Information We May Share

We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose Personal Information, except as described in this Privacy Policy or as you explicitly consent. We also may share the information with third-party service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf to help with our business activities. These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, court order or legal process; (i) in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; (ii) under the discovery process in litigation or arbitration; (iv) to enforce our policies, contracts or other rights; (v) to collect amounts owed to us; (vi) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (vii) if in good faith we believe that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable. In addition, from time to time, server logs may be reviewed for security purposes. In such cases, server log data containing IP addresses may be shared with law enforcement bodies in order that they may identify users in connection with their investigation of the unauthorized activities.

We reserve the right to disclose or transfer any information we have about you in the event of a proposed or actual reorganization, sale, lease, merger, joint venture, assignment, amalgamation, or any other type of acquisition, disposal or financing of all or any portion of our practice or of any of our assets (including should we cease to trade, become insolvent, or enter into receivership or any similar event occur). Should such an event take place, we will endeavor to direct the transferee to use Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Protection of Information

We take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. While we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information disclosed or transmitted to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information.

Cross-Border Transfer

My practice is in the United States. Your Personal Information may be transferred to countries outside your country of residence, which may have different data protection and data processing laws than those in your country. Our Privacy Policy requires that we at all times ensure a level of protection at least as protective as those mandated by the European Economic Area. Any such transfer shall take place only in accordance with and as permitted by the law of your jurisdiction, but please be aware that the laws and practices relating to the protection of Personal Information are likely to be different and in some cases may be weaker than those within your home jurisdiction. Regardless, in all events, we shall apply the provisions of this Privacy Policy to your Personal Information wherever it is located.

Children's Privacy on the Site

The Site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under 13 years of age through the Site.

Retention

We will retain the Personal Information we receive as described in this Privacy Policy for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, provide our services and products, pursue legitimate business purposes, enforce our agreements and comply with all applicable laws, and in accordance with our routine information storage policies.

Your Rights

To the extent required by law, we provide users with reasonable access to the Personal Information provided to us, a portable copy of the information, and the ability to review, correct, delete, restrict or object to the processing of such information.

Although we make good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which we are unable to provide access, including but not limited to where the information would compromise others' privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy in the case in question, or where the information is commercially proprietary. If we determine that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, we will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.

If you would like to review or update your Personal Information or preferences, or have your information removed from our mailing lists, please let us know by emailing us at christineradice@yahoo.com or by writing us at:
