1. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We value people who visit our site and want them to have a positive experience. Jess provides free and informative information in her blogs because she loves supporting psycho-education. If you decide to share your personal data with us by signing up for the mailing list, or purchasing a product or service, or setting up an appointment, or downloading a free form, we want you to know that we are using the information you give us to fulfill your request for goods or services in a way that you would expect us to use your information (so for example, emailing you your product or freebie form, or sending you an appointment confirmation, or responding to a blog comment). We won't use your information in undisclosed ways; we will never sell your data.
Additionally, we do not specifically target to, market to, or otherwise attempt to sell to clients located outside of the United States. Nor do we have an office in Europe. We love our world neighbors and colleagues, and every person is welcome on this site. However, if you do choose to sign up for the mailing list, or purchase materials or comment on a blog, you are doing so by your own free will. If you sign up, understand that we are located in the US and if you don't want us to have your information, then don't buy anything, comment on any blog, or use the contact form, or sign up for the mailing list.
If you choose to purchase a paid e-product, e-book, e-materials via this site, or download a freebie (so many great freebies!), or sign up for the free or paid services, your credit card information will be required for payment or for free download through Stripe which is the payment method linked up to Square Space. We need this information because SquareSpace requires credit card information even for free downloads.
You are not required to opt in. Do remember that we will need information from you in order for the freebie e-form to be sent to you (we don't have a crystal ball after all). And again, though we'd prefer only to collect your email for the freebies, Stripe via SquareSpace is not set up this way. And of course, you are always welcome to opt in to the mailing list if you'd like to be included.
Additionally, that this Site may use forms in which you give contact information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email address) so you can request information or support from Jess, ask a consultation question, comment on a blog, or if you request to be included on Jess' mailing list, or to request an appointment. You are under no obligation to fill out any form, contact form, join the mailing list, or download e-products, or leave your information so that you can add a comment on a blog. If you'd like to wonderful! If not, no problem.

4. COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OF CHILDREN UNDER AGE 13
This website is intended for people 18 years of age and older. We are committed to protecting the online privacy of children. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (”COPPA”), we will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without first obtaining parental consent. Prior to providing any personally identifiable information (your name, email address, address, phone number etc.), children under the age of thirteen (13) must have a parent or legal guardian complete and return (by email) a Parental Consent Form to email@example.com.
The consent form states that the child’s “Parent” or “Legal Guardian”, by his or her signature, consents to the collection and transfer of the child’s personally identifiable information. Consent may be revoked by completing a “Revocation of Parental Consent Form” and sending it to the email or physical mailing address above. In compliance with COPPA, We are sensitive about children consulting with parents or guardians before furnishing personal information or ordering anything online.
It is also our intention to adhere to the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) Guidelines on Internet advertising with its special sensitivities regarding solicitations to children under thirteen (13). We encourage parents/guardians to supervise and join their children in exploring cyberspace.
