For registered users (“Members”), we store standard personally identifiable information such as email address, name, password, social network links, profession and field, job title, ip address, affiliations, and any other information that you, as a Member, provide. In addition, we may determine and store any organizations that you are affiliated with, as this constitutes important information to accompany your Member Contributions, and in order to avoid abuse of the Platforms.
Information that you wish to share publicly by altering the settings on your user profile will be published. If you contribute public content (“Member Contributions”), your screen name and, optionally, your organization will be displayed publicly next to it.
We store personally identifiable information on third party electronic systems, such as cloud service providers. These third parties act as “data processors” for us and will only act under our instruction and are subject to pre-contract scrutiny and contractual obligations containing strict data protection clauses. We do not allow these organizations to use your data for their own purposes or disclose it to other third parties without our consent and we take all reasonable care to ensure that they keep your data secure.
We will not share your non-public personally identifiable information with any other third party, except:
· after obtaining your written consent
· if we are required to do so by law.
We may contact you by e-mail:
· in response to your feedback, questions, complaints or suggestions
· in relation to your usage of the Platforms
· on behalf of other Members seeking to establish collaborations or other working relationships
· with notifications of other Members’ comments or other feedback on your Member Contributions.
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for the Platforms.
You will receive our newsletter if you opt in to do so. The newsletter may contain communications regarding products and services by Saphetor or third parties.
You may request at any time to obtain all the personally identifiable data we have stored about you.
You may request Saphetor to delete all your personally identifiable information by closing your account.
If you do not use your account for a period of five years, we will close your account and delete all your personally identifiable information automatically.

The Platforms deposit certain bits of information called “cookies” in a visitor’s computer. Generally, a cookie assigns a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the Platforms. This technology does not collect an individual visitor’s identifying information.

If so you wish, you may disable cookie placement by changing the parameters of your browser, and you can easily remove any cookies that have been created in the cookie folder of your browser. For further information, see e.g. http://www.wikihow.com/Disable-Cookies.
