Collection and Use of Personal Data

Thank you for visiting the Chinese Association for Laboratory Animal Science (CALAS) privacy policy. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for CALAS. CALAS is committed to protecting the privacy of authors, referees, and others who use its manuscript submission systems and journal websites (‘users’). We only collect the data necessary to allow for a high quality editorial process. These data are never shared with advertisers or other third parties not directly connected to CALAS. Minimal personal data are shared only with organizations such as site hosting, typesetting and publishing services necessary to fulfill the publishing mission of the Animal Models and Experimental Medicine (AMEM). All reasonable practices are followed to ensure the ongoing protection of author, referee, and user personal data that may be collected and used during article ingestion, review, editing, production processing, publication, posting, charging and delivery of information related to all aspects of publication operations.

Your use of the AMEM website and manuscript submission system indicates your acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

To enable the processing of papers submitted for editorial review, the AMEM collects personal data including author names, ORCID IDs, email addresses, affiliations, phone and fax numbers, and other details in order to accurately identify the authors. As the controller, CALAS has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed.

The terms noted below provide details of how personal data are collected and used for the express purposes of preparing and publishing content, which include but are not limited to reviewing, editing, processing, publishing, hosting, billing for, and indexing content as part of routine publishing processes, as well as online article purchasing services through secure measures. In using the AMEM site, as well as the dedicated submission system known as ScholarOne ManuscriptsTM, authors, referees, editors and users agree to the privacy terms stated below.

As an author, referee, or site user, if you have any objections to any of the policies noted herein, you should not use our journal sites or any related services, including the manuscript submission system related to our sites.
Specifics related to the collection and use of personal data:

• Personally identifiable information: The collection of author and referee details is required for accurate identification in the manuscript submission system, and is necessary for communication with editorial and production staff. Personal data collected at the time of submission are also used to register authors and referees for accounts within the submission system. Visitors to the journal sites may choose not to supply personally identifiable information, but this may prevent the use of some or all of the features and functionality of the sites. The use of the Internet pages of the AMEM is possible without indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
