How Do You Use My Data?
When you submit an article for publication, we collect information from you, such as: your name, address, email address, phone number, job title, employer/academic institution, and biographical information. We use this information to ensure appropriate attribution and identify you as the author of the article. We provide your information to other publishers and distribution services to ensure a wide distribution and access to your article by interested parties.
We need to collect and use your personal information in this way to carry out the contract in place between us.
Where Is My Data Stored?
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third party data storage providers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You must not share your password with anyone.
How Long Do We Retain Your Data?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
Right to data portability
You may have the right to receive your personal information in a structured, standard machine readable format and to send this to another organization controlling your personal information.
This right only applies to your personal information we are handling because you consented to us using it or because there is a contract in place between us.
Right to erasure
You may have the right to require us to erase your personal information which we are handling in the following circumstances:
where we no longer need to use your personal information for the reasons we told you we collected it;
where we needed your consent to use your personal information, you have withdrawn your consent and there is no other lawful way we can continue to use your personal information;
when you object to our use of your personal information and we have no compelling reason to carry on handling it;
if our handling of your personal information has broken the law; and
when we must erase your personal information to comply with a law we are subject to.
Right to complain
You may have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues in your territory. As we conduct business globally, we have not set out the specific supervisory authorities for each country in this policy, but please contact us if you would like us to identify who the relevant supervisory authority is in your country or territory.
Please be aware that we may also need to use your personal information if it is relevant to a legal claim that is being pursued.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, we promise to stop sending them to you.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research, product development or improvement, or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
