Privacy Policy

Open Access Key's policy for protecting your personal information.

Privacy is an important concern for internet users, and is something that Open Access Key takes very seriously. What follows is an explanation of Open Access Key's policy for protecting users' personal information. What personal information does Open Access Key ask users to supply, and why?

Registration on Open Access Key is optional and voluntary. Browsing and viewing publicly accessible web pages on Open Access Key does not require any personal information to be submitted from users. Nor do these functions require the user's browser to be set to accept cookies.

Some other aspects of Open Access Key's service and other services published on Open Access Key do require the use of cookies, and the supply of information such as name, email etc. This is necessary for security reasons and also for Open Access Key to be able to assure standards of financial security.

Users may submit further personal information (e.g. details of research areas of interest) in order to take advantage of present and future personalization facilities on Open Access Key.

In accordance with European Union guidelines, registrants may decline to provide the information requested. They should be advised, however, that Open Access Key may be unable to deliver its services unless at least the information necessary for security and identification purposes is provided.
