Privacy and Anti-Spam Policies
Note: these policies only apply to the mailing lists and membership information
of StopBadTherapy.com. Mailing lists of other organizations (such as the
False Memory Syndrome Foundation, whose news and research lists we link
to) are governed by those organizations' policies. (As a practical matter,
the FMS Foundation doesn't release people's contact information without
their prior consent, and they don't spam people with direct marketing or
send an unreasonable volume of email--I subscribe myself!--but in the spirit
of full disclosure, we want to emphasize that the below policies only apply
to our own lists.)
Anti-Spam Policy of StopBadTherapy.com
We will not ever release any identifying or contact information
about members of this organization, visitors to this site, and subscribers
to our mailing list (including but not limited to name, email address,
phone number, fax number, and mailing address) to anyone for any purpose.
We will only retain your email address if you subscribe to
our mailing list, become a member of the organization, or contact the webmaster
directly. (If you click the tally button, we will see your email address,
but we won't retain it. We'll just add to our tally and delete the email
message. If you are uncomfortable about this, either temporarily change
your return email address to a fake address [using your browser's Identity
preferences] before you send the message, or just don't participate in
About Privacy on the Internet
address to anyone for any purpose, so joining our mailing list or the organization
will not cause you to receive spam from other organizations or companies.
Messages from StopBadTherapy.com will always contain instructions
on how to remove yourself from the mailing list. We will promptly remove
you from the list if you so request.
We will not waste your time with a flood of pointless email
messages. We will only send you email when we have something of consequence
In the spirit of full disclosure, we should point out that
when you send unencrypted electronic mail to us, government officials,
or anyone else, your email address is being transmitted "in the clear"
(i.e. in readable form) over the public Internet and could in theory be
read by someone who was monitoring a server along the way. In practice,
this is more of a theoretical risk than a real problem because:
a typical email travels only about six minutes before it
no one can predict what path a given email will follow across
If you are nonetheless worried about this risk, send a letter
instead of an email.
