Our Privacy Policy reflects our commitment to help you comply with applicable laws and standards of practice in all provinces of Canada.

We take our commitment to securing your client’s privacy very seriously. Each therapist is responsible for the personal information under his/her control.

Limiting Collection:

We collect information by fair and lawful means and collect only that information, which may be necessary for purposes, related to the provision of your member account.

Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention:

The information we request from you is used for the purposes of providing member service to Registered Massage Therapists. We understand the importance of privacy and confidentially as stated in PHIPA and PIPEDA. We will seek your express consent before using the information for purposes beyond the scope of the posted Privacy Statement.
