Terms of Use


Protecting your privacy is important to Home Science Tools. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.

Why we collect personal information
Home Science Tools collects and uses your personal information to serve you before and after your purchase. We use your contact information and preferences to keep you up to date on product announcements, offers, science teaching tips, company news, and other information we think you'd like to learn about. When you request information about a product, a customer service representative will contact you to follow-up on your inquiry. We may also use your personal information to contact you about participating in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better products.

How we collect personal information
We might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase or request service, register on our web site, request a product catalog, ask a question of our Frequently Asked Question database, or participate in an online survey. When you ask to be included in an email mailing list, such as subscribing to our company newsletter, we also collect your personal information.

To save you time and make our web services easier to use, we may make your personal information accessible to multiple web sites operated by Home Science Tools. That means that if you register with one web site, you can sign-in to all web sites operated by Home Science Tools. Changes made to your contact information or personal preferences from any of our sites will result in a change being made to our centralized, secure, customer database.

When we disclose personal information
Your personal information may be shared within the Home Science Tools organization, including with our customer service representatives. These customer service representatives will protect your personal information in accordance with this Home Science Tools Customer Privacy Policy.

With your permission, we may refer you to other independent organizations that can provide you a complementary or superior product or service.

Home Science Tools works with other companies that help us provide you with products and services. We may provide your contact information to these companies. For example, we give shipping companies this information so they can deliver your products. The information they receive is for shipping and delivery purposes only.

Home Science Tools has also partnered with Science Buddies to provide hands-on science resources. If you order a licensed Science Buddies kit, Home Science Tools will share your basic customer information with Science Buddies.

At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information.

How we protect your personal information
Home Science Tools safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and internal management procedures.
