How We Collect Other Information

We and our third party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

Confidentiality is a foundation for trust and is a priority in every IPUL service. When you meet with a Parent Education Coordinator, you can trust that your privacy will be protected. Confidentiality allows you to feel safe in discussing your information with full confidence that what you say remains between you and your coordinator.

There are some specific limits to confidentiality that exist within the provision of privacy law.  Some of these include:

If you are under 18 years of age or are a dependent adult, a parent or legal guardian needs to approve service provision, and may request access to service information and/or may authorize its release to other parties.

If you are determined to be in imminent danger of harming yourself or someone else.

If there is disclosure of abuse or neglect to a child or dependent adult.

Where there is a mental health supervisor overseeing service delivery.

Where others are legally required.

Release of Information

Aside from the above exceptions, IPUL’s policy prohibits the release of any personal information without proper authorization. personal information MAY be disclosed or released to any designated third party, ONLY AFTER receiving an explicit and informed written/signed authorization from you or a parent/legal guardian, as applicable.  This is called a Release of Information (ROI).

Please fill out a ROI if you would like to:

  • Authorize IPUL to release a copy of your records.
  • Authorize IPUL to share information from your records with a third party.
  • Authorize IPUL to request records from another provider.

When personal information is appropriately released, it is the policy of IPUL that the minimum necessary information be disclosed.
