PRIVACY POLICY

Please review this privacy policy carefully before using the site.

This site (“Site” or “case Sites”) is owned and operated by The Advisory Center for Health Professionals, Inc., a non-profit corporation organized and existing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (“ACHP”).

Confidentiality.

To demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing our privacy practices. Here, you will learn what personal identifying information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information. ACHP is committed to fair information practices. ACHP also respects the privacy and security of its users. ACHP will not share information it collects which personally identifies you or the personal information you provide upon subscription, registration or log-in with third parties except as follows.

  • At your specific request.
  • You speak with a senior advisor and he/she feels you are in need of counseling services or crisis intervention. In this case, the advisor will contact your program director.

In connection with its educational mission, ACHP does share information of the usage of its users but does not include personally identifiable information. An example would be the frequency of a request for a consultation for advice about dealing with a difficult patient.
