Privacy Policy


Is there privacy?

A. Yes. You choose a secret code name that only you will know. All information is associated with that code name. No one knows who the code names belong to and no record is kept of code names with real names. Head office does not even know your real name. In fact your real name is not asked for. No one can trace back your information to you because there is no record of your real name beside your code name. This is why you have to pay for the consultation in advance. It is the payment process that opens access for you to the consultation.

Can't my payment information track to my code name?

A. No. Payment information is mediated by EBay's PayPal program. PayPal is a well respected worldwide payment solution. That process does not link to the Canadian Holistic Online Consultation. Once PayPal approves your payment you get an email to acknowledge that you paid. That email is your receipt. The web page that you are then taken to is not a PayPal page it is the consultation program page. On that page you are linked to the consultation and begin the process. PayPal has no way of knowing what code name you chose for the consultation process.

How can I trust the system when so much theft of identity goes on over the internet?

A. More and more information is passed over the interned every day. Most all phone calls pass over the internet at some point, even land line calls. We have set up the Canadian Holistic Online Consultation from the very beginning to offer robust privacy. The sign up process was specifically designed to ensure privacy with no leaks or links that could fail. There is no head office computer or database that stores a record of your real name along with your code name. Even if a rogue were to hack head office computers they would not be able to cross your real name to your code name because no such opportunity exists. This functionality was specifically designed into the system for maximum privacy. The police or the courts cannot order disclosure because no opportunity for disclosure exists. Again, this was deliberately designed into the program. You should feel safe and secure in knowing that your answers are private and only for your use.

What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.
