Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis (NPAP) we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact [email protected].

National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis (“NPAP”) operates several websites including, and It is NPAP’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, NPAP collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NPAP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NPAP’s visitors use its website. From time to time, NPAP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

NPAP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. NPAP only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to NPAP’s websites choose to interact with NPAP in ways that require NPAP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that NPAP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who renew their annual membership at Annual Membership Dues for 2019 to provide name, home address, office address, phone number and email address. Those who engage in transactions with NPAP – by submitting a new student application, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and career information required to process those application. In each case, NPAP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with NPAP. NPAP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

NPAP may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, NPAP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

NPAP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on NPAP’s behalf or to provide services available at NPAP’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. NPAP will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, NPAP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when NPAP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NPAP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a member of NPAP and have supplied your email address, NPAP may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with NPAP and our services. We primarily use our various websites to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. NPAP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. NPAP uses cookies to help NPAP identify and track visitors, their usage of NPAP website, and their website access preferences. NPAP visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using NPAP’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of NPAP’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If NPAP, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that NPAP goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of NPAP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, NPAP may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in NPAP’s sole discretion. NPAP encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
