Woman’s Solace is committed to maintaining your privacy and refraining from inappropriately using information about our clients and website visitors. All personal and professional counselling communications with Woman’s Solace are treated as privileged and confidential communications. There are limited exceptions to this policy as required by law. If it appears to the therapist, or if you advise the therapist, that you are about to do physical harm to yourself or others or that you are engaged in “child abuse” or “elder abuse” as defined in and under local or state laws, the protections afforded by “privileged and confidential communications” do not apply and Woman’s Solace is bound by specific reporting requirements and ethical principles to report any or all information that may be required to prevent such incidents from occurring. There may also be limited legal circumstances where Woman’s Solace is required to disclose information to third parties, such where a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order requires us to do so.
We reserve the right to have an independent therapist monitor client counselling sessions and communications for clinical treatment and quality control purposes, however, such communications otherwise remain privileged and confidential. We will not disclose your individually identifiably personal information (for a fee or otherwise) to a vendor who might want to sell you a good or service without your prior consent.
We also do not track individually identifiable information about your use of our site. We do not imbed “cookies” (small computer files transferred to a visitor’s hard drive), or use other tracking techniques, to allow us to track your use of the site.
Client e-mail addresses and other identifying information are not sold, rented, or otherwise shared with any other organization, group, individual, or entity unless you have opted-in to receive third party promotional communications.
