Once you apply for publication, and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us. We may also collect other information when you visit PhDFocus™ pages or the pages of certain PhDFocus™ partners.
Security of such information is a high priority for us.
For some products we may also ask for your address or credit card information. Be assured that credit card information is encrypted and stored only on secure machines.
PhDFocus™ automatically receives and records information on our server logs from the information that your browser sends to us, including your IP address, cookies, and the page you request.
