What Information is Collected
TherapyRoots collects certain information from its users in four ways: (a) from TherapyRoots web server logs, (b) with cookies, (c) using Web Analytics, and (d) directly from the user.
Server Log Information
When you visit any website, certain information about your visit can be collected. We may automatically collect and temporarily store certain general, non-personal, statistical information when you visit our website from your computer or mobile device (collectively, “Server Log Information”), including:
- Domain from which you access the Internet
- IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer when accessing the Internet. All computer identification on the web is conducted with IP addresses, which allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other)
- Operating system and information about the browser used when visiting the website
- Date and time of your visit
- Length of your visit
- Pages you visited
- Address of the website that connected you to our website (such as google.com or bing.com)
- Hyperlinks you clicked on
- Location information
- Demographic and interest data.
When you visit any website, its server may generate a piece of text known as a “cookie” to place on your computer. The cookie allows the server to “remember” specific information about your visit. The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of websites. Cookies from our website only collect information about your browser's visit to the site; they do not collect personally identifiable information about you.
There are two types of cookies, temporary and persistent. Temporary cookies last only as long as your browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods.
We use temporary cookies to let our server know that you are continuing a visit to our website.
We use persistent cookies to enable Google Analytics to differentiate between new and returning website visitors. Persistent cookies remain on your computer between visits to our website until they are removed.
TherapyRoots may use Google Analytics or another analytics provider to understand TherapyRoots's site usage. Site usage information is used to help design, develop, and support TherapyRoots websites. To the extent TherapyRoots uses Google Analytics, Google receives and stores TherapyRoots's contributed site usage information (such as pages accessed), but it does not receive any individually identifiable or sensitive information as a part of this process. If you do not want data collected by Google Analytics, you can use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on available on Google's website.
Registration (User-Supplied Information)
TherapyRoots website registration systems require users to give TherapyRoots contact information such as their name and e-mail address, and demographic information such as organization and/or role. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. TherapyRoots uses this data to tailor the user's experience at TherapyRoots websites, showing the user content that reflects his or her stated preferences. This information may be shared with affiliates, sponsors, advertisers or partners on an aggregate basis, but personally identifiable information will not be disclosed without the user's prior consent.
PII refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email address, postal address, and possibly information relating to certain support or customer service issues. Any PII you choose to give us will be used solely for the purpose for which it is intended and as described in this policy. For example, if you choose to utilize the “Contact Us” function, you are providing PII to us, which we shall use only to respond to your inquiry. Furthermore, users may be required to provide a valid email address during the registration process. We shall use your email address solely to communicate with you about the services we provide.
We do use vendors to assist us in providing services to you. Those vendors have their own privacy policies applicable to their websites. They may make use of your PII as described on their websites.
Services (User-Supplied Information)
If you sign up for a particular service TherapyRoots may collect PII such as contact information (e.g., name, address, telephone number and e-mail address), demographic information (e.g., zip code, organization and/or role), and billing information (e.g., credit or debit card numbers).
We use the information to verify that only authorized users are accessing the respective application; to build your electronic client record so that TherapyRoots may provide you the specific personalized service you have applied for and agreed with; and to contact you when necessary, to communicate helpful tips and advice during your participation in this service.
In order to provide users with greater value, TherapyRoots may provide links to various third party websites. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between TherapyRoots and that destination site, TherapyRoots exercises no authority over linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. TherapyRoots assumes no responsibility or liability for these independent methods or actions and is not responsible for the independent policies or procedures of destination sites. Similarly, TherapyRoots cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such websites. These destination links are provided only for your convenience, and as such, you access them at your own risk.

Surveys and Questionnaires
TherapyRoots online surveys and questionnaires may ask users for contact and demographic information. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Demographic and profile data is also collected at TherapyRoots websites. This information may be shared with affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, advertisers or partners on an aggregate basis, but it does not indicate the identity of individual users.
Some TherapyRoots website features may use applications to collect data to facilitate an e-commerce transaction, such as registering you for a specific service. TherapyRoots will ask your explicit permission to transfer this data to a third party (e.g., services provider) to facilitate this transaction. TherapyRoots may store this information to verify the transaction for customer service and accounting reasons and may use this information to help personalize your experience on TherapyRoots.com. TherapyRoots may also share this information with other third parties on an aggregate basis, but it does not indicate the identity of individual users. See the External Links section above for additional disclaimers regarding third-party websites.
Third Party Ad Services
TherapyRoots may utilize certain third-party advertising services to display advertising for its advertisers. These third-party services may place a cookie on your computer for the purposes of ad tracking and presentation. TherapyRoots does not share personally identifiable user information with its advertising services.
We implement security safeguards designed to protect your data, such as HTTPS. We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. However, we cannot warrant the security of any information that you send us. There is no guarantee that data may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
