Inner Psych might collect a member’s personal information and record it like name, email address, phone number etc. Your personal information is gathered as part of your assessment and treatment. Electronic and paper records are securely stored and used only by your psychologist and authorised personnel of the practice (as necessary). You are entitled to access your personal information kept on file at any stage, subject to any exceptions in the relevant legislation. This is to effectively provide mental health services and allow our members to seek the benefits of our various services.
Disclosure of personal information in psychologist appointments –
All personal information gathered by the psychologist during the provision of the psychological service will remain confidential except when:
1. it is subpoenaed by a court, or disclosure is otherwise required or authorised by law; or
2. failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at serious and imminent risk to life, health or safety; or
3. your prior approval has been obtained to disclose information.
In the event that unauthorised access, disclosure or loss of a client’s personal information occurs, Inner Psych will use all reasonable endeavours to minimise any risk of consequential serious harm. Please read our security policy for more information.
You will be asked to provide information when signing up to be a member. Method of communication will be up to the healthcare professional. Communication modes such as fax, in-person meeting (subject to change), messaging from external platforms such as Facebook will be not used by the professional.
Email communication is not secure and should therefore contain minimal personal information. It will primarily be used for administrative purposes such as setting up appointments and reminders and receiving invoices and receipts. You are responsible for any costs incurred in the provision of your own hardware, software, and data usage as required in engaging in any remote services.
InnerPsych does not hold responsibility for the leak /disclosure of personal information because of the lack of fully secure modes that are available. Please read our security policy for more clarification.
We take security seriously and will use all reasonable means to protect your information. However, no method of electronic communication, storage or transmission is 100 % secure. We, therefore, cannot guarantee absolute security of your data/information. Inner Psych does not hold any responsibility if information is disclosed by a third party (hacking or unauthorised intervention) or in a way that was not intended by InnerPsych
