At USA Scientific®, Inc. your right to privacy and data security is a primary concern. We will not sell your personal information to third parties. Below are the guidelines we use for protecting the information you provide when you visit us.
We collect two types of information from you: information you voluntarily submit and information our site gathers automatically.
Information You Submit
The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with our company. We welcome everyone to search and use our site for free to locate scientific products available for purchase. If you plan to use our Shopping Cart and purchase products through our site, we ask you to fill in and submit our registration form so we can properly fill your order and collect payment.
Our registration form has required and non-required fields. You must provide some basic information to process your order. This includes contact information (name, company name, address, and phone number). When you submit information you are transferring the information into the United States and you here by consent to such transfer. When registering, you must also choose a password and enter an email address.
If you prefer to buy with a purchase order instead of a credit card, you may apply for credit with USA Scientific, Inc. If you do not already have an account with USA Scientific, Inc., you may click here to fill out our online application. You will be asked to provide credit references so your application can be fairly evaluated.
If you email us for any reason, the information in your email will only be used by USA Scientific. We may use your information to respond to you. We may also send you email confirming orders, updating order status, or other information that we believe would have value to you as a researcher, lab manager, purchaser, or any other user of laboratory products. Email not directly related to a request or an order will include a link to opt out at any time.
As you browse our web site, it collects log file, IP address, and other standard tracking data we use to evaluate site traffic and usage patterns. This information is aggregated with tracking data from all site visitors. We use aggregated information to help us evaluate products and services and provide a better website experience. We may also collect personally identifiable information regarding which pages you access on our site only. This helps us provide timely information on products or services that may be of interest to you. It is only used by USA Scientific and will not follow you to any other sites. It will not be sold, nor will it be combined with data from other sites that you visit.
Our site may use clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons) to help us manage content and inform us about what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
Uses of Information
The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with our company. We use your registration information to process your order(s) or to send you email about your orders. We may also email you promotional information, but you may opt-out of receiving advertising email from our site by contacting us at any time.
If you submit financial information to apply for an account with us, we use that information to verify your credit, open an account for you, and send you invoices for your purchases. If you submit credit card information, we use that information to collect payment for your orders.
USA Scientific, Inc. shares some of your information with third parties that may be involved in processing your order(s). For example, when you place an order through our site, we pass the order information along to the carrier that will be delivering your order. Only the data needed to fulfill and ship your order is released.
If you are ordering as part of a buying group or on a company account, we may share your registration and order information with others inside your company, such as personnel responsible for remitting payment, monitoring purchases, or receiving the order when it is delivered.
We may use third parties to assist us in providing email or other web services. We require that such third parties comply with our privacy policies and take appropriate confidentiality and security measures. We do not sell or give users' names or email addresses to other companies for marketing purposes. We may provide individually identifiable information to third parties in any case where it is required by law.
We may send you information about our various products we feel may be of interest to you. Only USA Scientific will send you these direct mailings. If you do not wish to receive such mailings you may contact us at any time to be removed from our mail list.
Currently, it is not possible for users of the USA Scientific website to permanently delete or deactivate their User Profile information from the database.
Security and Encryption

We use 256-bit SSL encryption and a secure server during certain parts of your visit to encrypt any information transmitted from your browser to our server and back again.
