Privacy and Data Protection

Data Protection Act

User registration information is stored in a database, and is subject to the UK Data Protection Act. This gives individuals the right to examine the information that is held about them. Registered users may request this information below.


JCSE follows a number of principles that are designed to protect your privacy, while at the same time ensuring that others may not masquerade as you when posting comments.

It is required that you register to read papers in JCSE. The majority of the information that we request is necessary to validate your registration. Some additional information is used to assist us in developing JCSE for the future, or to offer you additional services

We make all reasonable efforts to maintain the security of your personal information, and to protect it from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

Subject to the choices that you make, we may use your personal information to send you various information by electronic or paper mail. This may include mail from commercial organizations with an interest in corrosion or related technologies. This will be done without releasing your personal information to other organizations, and you may choose not to be sent such information.

If you have any concerns that your personal information has not been handled in accordance with the above principles, please contact the Editor.

Cookies and Web Bugs

We use a cookie (a small piece of information stored on your computer) to hold temporary information about your session with the Journal (largely to avoid having to require you to log in for every page). The cookie does not record any personal information beyond you username. If you choose to disable cookies in your browser configuration we try to use an alternative, but less reliable, mechanism to retain username information, but you may find that you need to login repeatedly in this case. If you experience this problem, we suggest that you enable cookies, at least those that are returned to the server that originally sent them.

We may sometimes use a 'Web bug' (a small invisible image that is essentially used as a mechanism to send information back to the server) to track which pages are viewed. The only personal information that is sent back to our server is your IP address, which is recorded to identify where in the world accesses come from.

Google Advertising

We use Google to serve ads when you visit our website. Google may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Google uses the DoubleClick DART cookie to manage this information; you may obtain further information and, if you wish, opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.
