Iterative Search recognizes that privacy is extremely important. Therefore, we do not record a user’s browsing history except for the pages that you flag, highlight, or annotate. Our servers are located in the United States of America.
Information We Collect
Iterative Search collects email addresses when you register for our service or otherwise voluntarily provide such information. For example, when you use the contact form to ask a question. We do not collect any personal information about the user.
Iterative Search does collect log type information to better serve our customers. These include the URL, IP address, browser type, language, and the date and time of your activity. This information is used to help the user begin where they left off and identify the last time they worked on their research.
If the user Flags a page, Iterative Search will connect that URL to the Flag to help the user manage their research for retrieval later during the session or at a later date.
If you choose to add notes to any page, Iterative Search logs those notes so that we may keep track and manage your research.
All of your research will be kept private unless you decide it share it with others by saving your research and forwarding onto another user who may open the search using the Iterative Search interface and the recipients account (if a registered user).
Log information is mainly used for analytics to understand our customers and keep our service efficient and available.
We may use your Flags, Highlights and Notes to help suggest additional areas that the user might find helpful in expanding their research.
No personal information will be used when suggesting additional areas of interest, only the information that is provided within the specific research workspace.
Iterative Search member accounts are secured by member-created passwords. Iterative Search takes precautions to insure that member account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
