Our Company Wide Commitment to Your Privacy

Wellness Counseling Center takes protecting your privacy very seriously. To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our policies to Wellness Counseling Center employees and contractors and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

Wellness Counseling Center takes precautions – including administrative, technical, and physical measures – to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Wellness Counseling Center websites use secure encryption, provided by a third party, on some web pages where credit card information is required. To make purchases from the Wellness Counseling Center website you must use a modern SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser.

Integrity of Your Personal Information

Wellness Counseling Center has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided. You can request a copy of your personal information and a summary of your interactions with our therapists and support agents by contacting us. While Wellness Counseling Center strives to protect the security and integrity of sensitive personal information provided through this website, due to the inherent nature of the internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee 100% that information during transmission through the internet or while stored in our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others. If you contact us by e-mail or a “contact us” form or similar feature on our website, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view information you send by these methods in transit. Never send sensitive information (such as payment card information, social security numbers, employer identification numbers, passwords, or pin numbers) to us via e-mail or via a “contact us” form or similar feature on our website. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification.
Minors

Wellness Counseling Center recognizes that parents, guardians, or other adults may contact us to inquire about services or products for the entire family including minors. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 years of age but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the personal information of an adult and will be treated as such by this privacy policy. If a child under 18 submits personal information to Wellness Counseling Center and we learn that personal information is the information of a person under 18 years of age, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.

Right to Opt-In and Opt-Out

You have the right to “opt in” and “opt out” of certain uses of your personal information. For example, at the time you are requested to provide personal information on any of our websites, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to receive correspondence from us. You may opt out of any email communications with Wellness Counseling Center by clicking the opt-out link in our messages, or by sending an email to info@TheWellnessCounselingCenter.com stating that you would like to be removed from any or all communications entirely. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe or opt-out from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your account transactions. You may be contacted by Wellness Counseling Center in connection with your relationship to us as a client, or as follow up regarding scheduling, registering for a workshop, making a purchase, or other Wellness Counseling Center event.

Link Information

We try to link only to other highly reputable websites that do not engage in improper business practices. When you are on any of our websites you may have the opportunity to visit, or “click-through”, to other websites, blogs or other electronic media not operated by Wellness Counseling Center. These sites may collect personal information about you or be a security risk. Wellness Counseling Center does not control websites that are operated by these entities and is not responsible for the practices of the other websites. The privacy practices and policies of any linked websites are the sole responsibility of the other websites. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any website that you visit from a link on any of our websites.

Business/Professional Practice Transfer

In the event that Wellness Counseling Center or its assets are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, user information may be one of the transferred assets.
