How Long We Store Personal Data
User data will be stored until the purpose the data was collected for has been achieved. You will be notified if your data is kept for longer than this period.
How We Protect Your Personal Data
We make every reasonable effort to ensure that client information is accurate and complete. We rely on our clients to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship
with our organization. If you are aware of an error in our information about you, please let us know, and we will correct it on request wherever possible. In some cases, we may ask for a written request for
correction. We protect clients’ personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure, or modification of
personal information and any unauthorized access to personal information. We will notify the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta, without delay, of a security breach affecting personal information if it creates a real risk of significant harm to individuals. We retain client personal information only as long as it is reasonable to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes. We render clients’ personal information non-identifying or destroy records containing personal information once the information is no longer needed. We use appropriate security measures when destroying clients’ personal information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records. While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that user data is secure and that users are protected, there always remains the risk of harm. The Internet as a whole can be insecure at times, and therefore we are unable to guarantee the security of user data beyond what is reasonably practical.
The minimum age to use our website is 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or use personal data from children under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a child
under 13 years of age, the personal data will be deleted as soon as possible. If a child under 13 years of age has provided us with personal data, their parent or guardian may contact our privacy officer.

Access to records containing personal information
Clients of Aspen Grove Counselling have a right of access to their own personal information in a record that is in our custody or under our control, subject to some exceptions. For example, organizations are
required under the Personal Information Protection Act to refuse to provide access to information that would reveal personal information about another individual. In addition, organizations are authorized under the Act to refuse access to personal information if disclosure would reveal confidential business information. Access may also be denied if the information is privileged or contained in mediation records.
If we refuse a request in whole or in part, we will provide the reasons for the refusal. In some cases where exceptions to access apply, we may withhold that information and provide you with the remainder
of the record. You may request access to your personal information by writing to Brenda Logan. You must provide sufficient information in your request to allow us to identify the information you are seeking. You may also request information about our use of your personal information and any disclosure of that information to persons outside our organization. You may also request a correction of an error or omission in your personal information. We will respond to your request within 45 calendar days unless an extension is granted. We may charge a reasonable fee to provide information but not to make a correction. We will advise you of any fees that may apply before beginning to process your request.
