Like most website operators, SWinter Counseling and Consulting, LLC 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.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SWinter Counseling and Consulting, LLC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
