Deborah Tucker DBA Families Counseling (“Families Counseling”) operates www.simi-therapy.com . It is Families Counseling’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Families Counseling collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Families Counseling’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Families Counseling’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Families Counseling may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Families Counseling also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Families Counseling only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Families Counseling’s websites choose to interact with Families Counseling in ways that require Families Counseling to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Families Counseling gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request a report download to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Families Counseling – by paying for session fees via our Paypal link, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Families Counseling collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Families Counseling. Families Counseling does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Families Counseling may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Families Counseling may monitor its website activity by using Google Analytics or similar services. Families Counseling may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Families Counseling does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Families Counseling discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Families Counseling’s behalf or to provide services available at Families Counseling’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Families Counseling’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Families Counseling will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Families Counseling discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Families Counseling believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Families Counseling, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Families Counseling website and have supplied your email address, Families Counseling may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Families Counseling and our products.  If you don't wish to receive these emails, you will be asked to unsubscribe via a link in the email.  We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Families Counseling takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Families Counseling may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
