Because trichotillomania can be quite devastating, it is
common for people to be "in hiding" about their
symptoms, not wanting anyone to know about their behavior.
With this in mind, we have created a secure storage environment
for our subscriber data that is protected by both hardware
and software firewalls and housed on a dedicated server.
Personal, identifying information will not ever be accessible
to anyone at PsycTech, Ltd.
The authors of this program will, however, have access
to "bulk statistics" which are large amounts of
information, not tied to any individual, for the purpose
of program evaluation. For example, the authors will be
able to know on average, how many hairs subscribers pull
daily, or the most common part of the body from which people
pull, but will not know the identity of any of these individual
subscribers. It will also be important for the program designers
to see how hair pulling changes over time as subscribers
use the program and to "hear" any comments subscribers
have about the utility of the procedures described. This
information will help us broaden the base of knowledge about
trich, optimizing the utility of StopPulling.com, and to
help advance future treatments.
By taking part in StopPulling.com you are agreeing that
the anonymous information you provide to us can be used
in our efforts to evaluate and improve our program.
