Privacy Statement & Cookies Policy

Welcome to our Privacy Policy

It is SEEd Srl’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. This Privacy Policy applies to the websites owned and operated by SEEd Srl, particularly: seedmedicalpublishers.com and edizioniseed.it (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “seedmedicalpublishers.com”). We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through our Websites and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SEEd Srl collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SEEd Srl’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SEEd Srl’s visitors use its websites. From time to time, SEEd Srl may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SEEd Srl’s websites choose to interact with SEEd Srl in ways that require SEEd Srl to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SEEd Srl gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the newsletter at http://seedmedicalpublishers.com to provide a username and email address.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links To External Sites
Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SEEd Srl discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SEEd Srl’s behalf or to provide services available at SEEd Srl’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SEEd Srl’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SEEd Srl will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SEEd Srl discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SEEd Srl believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SEEd Srl, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of http://seedmedicalpublishers.com and have supplied your email address, SEEd Srl may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SEEd Srl and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SEEd Srl takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, SEEd Srl may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in SEEd Srl’s sole discretion. SEEd Srl encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
