We collect information about you in three ways: directly from your input, from third-party sources, and through automated technologies.
The types of personal information that we collect directly from you depends on the content and features of the Service you use and how you otherwise interact with us and may include:
We obtain academic information from publicly-available sources and data suppliers.
This data may be combined with other information we collect and might include aggregate level data
We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your information will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. You understand that when you use public areas of the Services, your information will be available to other users and in some cases may be publicly available.
We are cautious about not providing any information beyond publically available academic information (names, affiliations, authorship) that we have in our possession whether provided by you or generated automatically by our services
The Prophy Services may also automatically collect information about how you and your device interact with the Service, such as:
We do not collect or process bank accounts, credit card details, debit card details or any information regarding payment services. Such information is collected and processed by our partners – payment services providers and they have full responsibility for its protection.
For more information, please see https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/. We also use a custom cookie for keeping you logged in when using Prophy.
Some information in the Services may be disclosed, and not be deleted, when it is believed to be important for academic and research purpose. Research communications heavily depend on publications, and information relevant to publications is in general important for the Services, users, and their studies. Among various pieces of personal information relevant to a publication record, we believe, to the extent permitted by applicable law and the correspondent license under which the record is shared, at least the real names of authors, their affiliations, and their bibliographic metrics such as h-index and received citations are academic information.
We collect author names as publicly accessible metadata from the web, publishers and other sources for display across our website including in association with papers, presentations, blog posts, code repositories, videos and citations/references. This data and content is stored indefinitely. We use the author name from this publicly accessible metadata to auto-generate author profile pages where we display content associated with an author, compute citation statistics and display links to other authors. Author profile pages can be updated via Profile page.
Our Website provides for a free account registration by which you will be able to perform semantic searches, bookmark interesting papers, monitor scientific information streams, and get access to new features as they launch.
Upon registration we collect your names, email and information whether you are a student, researcher, science enthusiast or other. We need those data for individualization and authentication purposes, services provision, security purposes, and contact correspondence if necessary. You can at any time change this information through the functionalities of your account.
We also collect and process data in order to provide and manage the Services you have requested. Our goal is to help scientists optimize their research processes, so our Services provide you with AI tailored tools aiming to improve your researchers’ experience.
