Protecting Your Privacy
The policy guides and determines the manner in which NPC collects, utilizes, maintains and discloses information collected about a client. NPC implements appropriate data collection practices to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure and/or destruction of a client's personal information. As a client, your clinical information may not be disclosed to any third party unless: you consent in writing; or disclosure is necessary because you (or another person) is deemed at imminent risk of harm and/or your capacity to consent to psychological or mental health intervention is compromised; or there is a legal or other professional requirement to disclose via a subpoena, court order or other directive; or due to a child protection concern. Third party inquiries (in writing or by phone calls) about a client are generally not accepted nor responded to by NPC, unless the client (or legal guardian) has previously agreed to same in writing.
