Data Security

The security of customer information is very important to us, and we take a number of steps to safeguard it.

We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the personal information we collect from and about our customers and Site visitors.

The security of your information is important to us, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Children’s Information

Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. We do not direct the Services to, nor do we knowingly collect any personal information from, children under the age of 16. If INSIGHT TREATMENT learns that a child under the age of 16 has provided personal information to the Site, it will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from its files.

Third Party Content, Links, and Plug-ins

The Site may have links to third party websites or applications, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the practices of such sites.

The Site may also offer you the ability to interact with social plugins from third party social media sites, which may allow us and/or the social media site to receive personal information from or about you. In some cases, we may know that you clicked on a social plugin, such as a Facebook Like or Twitter Follow button, or receive other information from the social media sites. Similarly, if you have previously provided personal information to a third party operating a plug-in on the Site, then such third party may recognize you on the Site. Your use of social network plugins is subject to each social media site’s privacy policy, which may be different from ours, so please read these policies carefully to understand their policies and your options. As with linked sites, we have no control over the information that is collected, stored, or used by social network plugins, and are not responsible for the practices of such sites.

Any personal information you choose to disclose through our Services, in blogs, on discussion or message boards, in chat rooms, interactive forums, rating or reviews, or on other public areas on the Site, or other third-party websites that this Site may link to, becomes public information.

U.S. State Privacy Rights

Residents of California, Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, and Utah have certain rights concerning the processing and use of their Personal Data.  The rights described herein are subject to exemptions under applicable law.  For purposes of this section, the term “Personal Data” includes both “Personal Information” and “Personal Data” as defined by applicable law.

If your Personal Data is subject to a privacy law in your state, you may have certain privacy rights with regard to that information.  You may have the right to:

  • Know, access, and confirm your Personal Data.
  • Delete the Personal Data we have about you, subject to exceptions under applicable law.
  • Correct inaccuracies in your Personal Data.
  • Obtain your Personal Data in a portable and readily usable format.
  • Opt-out of the use or processing of your Personal Data for profiling or targeted advertising.
  • Opt-out of the sale of your Personal Data.

Under certain state laws, you may also have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of any of these privacy rights.  We will not discriminate against you because you have exercised any of your rights.

Certain state laws may also provide you the right to appeal our decisions regarding your rights requests if we do not respond to your requests or do not take action regarding your requests. Additionally, if you are a resident of the state of California, you may have a right to pursue legal action for improper handling of your Personal Data.

How to Submit a Request

If you wish to exercise the rights listed above, and are a resident of a state that provides such privacy rights, you may submit a request by emailing, by calling us toll-free at 888-295-9995, or by using the form below. We will provide your Personal Data to you in writing in a readily usable format.  If you choose to submit your request via email, you must include “Privacy Rights Request” in the subject line and clearly provide us with the following information: what type of request you are making, your full name, email address, and valid physical address.  You may only make one request per email.

We are required to provide you with access to your Personal Data or delete your Personal Data only in response to verifiable consumer requests. In order to protect our customers’ personal information, we will verify your identity following receipt of your request. We will compare the information you provide to us in your request to any information we may have in our possession in order to verify your request. We may also contact you to request additional information in relation to your request. Please promptly respond to any follow-up inquiries so that we may verify your identity. For security purposes, our verification process requires an exact match of at least three data points you provide to us with data points we maintain in our records. The information collected through this process will be used for verification purposes only. Please provide your state of residence and at least three of the following data points when you submit your request:

  • First and last name
  • Email address associated with your INSIGHT TREATMENT account
  • Telephone number associated with your INSIGHT TREATMENT account
  • If you have used our Services or Facilities, please provide the date of your last visit or appointment (day, month, and year)
  • Mailing address

If you request that we provide you with specific pieces of information about you, we may apply heightened verification standards than what we would apply to other types of requests. This measure is in place to help ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who does not have the right to receive it.

Authorized Agent

Please note that you may authorize an agent to exercise any of these rights on your behalf by emailing, by calling us toll-free at 888-295-9995, or by using the form below. If you use an agent, we will take measures to verify your agent’s authorization similar to the verification described above for fulfilling any access or deletion requests. We may require more information to ensure proper verification of you and your agent’s identity and authorization.

Categories of Personal Data Disclosed for a Business Purpose

We share Personal Data about you with service providers and third parties for business purposes, such as operational purposes and other purposes related to providing you with the Services you seek from us.  For more information about the business purposes for which we disclose Personal Data, see “How We Use Information” and see “Information We Collect” for what types of information may be shared.

“Do Not Sell” Rights; Sharing for Cross-Context Behavioral Advertising, Profiling, or Targeted Advertising

We may disclose your Personal Data for the following purposes, which are not a sale: (i) for reasons mentioned above; (ii) if you direct us to share Personal Data; (iii) to comply with your requests under applicable law; and (iv) as otherwise required or permitted by applicable law.

We do not sell Personal Data or share Personal Data about you for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising, profiling, or targeted advertising.

Deletion Rights

You may request that we delete your Personal Data that we have collected directly from you.  Under applicable law, we may decline to delete your Personal Data under certain circumstances, for example, if we need the Personal Data to complete transactions or provide products or services you have requested or that are reasonably anticipated, for security purposes, for internal business purposes (including maintaining business records), to comply with law, or to exercise or defend legal claims.  Note also that we are not required to delete your Personal Data that we did not collect directly from you.  We require a reasonable or high degree of certainty that the requester is the consumer for which a deletion request is applicable, depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Data.

Additional California Privacy Rights

We do not share Personal Data as defined by California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (“Shine the Light Law”) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes absent your consent.  If you are a California resident, you may request information about our compliance with the Shine the Light Law by emailing us at or sending a letter to Insight Treatment 115 Main St, El Segundo, CA 90245, (Attention: Frederik Schulin – Privacy Inquiry).  Any such request must include “California Privacy Rights Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code.  Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per individual each year.

Sensitive Personal Information and Sensitive Data

If you are a resident of California, we will not process your Sensitive Personal Information, and if you are a resident of Virginia, Colorado, or Connecticut, we will not process your Sensitive Data (as that term is defined under the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act; the Colorado Privacy Act; and Connecticut’s Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring) without your prior consent.

HIPAA Policy

The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a Federal program that requires that all medical records and other individually identifiable health information used or disclosed by us in any form, whether electronically, on paper, or orally are kept properly confidential. HIPAA gives you, the patient, the right to
understand and control how your personal health information (PHI) is used. HIPAA provides penalties for covered entities that misuse personal health information.

As required by HIPAA, we prepared this explanation of how we are to maintain the privacy of your health information and how we may disclose your personal information.

We may use and disclose your medical records only for the following purposes: treatment, payment, and health care operation.

  • Treatment means providing, coordinating, or managing healthcare and related services by one or more healthcare providers. An example of this is if you are referred to a primary care doctor or another specialist.
  • Payment means such activities as obtaining reimbursement for services, confirming coverage, billing or collections activities, and utilization review. An example of this would include sending your insurance company a bill for your visit.
  • Health Care Operations include the business aspects of running our practice, such as conducting quality assessments and improving activities, auditing functions, cost management analysis, and customer service. An example of this would be patient survey cards.
  • The practice may also be required or permitted to disclose your PHI for law enforcement or other legitimate reasons. In all situations, we shall do our best to assure its continued confidentiality to the extent possible.

We may also create and distribute de-identified health information by removing all reference to individually identifiable information.

We may contact you, by phone or in writing, to provide appointment reminders or information about treatment alternatives or other health-related benefits and services, in addition to other fundraising communications, that may be of interest to you. You do have the right to “opt out” with respect to receiving fundraising communications from us.

The following use and disclosures of PHI will only be made pursuant to us receiving a written authorization from you:

  • Most uses and disclosure of psychotherapy notes (these are not part of your medical record under HIPAA);
  • Uses and disclosure of your PHI for marketing purposes, including subsidized treatment and health care operations;
  • Disclosures that constitute a sale of PHI under HIPAA; and
  • Other uses and disclosures not described in this notice.

You may revoke such authorization in writing and we are required to honor and abide by that written request, except to the extent that we have already taken actions relying on your prior authorization.

You may have the following rights with respect to your PHI.

  • The right to request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of PHI, including those related to disclosures of family members, other relatives, close personal friends, or any other person identified by you. We are, however, not required to honor a request restriction except in limited circumstances which we shall explain if you ask. If we do agree to the restriction, we must abide by it unless you agree in writing to remove it.
  • The right to reasonable requests to receive confidential communications of Protected Health Information by alternative means or at alternative locations.
  • The right to inspect and copy your PHI.
  • The right to amend your PHI.
  • The right to receive an accounting of disclosures of your PHI.
  • The right to obtain a paper copy of this notice from us upon request.
  • The right to be advised if your unprotected PHI is intentionally or unintentionally disclosed.

If you have paid for services “out of pocket”, in full and in advance, and you request that we not disclose PHI related solely to those services to a health plan, we will accommodate your request, except where we are required by law to make a disclosure.

We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your Protected Health Information and to provide you the notice of our legal duties and our privacy practice with respect to PHI.

This notice if effective as of January 1, 2020 and it is our intention to abide by the terms of the Notice of Privacy Practices and HIPAA Regulations currently in effect. We reserve the right to change the terms of our Notice of Privacy Practice and to make the new notice provision effective for all PHI that we maintain. We will post and you may request a written copy of the revised Notice of Privacy Practice from our office.

You have recourse if you feel that your protections have been violated by our office. You have the right to file a formal, written complaint with our office and with the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Civil Rights. We will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint.

Effective Date (last updated):  November 2, 2023
