Privacy Pledge

irt.org believes that strong electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial, and entertainment medium.

We pledge that irt.org will not release your personal data to anyone else without your consent.

When we do present information to our advertisers, unless you tell us otherwise, it is in the form of aggregate statistics compiled among all our visitors' answers to survey questions as well as grouped on-site behavior.

Document Use

The restrictions on the use of irt.org are fairly relaxed:


Requests for purchase, let or hire of any part of irt.org in any format (electronic, paper etc) must be made to the author of the relevant item.


As part of our ongoing effort to provide the best in content to you, the user, irt.org has outlined the following information to address online privacy and consumer protection:

We do NOT share e-mail addresses, obtained via communcation with visitors to irt.org, with anyone.

We make no effort to identify public users of irt.org. No identifying data is disclosed to any third party for any purpose. Data that we collect is used only for server administration and Web protocol research.

While we will strive to deliver content and advertising that are specifically relevant to you, our pledge is that irt.org, will not release personal data to anyone else without consent. If others want this information, including your name or your email address, only you can choose to give it to them.

As is typical, we log http requests to our server. This means that we know the originating IP (e.g. address of an agent requesting a URL, the visitor's domain name, referral data, and browser and platform type. We do not log the specific identity of visitors. We occasionally analyze the log files to determine which files are most requested. Our logging is passive; we do not use technologies such as cookies to maintain any information on users.

We also count, track and aggregate the visitors activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at irt.org. To these ends, we may merge information about you into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregates basis with our advertisers; but irt.org will not disclose your individual identity or personal data without your permission. When irt.org does present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify you or contact you.

We also log requests to our search, CGI, and list maintenance services. This data is only used for administration and researching the efficiency of our tools.

Logged information is not disclosed outside of irt.org staff personnel. Aggregate (completely non-identifying) statistics generated from these logs may be reported as part of research results.
