Here at Affect Phobia Therapy we understand that you are aware of and care about your own personal privacy interests, and we take that seriously. This Privacy Notice describes Affect Phobia Therapy’s policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal data, and sets forth your privacy rights. We recognize that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility, and so we will from time to time update this Privacy Notice as we undertake new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies.
How we collect and use (process) your personal information
Affect Phobia Therapy collects personal information about its members and other customers. With a few exceptions, this information is limited to the kinds of information that can be found on a business card: first name, last name, job title, employer name, work address, work email, and work phone number. We use this information to provide members and customers with goods and services, including membership services, certification, training, and the like. We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of Affect Phobia Therapy services.

We use this information to help us design our site to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences.
When and how we share information with others
Information about your Affect Phobia Therapy purchases and certification status are maintained in association with your membership or profile account. The personal information Affect Phobia Therapy collects from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by third parties located in the United States.

On occasion, Affect Phobia Therapy engages third parties to mail information to you, including items like books you may have purchased, or material from an event sponsor.
Transferring personal data from the EU to the US
Affect Phobia Therapy has its headquarters in the United States. Information we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. Affect Phobia Therapy relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, Affect Phobia Therapy collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Affect Phobia Therapy in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Affect Phobia Therapy endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with Affect Phobia Therapy and the practices described in this Privacy Notice. Affect Phobia Therapy also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate.
