NOTICE TO EU DATA SUBJECTS (INCLUDING VISITORS TO THE SITE FROM THE EU AND INDIVIDUALS FROM THE EU WHOSE DATA WE USE TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES)
Personal Information and Other Data We Collect
We consider all information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as name, mailing address, email address and telephone number, to be personally identifiable information (“PII” or “personal information”).
RelSci collects several types of information about or relating to you, including:
You may provide us your information when you register to use our Site, when you subscribe to receive our Services, when you create a user account, when you use one of our online tools, when you carry out a transaction on our Site (such as making a payment), or when you report a problem with our Site. You understand that by creating an account, uploading information to our Site, or interacting with us in any of these ways, we and other users of the Site or our Services will be able to identify you.
When you visit the Site, whether or not you are a subscriber, we may send one or more "cookies" (small data files) to your browser to uniquely identify you, let us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Site. A cookie may convey anonymous information about how you browse the Site to us, but does not collect personal information about you unless you are a subscriber to one of our Services, in which case your name may be included in the cookie to facilitate faster access to the Site.
We may use both persistent and session cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your computer after you close your browser so that it can be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Most persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser's directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears or becomes inactive after you close your browser.
You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, keep in mind that some features of the Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Do Not Track
We will attempt to respect your wishes when you set your browser to “do not track” (a setting that your Internet browser may make available to you, which allows you to choose not to have your online behavior tracked). However, we cannot guarantee that in all instances your information will not be tracked by our Site or by a third party performing services for us (such as Google Analytics).
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you use the Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, IP address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
Minors (those under the age of 18) may not use the Site. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18, and no part of the Site is designed to attract anyone under the age of 18. Because we do not intentionally collect any information from children under the age of 18, we also do not knowingly share or disclose such information to third parties. If you have reason to believe that a child under 18 years of age has provided us with personal information, please contact us at Privacy@RelSci.com and we will take appropriate action under applicable law.

We may also share this information with third parties, whether as part of our Services or in connection with other transactions in which we may engage. You specifically consent to this sharing.
We make certain third party tools and services available, such as software widgets, tools or applications, which allow you to synchronize your desktop and/or mobile device’s calendar, email or contacts residing on third party applications with our Services. Your use of these tools means that you have granted permission to us and to the applicable third parties to access your information and information about your Contacts. We and these third parties may also be able to access your email, calendar and other accounts, and we and they may collect and store some or all of this information for our/their own purposes.
We may use Google Analytics, a service offered by Google, Inc., and other analytical tools to track your activities on our Site, including your browsing history. We use this information to improve the quality of our Services. Google Analytics also may collect non-personal information about you, your computer and the network you use to connect to our Site.

Examples of these communications include: (1) welcome and engagement communications informing you about how to best use our Services, new features, etc.; (2) service communications, such as messages to inform you of service unavailability, security, and other issues about our Services; and (3) promotional communications, which may contain promotional information about our Services, or those coming directly or on behalf of our partners.

sign on to the Site through a third-party service, or using credentials from a
third party website, such as Facebook. Please note however, that we are
not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites (even if we
