Prenursing Smarter respects your privacy. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it, such as when you provide email contact information to subscribe to the Prenursing Smarter email list newsletter, send feedback to Prenursing Smarter, register for one of Prenursing Smarter courses or respond to a survey.
If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to Prenursing Smarter, to survey you about your use or opinion of Prenursing Smarter, or to ask for your support. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our files.
We do not make your contact information or any other personally identifiable information available to anyone outside Prenursing Smarter or its service providers (who use the information only for authorized Prenursing Smarter purposes) unless we are legally required to do so.
How We Gather Information from Users
In addition to the above, we collect certain anonymous (non-personally identifiable) information to help us improve the Prenursing Smarter web site and to evaluate the access and use of Prenursing Smarter materials and the impact of Prenursing Smarter on the worldwide educational community:
We collect information you provide about your use of and satisfaction with Prenursing Smarter through email you send us, through the Prenursing Smarter feedback form, and through Prenursing Smarter surveys, whether or not you voluntarily include your contact information.
We may use web analysis tools that are built into the Prenursing Smarter web site to measure and collect anonymous session information.
We also use “cookies” to improve your Prenursing Smarter web experience and to collect anonymous information about how you use Prenursing Smarter. However, cookies are not required for Prenursing Smarter use. If your browser is configured not to accept cookies, you will still be able to access Prenursing Smarter and its content.
When we report information about Prenursing Smarter access, use, and impact, we report aggregate, non-personally identifiable data. Occasionally, we report quoted feedback from users. We do not attribute feedback to specific individuals unless we obtain permission to use that person’s name along with the feedback.

How We Protect Your Personal Information
We consider protecting the security of your personal information extremely important. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (sometimes referred to as “SSL”).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we do not guarantee absolute security. We are not responsible for the unauthorized acts of others and we assume no liability for any disclosure of information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access (such as through hacking) or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our site to provide services on our behalf, to perform Website-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Website is used. These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Links To Other Sites
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
Opting-Out From Receiving Communications
You may opt-out from having your personal information used for certain purposes. For example, if you purchase a product or service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you may opt-out by following the instructions included in each email communication. If you subscribe to electronic newsletters or other communications from us or our website, you will always have an option to unsubscribe immediately.
