Privacy Policy

Natural Science News operates the website, which provides informational content related to natural science research.

This document informs visitors regarding our policies on the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information for those who decide to use Natural Science News.


By using Natural Science News, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms.

Cookie and Data Storage Policy

Our website utilizes essential cookies critical for its functionality. These cookies facilitate operations such as security measures against cyber-attacks (e.g., CSRF attacks), managing newsletter subscription prompts, and improving user experience. Essential cookies are used exclusively for operational efficiency and security; they do not store personally identifiable information (PII) and are not employed for tracking purposes. Additionally, standard web request data, like IP addresses, may be collected for security monitoring and anonymized analytics, aiding in enhancing our services without compromising user privacy.

Newsletter Subscription

Age and Legal Compliance

Subscribers affirm they are 13 years of age or older and possess legal capacity to agree to this privacy policy under their residing jurisdiction. Our operations are global, and while based in Belize, we recognize our inability to pre-determine the policy's enforceability in every jurisdiction. Subscribers bear the responsibility to ensure their adherence is permissible under their local laws.

Consent Verification

To subscribe, users must consent through a double opt-in process. Initially, a user agrees to this policy and submits their email. Subsequently, a confirmation email is sent to verify ownership and consent. Should the confirmation step be incomplete, the provided email remains in our system with a 'Pending' status temporarily for security reasons. Only upon completing this process will the subscription be activated.

Email Communication Consent

Confirmed subscribers authorize us to send emails related to our content, offers, and promotional materials, including third-party advertisements. While we may facilitate these communications, endorsement of third-party products or services is not implied.

Data Usage

Subscription involves storing data like email activity and website interactions via cookies (including non-essential, first party and third party ones) or similar technologies for enhancing service quality and targeted marketing. You grant us the right to collect this data about you as part of your newsletter subscription.

Data Protection and Sharing

We uphold strict confidentiality and will not sell or indiscriminately share subscriber data. Authorized disclosures may occur for operational necessities or legal obligations, where we will aim to share only essential data. In rare instances, data may be shared with law enforcement upon lawful request, or voluntarily under serious circumstances, at our discretion.

Security Risks Acknowledgement

Whilst we take securing your data seriously, you must acknowledge the inherent risks of online data storage. In the unfortunate event of a data breach, we commit to cooperating with authorities and notifying affected users promptly, however you agree to hold us harmless and not liable for any damages that may arise from such a breach.

Subscription Cancellation and Data Deletion

Subscribers found to be under 13 will be immediately removed and their data deleted. Users may unsubscribe at any time via a direct link in our communications. Post-unsubscription, stored data will not be used for newsletter or marketing purposes. For complete data deletion, requests should be submitted from the registered email address to ensure user authentication.

To request data deletion, or to request an unsubscription in the event the unsubscribe link is not working within an e-mail that we have sent you, you may contact us via the contact method stipulated at the bottom of this privacy agreement.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies to facilitate our Service or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform specific tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links to Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to their site. We strongly advise reviewing the Privacy Policy of these websites as we have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content or practices of any third-party sites or services.

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy may be updated periodically. We advise you to review this page periodically for any changes. Any changes made will be posted on this page and are effective immediately.
