More information

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to improve the usability of our site. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns. We also collect data on the activity of individuals on our site, but only if they opt in by filling in a form on our site and consent to providing those contact details. All visitor and customer data is stored in secured systems that are password-protected and can only be accessed by the team at Life Science Newswire.

The first-party cookies in use on our site are for Google Analytics, Active Campaign and HubSpot. These services track visitor interactions and are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site. We also use these cookies to improve the user experience of individual visitors. Cookies will automatically expire after 26 months or can be deleted at any point in time by deleting them via your browser.

Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.

Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page.

If you complete a form on the Life Science Newswire website, the data provided will be stored within our secure customer relationship management systems (CRM), HubSpot and Active Campaign. Only information you provide as part of the form will be processed and stored, however, our HubSpot cookies are linked to delivering a customised experience for each browser. Therefore, if you provide your contact details by filling in one of our contact forms, these details will be stored and used to identify future visits. We do this so that we can optimise the content each individual interacts with and make the browsing experience more personal. Please rest assured, we do not share any tracking data with any third parties and use this information purely to improve and tailor your browsing experience on the Life Science Newswire website.

If you choose to receive ongoing communications from Life Science Newswire when filling in a form (by checking the opt-in box), you will receive ongoing email communication from the Life Science Newswire team, sharing the latest tips and industry insights from the world of life science marketing.

Finally, we also use third-party advertising services such as LinkedIn and Facebook to promote our content and company. These advertising partners collect information about your behaviour on our websites in order to deliver interest-based advertising on our behalf. We do not share any personal information with these partners, but you may have shared information with them if you have signed up for any of their services (such as in the case of Facebook or LinkedIn). If you fill in any contact forms associated with the Life Science Network on third-party platforms such as LinkedIn and Facebook, you will be added as a contact in our customer database.

If you wish to learn more about the data we hold, or if you would like to be removed from our database please contact our team.
