Protecting Personal Information

Your personal information will be password protected. You should take appropriate measures to protect the secrecy of your password, and if you share a computer then you should remember to sign out and close the browser window when finished with a SelectScience session.

We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner which differs from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we can use their information in this different manner.
