Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. We cannot guarantee that other sites have privacy practices in line with our own.


These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Whom we share your data with

This website is GDRP noncompliant due to the site owner’s distaste for the GDPR cookie banner. Efforts have been made to choose plugins that provide necessary utilities while retaining respect for user privacy.

Your data is never sold or shared for marketing purposes. Some data may be used or revealed in the following transactions:

  • If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
  • If you use the contact form, your form content and IP address will be emailed to the site owner.
  • If you make a purchase in an online store, your information will be shared with third-party plugins as needed to complete the financial transaction.
  • If you engage in an online learning module, your inputted professional information will be stored for regulatory purposes, and data from the learning module will be used to record transactions, module completion, and certificate creation and delivery.
  • If you complete an hCaptcha security check, the data generated from your labor is entered into an anonymous market, and all funds generated are donated to the Wikimedia Foundation.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or submit a contact form, the comment and its metadata may be retained indefinitely.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you, so long as it is allowed by regulations and laws governing HIPAA compliance and other professional recordkeeping.


Where your data is sent

  • Form submission hCaptcha. You can learn more at What is hCaptcha?
  • A contact form for emailing the site owner
  • A subscription form for a newsletter
  • Course modules that require professional licensure information to track continuing education units.
