Additional data storage and privacy policy considerations

In addition to the non-personally identifiable data collected by cookies, this website also offers the ability for adults to connect with us via contact forms and other similar files. Additionally, individuals may contact the organization by telephone or email not using the forms that reside on either website. Data collected by phone is saved only for individuals who become clients, and is managed as described here. Data is not collected on inquiries that do not result in a client relationship.

To receive communications from this website, we require that adults share personal information consisting of first and last name, telephone number, and email address. In some cases we may also request a second telephone number, web conferencing ID, or mailing address, such as for telephone or web contact or billing purposes. In such cases, information is gathered and stored securely in password protected client files not accessible through either website. All information gathered via any form on this website will be deleted upon request. We do not automate decision-making nor do we make decisions on behalf of those who have shared personally identifiable information with us.

Individuals submitting personally identifiable information also have the right to update their information with us. To do so, please contact us using the information in the contact section below.

Your information is never shared or sold to others for any purposes, and is only shared with third party services only as necessary and explained above. If, at any time, you wish to opt out of communication, email, or to have your data deleted, please direct your request to the email, address, and/or phone number in the contact section below.

Should we become aware of any breach of data, we will notify the Information Commissioner’s Office as required by the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union and any other entities required by US federal law. We monitor both websites for breaches of data and will act urgently in the event of such an event.
