Internet Privacy as Pertains to this Website
Updated: February 2012
DeahCurryPhD.com is vitally concerned with providing you with a pleasant, engaging, informative, and non-intrusive internet experience.
Type of Information Gathered and Stored
Due to the workings of internet technology and the needs for analyzing website traffic in order to continue improving the services provided on this site, and by the site owner, some personal information -- such as computer IP number, town and country you live in, browser or search engine used to get you here, pages you've visited, videos you've watched, articles you've downloaded, membership forum name and password if a forum is provided on the site, etc -- may be tracked and stored in a website statistics database. If you use the contact form to email Dr Curry or an opt-in form to request a digital product, your name and email address, and possibly your occupational category, may also be collected and stored. This type of data collection is standard for any website using traffic analysis technologies and autoresponder email programs.
You can be assured that your information is safeguarded as a sacred trust. Although Dr Curry or her assistants will have access to this information, your name and email will never be sold, bartered, shared with, or rented to any unauthorized third party.
How Your Info is Used
Information about the use of the site is looked at in terms of general patterns of interest and responsiveness, rather than as individual behavior. Just like other website owners, such information is used to retain or delete pages, features, and downloads, and to add new pages, features, downloads, and off-line services, based on viewer interest.
For example, your website visit pattern will combine with that of other visitors to show that 89% of visitors here live in North America, 63% of all visitors stay on the site for 15 minutes or more, move from the home page to the Fees / FAQ / Bio page, or that you're one of the 5% who come to the site from Bing, or part of the 40% who arrive from Google.
In addition, your info could be used by the webhost of this website -- Webstarts.com -- as needed for site administration, troubleshooting, and other tech support if necessary, or if you report a technical problem with your viewing of the site to us.
In all instances, you are assured that the information about and from you that is collected and stored is in accordance with all applicable laws and best internet standards and practices.
Privacy of Minors and Persons Deemed Psychologically Vulnerable
DeahCurryPhD.com cannot prevent minors, those who are psychologically vulnerable due to developmental disorders, dementia or other frailties of aging, or diminished intellectual capacity, or emotionally unstable persons from viewing this site.

Parents are responsible solely and exclusively for installing parental control functions on their internet browsers or firewall programs. This website does not solicit or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from or about minors.
