Your privacy is important to me, and so I’ve adapted this privacy policy from a number of other privacy policies that I’ve seen on the web that seemed reasonable to me.

When you visit the quit guru, the web server collects certain information about you during your visit.

Like most other web sites, this site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see next paragraph) and web server logs to collect information about how the site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the site, and the web sites visited just before and just after this web site, and your ip address.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

IP addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically sent to web servers so they know where to send the data (such as web pages) that you requested.

Email information

If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and my responses. I will not sell, rent, or give away your email address to any third party for any reason, and I take reasonable precautions to make sure that your email address can’t be stolen, either.

How do I use the information that you provide to me?

I only use visitors’ personal information for the purpose it was given to me: in other words, if you use my contact form, it requires you to enter an email address. If you want a response, I may use your email address to respond to you. (Of course, if you’re rude to me, I may also choose not to respond to you at all.)

What I won’t do with your email, or any other personal information you choose to share with me, is give it to any third party, for any reason (unless I am legally compelled to do so, and even then, I won’t give it up willingly, and I’ll do my best to give you fair warning of what’s going on).

A special note about children

Children are not likely to use my web site, but if you’re under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to me. Feel free to leave an anonymous comment on the blog and I’ll be happy to respond, but if you’re a minor, you should use this site only in conjunction with permission and guidance from a parent or guardian.

How do i protect your information?

You probably know that email is not a secure medium of communication, and, for this reason, I ask that you do not send private information to me by email that you would not want seen by some other party. if you do choose to send me personal information, understand that you do so at your own risk.

I may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, the site also uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Policy changes

I reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time with or without notice. however, please be assured that if the privacy policy changes in the future, I will not use the personal information you have submitted to me under this privacy policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this privacy policy, without your prior consent.

If you have any questions about this policy, or any part of my web site, please contact me.
