  • We use cookies for a few reasons:
    • Allowing our systems to operate properly.
    • Remembering who you are when you return.
    • Providing usage data (depersonalized and shared in aggregate).
    • Collecting anonymous analytics via Google Analytics.
      • We use the paid version of Google Analytics so Google has no right nor access to the information about how you use ProQuest systems, and does not tie your usage on ProQuest to your Google ID.
  • We have implemented a Cookie Consent Manager that allows you to manage the cookies that we use before, during, and after your time on ProQuest sites.
  • You can always delete your cookies and get a fresh start.
  • See our Cookies and Similar Technologies page for more detail.


  • We want to give you ways to find out about our products and services.
  • We only use data that you explicitly give us permission to add to our marketing systems.
  • We don't buy lists from brokers.
  • Occasionally, we buy the right to use a contact list from a conference or other third party that you have opted into – and agreed to have your data released to companies like us.
    • We will only use lists from reputable providers.
  • You can always update your communication preferences, including opting out of marketing communications, using our Preference Center.
  • You will continue to receive operational communications from ProQuest related to the products and services you use or have an account for.
    • These will be notifications about outages, features, and new releases and will not be marketing-related.

Social Networks

  • If you use a social network, either directly or via a link within a ProQuest site, you will be subject to their privacy policy. We have no control over what they do with your information, so please check their privacy policies before using them to share information.
  • We may participate in re-marketing on social media sites or other advertising networks once you leave one of our public information websites. See our Cookies and Similar Technologies page for more detail.
