Elsevier Privacy Principles

At Elsevier, we recognize that the proper handling of personal data is very important to our customers and the communities we serve. We are committed to behaving with integrity and responsibility regarding data privacy. We support the right of individuals to manage how their personal information is collected and used. Our Privacy Principles guide our approach to collecting and handling personal data:

  • Value: We carefully use personal data to help us support customers and individual users through customization/personalization options in our products to inform product development, monitor the performance our systems, ensure data security, and to comply with our legal and contractual obligations.

  • Transparency: We tell users about the personal information we collect, including how and why we will use and share it.

  • Choice: Users are given choice over the collection, use and sharing of their personal information.

  • Anonymization: We depersonalize and aggregate personal information where individual identification is not necessary.

  • Accountability: We are committed to acting as a responsible steward of personal information.

Supporting our customers and users

Elsevier has developed powerful online tools that are tailored to meet the needs of individual users and to handle personal data responsibly. Data can be leveraged to deliver tremendous value to our customers and community of users. The volume of science, technical, and medical materials available today means it’s vital that researchers and professionals can access the information they need quickly and easily. Whether you are an undergraduate, a principal investigator, a nurse practitioner, or a medical doctor, our products and services are designed to help you work as efficiently and effectively as possible.

For example, Article Recommender in ScienceDirect suggests articles that are relevant to the individual user based on what they’re reading. To make these recommendations, data from millions of other researchers who’ve read the same article is anonymized, aggregated and analyzed in milliseconds, resulting in suggestions that save that person a significant amount of time.

We can deliver these highly-optimized solutions thanks to the ability to combine our own information with user data. This not only benefits the individual researcher or professional but also their colleagues and institutions and, ultimately, society.

Elsevier is committed to the highest data privacy and security standards when delivering these solutions.

Elsevier and legal compliance

As a leading provider of information and analytics, Elsevier has long recognized the importance of data privacy protection. Elsevier’s data privacy program, established over 15 years ago and led by our Data Protection Officer, is global and holistic in scope. Data privacy governance is supported by a cross-functional council of senior leaders from across Elsevier as well as by the RELX Privacy Office.

Elsevier views compliance with emerging privacy laws as building on this commitment to responsible data privacy practices. As part of our data privacy program, we evaluate, and where necessary require enhancements to, our products, services and practices to ensure that we treat personal data in line with applicable privacy laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and with what the community expects of us.
