At SciVee, we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect to process orders and to provide a more useful and personalized experience on our site. Please read on for more details about our privacy policy.

Information we collect and how we use it

We collect certain information from and about our users three ways: (1) directly from our web Server logs, (2) with Cookies, and (3) from you, the user. We do not collect information about the specifics of who you are ("Personally Identifiable Information") unless you specifically provide it to us.

Web server logs

When you visit our Site, we may track information to administer the Site and analyze its usage. None of this information is Personally Identifiable Information. Examples of information we may track include, but are not limited to:

  • Your Internet protocol address.
  • The kind of browser or computer you use.
  • Number of links you click within the site.
  • State or country from which you access the site.
  • Date and time of your visit.
  • Name of your Internet service provider.
  • Web pages from which you link to our site.
  • Web pages you go to from our site.
  • Pages you view on our site.

Use of cookies

We use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

The type of information that may be stored in a cookie includes non-Personally Identifiable Information about you, such as a randomly assigned user or session identification number, the country where you are located, and your first name to welcome you back to the site.

We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics with third parties, but will not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into our Site another site that relies on third-party cookies).

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this will disable the functionality of our Site.

Personal information entered by users

You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you register with us, send us e-mail messages, submit forms to us, or provide information to us by any means. When you register, we will request some personal information which may include your name, address, e-mail, telephone number or facsimile number, account number, and may include other relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

You may also provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us regarding third parties. For instance, when you share your SciVee video with others, you provide and we collect the email addresses of the people with whom you want to share your video.

We will not sell, trade, or rent Personally Identifiable Information to others. Furthermore, we will not disclose Personally Identifiable Information we collect from you to third parties without your permission, except to the extent necessary:

  • To fulfill your service request,
  • To protect ourselves from liability,
  • To respond to a court order or subpoena, to comply with an investigation, or to comply with applicable laws or rules, or
  • In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.

We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

Accessing web account information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that Personally Identifiable Information that we have on file for you is correct and current. You must update your Personally Identifiable Information promptly after it changes. You may review this information in your profile on the site or by sending us an e-mail (support@scivee.com ). You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed at any time. We will use reasonable efforts to delete your information; however, because we and our web hosting company have backup systems and keep track of past transactions and/or activities, it may be impossible to completely delete your information.

When you order SciVee products and service, we require your name, mailing address, e-mail address, credit card number, and expiration date. This information allows us to process your order and communicate with you. The SciVee service provides sellers and buyers with anti-fraud verification checks. In order to provide the results of these checks some of the data you provide will be used to compare publicly available databases with that data. We do not store your credit card information on our Site. Payments for membership services are made via credit card through our online transaction partner, Authorize.net. We may, however, receive and store information from Authorize.net regarding a portion of your credit card number and/or other identifiers to identify your transaction through Authorize.net. Please check the Authorize.net web site for their additional privacy policies.

Protecting customer information

When you place an order with SciVee, we offer the use of a secure server. All information you enter is encrypted via a secure sockets layer (SSL) before it is sent over the Internet to our secure servers. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. If you have questions about security on our Web site, please click here to contact us.

Participating third party policies

The SciVee site may contain links to related services and offerings, including vendor sites. These third parties may have their own privacy statements that can be viewed on their websites or by contacting these third parties directly. These third parties who participate in our services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of these third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

Disclosing the information to outside parties

SciVee does not, without your permission, sell, trade, rent, or otherwise transfer your personal information to others, except as outlined in this privacy policy. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site. We may share non-personal, non-individual statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with our marketing partners, advertisers, or other third parties for research purposes. We never, without the customer's permission, share information about specific individuals with third parties, except as outlined in this privacy policy.

Security of information

We will keep your Personally Identifiable Information secure consistent with current industry standards. Security of your Personally Identifiable Information is of utmost concern to us. Personally Identifiable Information, once transmitted to us, will be stored on computers that only selected personnel and contractors have access to via password, and which employ their own physical and network security measures.

Your SciVee videos and user content are limited-access, where access is gained through an obscured URL system. This obscured URL makes it difficult if not impossible for a third party to guess the URL address of your video or content without an invitation from you including the relevant URL. However, because the videos and content are not password-protected, a possibility exists that an unauthorized third party could discover your videos and/or content.

Privacy update policy

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement on http://www.scivee.tv . If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you by means of a notice on http://www.scivee.tv 30 days prior to implementation.
