  1. Membership Registration Information: We collect the information you supply when you become a Member of the Site, including your username, email address, and the password you select. You may edit this information at any time by logging in. We store passwords in an encrypted fashion, so we will never know your password at any point in time.
  2. Internet Protocol Address: We log the Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses of individuals that visit our site. An IP address provides general statistical information, including general geographic and demographic information that we use for system administration. More specifically, we use such information to optimize your experience on the Site.

In rare cases, we will do so to protect the Site and its users, and/or to enforce compliance with our Terms and Conditions of Use.

The core service of the Site is to provide easy access to this data from anywhere and on any device. We do not analyze or process this data in any way other than storing, updating, and retrieving equations according to user requests.

We also use non-personally identifying information to improve the design and content of our site. We may also use this information to analyze site usage.

We only keep your personal information for as long as it remains relevant or as otherwise required by law. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law or where reasonably necessary to protect our rights or a third party's rights, for example, in response to a court order, a subpoena, a request by a law enforcement agency, or to respond to claims that any content violates the right of third parties.

Although we will strive to take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. Inadvertent disclosures may occur.

We will only share your personal information with those who provide services to the Site. Those persons do not have any right to use your personal information beyond what is necessary to assist us. We will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to any third party. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may use a third party credit card payment processing company to bill you for services.

6. How Does TeXscribe Protect My Personal Information?

All personal information is stored in our database. Access to personal information is limited to those individuals who are authorized to use such information for business and administrative purposes. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information, too. For instance, never tell anyone else your password.
