Privacy at Elsevier

You can use many of our online services and solutions without registering for a personal Elsevier account and signing in. Registering enables the use of personalized services that provide additional value by enabling more effective work. We continually strive 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 additional value. For example, reading histories 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 have a commitment to remaining transparent about what of your personal data we have and how it is used. Furthermore, we strive to ensure that your privacy options are clearly communicated and easy to find.

Choices about privacy options

We're committed to keeping 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 service or solution.
