Ovid's Internet Privacy Policy

Ovid is committed to respecting the privacy of our customers and individual users who access our Website and databases via the Internet. We do not sell any customer information and only share limited customer information with relevant information providers, our sales agents, and distributors. Ovid does not share the information stated directly below with these third parties.

We currently track database usage, page visits, searches, and documents viewed for the purposes of:

  • Providing aggregated statistical information to our institutional customers and information providers,
  • Monitoring compliance with our license terms, and
  • Determining the effectiveness of the user interface, content coverage, and system functioning.

There will be occasions when you initiate contact with Ovid and you volunteer information about yourself through our Website or by email. For instance, if you download software from our website, you will be giving us information about your role as representative of your institution. Additionally, when you initiate contact with Ovid through our Website or by email, you will of course be supplying us with information about what your concerns are, as well as how to contact you. Ovid, its sales agents, and distributors may want to use the information you give us to respond to you and to continue to contact you in the future. If you do not want to be contacted by Ovid or our business partners, you can choose to "opt out" of future communications, and Ovid will endeavor to respect your wishes.

Some Ovid web pages use the common tracking device called "cookies," which are small files that our web server automatically requests your computer to place on its hard disk to help us remember what your preferences are. Cookies can make your subsequent visits to our web site simpler and more seamless. These cookies do not give us any information with which we could personally identify you. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

Ovid may change this privacy policy. When we do, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. If you have any questions or comments about our privacy practices, or you want to stop receiving information from Ovid or correct any information you have provided to us, please contact us at
