The Einstein Project’s Privacy Policy

The Einstein Project (TEP) does not intend to collect personal information from children. Our information collection practices are described below. While we encourage children to visit our site and explore the science-related links in our KidZone, we recommend, however, that parents approve and closely supervise the activity of their children at this and all other online sites. We urge children to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their children restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.

The Information TEP Collects
We respect your privacy as our online guest, and we will not collect any identifying or personal information about you while you are here except as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

TEP collects information in several ways from different parts of this site. TEP may collect personal information from you when you register for our e-newsletter. If you contact TEP, TEP may keep a record of that session or correspondence, including a record of your e-mail address. TEP may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys for research purposes. There also may be services on this site that require you to fill out an online form or send TEP an e-mail message in order to utilize these services. TEP collects any information that you provide in such circumstances, including any personal information. 

We may ask you for identifying and personal information to:

  • Invite you to receive periodic e-mail updates about us: When you accept, or “opt in,” we ask you to give us your e-mail address. You can “opt out” of receiving these periodic updates at any time.
  • Processing any online donations you make to The Einstein Project: When you donate to honor someone else, we do not use the information you give us about that person for any other purpose other than to notify that person if you have requested we do so and to include your gift in our newsletter along with your honoree’s name, unless you choose to remain anonymous.
  • Accepting your online “registration” at our site: When you agree to give us identifying and personal information, you are giving that information only to The Einstein Project and the parties we have involved in operating this site. You are giving it solely to enable the services this site provides. 

TEP also may collect IP addresses, domain names, and similar items regarding users of this site to measure the number of visits, pages visited, average time spent on this site, and similar items.

"Cookies" may be used in connection with this site. A cookie is a small amount of identifier data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. By using cookies, information is potentially collected without your express knowledge. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies but permit you to change the setting to refuse cookies or to be alerted when cookies are being sent. While refusal to accept cookies will not prevent the use of some portions of this site, other portions of this site may not function properly without cookies.

How TEP Uses the Information it Collects
TEP uses the information it collects through this site to improve its marketing and promotional efforts, to improve its content, and to customize this site's services, content, and layout. TEP may provide the information it collects through this site to third parties who provide services on TEP's behalf. TEP may use the information it collects through this site to inform you of new services, changes, or promotions. If you do not want us to send you this type of information, please let us know by contacting us at
einstein@einsteinproject.org. We will not disclose your personal information collected through this site to third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy without first informing you of such change in our disclosure practices and providing you a choice regarding such disclosure. 

Generally, TEP may use cookies and the information they provide to: (a) remind it of who you are; (b) access your account information in order to deliver to you better and more personalized service; (c) estimate its audience size; (d) determine the nature and extent of repeat usage; and (e) measure certain traffic patterns to understand how users' habits are similar or different from one another, so that TEP may improve its site.

TEP understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site. TEP will not share personal information you submit through this site with companies not affiliated with TEP for purposes of marketing or promoting events, products, or similar items, except that TEP may, from time to time, make personal information available to selected third parties, but only in the aggregate. 

TEP may disclose information it collects through this site when required to do so by a court, regulatory agency, subpoena, law, regulation, or other body of competent jurisdiction and authority, and for administrative and other purposes that TEP deems necessary to maintain, service, and improve its products and services and to protect its rights and property. Finally, if you become involved in any violation of security, violation of this website's Terms of Use, or violation of any party's or third party's rights, TEP may release information about you to assist in investigating, resolving, or remediating any such incidents.

Integrity and Security
TEP employs commercially reasonable managerial and technical measures to help protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while TEP strives to protect your personal information, TEP cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site. 

Privacy Practices of Other Sites
This Privacy Policy only address the use and disclosure of information TEP collects online through this site, not information that TEP collects through other sources. For your convenience, this site may contain links, or addresses, that you can simply click to open other useful sites where we do not control the content or privacy policy. Carefully review the approach these sites take to your privacy before you use them or provide them with information.

We assume no liability for any unauthorized actions of third parties or accidental transmission errors that may disclose information about you, and TEP is not responsible for these other sites' privacy practices, which may be different from TEP's privacy practices.

Contacting TEP About Your Personal Information
