Psychotherapy Matters Inc. (“Psychotherapy Matters Inc.”, “we”, or “us”) take your privacy seriously. We only ask you to provide information that we need in order to deliver the service or information you have requested.
1. Information We Collect.
(a) At this website, personally identifiable information is not collected from you as a Searcher or when you use the website to help find a provider. We do not retain any information when you search on our website. We may retain general information about your searches in order to track items such as commonly searched symptoms or topics of interest. All such information will be retained only as Aggregated Data. “Aggregated Data” means records which have been stripped of information potentially identifying users, and which have been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information. Your identity and personal information will be kept anonymous in our Aggregated Data.
(b) When a Provider subscribes to our fee-based services, the payment information is submitted directly to our payment processor, who is responsible for its use and security. We do not collect or retain any payment information.
(c) When you register as a Provider to be listed on our website we collect information that will be used to create your profile on the website, such as your name, address, email address, as well as well as professional information on your qualifications, education, certifications, and your fields of experience and/or speciality and other information. In each case, you acknowledge that you are providing us with this information for display to Searchers. In addition, like most sites, we maintain logs of site usage for purposes such as to evaluate our users’ interest level in areas of the website, which and how many pages they look at, how long they stay on the website, and what browsers are used to view the website. This data is tracked as Aggregated Data, not at an individual user level, and is not uniquely identifying. The Aggregated Data may be shared with third parties and the public.
2. Our Use of Your Information. Psychotherapy Matters Inc. will only use information we collect to provide you the services on our website that you request.
(a) We share information with third parties only when needed to deliver to you products or services that you request. For example, we share the information needed to process your payment with the credit card payment processing company.
(b) Psychotherapy Matters Inc. does not give, rent or sell our contact lists to any organization or individual other than those parties contracted to process and manage transactions, research, analysis and communications and in all cases, only to fulfill the specified purposes.
(d) When you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party websites, the third party may collect information about you at their website. The third party may have privacy policies that differ from ours. It is your responsibility to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any website you visit. Psychotherapy Matters Inc. is not responsible for any personal information that you provide to those third parties.
(e) We may also use your personal information to generate Aggregated Data for internal use and for sharing with third parties on a selective basis.
3. Your Materials. The materials you post on the website, such as directory information are made available to be viewed by other users of the website and transmitted on the Internet. No such materials are treated confidentially. Psychotherapy Matters Inc. will remove your materials from the website at your request, but we cannot give any assurances that such materials are not still available or have not been copied by other users.
4. Limitations. Though Psychotherapy Matters Inc. makes every effort to preserve your privacy, we cannot guarantee your privacy. Further, we may disclose personal information when required by law or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us. We may also disclose personal information in cooperation with a law enforcement request.
