Information we collect and how we collect it
- Personal Information
SmartTracker collects personally identifiable data, such as your name, mailing address, or e-mail address, only when you voluntarily submit it to us. We collect this information when you become a Site member or when you change your user preferences in “Edit Profile.”
- Emotion and Values data: SmartTracker enables a person to track emotional changes that occur using the web platform. The types of data registered users may add to their profiles (“Profile Data”) include:
Condition/disease information, including diagnosis date,
This personal data is only available to the registered user’s healthcare professional if the user has consented to sharing the data when they registered with SmartTracker.
- Anonymised data
By filling out your Profile Data you are adding your health information to our database which may be used in research. For example, we may look at scientific questions such as, “How does a certain experience impact emotions?” At Lifepsychol and in conjunction with external researchers, we’re interested in better understanding the lived experience improving treatment options and health outcomes for everyone. Furthermore, we may provide our partners with anonymized data (which may or may not be aggregated) for research purposes
- Session Information
We track the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to different pages of the Site, the domain names of Site users’ Internet service providers, and other information related to the performance and behaviour of a given Site visit.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer”s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
As a convenience, we offer an automatic login (“Remember My Username and Password”) feature for Site members. If you select this option, our system stores your information in a file (called a “cookie”) on your computer so you don’t have to type in your username and password every time you visit. You can always choose to turn this option off whenever you log out of our Site.
When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways:
To help us recognise you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to our website and to allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests or to avoid showing you the same adverts repeatedly. To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.
Two types of cookies may be used on this website; “session cookies”, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site, and “persistent cookies”, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).
- Technical Assistance
Some of our trained employees will have access to your username so that they can provide special technical assistance, should you need it. Your password remains encrypted in our database.
Occasionally, we may refer to your profile information or usage patterns to better understand your needs or to ascertain how we can improve our products and services. In these cases, the results of our analysis remain at an aggregate level: the average or total across many users, for example.
We may use your e-mail address to contact you about administrative notices or Site information. We will not sell or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to any third party.
- Session Information
We use session information to understand how users interact with our Site. This helps us to improve our Site features, content, and performance. The results of our analysis are aggregate, and are not personally identifiable.
- Use of web beacons
Some of our website pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes known as clear gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited these pages. Web beacons collect only limited information which including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides. We may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers. These web beacons do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track the effectiveness of a particular campaign. Because web beacons are the same as any other content request included in the recipe for a web page, you cannot opt out or refuse them. However, where they are used in conjunction with cookies they can be rendered ineffective by either opting out of cookies or by changing the cookie setting on your browser.
- Disabling/enabling cookies
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled.
There are a number of ways to manage cookies. If you use different computers in different locations you will need to ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences. Some modern browsers have a feature that will analyse website privacy policies and allow a user to control their privacy needs. These are known as “P3P” features (Privacy Preferences Platform). You can easily delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. For example, if you are using Microsoft Windows Explorer:
Open “Windows Explorer” Click on the “Search” button on the tool bar Type “cookie” into the search box for “Folders and Files” Select “My Computer” in the “Look In” box Click “Search Now” Double click on the folders that are found “Select” any cookie file Hit the “Delete” button on your keyboard
If you are not using Microsoft Windows Explorer, then you should select “cookies” in the “Help” function for information on where to find your cookie folder.

Login/Username and Password: These fields uniquely identify you and help us to provide you with access to your profile areas and to protected content.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your member password and login, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account with or without your knowledge. If you are sharing a computer with other users, you should not enable Automatic Login, since that would permit other users on your computer to access the Site with your username and password. We cannot be held liable for any damages caused by the unauthorized use thereof by third parties.
