Privacy Notice

This web site is provided by Public Science Framework. Public Science Framework takes the privacy of Public Science Framework’s web site users and the security of their personal information very seriously.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to set out the principles governing Public Science Framework’s use of the personal information which you give to Public Science Framework, or Public Science Framework obtains about you, via the web. By using this web site, or (where applicable) by registering as a user of the on-line services which Public Science Framework provides, you agree to this use. Public Science Framework asks you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Public Science Framework may change Public Science Framework’s Privacy Policy from time to time. Therefore, Public Science Framework ask you to check this Privacy Policy occasionally to ensure that you are aware of the most recent version which will apply from the time you access this web site. Public Science Framework will of course notify you of any changes where Public Science Framework is required to do so.


If you are required to register in order to use this web site or to otherwise complete an on-line application form, then Public Science Framework will collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, e-mail address, country of residence and other information which you voluntarily submit.

Public Science Framework intends to continue improving the content and functionality of Public Science Framework‘s web site. Public Science Framework may also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help Public Science Framework to improve the design and layout of the web site, to personalise your experience by tailoring the content you see thus optimising your user experience.
Occasionally, Public Science Framework may obtain sensitive personal information about you, for example, information relating to your physical or mental health or condition, but only if you voluntarily provide Public Science Framework with this information. By providing Public Science Framework with this information you consent to Public Science Framework processing your sensitive personal data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and any collection notice provided.

Public Science Framework may also obtain information about your opinions if, for example, you send Public Science Framework feedback, or ask Public Science Framework questions.

Public Science Framework may also, occasionally, receive information about you from other sources (such as third parties or other companies within the Group) which Public Science Framework will add to the information which Public Science Framework already hold about you in order to help Public Science Framework improve and personalise Public Science Framework’s service to you.
If you provide Public Science Framework with information about another person e.g. a colleague of yours, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them, to consent to the processing of their personal information, including sensitive personal data, and that you have informed them of Public Science Framework’s identity and the purposes (as set out in this Privacy Policy) for which their information will be processed.

Public Science Framework may disclose personal information in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or in response to a non-mandatory request for information made by a governmental or state body.

You consent to Public Science Framework’s transferring your information to countries or jurisdictions which do not provide the same legal level of data protection as your home country. If Public Science Framework does make such a transfer, Public Science Framework will ensure that your information is appropriately protected while in transit and while in the destination country.


Public Science Framework has in place appropriate security policies which are intended to ensure, as far as reasonably possible, the security and integrity of all Public Science Framework’s information, including your personal information.


Whenever you use Public Science Framework’s services, Public Science Framework aims to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, Public Science Framework strives to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless Public Science Framework has to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, Public Science Framework may ask you to verify your identity before Public Science Framework can act on your request.

Public Science Framework may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).

Where Public Science Framework can provide information access and correction, Public Science Framework will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. Public Science Framework aims to maintain Public Science Framework’s services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from Public Science Framework’s services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from Public Science Framework’s active servers and may not remove information from Public Science Framework’s backup systems.


The Public Science Framework web site may provide links to third-party web sites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the Public Science Framework web site. Public Science Framework does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from Public Science Framework policy. Public Science Framework does not endorse or make any representations about third party web sites. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is not covered by the Public Science Framework Privacy Policy. Public Science Framework encourages you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information. Some third party companies may choose to share their personal data with Public Science Framework; that sharing is governed by that third party company's privacy policy.
