privacy policy

As a rule, Archemind does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information; exceptions may include trusted third parties assisting our website and business operations, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. For example, User registration requires that all secure payment transactions be conducted by PayPal in accordance with the PayPal privacy policy and Terms of Service, as presented to the User by PayPal during the checkout process. Archemind may also be obliged to release your information in order to comply with local, state, and federal laws, to enforce our site policies, or to protect the rights, the property, or the safety of employees, vendors, users, or other associates.


Archemind is not responsible for the content of external web sites to which you may be directed at your discretion—e.g., university websites and publishing aggregators that host academic papers to which we refer by hypertext link. Many such external sites require either individual login or institutional subscription; all other Internet sites or services that may be accessible through such links have separate data and privacy practices independent of Archemind, and as such, we disclaim any responsibility or liability for their contents, policies, and actions.


Archemind.net uses cookies. A “cookie” is a small data text file that is placed in your browser and allows Archemind.net to recognize you each time you visit this site. Use of cookies allows the User to opt for persistent login to those areas restricted to User Subscriptions, including the User Forum and the Mind Modeler, by selecting the “remember me” checkbox at login. Cookies may also be used by 3rd party providers such as newsfeeds and web traffic analytics. Archemind does not use cookies to collect personal information, and cookies themselves do not contain any personal information.


In compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Archemind website, including contents, products, and services are directed to individuals who are at least 13 years of age or older.
