Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of Nursing.org (Effective Date 2/18/2016)

We are pleased that you have elected to visit Nursing.org to utilize our services and content. Nursing.org is committed to safeguarding the information entrusted to us by our users and visitors.

This page will discuss our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and provide you with information on:

  • The type of information that we collect.
  • How this information is used and shared.
  • How you can remove this information.

We may revise this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy from time to time if we change any of our practices. We recommend that you revisit this document periodically to stay up to date with what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone.

What type of information do we collect and how is it used?

Nursing.org collects two kinds of information: Submitted Information and Automatic Information.

At times, Nursing.org may collect submitted information that helps us provide information requested by our users and to match users to specific education-related products or services. For example, you may send us an email, and provide us with your name, telephone number, and/or email address. Any information collected about you from this website may be associated with other information that Nursing.org has collected about you.

How Nursing.org would use your submitted information may include, but are not limited to: 1) providing notice of any issues that may be connected with our services or products; 2) analyzing the success of our products and website; and 3) customizing the content of our website.

By submitting this information, you authorize Nursing.org, as well as our affiliated schools and partners, the ability to contact you, in accordance with all applicable laws, by phone, text messages, email, or mail regarding education programs.

Nursing.org also collects automatic information. This includes certain types of anonymous information that is collected whenever you interact with us. This information is used by Nursing.org to help us improve and create a more tailored user experience for all of our users. We use “cookies” on the website to collect this anonymous data. Examples of this automatic information include, but are not limited to, your browser version, operating system, the domain and host from which you access the website, and your Internet protocol (IP) address.

How do we share your information?

By visiting and using Nursing.org, you acknowledge and agree that any automatic information collected on our website may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties for the purpose of providing information about degrees, programs, and other education-related products and services. You also acknowledge and agree that we retain the right to release any collected information, including personally identifiable information, to businesses providing our company with administrative services, such as email, data processing, and customer service. Through this action, you grant us, our affiliates, and partners the right to contact you for a period of time, and relinquish any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal laws and may exempt us from other applicable laws.

We also retain the right to release your personal information to non-affiliated third parties when required to do so by applicable laws and regulations. For example, we may disclose personal information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use, or selling some or all of its assets to a third party.

Some of this automatic information is collected through the use of cookies, which are small pieces of data sent from the website and stored in the user’s web browser. By visiting our Website, you acknowledge that we use cookies and consent to our use of cookies. Advertising cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, but they do permit advertisers to make ads more relevant to the user’s interests.

We, including activities through services and partnerships with vendors and third-party service providers, may use cookies for web analytics; lead auditing to ensure the accuracy, relevance, and validity of Submitted Information; and marketing and conversion-tracking cookies for targeting and optimizing digital ad serving. To perform our web analytics, Nursing.org mainly uses Google Analytics, a tool provided by Google, Inc. More information about Google Analytics can be found at Google’s privacy policy: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

You can remove cookies at any time through your browser settings, though you may need to do this every time you visit Nursing.org. You can also generally opt out of receiving personalized ads from third-party advertisers and ad networks that are a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or that follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising. You can do this by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA websites.

If you receive any email communication from a school, a third-party partner, or Nursing.org, you may unsubscribe by clicking an opt-out link in the email message. This will remove you from any future mailings from that sender.
