Privacy Policy

Scarab Genomics respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it. This Privacy Policy explains how Scarab Genomics treats your information, correspondence, and software exchanged through a Scarab Genomics website to best serve you.


Information Scarab Genomics requests or collects from you

To provide the superior services offered by a Scarab Genomics website, Scarab Genomics collects from you two types of information: personally identifiable information and technology-related information.

Personally identifiable information: This is information that identifies the person who is using a Scarab Genomics website. When you register for services offered by a Scarab Genomics website, Scarab Genomics may request personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. When you make an on-line business transaction through a Scarab Genomics website, Scarab Genomics may request personally identifiable information such as your account number with Scarab Genomics, credit card number or other payment account information. Scarab Genomics may also collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily disclose to Scarab Genomics through electronic correspondence, such as comments transmitted by e-mail.

Technology-related information: This is information related to your computer when you access a Scarab Genomics website. Because technology is employed in collecting this information, it is not readily apparent to you that it is being collected. An example of technology-related information which Scarab Genomics may collect is your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address. An IP address is a number, uniquely identifying a computer, necessary for computer to web server communication on the Internet.

In using other services offered by a Scarab Genomics website, you can update your personally identifiable information by reregistering with the service with a comment instructing Scarab Genomics to update your personally identifiable information or by sending an email of your updates to info@scarabgenomics.com.

Scarab Genomics requests information primarily to provide you with superior service. Scarab Genomics may need information about you in order to provide specific services, such as the following:

Product notifications: Scarab Genomics may use your submitted personally identifiable information to provide to you product notifications, at your request.

Business transactions: Scarab Genomics may use your submitted personally identifiable information, order-related information and related correspondence to conduct an on-line business transaction, at your request.

Scarab Genomics secondary uses of information collected from you

Scarab Genomics may use information collected from you for secondary uses, such as the following:

Measure user interest in Scarab Genomics products and services: Scarab Genomics may perform statistical analyses on aggregate user demographics and behavior to measure interest in the different areas of a Scarab Genomics website or the various products or services offered by a Scarab Genomics website. To obtain statistics, Scarab Genomics collects your clickstream (the record of your traversal through a Scarab Genomics website).

Site improvement: Upon accessing a Scarab Genomics website, Scarab Genomics collects information, such as the browser you are using and the screen size you are using, to improve the content of the site, make your traversal through the site more efficient and tailor the content and layout of the site to your preferences.

Administration: Scarab Genomics collects your computer's IP address for the purposes of administration, such as monitoring the level of activity on a Scarab Genomics website and diagnosing problems with Scarab Genomics web servers.

URL prior to accessing a Scarab Genomics website: To enforce the Scarab Genomics Linking Policy, Scarab Genomics will collect the Uniform Resource Locator, or "URL," which is the address of the web site you last visited prior to accessing a Scarab Genomics website.

Cookies: In a very limited manner, Scarab Genomics uses cookies (small pieces of information Scarab Genomics web servers transmit to your computer) to allow Scarab Genomics web servers make your traversal through a Scarab Genomics website more efficient. For instance, Scarab Genomics may use cookies to remember items selected for order in an on-line business transaction in order to generate a total charge for the entire transaction. You may set a preference in your web browser to warn you every time a cookie is being sent or to turn off all cookies. (Please refer to the help page in your web browser to set up your cookie preferences.)

Surveys: Scarab Genomics may use your personally identifiable information to send you surveys regarding use of a Scarab Genomics website and Scarab Genomics various products and services.
