thanks for the reply,
what do you mean by using Tor correctly?

If Tor is not correctly used you can still leak information
regarding your identity. See this link on the main Tor page:

Since "he" in Marco's original post referred to the client's ISP, just to clarify, your ISP can't even see "leaked" data sent through Tor. It would be encrypted before being sent through the Tor network.

Leaked data may compromise your anonymity if sniffed by an exit node, or by any intermediate router on the internet between the exit node and the destination.
