The Counseling Blog (Harvinder Saraswat) works to keep this website free from errors (both technical and in written content) and to provide content that is pertinent and helpful. However, errors can and will occur. Servers crash. Typing errors are missed. Though a lot of hard work is put in to prevent these, but they do occur. Thus I put forth the following disclaimers. By browsing the The Counseling Blog you are accepting these terms.

Text Content Is Not A Replacement for Counseling
The text content on the The Counseling Blog, in books or articles (in print or on other sites) or in any other resource mentioned on this site are not a substitute or replacement for face-to-face counseling and therapy. We seek to provide content that we hope will be informative and helpful, but for a variety of reasons we cannot address any specific person's counseling needs through this site.

The information contained in this blog is intended to educate, inform and entertain. This should not be used as a subsitute for consultation and treatment  with a licensed mental health professional. If you have questions related to the material contained in this site please contact me or a licensed mental health professional of your choice.

Website Privacy Policy
We do not collect any personal information from users browsing the The Counseling Blog . The information that we do collect does not identify individual users. This includes data such as: Internet Protocol (IP) address, web browser, operating system, Internet Service Provider (ISP), connection speed, referring/exit pages, pages visited, and date/time stamps. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, analyze website usage, and gather broad demographic information. The software which we use to collect and analyze this data does not collect or link to personally identifiable information; all data is analyzed in aggregate.

No Warranties On Website Content
Even though we hope that our content (including content that we have not written, but that we may reference or link to) will be generally helpful we do not warranty it in any way. We do not take any responsibility for any outcomes that may result from any decisions, actions, or inactions that an individual may take as a result of reading the content on this site. All content, past and present, is provided on an “As Is” basis, and The Counseling Blog makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

The Counseling Blog shall not be liable under any circumstances for any direct, indirect or other damages that might occur in connection with your reading the content of this website. By reading our website you agree to indemnify, defend and hold The Counseling Blog , its counselor(Harvinder Saraswat), harmless against any and all claims, damages, losses, etc. that you might incur as a result of browsing this website.

External Links
We will occasionally link to external sites (e.g., sites which have an address different from http://counsellinginfo.blogspot.com/). External links are never endorsements in and of themselves. If we endorse or recommend an individual, organization or resource we will articulate that clearly. Additionally, we have no control over and take no responsibility for the content of other sites. Some sites change their content frequently. Some sites change hands (though we try to avoid linking to sites that we anticipate will have a short lifespan) and dramatically change content. Sites can even be hijacked, or hacked, and have content (usually offensive in nature) posted on them illegally by the intruders. The above sections on this page apply to external links (e.g., external link content is not a substitute for face-to-face counseling, we make no warranties regarding external link content, and we are not liable for external link content).
