Short non legal Version.
We store the minimal amount of data that is humanly possible so we can serve you.
As you will see from the fact we are one of if not the only psychiatry and addiction website that uses bank grade security and encryption on our website we take privacy and security very seriously.
As Costa Rehab (the operator of this website) is a Gibraltar based company we understand how people talk and especially in small communitys things are said.
Our entire business is built on privacy, discretion or security.
What do we share with other people?
If you call and want help from us we will only need your first name and your phone number. Sometimes it may help if we have an email but we do not need that.
We will give your phone number and first name to the Psychiatrist or addiction clinic and they of course are well known for being private and secure.
Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information.
Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected. We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law defined in Gibraltar.
We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date. We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
End of legal stuff we needed to put.
A sample of the data that a website collects typically from a visitor.
When you go to maybe Google.co. and search for `Psychiatrist Marbella`.
When you Click on a google result and come to our site we see this in our statistics.
The red part I blocked out is an IP address which allows your computer to talk to the internet and our website.
An IP address is the only part that is identifiable to you but its almost impossible to find out who you are just by your IP adress as we would need a court order to get your Internet Service Provider to hand over the data and of course nobody has a reason to do that.
We do not know what you searched in Google most of the time to find us.
The data above is from Statcounter which is a third party company that tracks visitors for us. You can read more on the Statcounter.com website.
Phone calls are answered on a Blackphone.
When you phone us we have your phone number and when you call us we answer on a Blackphone which is the most private phone there is. You can see more about these phones at the blackphone.ch website.
