We at MyCounselingDirectory are committed to protecting the privacy of and providing a safe online experience for all our users. This Privacy Statement applies to information collected online and it discloses the privacy practices we adhere to at MyCounselingDirectory. Please read this Statement completely, and contact us if you have any questions.
1. We will never rent or sell or share your email address with anyone.
2. We will not track what you read or whom you mail to without your expressed written permission.
3. We will never install any software on your machine, or cause any ads to be displayed on your machine. All we do is allow you to download the PDF data file you request.
4. Our newsletter requires you to opt in twice to confirm that you truly requested it. Every newsletter carries an unsubscribe button and your name will be completely deleted when you unsubscribe.
5. While we will try our best, we cannot guarantee that our email provider is perfect. Your mileage will vary, but our expectation is that you will be quite pleased by their responsiveness.
Information Collection and Use
In general, information is requested from you so that we may provide the most efficient and enhanced service to you. Thus, we may collect personally identifiable information such as names, email addresses, and demographic information such as age, gender, and postal code. We may also collect an IP address, browser type, domain name, access time and referring website address. This information is collected during registration or in response to specific requests (e.g. when signing up for a newsletter).
Note that MyCounselingDirectory is not responsible for information given to third parties; this Privacy Statement applies only to information given directly to MyCounselingDirectory.
How We Use Your Information
We use personal information so that we may display custom personalized content to users and to send newsletters, emails, promotional material, polls and other updates to users. Users may opt out of receiving such communications at any time.
We also use this information to evaluate and administer this website, to respond to any problems and to assess the popularity of our services.
We will never give out your name or personal information without your permission. Although we may produce reports containing aggregate information about users (such as demographic, age and online usage information) we will never include any personal information of our users in these reports.
We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as required to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of MyCounselingDirectory; to protect the safety of our users; or to co-operate with any legal investigation.
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online, that information can be collected and used by others (e.g. you may receive unsolicited email messages from third parties). MyCounselingDirectory has no control over any such use of your personal information.
Your browser stores small amounts of information on your computer in "cookies" when you visit a website. These cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information about you, but are used simply to help us track which of our features you prefer. They also enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. You have the option of disabling cookies on you browser; however, if you do so some advanced or customized features of MyCounselingDirectory may not be available to you.
Controlling Your Personal Information
Users may at any time change, correct, modify or delete any personal information they may have provided to MyCounselingDirectory. Users may also unsubscribe from any newsletter or opt out of any promotional mailings at any time.

Security of Personal Information
Access to private, personal and confidential information is limited to those employees with a specific need to view this information. Data is stored on secure server systems in controlled environments. Audits of our security systems and procedures are conducted on a regular basis.
Changes to this Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement will be updated as necessary to provide the highest protection for our users and to comply with a changing environment. If material changes are made to this Statement, or to the way we collect or use personally identifiable information, we will post such changes prior to implementation. We recommend that you check the Privacy Statement whenever visiting MyCounselingDirectory to be sure you are aware of our current policies and practices.
