Welcome to the divorce/by data project.

If you are divorced or you are in the process or getting divorced, please take a minute to fill out our brief survey.

Our mission is to empower people with aggregate data to make informed decisions.

Privacy Policy


CKC Communications Inc., d/b/a DivorceInTheCity hereby referred to as “DITC”, understands how important the privacy of personal information is to its users. This Privacy Policy will tell you the minimal information that is collected through your use of this website. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. It will also explain the security of the information we collect on your behalf when you register for a DITC account.

DITC contains links to other sites. Once you enter another website, please be aware that DITC is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. The only information we normally collect will be non-personal information through the use of cookies or web beacons (explained below). Non-personal information is defined as data that is not traceable back to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual, e.g. the keyword phrase you searched on to find this website. However, if you choose to contact us, then you will be submitting personally identifiable information in the form of your name and email address along with anything else you volunteer.


In general, you can browse DITC without giving us any personal information. We use DITC to analyze traffic to our website in order to understand our customer and visitors needs and to continually improve our site for them. DITC collects only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific visitor. See the next section for more regarding the personal information that you voluntarily send to us.

A. Cookies

What is a cookie? A cookie is a small data file that is stored on the hard drive of the computer you use to view a website.

  • Cookies placed by DITC are session based non-persistent cookies and can only be read by DITC and any network or maintenance contractors working on our behalf (as described below).
  • Cookies placed by DITC for web surfers contain non-personally identifiable information and are deleted when you close your web browser. We collect non-personal information about your use of our website as a web surfer. Every computer that accesses DITC is assigned a different cookie that allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using the website. We also may use cookie information to determine the popularity of certain content. Most web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Apple Safari can be set to reject all cookies and offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. Rejecting cookies will not impede browsing of http://www.divorceinthecity.com as a visitor in any way.
  • Cookies placed by DITC for registered users and subscribers contain potentially personally identifiable information (your username and URL) but they are deleted when you close the browser or log out of the DITC service. These cookies are required to create an account and therefore subscribe to our other publications (email newsletters or other websites.)

B. Web Beacons

  • Web beacons are tiny graphic image files, imbedded in a webpage in GIF, PNG, JPEG or HTML format, that provide a presence on the webpage and send back to its home server (which can belong to the DITC or a website contractor) information from the Users' browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, the type browser that is accessing the site and the ID number of any cookies on the users' computer previously placed by that server.
  • Web beacons can also be used to place a cookie on the users' browser. Web beacons may also be known as clear GIFs, web bugs, 1-by-1 GIFs, single-pixel GIFs, 1x1 pixels, or clear pixels.
  • We may use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your use of our website. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our website. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of DITC. We do not link non-personal information from web beacons to personally identifiable information you have volunteered without your permission.

C. Third Party Cookies

In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Some of the banner ads displayed in our web sites are provided by third parties. These ads contain cookies and may also contain web beacons. Unlike cookies and web beacons used by DITC in content it controls on its web sites, cookies or web beacons received with banner ads are collected by our advertisers and we do not have access to this information. We use third parties to serve some or all of the advertisements that are placed within our sites and they may use information (not including personally identifiable information) about your visits to our sites and other sites to assist in serving advertisements to you. These companies may employ cookies, web beacons, and action tags to measure advertising effectiveness. They may share anonymous information with their clients such as date/time of the banner ad shown, the specific ad shown, the IP address, etc.

The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered to you by Google, our Web advertising partner. View Google's privacy policy here.


This Privacy Policy does not apply to content, business information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to DITC by email, forum post, or blog comment. If you want to keep content or business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to us or post them to our forum.


A. Emails You Send to DITC

When you contact DITC, you are providing us with at minimum your email address. You may optionally provide us with additional information such as your real name or the company you represent. DITC will keep this information in confidence and not share it with third parties. You will not be added to mailing lists unless requested.

B. Commenting on the DITC Forum or Blogs

When you comment on the DITC forums or blog, you can choose to submit your post anonymously. You may be identifiable by others on this publicly accessible page if you choose to log in with your Google, Blogger, or other username instead so please keep this in mind when commenting. Please see Google's and Blogger's privacy policies for more information on their systems at http://www.google.com/privacy.html and http://www.blogger.com/privacy respectively.

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area that information can be collected and used by others. Accordingly, you should use caution when sharing any personal information with others in any community area.

C. Registering for the DITC Forum

When you create an account on the DITC forum and/or post to the forum, you can choose to do so with an anonymous username. If you choose to reveal your real name, please realize this is a public forum. DITC processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.


At no time will the contents of your information collected on your behalf by subscribing for a DITC account be shared with third parties. DITC may provide aggregate quantitative data to third parties, including but not limited to the number of users of the DITC service, the number of search hits recorded by DITC, the most accessed content on DITC and the averages of DITC users thereof. Please see below for more information on aggregate data.


We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us and information collected on your behalf, both during transmission and once we receive it. Please note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.


By using DITC, you acknowledge and agree that DITC may access, preserve, and disclose your account information and any information associated with that account if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (b) protect property or defend or assert legal rights in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, (b) enforce our Terms of Use Policy, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues (including, without limitation, the filtering of spam), (d) respond to user support requests, or (e) protect the rights, property or safety of DITC, its users and the public. DITC will not be responsible or liable for the exercise or non-exercise of its rights under the Terms of Service.

In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose this information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.

In addition, we may disclose personal information as described below.

A. Disclosure to Network and Maintenance Contractors

People working on our behalf to maintain the website may sometimes have limited access to your username and email address in course of providing products or services to DITC. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for the operation and maintenance of our website. Unless you notify us otherwise, these contractors also may have access to any additional information you provided to us such as your real name, company, and title in the course of their testing. The only personally identifiable information accessible to these contractors is the minimum required to create an account (your username and email address). This is the minimum necessary for the contractor to perform their limited functions for DITC. We also contractually require that our operations and maintenance contractors (1) protect the privacy of your email address consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (2) not use or disclose it for any purpose other than providing us with products and services as required by law.

B. Disclosure of Aggregate Information

DITC may provide general aggregate information to third parties. This sort of statistical data is called aggregate information because it reflects the habits and characteristics of a large group of anonymous people. Websites may use aggregate data or share it with their business partners so that the information and services they provide best meet the needs of the users.

We require parties with whom we share aggregate information to agree that they will not attempt to make this information personally identifiable in any way, such as by combining it with other databases.


Despite DITC's best efforts to protect your information while using our website, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.

DITC processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.


We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. DITC is not designed for or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. Children's parents or guardians are solely responsible for providing supervision of any of their children's use of this website.


DITC will keep the most up-to-date policy on this page accessible at http://www.divorceinthecity.com/privacy/. Any material changes in the way DITC uses personal information will be described in future versions of this Privacy Policy, with the date of those changes clearly noted on the first page. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Please exit the site immediately if you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or any future revised policy.


Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us when contacting us, joining the DITC forum, or creating a DITC email account, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password.


If you have any questions regarding these Terms of Use, please contact CKC Communications Inc. 76 Laight Street, New York, New York 10013. 212-219-9188.
