Abcam is committed to protecting your privacy. Any information we collect is stored on servers owned by Abcam which are held in physically secure locations and are protected by firewall and password based security measures.
The policy below sets out what information we collect, why we collect it and how we use that information.
Basic information gathered
When you browse an Abcam website, we establish a minimal “user profile” for you on the Abcam website which is tracked via a cookie (see ‘Cookies’ section below). This contains basic information such as how you first found us, IP address, and ISP host.
Statistical website usage information
We do this in order to understand what users are interested in on our website and to help us improve the design of our website or information offerings.
Cookies are very small text files saved to your computer that are used to track user navigation around a website. Cookies enable us to identify you or the device you are on when you have logged in.
This includes collecting standard information about visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the site and collect this information in a way which does not personally identify anyone.
We do not sell the information collected by cookies nor do we disclose information to third parties. When we want to collect personally identifiable information (for things like email sign ups), we will be explicit about this. Users have the ability to accept or disable cookies by modifying the settings in their browser. Disabling cookies, however may mean that some functionality may be affected.

Google place a unique ad-serving cookie on your computer and will use non-personal information about your browser and your activity at this site to serve ads on their content network. Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you. You can opt out here
Disclosure of personal information to third parties
Abcam respects your right not to be contacted unless you want to, and we do not sell, trade, give, or rent information that can identify you personally to any third party except as detailed below.
Abcam does use third parties in order to fulfil certain functions on its behalf. Examples of this are: in order to ship a package to you, we have to tell the shipping company your name and address and possibly phone/fax number we have commissioned market research and customer satisfaction surveys with sections of our customer base in these cases we only disclose the information necessary to perform that specific function.
