Privacy Policy
We Protect Your Information (note the large font and lack of legalese)

  • Our Committment To You
  • We believe that a "Privacy Policy" should be straightforward and to the point. We pledge to protect the privacy of every user. Unlike other social networks, we do not exploit your data. For example, we do not share or sell your personal information with other parties, such as advertisers or big corporations. We are ethical.
  • The data that relates to you specifically is strictly confined to our domain. We may feature the posts & information that you share within Scholarly Insider in our Campus Guides, but even that remains internal. We have no plans on leaking any data whatsoever. To read more, please visit our Terms of Use.
  • You May Define Your Access Settings
  • Each profile page contains an "Edit Profile" option, for example, where you can toggle accessibility between "Public," "Private," "Friends," "Logged in users," and other categories. In so doing, you can select what population can view your profile information. However, this option is not limited to profiles, since there are many features and components of this site that allow you to define accessibility. If you wish, this site allows for the experience of a "closed to the public," private network.
  • We do not take responsibility for your access settings and it is your choice whether or not to set them; nonetheless, we highly encourage sharing your knowledge with the world, but we do not force it upon you. You can just share with your friends and call it a day.
  • Cookies
  • We do not use cookies to collect personal data about our website visitors in order to achieve a "track and target" agenda. Those who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before viewing pages served on any network, with the drawback that certain features of these pages may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
  • User-Generated Content
  • We enable account holders the ability to submit media files, text or other content for display on the web site. Such information may or may not be visible to anyone on the Internet.
  • Privacy Policy Changes
  • Although most changes are likely to be minor, Scholarly Insider may change this Privacy Policy from time-to-time at our discretion. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of that change, which is why we encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any updates.
