Effective: 1st January, 2023

Thanks for using Scholarly! Here we describe how we collect, use, and handle the personal data of Scholarly users, both current and former, when you use our website, software, and services (“Services”).

When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this policy

“Services” means products, services, content, features, technologies, or functions, and all related websites, applications and services offered to you by Scholarly in connection with your account.

What & Why

We collect and use the following information to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services.

  • Account information: We collect, and associate with your account, the information you provide to us when you do things such as sign up for your account, and set up two-factor authentication (like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, and physical address).
  • Your Stuff: We store, process, and transmit your Stuff as Identification Information; your name, street address, email address, date of birth, social security number or other government-issued verification numbers.
  • Contacts: You may choose to give us access to your contacts to make it easy for you, to do things like share and collaborate on Your Stuff, send messages, and invite others to use the Services. If you do, we’ll store those contacts on our servers.
  • Usage information: We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account (like sharing, editing, viewing, creating and other transactions). We use this information to provide, improve, and promote our Services, and protect our users.
  • Device information: We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services. For example, we use device information to detect abuse and identify and troubleshoot bugs. We also may collect Geolocation Information If you do not agree to our collection of this information, you may not be able to use our Service.
  • Cookies and other technologies: We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. If our systems receive a DNT signal from your browser, we’ll respond to that signal. We may also use third-party service providers that set cookies and similar technologies to promote our services.
  • Analytics: When you use the app, we collect information including your identifying and device information, such as email addresses, IP addresses, and device identifiers of devices you use to view the content. We also collect information on how you interact with the viewed content, such as the date and time you view the content, the number of times and length of time you view the content, and which portions of the content you view.
  • Marketing: If you register for our Services, we will, from time to time, send you information about upgrades/updates when permissible. Users who receive these marketing materials can opt out at any time. We may also collect information from you if you interact with Scholarly representatives at an event, download marketing or educational materials from our website, or contact a Scholarly representative. We may use the information you provide to send you additional marketing materials.
  • Social Web Information: including but not limited to your Facebook Connect credentials and email account information. If you authorize Facebook Connect, the plug-in allows us access to your email address, Facebook friends list, and public profile (including profile picture). We may also allow you to import data from other social web services, including but not limited to Twitter and email service providers. Social and e-mail contact information helps you connect to friends and contacts for invitation and payment transmission purposes (as well as helping us improve the Services and fight fraud).
  • Financial Information: bank account online login information, bank account and routing numbers and cards linked to your account. Scholarly does not share financial information with third-party social networking services.

    Finally, we may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with our customer support team or store results when you respond to a survey.
  • Bases for processing your data. We collect and use the personal data described above in order to provide you with Services in a reliable and secure manner. We also collect and use personal data for our legitimate business needs. To the extent we process your personal data for other purposes, we ask for your consent in advance or require that our partners obtain such consent.

With Whom

We may share information as discussed below, but we won’t sell it to advertisers or other third parties.

  • Others working for and with Scholarly: Scholarly uses certain trusted third parties (for example, providers of customer support and IT services) for the business purposes of helping us provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. These third parties will access your information to perform tasks on our behalf, and we’ll remain responsible for their handling of your information per our instructions.
  • Other Scholarly Companies: Scholarly shares infrastructure, systems, and technology with other Scholarly Companies to provide, improve, protect, and promote Scholarly Company Services. We process your information across the Scholarly Companies for these purposes, as permitted by applicable law and in accordance with their terms and policies.
  • Other users: with your consent or at your direction to do so, including if you authorize an account connection with a third-party account or platform.
  • Law & Order and the Public Interest: We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

    1. comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or appropriate government request;
    2. protect any person from death or serious bodily injury;
    3. prevent fraud or abuse of Scholarly or our users;
    4. protect Scholarly’s rights, property, safety, or interest; or
    5. perform a task carried out in the public's interest.

Stewardship of your data is critical to us and a responsibility that we embrace. We believe that your data should receive the same legal protections.


  • Security: We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like two-factor authentication, encryption of files at rest, and alerts when new devices and apps are linked to your account. We deploy automated technologies to detect abusive behaviour and content that may harm our Services, you, or other users.
  • User Controls: You can access, amend, download, and delete your personal information by logging into your Scholarly account and going to your account settings page.
  • Retention: When you sign up for an account with us, we’ll retain the information you store on our Services for as long as your account exists or as long as we need it to provide you with the Services. If you delete your account, we’ll initiate the deletion of this information after 30 days. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and backup storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.

Your Control and Access of Your Data

You have control over your personal data and how it’s collected, used, and shared. For example, you can:

  • Delete Your Stuff in your Scholarly account.
  • Change or correct personal data. You can manage your account and the content contained in it, as well as edit some of your personal data, through your account settings page.
  • Access and take your data elsewhere. You can access your personal data from your Scholarly account and you can download a copy of Your Stuff in a machine-readable format. You can also ask us for a copy of personal data you provided to us or that we’ve collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting it, the types of sources we got it from, and the types of third parties we’ve shared it with.
  • Object to the processing of your personal data. Depending on the processing activity, you can request that we stop or limit the processing of your personal data.


If we’re involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition, or sale of our assets, your data may be transferred as part of that deal. We’ll notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time and will post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you.
