Privacy Policy

Effective as of 17 June 2017

This Online Privacy Statement describes how we treat user data collected during your visit to the Peaceful Pill Handbook site. The Peaceful Pill Handbook site is www.peacefulpill.com or peacefulpillhandbook.com, and includes all web pages whose domain name contains peacefulpill.com. This is not the online privacy statement for other Exit International websites that don’t contain these domain names. Neither is it the online privacy statement for other websites (e.g. blogs or social networking sites) where Exit has a presence, such as the Peaceful Pill forums.

Privacy and the Internet

The Internet, generally speaking, is not currently a private place. As you visit websites, use search engines, and conduct business on the Internet, many different companies and organizations are gathering information about your online behavior by tracking your searches, visits, and transactions, and then by matching that data with other information about you. There are some things you can do to prevent your information from being collected.  A good need-to-know summary is published by the ACLU. You can read this at: Easy Steps Everyone Can Take to Protect Their Digital Privacy

Exit International USA takes many steps to protect your privacy when you visit the Exit International USA website. In order to provide you with a better experience while you are on the Peaceful Pill Handbook Site, we do allow some tracking to take place. How and when we do so is explained below.

Our Collection and Use of Information About You

Passively Collected Data

Like most websites, we may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser when you visit peacefulpill.com. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and the referring URL.

We use this type of information to measure and improve the performance of our site.  On occasion we also access this type of information to investigate or maintain the stability and security of our site.

Voluntarily Submitted Data

Certain pages on the Peaceful Pill site may invite you to share personally identifying information, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number.  Sharing that information will allow you to purchase a book or online book subscription or join our email list.

We may use that voluntarily submitted data to:

  • Fulfill your orders or transactions.
  • Contact you about other Exit activities or news, or about opportunities to support Exit International.

Sharing of Information

Exit International USA may share your information with Exit International in Australia. No other sharing of data takes place with third parties in any other country at any time.

Our Email List

If you sign up for our email list, we may collect data by using an embedded image to track whether you open our email and by using a URL that enables us to identify that you have taken an action, such as clicking a link in an email.

This allows us to build more effective communication and to inform you about Exit International USA activities.

Our Use of Cookies

We may use cookies to improve website performance, to remember user preferences and settings, and to collect analytic data. By “cookies” we mean small text files placed on to your computer by websites you visit.

“Cookies” may also refer to local storage, which is a mechanism similar to cookies where the information is stored within your web browser. We may use cookies as an improvement element in website performance.

Analytics

We use analytics tools that place cookies, in order to give us a better understanding of how people engage with our website.  That in turn allows us to gauge the current performance of Website features, and to develop better content. Analytics cookies provide us with information like:

  • How many individual visitors we have
  • How many visitors are new or returning
  • How often visitors come to the website
  • What content they’ve visited
  • How visitors interact with particular pages or content

How Certain Content Hosts May Place Cookies and Gather Information About You

Our site is connected in a variety of ways to content residing on other platforms.  We provide links to content on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

Our site also features embedded media, such as videos, that are hosted on other platforms (such as YouTube) but viewable directly through the buttons we provide.  When you click on links or buttons for any of these types of external content, the providers of that content may place their own cookies on your computer, access existing cookies that were set when you previously visited other websites, or otherwise gather information about you as you access their content.

To learn about how those content hosts treat the data they collect through cookies and otherwise, see their respective online privacy policies and other posted guidance.

Security Measures and Data Transmission

We have taken physical, electronic, and managerial measures to safeguard the information we collect. We work to ensure data accuracy and protect against unauthorized access to, and improper use of, information we collect online.

Information that can be readily linked to you personally, such as your name and address, is stored on secure servers and is not publicly accessible.

Additionally, all data transmitted to and from our website, including credit card numbers, are encrypted using industry standard measures to provide an additional level of security.

Procedure When We Update This Statement

Our privacy statement may change from time to time. We will post privacy statement changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice on our website.

Procedure for Updating Your Personal Information or Preferences

If you wish to withdraw or change personal information you shared with us previously or adjust personal preferences — such as your preferences regarding email lists — you may contact us to update our records.
