Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

SYNkinase is committed to protecting your privacy. The policy below sets out what information we collect, why we collect it and how we use that information.

2. Basic Information and Creating an Account

When you browse the SYNkinase website, we establish a minimal "user profile" for you on the SYNkinase website which is tracked via a cookie (see 'Cookies' section below). This contains basic information such as how you first found us, IP address, and ISP host. If you decide to create an account with us, this profile is then associated with the email address you then provide.

Creating an account with us means we can personalize your use of the website and contact you with information that we believe will help you with your research i.e. new and updated products related to your interests, or new services that SYNkinase is offering.

You can update your account details by clicking on the 'sign in or register' links at the top of any page, including configuring the nature of contact from SYNkinase.

3. Data Security

The site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") for all financial transactions through the site. We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online, and we also take several steps to protect your personal information in our facilities. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, shielded by an electronic firewall. While we use standard industry precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.

4.Information We Collect for Ordering

If you place an order with SYNkinase, we ask you to sign in or create an account and then prompt you for address and contact details that will allow us to accurately fulfill and invoice you for the items you order. Except for credit card details that you may provide, we will record this information into your user profile so that next time you order you do not have to re-enter these details. Should you wish to review details of an order placed with us, you can see these by logging into your account.

5. Personally Identifiable Information

Any personally identifiable information (including credit card information) is passed over a secure encrypted (SSL) connection and we provide a third-party certificate which can be used to verify the credentials of the SYNkinase server you are supplying the details to.

6. Statistical Website Usage Information

SYNkinase also uses data collected from our website logs and standard JavaScript tools to spot general patterns of use of our website - this information is handled in aggregate form.

We do this in order to understand what users are interested in on our website and to help us improve the design of our website or product offerings.
