What's quirk?

Quirk is a project created to help more folks get access to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It's a open-source on Github and is designed to be simple and easy to use.

Privacy & Data Collection

Quirk treats your thoughts as the most sensitive possible data, because it is your most sensitive possible data.

So like rational people: we do not record or store your thoughts.

We don't want to know your thoughts. When you record something in Quirk, it lives on your phone, not on some server in Ohio or something.

Public Data Releases

We make an effort to publicly release all usage statistics collected. Typically this type of information is collected by the app stores and then only shared with the developer.

That doesn't need to be the case though; this info is anonymous and only for aggregate questions like "how many users does Quirk have?"

Private Data We Don't Release

In order to run the app, there's a couple things we do have to do.

We collect error logs. If there's a bug, we want to know about it ASAP. Otherwise, it may end up causing real harm, like corrupting your data. Error logs typically look like this:

We don't typically release this info; but mostly because we don't think anyone would use it. If you really want this, reach out and we'll see what we can do.

Who makes this?

Quirk is started and maintained by Evan Conrad (me) and supported by a whole number of people including:

Plus guidance, advice, and support from way too many people to list here including psychologists, therapists, founders, programmers, designers, friends and family.
