Because Self-Injurious Skin Picking can be quite devastating, it is common for people to be "in hiding" about their symptoms, not wanting anyone to know about their behavior. With this in mind, we have created a secure storage environment for our subscriber data that is protected by both hardware and software firewalls and housed on a dedicated server. Personal, identifying information will not ever be accessible to anyone at PsycTech, Ltd.
The authors of this program will, however, have access to "bulk statistics" which are large amounts of information, not tied to any individual, for the purpose of program evaluation. For example, the authors will be able to know on average, how many times subscribers pick daily, or the most common part of the body from which people pick, but will not know the identity of any of these individual subscribers. It will also be important for the program designers to see how skin picking changes over time as subscribers use the program and to "hear" any comments subscribers have about the utility of the procedures described. This information will help us broaden the base of knowledge about SISP, optimizing the utility of StopPicking.com, and to help advance future treatments.
By taking part in StopPicking.com you are agreeing that the anonymous information you provide to us can be used in our efforts to evaluate and improve our program.
