Your privacy matters. In the below table we explain how we handle the privacy of website visitors.

Use of collected data
When you contact us through one of our forms, we either store this information in our database, on the servers of our hosting partner or send it to FEMS or OUP (our publisher handles with emails dealing with article submission via the contact form) by e-mail where the mail is stored both in the cloud and locally. We need this information and email traffic to help answer your questions, so handle it with care.
In our site we use cookies. A cookie is a small file that is sent along with pages of the site and is stored locally on the hard drive of your computer.

On this website we use Google Analytics (part of the US company Google) to analyze anonymous visitor information and improve our website. Google may be required to provide this information to third parties.

Most browsers accept cookies by default, but usually this is also off. This may well result in a site not working properly or completely. We therefore recommend instead to regularly delete your cookies.

Purposes and use of data
Your information will not be used for any purpose other than as described on this page, or as would be logical to provide optimal service. If necessary, we use this data, but we do not share it with third parties unless you have indicated that you allow us to.
Unsubscribing from newsletters
We send regular newsletters; at the bottom of every mailing you will find the opportunity to unsubscribe from all future mailings.

This privacy page is based on current functionalities and features of this website. Any changes to the site can also lead to changes in this section. It is therefore advisable to consult this privacy statement regularly.
