Privacy Policy

Effective Date: June 3, 2021

The Bjorkman Lab at Caltech has established this Privacy Policy to explain what information we collect through the website and how it is used. We do not sell visitor information, and we do not share visitor information without prior consent except as compelled by law.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

The term "personally identifiable information" means individually identifiable information about an individual collected online by a site operator from that individual and maintained by the operator in an accessible form.

We do not collect personally identifiable information about visitors to the website other than the visitor's IP address.

No Cookies & No Analytics

We do not use persistent or session ID cookies on our website and do not engage in any form of advertising that tracks your Internet movements. Furthermore, we do not use Google Analytics or any third-party analytics service designed to monitor and track consumer behavior.

Automatically Collected Information

Web server logs collect and store certain system-related information automatically. This information includes:

This information is used to help us make our site more useful for you. With this data, we learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. The information collected may be used in aggregate to inform decisions about website content and structure. It may also be used for troubleshooting purposes, or to detect and investigate abuse. With the exception of abuse investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.

Comments Sent by Email

You may choose to provide us with personal information, for example in an email containing your comments or questions. We may use this information to improve our service to you or to respond to your request.


We may make changes to this privacy policy, consistent with its respect for visitor privacy, and those changes will be posted in a revised Privacy Policy that will show a new effective date and the date of the superseded notice. Visitors should periodically review this notice for updates.
