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
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
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.
