At Bridge Counselling we collect information about our service users for the following main reasons:
To help us maintain contact with our clients before and during their counselling programme.
To help us to improve the service we offer.
We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your consent.
We have established the following two principles:
We will respect your email privacy. You will only receive email from Bridge Counselling if you have expressly agreed that we may contact you in this way.
We will not share any individual's details (including your email address) with any third party.
What information do we collect?
We collect information on our users when they make an enquiry or contact us through the site.
The minimum information we need is your first and last name and a telephone number or email address.
Who will have access to your information?
Only the Counselling Coordinator and the Counsellor(s) allocated to you.
What else you should know about privacy
Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of, and access to, your own computer.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the internet that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the internet.
Our pages may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices on other websites.
