Your Right to Privacy
You will find more extensive Terms & Conditons on the Policy page of my ExceptionalPurpose.com website
Like you, I care about the protection of privacy, both online and offline.
So here is what you can expect from me:
I do not sell your data.
I do not spam you.
And any information gathered about you in person, via email or online conversations, or via my online forms (including your name, contact details, and birth details) is never sold or deliberately shared with any other parties, except if required by law (can’t imagine why that would happen!), or in the secure processing of that data as necessary in fulfilling my work for you (unless expressly requested to do so by you—example: for cross-referencing with other therapists or counsellors).
The Third Party Services I Use
- My Booking Forms and Email Forms are hosted off-site and processed digitally by Typeform.com. The forms are encrypted and coded by Typeform, and I have had very good customer service from them. They are fast gathering a respected reputation among long-standing companies and organisations world-wide.
Typeform automatically send your form data or email to me at my private, encrypted Swiss email account at ProtonMail. You can view the Privacy Policies of Typeform and ProtonMail on their sites.
- I offer secure online credit/debit card processing on my ExceptionalPurpose.com website via Stripe, an internationally recognised online company currently serving 100,000+ businesses in 100+ countries across nearly every industry on the globe. This BodhimindEssences.com website will soon offer online payents; but until then, please visit my ExceptionalPurpose.com site for all payments (see the https and lock icon in the address bar for all pages there, or for any site where you are sharing your data).
All Consultations (discussions and written material) are strictly confidential. And that goes for both sides: if I share anything personal with you during your session that may be pertinent for you, I expect you to also honour my own privacy.
Sessions booked to be more than one hour in duration are digitally recorded for you as mp3 files, and it is your own responsibility to keep that file secure. I keep a digital mp3 copy of these audio session(s) only on a separate external drive, and for a limited time, for reference for further work for you during your sessions. (While your mp3 file is still available, it can be resent to you digitally at no charge should you lose your copy. But I can’t keep them forever due to their size and the expense (and clutter!) of storage devices. Apart from the brief interval when you can download your mp3 file, I don’t store it in the cloud.)
