The Psychotherapy Networker may do research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, during a promotion, from our server log files, and from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. The Psychotherapy Networker may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners. Under confidentiality agreements, the Networker may match aggregated user information with third party data. Also, the Psychotherapy Networker may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

How do we protect this information?
We take reasonable measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access through the use of encryption and network firewalls. We also safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access by limiting the number of employees permitted to access such information, and by having in place processes for disciplinary action where appropriate. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
