Privacy Policy


How may Net Responsibility be used?

Net Responsibility is designed to keep people accountable. This is done by recording all browsing history and regularly sending formatted reports to one or more accountability partners of choice. It may not be used for any kind of espionage, which means every person using the computer needs to be informed that their browsing history will be recorded. Note that the accountability partners need to agree on holding you accountable before they're added to your list.

How are the reports stored?

The reports are only sent to your accountability partners, and are not stored online. There may be other report plugins than the default, that store the reports differently, but this policy applies to the regular settings.

What about the improvement data?

If you choose to send improvement data, it means all visited sites that are flagged as inappropriate are sent to our server. If users or their accountability partners choose to help improve the accuracy of reports by rating URLs NR has flagged, the data related to these URLs will be sent to the NR server, even if the user did not select the 'Provide improvement data' option in their settings. We do not store any information about who visited these sites, such as username, IP number, MAC address etc. This anonymous data helps us develop better filtering algorithms that in return will produce better reports.

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register an account. You may visit our site anonymously, but in order to install Net Responsibility, you'll need to register. During the registration you will be prompted to enter your name (or nickname), email address and your accountability partners' email addresses. There are also several options that affect the way Net Responsibility will behave. All these settings are stored on our server.

What do we use your information for?

The information will be used by your own Net Responsibility installation to set up properly. We may also use your email address to contact you. This is primarily done for newsletters, which is optional for all users, or if we need to contact you for any other reason.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

What about deleting an account?

You may at any time delete your Net Responsibility account. This is done by logging in to the NR website and clicking the link with your username. At the very end of that page, under Log out, you may choose Delete account. When doing so, all the information you've entered will be deleted from our server.

Do we use cookies?

No, we do not use cookies.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our own or others rights, property, or safety.
