What personal data I collect and why I collect them
Here’s how I use the data mentioned above, if I have your agreement:
Data collected through contact forms or emails to [email protected]
If you provided your email address via a form present on the PsihoSensus site, or by sending an email to [email protected], I will use it to send you an answer to your request. You will not receive promotional materials or newsletters unless you have given your exclusive consent for this.
Name and surname:
If you provided your first and last name, I will use them to personalize the responses to your email, or to call you on your name on the phone.
If you left your phone number, I’ll use it to contact you by phone call or send you a message.
Age is required to provide personalized services and to protect minors. For people under the age of 18, parental consent is important to be able to respond to requests. Thus, age is used to ask for parental consent, or to adjust the response or recommendations for your request.
Data from incoming messages or emails from you:
All the data about the issues you are experiencing, mental health problems, personal or relational issues are provided by you voluntarily in your emails or messages sent to me. I use this information to be able to send you a customized response to your request.
All of this data collected via contact forms and / or emails to [email protected] is stored for as long as necessary for the purposes of customer service and no more than 10 years after the last interaction. I do not use the information submitted by you for marketing purposes and do not pass on this information to other people or companies.
Data collected automatically:
The information automatically collected through different technologies or using cookies can be: browser details, operating system, IP, device, navigation activity. If you have agreed to collect this data (once you access the site, you consent to the processing of these data), I use this data for statistical purposes, internal review and changes and for the improvement of the site and its services. No information collected in this way is disclosed to other organizations or people for commercial purposes. I do not collaborate, promote or sell the information collected from the users of this site to other companies providing services or selling goods.
In the case of comments and testimonials, the data automatically collected is the IP address, email address, name or nickname.
Data collected through Google Analytics
PsihoSensus.eu uses Google Analytics to analyze and produce site traffic statistics. The data collected through Google Analytics serves to evaluate and further develop the site. Your consent to data collection through Google Analytics is required to use this Google service. You can withdraw your consent at any time by using the available methods in the cookie section of this Policy.
PsihoSensus.eu has an IP anonymization feature in Google Analytics, so users can not be identified by IP.
PsihoSensus.eu has a data processing agreement with Google Analytics, where data sharing with Google is disabled. I do not use other Google services in combination with Google Analytics cookies. The agreement was signed on 26 March 2018.
Data collected through comments and / or testimonials
When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comment forms, and also the visitor’s IP address and the user agent’s roster in the browser to help us detect spam.
If you leave a testimonial through the dedicated page it gets to me in email format with the ability to collect only the IP address and without the possibility of contacting you back. Using IP alone can not lead to your direct identification unless it is associated with other information about you (name, email address, etc.). If you leave contact or identification (name, phone) in the content of the testimony, I will ask you if you want to keep this data and made public. If you do not want it to be public, I will remove the data of identification so that the testimony becomes anonymous.
Content embedded from other websites
The articles on this site may include embedded content (for example, video, images, forms, etc.). The content embedded from other websites behaves exactly as if visitors viewed another website.

Who I share your data with?
I will never disclose or sell the data from you to third parties for marketing or commercial purposes. The security and privacy of your data is very important to me. However, the disclosure of the information you choose to provide to me voluntarily can only be made in exceptional cases appearing in the ethics code of the psychology profession in Romania and / or on the basis of official requests from public institutions implementing the law in Romania.
How long do I store your data?
All your personal data received and processed via contact forms or by email are stored for the time required to meet our goals, but no more than 10 years from the time of our interactions or your last visit to the site.
If you leave a comment, your comment and metadata are kept on the site indefinitely. So I can automatically recognize and approve all the following comments instead of keeping them in a moderation list. Only the PsihoSensus administrator can view and edit this information to be able to protect your identity.
If you leave a testimonial through the dedicated page it gets to me in email format with the ability to collect only the IP address and without the possibility of contacting you back. Once the testimonial is published, it is kept on the site indefinitely and completely anonymized so that you can not be identified by other visitors.
To ensure site protection, I use various internal security systems that can collect data from visitors to ensure security and protection against cyber attacks. Data collected in a cyber attack may be: visit date and time, browser data, operating system version, IP, location, site interaction, visited pages. These plugins do not collect user data except in the case of an attack.
The PsihoSensus.eu site is certified by SSL COMODO ECC to secure and encrypt data and provide users with a secure interaction with the site. Also, the site’s safety is also given by 2-step login.

Right of access your data. You can ask me to send you all the data about you that are kept, to check if the processing is grounded.
The right to rectify the data. You can ask for your data to be modified or corrected if you notice that it is being processed incorrectly.

Right to data portability. You can ask to receive a file containing all the data that I have about you.
The right of opposition. This right means you can oppose certain types of processing.
The right to oppose profiling. In the case of automatic data processing, you can oppose to be the subject of a profiling decision.
The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In Romania the authority where the complaints about data protection or exercise of rights are filed is the National Supervisory Authority for Personal Data Processing, ANSPDCP.
If you wish to exercise one or more of the rights outlined above or wish to withdraw your consent to the processing of your data, please contact me via email at [email protected] in which you state your wish to withdraw your consent or other claims regarding your rights.
How do I protect your data?
The https://psihosensus.eu site is hosted on https://www.siteground.com servers belonging to SiteGround Spain S.L., a company that complies with applicable European legislation, including GDPR.
Data protection is provided by internal security systems on both the site and the site servers. They are also protected by the measures outlined above in the “Site Security” section: Security applications, SSL encryption (COMODO ECC), and two-step login.
What procedures do I have for violation of data security?
While I have measures and applications available to protect your personal data as above, I can not guarantee 100% security in the online environment. In the case of a data breach, users whose data is processed by Valentina Dragomir via https://psihosensus.eu will be notified within 72 hours and the competent authority of Romania will be notified as well.
Violation of data security through cyber attacks entails civil and criminal liability under the law.
Which third parties receive data?
I do not receive or use any visitors data from any third party or advertisers.
What decisions I make and / or which profiles I automatically make with user data
I do not create profiles and do not provide services that involve making automated decisions.
Requirements for the disclosure of a government-controlled business
It’s not necessary. I do not have a government-controlled business and I do not have such requirements.
Confidentiality in the psychotherapy office
Valentina Dragomir knows and agrees with the regulations of the Code of Ethics of the College of Psychologists in Romania, the Law of mental health and the protection of people with mental disorders.
The Code of Ethics of the Romanian Psychotherapy Federation, the European Psychotherapy Association and the College of Psychologists in Romania state that “all information that becomes known to the psychotherapist as a result of the psychotherapeutic relationship” is subject to confidentiality. This means that all personal data revealed by the client during psychotherapy sessions are kept confidential in accordance with the requirements of the current Romanian and European legislation.
Personal information is not disclosed to other third parties, unless specifically requested. According to Art VI. (2) of the Code of Ethics and Deontology of the Romanian Psychologist’s Profession, it is stipulated that exceptions to the confidentiality rule are those in which confidentiality violations are necessary (not “allowed” but “necessary”):
for protection of public health
for prevention of imminent danger
to prevent the commission of a criminal act or to prevent the occurrence of such a deed or to remove the harmful consequences of such an act.
There are no violations of privacy in the following situations
sharing information obtained in the psychotherapeutic relationship to a third person for the purpose of supervising in the best interests of the client
sharing to the public for the purposes of scientific communication or case presentations
In the two above cases, all personal data that can lead to client/patient identification are eliminated. If it is essential to communicate data that may lead to customer identification, the psychotherapist will ask for the client’s written permission in advance.
