Privacy Policy

The use of personal information or data is essential to MindNation’s services and we are committed to protecting your privacy.

MindNation collects and uses personal information to identify you, establish eligibility to use our services, and to provide total wellbeing, and, as applicable, human resources services (such as company benefits, employee assistance programs, wellbeing programs and the like), through our website and social media platforms. We also use your information for our own purposes, including to deliver, analyze and improve our services and for communications.

We engineered this privacy policy to tell you:

  1. What personal information we might collect about you;
  2. What we might do with that personal information; and
  3. Your choices about the personal information you provide.

This policy covers our website, social media and services provided through these platforms or otherwise accessed by a user (such as our counselling and wellbeing services) and any other interactions you may have with us (by telephone, video conferencing, Facebook messenger, email, or in person). This policy specifically covers our handling of personal information relating to identifiable individuals, and does not apply to proprietary business information.

Some of our services are provided on behalf of our clients, which means our client remains primarily responsible for your personal information. We may be providing services on behalf of your employer or company. In these circumstances, we may re-direct a query about our use of your personal information to our client.

As part of using our services or interacting with us, we may collect and process some details about you. When we do so, we will collect, use or share your personal information with your consent for the purposes we've informed you of, or as may be otherwise permitted or required by law. Your consent can be express or implied. For example, by participating in your benefits plan, you consent to MindNation's collection and use of your personal information to provide services to that plan. In some situations, we may get consent directly from you (including as described in this privacy policy). In other situations, we may rely on the consent you provided to your employer or benefits sponsor.

You can withhold or withdraw your consent for us to collect, use or share your personal information, as long as there are no legal or contractual requirements for us to process your information. Depending on the circumstances, however, withdrawal of your consent may impact our ability to serve you, or in the case of administering benefits, it may prevent us from processing your claims.

We collect personal information in the following ways:

  1. Directly from you;
  2. From your use of MindNation's services, programs and website;
  3. From your employer, association, company or benefits plan sponsor, provided that you have given them your consent;
  4. When you attend a MindNation-initiated site or event;
  5. When you apply for a position at MindNation;
  6. If you contact us with a grievance, complaint or inquiry;
  7. When you engage with us over social media; and/or
  8. From legally authorized third parties.

We will not knowingly collect, use or share personal information if you are under the age of majority in your area or country without the permission of your parent or guardian. If you are under age and want to access our counseling and wellbeing services, your parent or guardian needs to contact MindNation on your behalf.

Our collection and use of your personal information depends on what products and services your organization or company chooses to make available to you and what products and services you choose to have made available to you using our website and social media platforms, which MindNation's products and services you choose to participate in, and what information you choose to provide to us.
