3. Data security

How we keep your data safe.

3.1. I understand and agree that Self-Rewiring.org will do as much as reasonably possible to guard against loss and theft of my data, but Self-Rewiring.org will not be liable for any data loss or theft.

3.2. I understand and agree that all saved sessions data and personal notes stored on the website is securely encrypted using my own password as the encryption “key”, and that a ‘salt’ of my password, in turn, is also kept encrypted in the database; this means that the owners and operators of Self-Rewiring.org cannot read my session data or personal notes.

3.3. I understand and agree that for purely technical reasons the administrators of the website can, when necessary, see my name, my e-mail address, the total number of sessions I have stored, the status of the sessions (in progress, planned, or completed), the total number of tags I have stored, the total amount of data I have stored, when my account was created, when my account was last accessed, my password hint, my website preferences, and whether I am subscribed to the monthly e-mail update.

3.4. I understand and agree that backups of my encrypted data saved to the Self-Rewiring.org website are securely held for a maximum of 2 years, and after this time they are deleted.

I understand and agree that if I wish to receive a copy of all of my data held at Self-Rewiring.org, I may make this request via e-mail to and I will receive my data within 28 days and that it will be provided as raw, encrypted binary data because Self-Rewiring.org has no record of my plain-text password (only recording a “salt” of the password) and therefore cannot decrypt the data for me.

3.10. I understand that everything I put into my account will remain private and will never be publicly available through the Self-Rewiring website.

3.11. I understand and agree that I will only use my account on the website to store data relevant to the practising of the therapy, and if my account is found to be used for other purposes (or is suspected of being used for other purposes), such as for storing other data, or any kind of binary data, I will be in breach of these terms and conditions and my account may be suspended or deleted without warning.
