2. Collected Information
We collect certain data when you use the services, such as domain server, type of device(s) used to access the services, web browser(s) used to access the services, referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the services, (6) geolocation information, IP address, and other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the services (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information (i.e. demographic information and contact information).
We collect information (including Personal Information and Traffic Data) when you use and interact with the Services, and in some cases from third party sources. Such means of collection include information you provide voluntarily in free-form text boxes through the services or through responses to surveys, questionnaires and the like; if you use a location-enabled browser, we may receive information about your location and mobile device, as applicable; via cookies, web beacons, website analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, “Tracking Tools”), as described below; and when you use the “Contact Us” function on the site, send us an email, post on our website and social media platforms, or otherwise contact us.
3. Use of Information and Tracking Tools
We may use information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses Cultural Therapy and how we can deliver a better service experience related to our services. We use information, including Personal Information, to provide the Services and to help improve the Services, to develop new services, and to advertise (for example, to display Cultural Therapy ads on other websites). Any information we collect from you, whether it is personal information or personal health information “PHI,” is collected in an effort to provide you with best possible services. In order to create a personalized web experience for our users, we may use a software technology called “cookies,” small computer files transferred to your computing device that contain information such as user ID, user preferences, lists of pages visited and activities conducted while using the services. Although cookies are able to retain certain information related to you, they cannot be used to find identifiable information, such as your name, email address, unless you provide that information. Cultural Therapy will utilize cookies for applications that require us to keep track of information to customize results. It is possible that the website may loose some functionality if you set your browser(s) to not accept cookies. Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept Cultural Therapy’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
4. Public and Posted Information
You agree that any information that you disclose in a provider page, post, or social media channel is intentionally open to the public and is not in any way private. We recommend that you consider whether to divulge any Personal Information in any public forum. What you have written may be seen and/or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways that we are unable to control or predict.
We also have the ability to take down defamatory language that is posted by users. And Cultural Therapy should not be held liable for such content posted on our platform and be given adequate time to take it down.
5. Storage and Information Safety
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We endeavor to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage.
Although we make good faith efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not open to the public, we do not and cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. If at any time during or after our relationship we believe that the security of your Personal Information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development.
If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us in your account profile.
