltd site. Here, you will learn what personally identifiable information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

What Information is Collected

InfoQuant collects certain information from and about its users in two ways -- from our Web server logs, and with cookies.

User-Supplied Information: Other than by email no user-supplied information is required by this site. Server Log Information: When you visit an Internet Web site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to a InfoQuant page). InfoQuant, like many other sites, records this basic information about visits to its site.

Cookies: In order to offer and provide a customized, personal service, InfoQuant may use cookies to store and help track your information. Cookies are simply pieces of information that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. The use of cookies is relatively standard and you will likely find them used on most other major Web sites. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser either to notify you when you receive a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. You should understand that certain areas of many sites may not function properly if you set your browser to not accept cookies or if you reject a cookie.

You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although InfoQuant tries to protect your personal information, InfoQuant cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.

How and When Information is Used

We use information in different ways, depending on the type of information:

  • User-supplied information: This information is used for purposes such as personalization and verification.
  • Web Server Logs: This information helps us identify which areas of our site are of interest to our visitors. InfoQuant also collects the Internet [Protocol] (IP) addresses of its visitors for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. 
  • Cookies: We use "cookies" to let you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site.

How We Protect Your Information

The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. InfoQuant, Ltd.  does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding your InfoQuant usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, InfoQuant cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Who Has Access to the Information

Except as described below, InfoQuant will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user's permission. InfoQuant may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of InfoQuant. When you are at the InfoQuant site and asked for personal information, you share that information with InfoQuant Communications alone, unless the service is offered in conjunction with another party.

Please contact InfoQuant with any questions or comments regarding this privacy policy.
