The Counseling Washington web site is committed to honoring the privacy of its visitors. The following summarizes our information gathering and dissemination practices.
We do not collect any personal information about our visitors. Other than counselor related advertising, we do not sell any products on line and have no reason to collect financial information for consumers viewing this website.
We do not sell, trade, exchange or otherwise make available any personally identifiable information to any other company or organization.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
CounselingWashington.com participates in the www.Google.com/analytics program which counts unique (first-time) visitors to our site. Your identity is not recorded, but when you revisit the site, the software recognizes you as someone who has been here before--and counts you as a visitor once again, but not as a unique visitor. The information gathered by Google.com/analytics is used to analyze traffic to the site.
This site contains several hundred links to external sites that we believe to be helpful and interesting. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
These links are provided to help you to find specific information. You make the choice whether to use our links to visit other sites. While we monitor for broken links each week, we have no way of knowing, if the owner of a link changes. So if one of our well-intended links takes you to an unexpected or undesirable site, please let us know so we can correct the problem.
Questions regarding this statement should be emailed to the Counseling Washington Managing Director.
