How do we collect and use information?
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services, and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
Personal Information. When you (as a Therapist or User) create an account we'll collect certain information that may include information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address and phone number ("Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII"). We may also collect certain information that is not PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you, such as your gender, age, date of birth and zip code.
In addition, if you are a User, we may use the information that you provide at sign-up to match you with a Therapist.
We or our third party services providers may also collect certain information from you in connection with your use of the Services, including payment information. However, just to be clear, we will not be recording any call between Users and Therapists.
Information Related to Use of the Services. Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as "Log Data"), including both Therapist and User Account holders and non-account holders ("Visitors"). Log Data may include information such as a Visitor's Internet Protocol (IP) address, device ID, browser type, operating system, the web page that a Visitor was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a Visitor browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a Visitor clicked on, interactions between a User and Therapists. We use this information to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to improve and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Visitor's needs and preferences. We may use a person's IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP Address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.
Location Information. In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address or mobile GPS data into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you.
What Information Do We Share With Third Parties?
We will not share any PII that we have collected from you, including with respect to any User-Therapist relationship, except as described below:
Information Shared with Our Services Providers. We may engage third party service providers, such as third party payment processors, to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party services providers have access to your PII only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf.
Information Shared with Third Parties. We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions. Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and (iv) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
The Security of Your Information
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.

Modifying Your Information
You can access and modify the PII associated with your account by accessing the Settings tab in the App. If you want us to delete your PII and your account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We'll take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Our Policy Toward Children
Our Services are not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected PII of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
