We collect and process certain information. We only require the minimum amount of information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us. We don't sell it to third parties and only use it as this Privacy Statement describes.
Type of Information We Collect
If you're just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We collect this technical information to better understand how our website visitors use Virtual Psychology, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
In order to use our Services, you are required to register an account and provide certain personal information such as your name, email address, professional qualification and setting. You may choose to update or supplement the personal information that you provided at registration at any time through your account settings.
We collect financial information when you subscribe for paid account plan or otherwise order Services that require payment. When you place an order with us or register for a paid subscription plan, standard payment method information (like credit card number, card type, expiration date, etc.) is collected through a third-party payment processor who is compliant with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards.
How We Process and Share Collected Information
We use some of the information you provide us to monitor, maintain, secure and improve our current Services; as well as for research and developing new services. We also may use your email address you shared with us to send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, invoices and other support and customer service communications.
When you use the Services, certain information you provide may be shared with third-party networks and analytics partners (such as Google Analytics) to analyze our Services usage and traffic. For example, we may use analytics partners to analyze and measure, in the aggregate, the number of unique visitors to our Services. These third parties may collect information sent by your computer, browser, or mobile device in response to a request for content, such as unique identifiers, your IP address, or other information about your computer or device.
We do not transfer your personal information to our analytics partners. Likewise, we do not share, sell, or give away your personal information to third parties unless one of the following circumstances applies:
To comply with the law. We may share information in response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
In an emergency. We may share information if we believe it's necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person.
Aggregated or de-identified information. We may share information about you that has been aggregated or anonymized such that it cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
Your Choices and Control
Accessing and Updating Your Information. You can access and change certain personal information at any time through your Account Manager, available to each Virtual Psychology registered user.
Deleting Your Account. You may delete your account information at any time from your Account Manager. When you delete your account, your data is no longer available. Please note, however, that we may retain certain information after you delete your account, for internal purposes including research and analytics.
Analytics Opt-Out. Some analytics providers we partner with provide specific opt-out mechanisms. For example, you may manage the use and collection of certain information by Google Analytics here.
Email communications. You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us by updating your email options in your account preferences here. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as information about your account or your use of the Services.
