Privacy at Elsevier
You can use most of our products without creating a personal Elsevier account and signing in. Registering allows you to use personalized services that provide additional value to your experience. We continually make efforts to remain transparent about the personal data associated with your Elsevier account and the privacy options available to you.
The value of a personal account
Many of our services utilize account activity data (like searching, reading and library building) to deliver further value. For example, reading history and saved searches make it easier to find information again; email alerts help keep you up to date on topics of interest; and personalized recommendations can direct you to content you might otherwise miss. Thus, a personal Elsevier account helps you be more efficient and productive with your research time.
Transparency about personal data
We are committed to being transparent about what personal data we have and how it is used. Furthermore, we are determined to ensure that your privacy options are clear and easy to find.
Choices about privacy options
We aim to keep the choices about the collection, use and sharing of your personal data in your hands. We are working to deliver even higher levels of control than are currently available for each product.
