If you're just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect by using common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs. The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

We collect this information to better understand how our website visitors use Bibcitation and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
What information Bibcitation does not collect
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Bibcitation does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we realize that you might send sensitive information.

If you're a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on Bibcitation. Bibcitation does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will, unfortunately, have to close your account. Please see our Terms of Service for information about account termination.
How we share the information we collect
We use various third-party ad networks to display advertisements on Bibcitation. These third-party ad networks might make use of the tracking cookies to show targeted advertisements to you. We do not share ANY information about you to these third-party networks.
Our use of cookies and tracking
Cookies
Bibcitation uses cookies to make interactions with our service easy and meaningful. We use cookies (and similar technologies, like HTML5 localStorage and sessionStorage) to keep you logged in, remember your preferences, and provide information for future development of Bibcitation.

A cookie is a small piece of text that our web server stores on your computer or mobile device, which your browser sends to us when you return to our site. Cookies do not necessarily identify you if you are merely visiting Bibcitation; however, a cookie may store a unique identifier for each logged in user. The cookies Bibcitation sets are essential for the operation of the website, or are used for performance or functionality. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device. If you disable your browser or device’s ability to accept cookies, you will not be able to log in or use Bibcitation’s services.

Tracking Tools
We use Tracking Tools (such as Google Analytics, Hotjar, or Amplitude) as third party tracking services. We use Tracking Tools to collect information about how our website performs and how our users, in general, navigate through and use Bibcitation. This helps us evaluate our users' use of Bibcitation; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance.

Certain pages on our site may set other third-party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. While we try to minimize these third party cookies, we can’t always control what cookies this third party content sets.
How Bibcitation secures your information
Bibcitation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect user information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of user information. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Bibcitation's global privacy practices
Information that we collect will be stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, we understand that we have users from different countries and regions with different privacy expectations, and we try to meet those needs.

We provide the same standard of privacy protection to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location, and we are proud of the levels of notice, choice, accountability, security, data integrity, access, and recourse we provide. We work hard to comply with the applicable data privacy laws wherever we do business.

Additionally, we require that if our vendors or affiliates have access to User Personal Information, they must comply with our privacy policies and with applicable data privacy laws, including signing data transfer agreements such as Standard Contractual Clause agreements.
Resolving Complaints
If you have concerns about the way Bibcitation is handling your user information, please let us know immediately. We want to help. You may contact us directly through our contact us page with the subject line "Privacy Concerns." We will respond within 45 days at the latest. In the unlikely event that a dispute arises between you and Bibcitation regarding our handling of your user information, we will do our best to resolve it.
How we respond to compelled disclosure
Bibcitation may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large. In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, Bibcitation strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances.
How we communicate with you
Depending on your email settings, Bibcitation may occasionally send notification emails and send marketing emails, but only with your consent. There's an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the emails we send you. Our emails might contain a pixel tag, which is a small, clear image that can tell us whether or not you have opened an email and what your IP address is. We use this pixel tag to make our email more effective for you and to make sure we’re not sending you unwanted email. If you prefer not to receive pixel tags, please opt out of marketing emails.
Changes to our Privacy Policy
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Bibcitation may change our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will provide notification to Users of material changes to this Privacy Policy through our Website at least 24 hours prior to the change taking effect by posting a notice on our home page or sending email to the email address specified in your Bibcitation primary account if you are subscribed to emails.
