PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE.

By using this site, you signify your assent to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement. If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions contained herein, do not use this site.

1. Definitions.

"CivilPsych.com” and the “CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory” is an interactive on-line service operated by Civil Psychological Services, Inc. consisting of information services and content provided by CivilPsych.com, affiliates of CivilPsych.com and other third parties. "Client" means each person who accesses CivilPsych.com for access to and use of CivilPsych.com information OR establishes a connection ("Account") for use of its services.

2. General.

(A) CivilPsych.com is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, treatment, medical treatment, psychotherapy, counseling, or mental health services. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding any mental health symptom or medical condition. Never disregard professional psychological or medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on CivilPsych.com.

(B) CivilPsych.com does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on CivilPsych.com. Reliance on any information provided by CivilPsych.com, CivilPsych.com employees, others appearing on CivilPsych.com at the invitation of CivilPsych.com, or other visitors to CivilPsych.com is solely at your own risk.

(C) CivilPsych.com provides the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory as a public service for those interested in working with mental health care providers (therapists, counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, etc.).


(D) CivilPsych.com cannot and does not provide any warranties related to the information contained in or resulting services from any of the mental health care providers (therapists, counselors, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and other health providers) listed in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory. Information accessed through the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory is provided “AS IS” and without any warranty, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness.

(E) CivilPsych.com does not examine, determine, or warrant the competence of any mental health care provider listed in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory. CivilPsych.com does not warrant that the mental health care providers listed in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory are currently or properly licensed. Under no circumstances should the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory be used to verify the credentials of mental health care providers. Please contact your State Professional Licensing Board to verify the licensure of a provider. Use of the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory to locate, contact, or receive services from a mental health care provider is wholly voluntary and will not result in any liability against CivilPsych.com. In no event shall CivilPsych.com be liable for damages to any user of the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory.

(F) The Credential Check Seal, found on the profile page of some therapists listed in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory, indicates that a particular therapist, if he or she is in a jurisdiction that requires licensure in order to practice, has had their state license confirmed as active with their State Licensing Board. In jurisdictions that do not require licensure in order to practice, the Credential Verification Seal indicates that educational requirements have been met.

 

Credential Verification is voluntary, meaning that a member without the Credential Verification Seal is not necessarily unlicensed. The Credential Verification Seal does not indicate that the therapist is licensed in every state, province, or country they are practicing in; instead it signifies that the therapist has an active license in the state in which their license was granted. All therapists in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory with the Verified Credential Seal are asked to reapply for verification annually in September. If a therapist in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory does not reapply by the deadline or if there license cannot be confirmed, the Credential Verification Seal is removed.

Because of the potential for human error, please be aware that the Credential Verification Seal cannot serve as a guaranteed indication that a particular therapist listed in the CivilPsych.com Therapist Directory is currently or properly licensed. Thus, CivilPsych.com does not warrant that the mental health care providers listed in this Therapist Directory are currently or properly licensed. Under no circumstances should this Therapist Directory be used to verify the credentials of mental health care providers. Please contact your State Professional Licensing Board to verify the licensure of a provider. Furthermore, CivilPsych.com does not examine, determine, or warrant the competence of any mental health care provider listed in this Directory.

 

(G) CivilPsych.com may offer access to free or fee-based “Web Conferences.” “Web Conference” refers to a live or archived audio and/or video presentation available on and accessible from CivilPsych.com. All Clients who participate in any Web Conference offered by CivilPsych.com do so on a completely voluntary basis. CivilPsych.com’s provision of Web Conferences is based solely on CivilPsych.com’s discretion. Clients must register as a public member in order to gain access to Web Conferences presented by CivilPsych.com.

 

It is CivilPsych.com’s intention to provide access to the Web Conference to all Clients who have registered for said Web Conference. However, due to potential technical complications, presenter schedules and availability, Acts of God, or other unforeseen circumstances, registration for any Web Conference is in no way a guarantee of access or participation in the Web Conference.

 

By registering for a paid event, Client authorizes CivilPsych.com to charge your credit card the associated fee for the event. In the event that a scheduled fee-based Web Conference does not occur due to technical complications related to the CivilPsych.com Web Conference platform CivilPsych.com will provide a refund of this fee to all registered Clients or will reschedule the event. Clients who are unable to access the Web Conference because of issues related to Client phone, internet or personal computer issues are not eligible for refunds of fee-based Web Conferences. Additionally, refunds are given to Clients who cancel their Web Conference registration at least two weeks prior to the event they registered for. Refunds are not given for purchasing an archived recording nor are refunds given to Clients who are dissatisfied with a live or recorded Web-Conference.

 

Clients who register for participation in a Web Conference must provide a valid email address. CivilPsych.com will store all registered Client’s email addresses and manage said email addresses in accordance with CivilPsych.com’s Privacy Policy. Through registration for access to a Web Conference provided by CivilPsych.com all Clients agree and understand that CivilPsych.com may contact said Clients using the email address provided at the time of registration.

Never disregard professional psychological or medical advice nor delay in seeking professional advice or treatment because of something you have read on CivilPsych.com.
