Who we are

Share Your Sci is an independently run website aimed at scientists across the world. We provide several services to help researchers find science communication tools or support that best fit their needs. Our website address is https://shareyoursci.com.

This privacy policy describes how we handle any personal data you may provide us with. It covers your use of our website, our mailing list, and any other exchanges of information, such as the sale of ebooks, or online course registrations.

Some of your interaction with elements of this site may require you to enter your name and email address. For example, this happens in the following instances:

This is the only personal data we hold on you. If you just visit the site, some data is sent to Google Analytics, but none of that includes personally identifiable information. We are not tracking your full IP address.

How we use your data
