The Louisiana Counseling Association (LCA) respects the privacy of its members and other visitors to its Web site or use our mobile conference applications (each an “App”). The Site and App are collectively the “Services.” LCA strongly believes that if electronic commerce and online activities are to flourish, consumers must be assured that information provided online is used responsibly and appropriately. To protect online privacy, LCA has implemented the following policy.
LCA collects information from you when you choose to provide it to us. This may include when you submit a membership application or request information from us, register for a conference or other event, or purchase a product.
The information we collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, mobile telephone number, photos or videos, user name and, if you are an LCA customer or member, credit/debit card number or other financial information.
From General Users. LCA does not automatically collect any personal information from users browsing its websites.
From LCA's Members, Conference Registrants, and Other Customers. To gain access to members-only resources and personalization features on lacounseling.org, members and other users are asked to register and provide some limited information. LCA asks users to provide their name, organization name, business phone, and email. Similar information may be submitted to LCA through membership applications, conference or seminar registration.
Disclosures to Third Parties. LCA also makes member contact information available through the LCA Membership Directory or the Find a Counselor and Find a Supervisor to other members using its websites and to those who register for its conferences. You are asked to accept inclusion in these three services. On occasion, LCA may also provide limited data to third parties that offer products and services. These limited data include names, job titles, companies, business addresses, and email addresses, but do not include business phone or fax numbers. LCA does not sell personal information of our members. Your personal information will be released by LCA to the divisions of which you are a member.
Credit Card Account Information. When members and customers choose to pay using their credit cards, LCA submits the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate third-party payment vendors for the limited purpose of processing your payment. LCA does not otherwise disclose your credit card information. Credit card information is not maintained on the LCA website.
Compliance with Law. We may provide access to your information, including personal information, when legally required to do so, to cooperate with legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our websites, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors of these websites or the public.
