Privacy Policy

Privacy policies, by their nature, are often difficult to read and understand. Our full Official Privacy Policy is below, but in the interest of having you understand how we respect your privacy, we offer this summary in layman’s terms.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Our goal is to provide you with information to make an educated decision in choosing a rehabilitation facility and to guide you in how to proceed if you are unhappy with services you have received. If you contact us for assistance, we may request some information from you. This type of information will be held in strict confidence and only used to provide the assistance you have requested.

Web server logs of site visitors are kept by our web server, and we use private analytic software hosted onsite for tracking trends of interest. Neither the logs nor the software contain personally identifiable information, and are only used to determine what information is of the most interest to our visitors, so we can concentrate our efforts to best serve you.

Many of our documents come from public sources, and any names included on them are public information. Our privacy policy does not extend to the names on these public documents, but we will protect the names of sources who provide non-public documents or information to us.

Official Privacy Policy

We have two classes of visitors that our privacy policy is geared toward, regular visitors and registered members. Regular visitors are those who visit the site purely for information. Registered members are those who register to make comments on our blog, those who are authors on the blog, and those who are actively involved in helping to add content to the site directly.

For All Visitors:
We use technologies like first party cookies (small files stored by your browser) to anonymously identify your computer or device so we can deliver a better experience. Read how WordPress uses cookies to learn more about this. Our server also logs information like your browser, operating system and IP address.

Our analytic software may keep anonymous data (such as your IP address) to help us understand how our website is used. We use this data solely to improve the site. We do not share it.

Our systems are not designed to associate personal information with your activities (such as pages you view or things you click on or search for).

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information.

We do not use or collect your precise geographic location.

We generally do not share personally identifiable information (such as name, address, email or phone) with other organizations, companies, or people. See the Limited Circumstances below for exceptions to this.

For registered members only:
If you register an account with us for the purpose of commenting on our blog or acting as an author, we also may collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, phone number, or email address. You can sign into your account to see or delete any personally identifiable information we have stored, such as your name, address, email or phone number.

We remove personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, email or phone number) and other preferences associated with your account promptly if your account is deleted. We may retain other data such as server logs indefinitely.

We take all reasonable steps to secure your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access or disclosure.

Limited Circumstances
In limited circumstances, we also may make identifiable and anonymous information available to third parties. These circumstances include:

  • With your express consent to provide additional information or help to you
  • If we are served with a Court Order or have a good faith belief it is required by law
  • When we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our website, rights, property, or selves.

Your consent will not be required for disclosure in the last two cases, but we will attempt to notify you to the extent feasible, and that we are capable of and permitted by law to do so.

Updates to this Privacy Policy
This privacy policy was last updated on June 11, 2013. Our privacy policy may change from time to time. If we make any material changes to our policies, we will place a prominent notice on our blog, and the change will be noted at the top of this page. If the change materially affects registered users who have provided valid contact information, we will send a notice to you.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policies, please contact us.
