Privacy statement

AIP Publishing LLC (AIPP) is committed to protecting your privacy and values your trust. This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect from you, how we collect this information, and what we do with it after we collect it.

What information is collected

Personal Information. We collect Personal Information that you provide to us, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and society membership.

Non-Personal Information. We also collect non-personal information from you, such as your browser type, the URL of the previous website you visited, your ISP, operating system, and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This enables us to know how many users visited our website, which pages were accessed, and other information about site usage that will help us to improve our offerings. Non-Personal Information cannot be easily used to personally identify you.

The information we ask for is voluntary, although some services are only accessible by registering user details.

Notice to EU Users: The server for www.aip.org is located in the United States. By entering information on this site, you are consenting to the transfer of that information to the United States. Your information will be handled in accordance with AIPP's Privacy Policy.

How collected information is used

The primary purpose of gathering information is to allow AIPP to link a name and contact information to a user ID or to enhance your browsing experience. Once you have provided appropriate information, you will be enabled to use a variety of products or personalized services, and to access online help or support.

AIPP has a policy to use or sell its customer lists only for the delivery of information deemed of potential relevance or interest to members of the physics community. AIPP offers an option to remove your information from any list that might be sold or given to another organization. To do so, please contact the Scitation Help Desk.

We may share aggregated (i.e., non-individual) demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This aggregated information cannot be related to identifiable individuals.

How we keep information secure

AIPP is committed to safeguarding your information. We make commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information both online and off-line.

Data security
To maintain data security we have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard all sensitive information.

All online purchases you make with AIPP are secured with SSL (secure socket layer) encryption using encryption certificates issued to AIPP by well-known and reputable certificate authorities such as VeriSign and RapidSSL. You will know that you are in a secure session because the "http" in the URL box of your browser will read "https".

AIPP continually monitors the security status of its networks and has taken appropriate measures to ensure intrusion prevention.

Ecommerce

AIPP adheres to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard developed to protect account and transaction information of cardholders. We partner with a secure and reliable payment system provider and employ industry-standard anti-fraud measures.

Opt-out for European Union and other users

In accordance with EU and other guidelines, you may decline to provide the information requested by AIPP. Please be advised, however, that AIPP may be unable to provide certain services unless such information is provided for security and identification purposes.

AIPP sites contain links to other sites, and other sites have links to AIPP. Please be aware that AIPP is not responsible for the privacy practices (or other practices, goods, services, or content) of other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by AIPP.
