Privacy

Privacy:

Bio 2007 ("Bio 2007") operates www.bio2007.org and may operate other websites. It is Bio 2007's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Bio 2007 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. Bio 2007's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bio 2007's visitors use its website. From time to time, Bio 2007 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Bio 2007 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.bio2007.org blogs/sites. Bio 2007 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Bio 2007's websites choose to interact with Bio 2007 in ways that require Bio 2007 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bio 2007 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.bio2007.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Bio 2007 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Bio 2007 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Bio 2007. Bio 2007 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Bio 2007 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Bio 2007 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bio 2007 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Bio 2007 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 Bio 2007's behalf or to provide services available at Bio 2007'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 Bio 2007's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bio 2007 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, Bio 2007 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bio 2007 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bio 2007, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Bio 2007 website and have supplied your email address, Bio 2007 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 Bio 2007 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Bio 2007 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If Bio 2007, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Bio 2007 goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, 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 Bio 2007 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Bio 2007 and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Bio 2007 may change its Privacy from time to time, and in Bio 2007's sole discretion.
