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 users.
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 otherwise.
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
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
therapist who is more qualified to help with the user’s situation.
We have been advised by our operational service providers that they do not retain, share, store or
use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
THOUGH WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PRESERVE USER PRIVACY, WE MAY NEED TO DISCLOSE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE
INFORMATION WHEN REQUIRED BY LAW OR TO COMPLY WITH LEGAL PROCESSES; TO RESPOND TO CLAIMS THAT ANY OF
THE CONTENT VIOLATES THE PROPERTY, PRIVACY, PUBLICITY OR OTHER RIGHTS OF OTHERS; TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS,
PROPERTY OR SAFETY OF THE COMPANY, ITS EMPLOYEES, USERS AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC; OR IN ASSISTING A
CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
