between the Company and such a user.
Therefore, at the Company's discretion, with or without
explanation, users under the age of 18 may be restricted

relevant to the services they offer. Users of the
sites should thoroughly read and understand this entire
submission of personal information, publicly or confidentially,

the Sponsor, contractual or otherwise, this
relationship is separate and distinct from the user's
relationship with the Company, its sites, and its services.

The Company fully supports COPPA, which limits the collecting
of personal data for anyone under the age of 13.
In order to protect the privacy of younger users, at no
time will information knowingly be collected from any
individuals under the age of 18. Self-referrals for treatment
are common. However, the Company and its Sponsors
will immediately seek to contact any noted authoritative
adults mentioned in the self referral. If no such adult
is mentioned, the self-referral of the minor will be destroyed
or deleted from our databases. The Company
assumes no liability for adherence to statutes, laws,
and policies in this regard, as it attempts, in good
faith, to abide by such restrictions.
The Company will take whatever means possible to protect
and ensure the privacy of our users and we recommend
that our users do the same.
Individuals may choose to take part in discussion boards
sponsored or run by the Company and its Sponsors.
These users have the opportunity to share their information
publicly on those boards. If an individual chooses
to share his or her private information on one of our
public forums, we cannot and will not be held responsible
for the individual's privacy.
As a registered user or participant in any of the site's
events, or private or community forums, you are
responsible for your own communications and are responsible
for the consequences of your conduct. The
Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to
restrict registration to future activities, online
or offline, if we, or our sponsors, receive reports of
inappropriate conduct by anyone attending the events,
engaging in sponsor services, and/or the events and services
of the Company. Sponsors and users must not
engage in any conduct that may be inappropriate or which
may be perceived as inappropriate by others.
The Company offers parents a place to meet, and to become
connected with therapeutic, academic, and
intervention professionals, as they seek help or insight
in dealing with troubled children. However,
the Company does not, in any way, guarantee the services
or quality of the people or organizations
they will encounter on the sites. This includes the Sponsors,
their agents, contractors, associates,
and others who may or may not actually represent the Sponsors.
Any relationship with the Sponsors is separate an
distinct from users' relationships with the Company. You
agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Company,
its sites, its services, contractors, affiliates, subsidiaries,
officers, employees, event locations,
service providers, agents and other partners from any
claim or liability, regardless of the process or
outcome of their relationship with Sponsors.
Users understand that the Company does not perform background
checks and does not screen or verify the
personal information other users. Moreover, the Company
and the users accept that Sponsors are bound by
regulations and laws beyond the scope of the Company and
its sites. Therefore, should dispute or action
be engaged between you and a Sponsor, you hereby agree
that such actions and disputes not involve the
Company and its sites, regardless of what is written,
implied, said, or represented on the sites, or
through the sites' newsletters or other communications
in regard to the Sponsors claims or representations.
Instead, you agree to pursue whatever action, if any,
upon the basis of existing law, statutes, regulations,
etc., already governing the conduct, licensing, and status
of the Sponsors in their individual industries,
and further agrees that such action not involve the Company,
its sites, contractors, employees, or service
providers. Sponsors also hereby agree that their status
as sponsors hinges, in part, on their agreement to
indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its sites, its
services, contractors, affiliates, subsidiaries,
officers, employees, event locations, service providers,
agents and other partners from any claim or liability
with regard to their relationship with site users.
By using the sites you agree that the Company and the
Sponsors are not responsible for damages that may occur
during or after workshops, seminars, treatment services,
or other events, that may occur as a result of their
affiliation between individuals they may meet at or through
such services or events. By using the sites, or
attending, enrolling, or using the events or services
of the Company and its sponsors, you agree to
indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its Sponsors,
contractors, affiliates, subsidiaries, officers,
employees, event locations, agents and other partners
from any claim or liability.
Unless explicitly indicated otherwise, the Company's
events are limited to workshops. All other events
and off-line, face-to-face services are coordinated and
organized by Sponsors. You hereby understand and
acknowledge that by registering to participate in any
event or service, in order to conduct the event or
service, your first and last name, as well as any other
relevant information, will be shared by the
Company with the Sponsor responsible for producing, coordinating
and providing the event or service.
If you submit any personal information regarding yourself
or another person, through the established
methods and portals for submitting such information, you
hereby agree that such submission is a request
for the Company to share this information with any one
or all of the Sponsors, as it deems necessary,
in its sole discretion.
The Company's events may be recorded via photography,
video, audio, and other devices. By attending and
participating in the Company's events or workshops, you
agree to such recordings, which may or may not
specifically feature your image, words, and/or conduct,

About the Company
The Company is the sole owner and operator, via contract
with Intuit, Inc., of the database system
through which the sites collect information. The Company
seeks to be an all-encompassing service
designed to help parents and families in the broad aspects
of the troubled teen industry. The
Company provides a web-based portal for people to connect
with others having similar difficulties,
as well as to find professionals, intervention specialists,
treatment programs, etc. To facilitate
this, the Company offers Blog(s), newsletter(s), workshop(s),
and other services to develop
interest-driven communication for the welfare of site
What Information is Collected or Tracked
To benefit from the services and products offered by
the Company, a person may voluntarily submit
certain personally identifiable information. Users may
browse the website at no cost and without
entering any personally identifiable information. The
term "user" is defined generally as any person,
including Members and visitors, who access the website
for any purpose. The provisions in this privacy
policy pertain to all users of the website, unless designated
Information gathered by the Company falls into two categories:
directly submitted and indirectly (passively)
Directly Submitted Information
Submission of personally identifiable information by
a user about him/herself and/or a minor in his/her
custody, control, or legal interest, may occur and be
classified into two categories: Public and Private.
The Company's goal is to provide forums for people to
get together, and to find help. To this end, the
Company allows the posting of certain personally identifiable
information to be placed in a general
public viewing area of the sites which cannot be used
to contact a particular user ("Public Information").
Most Public Information is optional and its public posting
is encouraged so that the user has the best
experience possible with the Company and its Sponsors
services. A user's public information includes,
but is not limited to, any of the following listed separately
or in combination: photo, gender, age,
personal issues or problems. Users may also choose an
Online Name to be used in public areas
(such as in the Strongblog). We strongly encourage all
members to not use their real name or a
variation of their name in such forums, but to select
an Online Name that is unique and different.
For users to access the services and events of the Company
and its Sponsors, and to enable the Company
to provide its services, products and operational support
for the site, we request certain personally
identifiable "Private Information" through our
contact forms. These forms collect (but are not limited
to the collection of) information such as: first and last
name, home address, email address, telephone
number, therapeutic issues, etc. Note that although Private
Information is "requested" via the forms,
the forms themselves have no "required" fields.
In other words, users are left at their own discretion
to provide the Company and its Sponsors as much, or as
little information as they desire. Fulfilment
of user's needs may be impacted by the provision, or lack
of provision, of requested information, but
the choice to provide is left completely at the user's
discretion. The user assumes full liability and
responsibility for "not" providing Private Information
requested via the forms, if the Company and/or
its Sponsors cannot fulfill their needs.
The Company requires financial information for payments
(such as a billing address, checking information,
name of credit card holder, credit card number and expiration
date). However, the Company uses secure,
third-party financial systems for this purpose, and neither
collects nor stores such information in its
Indirectly Submitted Information
Users may explore the sites and access certain portions
without directly providing any personally
However, the sites indirectly collect certain types of
information from users when they visit each URL.
Such passively submitted information collected from users
is not classified as personally identifiable information,
nor is it linked to personally identifiable information.
Like most websites, we use log files. This includes internet
protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit
pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks
to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement.
The company does not employ the use of Clear Gifs (a.k.a.
Web Beacons/Web Bugs) anywhere on its site
or in its emails.
How Information is Used
The company does not sell, lease, disclose, trade, or
give away your personally identifiable information
to third parties outside the parameters of this privacy
policy and this agreement. We may provide aggregate
statistics about our members and visitors regarding demographic
information, traffic patterns, user movements
and related website information to reputable third parties,
but these statistics do not disclose personally
identifiable information from or about a particular user.
Public Information provided by a user is typically viewable
to all other users of the sites. The user
has the option to not provide nor publicize personal information.
Publicly posted information should not
encourage or allow other users to determine your real
name, home or billing street address, phone number,
email address, etc.
We strongly encourage all users to not use their real
name or a variation of their name, but to select an
Online Name and presence that is unique and different.
THE COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR USERS WHO INTENTIONALLY
OR OTHERWISE DISCLOSE PRIVATE INFORMATION TO
THE PUBLIC VIA EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE, OR IN PUBLIC FORUMS
WHICH ARE PUBLICLY VIEWABLE.
The Company uses a user's personally identifiable Private
Information primarily for three reasons:
1) customer service and operational issues involving the
services of the Company and its Sponsors;
2) billing issues; and
3) to investigate violations of this agreement, and to
conduct any enforcement measures.
All Private Information submitted by the user is kept
confidential and will not be disclosed
to third parties except as required by law; to protect
the visitors and members, employees,
or property of the Company; and in the event of a merger
or a sale or transfer of all or
substantially all of the business, assets, or equity of
the Company any portion thereof
to another company or entity.
Special Offers and Updates
Users will occasionally receive information on current
or new events, services, workshops,
or special deals from the Company or its Sponsors. Out
of respect for the privacy of our users,
we provide the option to cease these types of communications
through opt-out measures. Users who
later wish to receive such communications, normally through
the Demanding Strength Newsletter,
may reapply to receive the correspondence.

Sponsors and Service Providers
It is necessary to share personal information with the
company's Sponsors, and to the employees and
contractors that provide internal support to the Company's
and the Sponsors' operations, including
billing, and responses to inquiries, which may include
enrollment in treatment services, workshops,
intervention programs, etc. For example, the company uses
an outside merchant services company to
bill for services. The Sponsors and the Company use employees
and contractors to provide a flexible,
trained workforce to respond to inquires. Some inquiries
may, with the user's permission, result in
referrals to entities and organizations not directly affiliated
with the Company's or the Sponsor's
services. Such situations may include the referral of
a person to an educational consultant or a
