This web­site, https://exposuretherapy.ca (hence­forth, the “Site”), is oper­at­ed by Expo­sure Ther­a­py. Through­out the Site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Expo­sure Ther­a­py. We offer this Site, includ­ing all infor­ma­tion and tools avail­able from this Site to you, the user, con­di­tioned upon your absolute and cat­e­gor­i­cal accep­tance of all terms, con­di­tions, poli­cies, and notices stat­ed here (col­lec­tive­ly, the “Terms”). 

The head­ings used in this agree­ment are includ­ed for con­ve­nience only and will not lim­it or oth­er­wise affect these Terms.


The Site is pro­vid­ed on an “as-is” and “as-avail­able” basis. These Terms are sub­ject to change with­out notice. Expo­sure Ther­a­py makes no war­ranties or rep­re­sen­ta­tions that the Site, includ­ing its con­tent, infor­ma­tion, prod­ucts or ser­vices or oth­er mate­r­i­al avail­able through the Site, will be pro­vid­ed on an unin­ter­rupt­ed, time­ly, secure or error-free basis.

Unless oth­er­wise indi­cat­ed, no right, title, or inter­est is grant­ed in the con­tent, infor­ma­tion, prod­ucts or ser­vices, or oth­er mate­ri­als avail­able through the Site.

The names of all oth­er prod­ucts and ser­vices men­tioned on Expo­sure Ther­a­py are the trade­marks or trade-names of their respec­tive own­ers.

Noth­ing con­tained in the licence grant­ed under the lim­it­ed use clause shall be con­strued as con­fer­ring any right under any copy­right of Paul Kou­nine or any oth­er per­son who owns the copy­right.

All affil­i­ate hyper­links are marked with a light aqua­ma­rine-coloured cir­cle ° to facil­i­tate easy visu­al recog­ni­tion.
