BioComp Instruments employs a variety of automated data collection services that ultimately help us to evaluate our user base and improve our website. This information includes, but is not limited to, usage details such as your browser, operating system, IP address, and the pages you visited while you were with us.
This information is used on a strictly internal basis as a means to direct our efforts to specific parts of our website. For example, if a majority of our users are engaging with a specific article, we will produce more content of a similar type. If Firefox users are dropping off more quickly, we’ll work on optimizing for Firefox. This information does not identify individuals and is for maintenance purposes exclusively.
All of BioComp Instruments’ website is available to users who are uninterested in disclosing who they are or revealing any contact information. Users who want to subscribe and become a member of any of BioComp Instruments’ mailing lists or participate in promotional offers are required to provide their name and email address. We use this information to fulfill your request for our additional services and to contact you infrequently with updates and promotional material.
We may also collect information about you when you engage with certain BioComp Instruments features across our network, including advertisements, submission fields embedded in social media, when you enter into BioComp Instruments promotions, and during service requests or fulfillment.
Because BioComp Instruments operates on a service income and is not fuelled by ad revenue, we do not share your usage data or personal information with advertisers.
BioComp Instruments reserves the right, and you hereby expressly authorize us to share any information: in response to legal subpoenas, court orders and legal processes, and to exercise our legal right to defend against legal claims; if we determine that it is necessary regarding illegal activities, fraudulent activities, or potential threats to the safety of any person or property; if you are significantly abusing the integrity of BioComp Instruments services (for example spam or security compromises); if we are acquired by another entity.
