Hong Kong Privacy Notice
To protect the privacy of the service users, ComPsych along with its partner in Hong Kong, Four Dimensions Consulting Ltd., strictly follow the professional guidelines for implementation of Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance and will keep the personal data of the service users and the contents of interviews in strict confidence. The information will not be disclosed without the consent of the service users, except for the following situations:
- A Court Order has been issued and demands for personal data of the service user concerned; or
- The service user is found exhibiting high suicidal risk or likely doing harm to others.
If such information is disclosed, we will, as far as possible, inform the service user that we will provide or have provided the related information to the third party. If we cannot inform the service user in advance, we will inform the service user afterwards as soon as possible. However, if this procedure is perceived as increasing the possibility of injury to the service user or others, we can decide to omit it.
We will seek the service user’s written consent before making use of the content of interview for external professional intervention. Please be assured that giving consent or not will not affect the provision of service.
