General

Our Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide via the Quirkology website. Whenever you use this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Ways that we collect information

Some areas of the site require you to actively submit information in order for you to benefit from specific features (such as our online experiments). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Some of this information may be personal (information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, email address, phone number etc.).

We only collect such information when you choose to supply it to us.

Information may also gathered without you actively providing it, through the use of various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer).

We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and to administer and improve the site.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored locally on your computer and contains information about your activities on the Internet. On our website, we may use cookies to track users' progress through the site, allowing us to make improvements based on usage data. The information in a cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information you submit to our site.

Web Statistics

We use log files generated by our web servers and Google Analytics to analyze site usage and statistics but the files do not identify any personal information. Log file analysis helps us to understand usage patterns on our website and to make improvements.

Disclosure

Except as otherwise stated, we may use information you provide via this site to improve the content, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Statement. We do not disclose any information you provide via the site to any third parties except where:

  • Such disclosures are necessary to fulfil our service obligations to you in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
  • Required by applicable laws, courts orders, or government regulations (for example to prevent or detect crime).
  • You give us permission to do so.

This site contains links and references to other websites. Please be aware that this Privacy Statement does not apply to those websites and we encourage you to read the Privacy Statement of every website you visit.

Notification of changes to our Privacy Statement

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Statement at any time. This Privacy Statememt was last updated September 2007.
