We respect the privacy of all Cytoscape users, and we do not collect any information on Cytoscape users except in the situations listed below. In no case do we attempt to tie any of this information back to a user, nor do we give, share, sell, or transfer this information to any third party unless required by law. We use this information only in the aggregate to generate statistics to assist in securing continued funding for Cytoscape.

  • On the Cytoscape download web page, we log the date, time, browser signature, and IP address to which we deliver Cytoscape.
  • For a news feed fetched for display on the Cytoscape Welcome screen, we log the date and time the news was fetched, the browser signature, and the IP address for the workstation running Cytoscape.

This policy may change from time to time, and if it does, we will notify you via the Cytoscape Welcome screen news feed and via our normal mass notification media. We will also update this section of the user manual.

Note that some internal Cytoscape Apps and Apps available through the Cytoscape App Store connect with third party services via the Internet. Once an App links to such a service, you are subject to the privacy policy of that service.
