Cookie and Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At the Connolly Counselling Centre (hereinafter “the Centre”) we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

It is the Centre’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, the Centre collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Centre’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, the Centre may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Centre also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. The Centre only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Centre’s website choose to interact with the Centre in ways that require the Centre to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Centre gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who fill in our contact form provide a name and email address. In each case, the Centre collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Centre. The Centre does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
The Centre may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, the Centre may monitor the most popular pages on the website. The Centre may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Centre does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Centre discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Centre’s behalf or to provide services available at the Centre’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Centre’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Centre will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Centre discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Centre believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Centre, third parties or the public at large. The Centre takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Centre uses cookies to help the Centre identify and track visitors, their usage of the Centre website, and their website access preferences. The Centre visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Centre’s website, with the drawback that certain features of the Centre’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If the Centre, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Centre goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Centre may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, the Centre may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in the Centre’s sole discretion. The Centre encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
