The Alcohol Experiment brought to you by This Naked Mind, LLC (inclusive of thisnakedmind.com and This Naked Mind™) is committed to protecting your privacy.
1.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION
1.1 What information we collect from you and how we use it
(a) Demographic and Personal Information. Demographic information collected from your profile (including, but not limited to, gender, age, country, state, Facebook information, postcode, university, and information about your alcohol consumption and wellbeing) may be used for statistical purposes, and generating reports for evaluating the TNM program.
(b) Email Address. When signing up on the website, the app, the online store or the e-newsletter, your email address will be stored on our database, for purposes such as identification, contacting you, sending surveys relating to your alcohol consumption and wellbeing, and sending out newsletters and special offers.
(c) Your Anonymity. When you register with TNM you will be required to supply your first and last names. It is strongly advised that when you choose your screen name, you use your first name only, or a nickname. Your full name, demographic information and email address will not be published by TNM on the site. This is for use by TNM as indicated in Sections 1.1(a) & 1.1(b).
(d) Linking your Profile to Social Media. When you complete your profile, you may choose to link your profile to your Facebook and/or your Twitter accounts. This is not a required step of completing your profile and all information supplied is by your choice only. Note that if you later choose to unlink your profile, traces of the link outside our control may remain elsewhere online and other users may still remember who you are.
We may not be able to fully provide our services without your personal information. For example, we may not be able to register you or contact you.
1.2 Disclosure of personal information
(a) Enforcement of Law. Occasionally, TNM may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide your Personal Information to the relevant bodies upon request. Upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or warrant, TNM will disclose your Personal Information to fully cooperate with any law enforcement investigations.
(b) Other Websites. The TNM site contains links to external websites. TNM is not responsible for the privacy practices of those websites. Please ensure that you are properly informed of other websites’ privacy practices before you disclose any personal information.
(c) TNM Personnel. Many of our tasks are performed with the assistance of our staff, contractors and volunteers, and we may share personal information with them.
(d) Service Providers. We may provide personal information about you to service providers who assist us with archival, auditing, accounting, evaluation, legal, business consulting, banking, website or technology services.
(e) Business Transfers. We may disclose your personal information to prospective purchasers of any interest in TNM or our assets.
1.3 Safeguarding your Personal Information
(a) Name. As previously stated in Section 1.1(c), TNM strongly suggests that you do not use your full name as your screen name when registering your TNM profile. This is in order to protect your privacy.
(b) Social Media. Should you wish to protect your personal details, TNM does not recommend you link your TNM profile to your Facebook and/or your Twitter accounts. As stated in Section 1.1(d), linking your TNM profile to your social media sites is not compulsory and is by your choice only.
(c) Blogs. By publishing a blog on the TNM website, it will be available for both TNM registered users, and the general public to read, and may be indexed by search engines.

You are responsible for changing your personal information when necessary. If you have problems with your profile, or updating your personal information, contact [email protected]
