Privacy Policy

Welcome! As a counselor and therapist, your privacy is very important to me. I have written this Privacy Policy to clarify how I collect, use, and disclose your information when you use my website, https://www.lechnyr.com (“Services”). However, this Privacy Policy doesn’t apply to any third-party websites, services, or applications, even if they are accessible through the Services I offer.

Note: This Privacy Policy does not address the collection, use, and disclosure of information as part of a Client-Therapist relationship. For David Lechnyr, LCSW’s HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, please refer to https://www.lechnyr.com/privacy.pdf.

Personal Information Collected

Like most websites, I collect non-personally-identifying information such as the type of web browser you use, your language preference, the referring site, and the date and time of each visit. The reason I collect this non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use my website.

I also collect potentially personally-identifying information like your Internet Protocol (IP) address and computer/phone/tablet or other device information.

Not surprisingly, I collect information that you provide directly to me. For example, I collect information when you create an account, participate in any interactive features of the Services, subscribe to a newsletter or email list, participate in an event, survey, contest or promotion, schedule an appointment, make a purchase, communicate with me via third-party social media sites, or otherwise communicate with me.

Use of Information

I may use the information I have about you. For example, to:

  • Provide, maintain, improve and promote my products and services.
  • Provide and deliver information, products and services you request, process transactions and send you related information, including confirmations and receipts.
  • Respond to your comments, questions and requests.
  • Communicate with you about products, services, surveys, offers, promotions, rewards and events, and provide news and information we think will be of interest to you.
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities in connection with my Services.
  • Link or combine with information I get from others to help understand your needs and provide you with better service.
  • Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.

I am based in the United States and the information I collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to me, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries.

Sharing of Information

I may share information about you:

  • With vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work or perform services on my behalf.
  • When you participate in the interactive areas of our Services, certain information you provide may be displayed to other users, such as your name, photo, comments and other information you choose to provide.
  • In response to a request for information if I believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation or legal process;
  • If I believe your actions are inconsistent with user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of myself or others.
  • With your consent or at your direction.

Social Sharing Features

At times I may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on my Services with other media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Information on this Site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, and articles). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of the Services. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Services available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Payments Processors

I provide paid products and/or services as a part of the Services I offer. In that case, I use third-party services for payment processing (e.g. payment processors). We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council.

Appointments

I offer the ability for online appointment scheduling as a part of the Services I provide. To facilitate this, I use a third-party service for appointment scheduling. Any third-party service I use as a part of the Services will have signed a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) for compliance with HIPAA guidelines.

Security

While the security of your Personal Information is important to me, please remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links To External Sites

The Services may contain links to external sites that are not operated by me. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. I strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit. I have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Children’s Privacy

My Service is not intended for anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).

I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children have provided me with Personal Data, please contact me. If I become aware that I have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, I will take steps to remove that information from my servers.

Cookies

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability or functionality of the Services.

Terms of Service and Disclaimer

Please refer to the Terms of Services and Disclaimer for important information regarding the Services I provide and your use of the Services.
