Privacy and Security


I believe very strongly in the right of all individuals to keep information about themselves to themselves. Increasingly we seem to be giving away more and more of our privacy of our own accord! Big brother is already watching us – but it is because we invited him to!For example, every time you use your credit card you give away information about where you were, at what time, what shop you were in, and what you bought. From this the credit card company, or anyone they sell or give that information to, can build up a whole profile of your lifestyle. It may seem insignificant, but add that to all the other information that people are collecting about you and you quickly realize your life is no longer only your affair!

This may or may not be of concern to you. In either case, I can assure you that I will not be adding to the problem. My formal Privacy Policy (which my lawyer requires me to have) is written out below. Here are some additional points that will probably be of interest to you:

Shopping Security

All orders are processed by PayPal and Psigate, two of the world’s leading e-commerce companies, using state of the art encryption, secure servers, and fraud detection. We use them as they are able to offer much higher levels of security than we, as a small company, could possibly provide. You can have full confidence that all information you enter, such as your credit card details are entirely safe.

Email Security

Emails that you send are like postcards – anything you write in them can be viewed by anyone who cares to look. Obviously it takes a bit of programming know how to intercept people’s emails, but it can, and is, being done. Of course, with billions of emails whizzing around it is unlikely that someone will pick on yours – unless you are including obvious info like credit card numbers. But be especially careful if you are emailing from work – the chances are that you are going through their server and all your emails will be saved somewhere on the system. They may well be read to make sure that you are working at work, instead of doing private correspondence!

Please note: by writing to me you are accepting the following conditions:

Whatever is sent to me by ordinary email is like sending a postcard – anyone could, conceivably, read it, although they probably won’t. If you are concerned about this, either use encryption, or just omit the sensitive details.

In writing to me you are giving me permission to publish the material, either on this website or in print. I in turn will make every effort to anonymize the materials (e.g. changing names) but cannot guarantee that your friends won’t recognize you in it! Again, if you are worried, change some of the details yourself.

In addition to posting my reply on this site, I will also try to reply to you personally. Not every letter will be published on the site, nor can I guarantee a personal response to every email.

I cannot engage in lengthy correspondence on any particular topic, nor can my replies be relied upon as medical advice tailored for your specific situation, they are merely suggestions based on the very limited information that you provide me.

In busy periods, I may not be able to reply to every letter sent to me, although I will certainly try to. Before you write, please read the articles and questions already on the site, and perhaps my book, to see if any of them answer your questions.

Hopefully I haven’t scared you off will all that legal stuff – but in this day and age we do need to be clear about these things.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Javascript

The website does use Javascript in order to make it easier to use. These scripts do not take over your computer – all they do is to control the way the web pages are displayed to you. Javascript can do things like reading your computer’s clock to display today’s date, and determining the type of browser you are using, and the screen size. But it cannot read your hard drive and send me, or anyone else, information from your files.

If you are concerned about people getting access to your hard drive, the one to watch out for is “Active-X”. In the wrong hands that can be truly malicious. My site does not use Active-X.

Cookies

There is even more misinformation about cookies. Cookies are simply small text files that are sent from the web server to your computer. They carry the identity of the web server from whence they came (e.g. us) and can be read by Javascript. This means that the Javascript can tell if you already have a cookie from us, which would indicate that you have been to this site before. They don’t carry viruses, and they can’t run any programmes – they are just simple text files. To see which cookies you have at present, simply do a search (Find Files) on your computer, looking for “cookies”. Any that you find can be read with Notepad or any other text editor.

My site does use cookies to make it more user friendly, and to process shopping orders. For more details see the Privacy Policy below.

Disclaimer

This site has been designed to provide information for educational purposes only. All the information is presented in good faith and in the belief that it is correct and accurate according to the state of current knowledge. I accept no liability for any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. (However, if you find any, please do tell me so that I can correct them).

Since I have never met you, and know nothing about you, I do not have a doctor-patient relationship with you. This being the case, nothing on this site is to be interpreted as medical or financial advice, nor can I be held accountable or liable for anything that you do with the information from this site. This also applies to suggestions that I make in reply to emails from you. Such suggestions are my good faith responses to the limited information that you send me and are not to be construed as medical or financial advice.

If you need specific advice for your own personal situation, you should seek help from a properly qualified practitioner, such as a doctor, psychologist, independent financial advisor, or other registered professional.

ABOUT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND HOW IT IS USED

This website routinely collects information about its visitors, subscribers, members, and customers. This information is obtained in various ways, such as:

VISITOR, SUBSCRIBER, MEMBER, OR CUSTOMER INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ‘REGISTRATION’

Registration means that the Visitor, Subscriber, Member or Customer takes active, positive steps to communicate information to this website. This can include pages or ‘pop ups’ where you register for a newsletter or subscribe to a mailing list; it can include your participation in visitor surveys; it can include requesting information from the website via email, mail, or courier; it may be from joining an affiliate program or other membership organization, paid or unpaid; it may be from ordering a product.

Occasionally complete credit card information may be provided to the website via fax or a fill-in form rather than regular secure merchant service processing. This information is kept at the highest level of security and is never divulged to anyone except the merchant service provider or for the purpose of communication with the customer.

ONLINE ORDERING

Online ordering via SSL encrypted communication provided by shopping cart services supporting merchant service companies like Visa and Master Card provides information to the website but does not provide complete credit card numbers. In the process of online ordering, the customer provides, name, address, city, state, email address, phone number, CVV2 (back of card) number, and, occasionally a member password. You should consider all this information available to the website. This information is used to deliver the product, but under the Purchase Agreement you also approve its use for general solicitation purposes.

VISITOR EMAIL ENQUIRIES

Website visitors who wish to communicate with the website do so under two conditions: one, they give their permission for contact by the website; two, they are subject to any €˜submission €™ provisions of the Terms of Use, Purchase Agreement, or this Privacy Policy. While your email address may or may not be used to solicit you, it is added to the website’s general solicitation database.

CUSTOMER EMAIL OR TESTIMONIALS

If you are a customer and send an email to the website, or if you communicate with the site by phone or mail, the website collects information about your communication and by communicating with the site you give your permission to collect, archive, retrieve, and otherwise use any information collected as the site sees fit.

Any communication which, in its sole discretion, the site deems to be a testimonial, may be publicized for commercial purposes.

INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM VISITOR INTERACTION WITH BANNERS, POPUPS, OR SITE ADVERTISERS

INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ELECTRONIC MEANS AND ‘COOKIES’

You must assume that your web-viewing or web-use activity is monitored, tracked, and information collected. This information is not usually of a personal nature, but it may help define your viewing habits and product preferences even though the website may or may not have any idea who you are.

“Cookies” is web jargon for bits of computer code placed on your hard drive. Websites use this to keep you ‘logged in’, to keep track of search criteria, to monitor use, to password protect use of the site or use of products sold by the site. Cookies can also be used to obtain information about your computer configuration or your use of your computer.

Cookies can be used to electronically gather information about you. Again, it may or may not be personal information, but it is information and by using this site you are expressly giving permission to use ‘cookies’ and to use the information gathered from their use to benefit you. You also give permission to collect, archive, retrieve, and use any information collected for product design, product offers to you, and general commercial solicitation purposes by this site or joint venture partners, affiliates, and marketing organizations.

This type of shared information may include your name, address, phone number, email address and buying habits, as well as other information.
