Privacy Policy


Thank you for visiting Medical School Companion’s official website. We take your privacy seriously and have therefore written this Privacy Policy to better explain how we collect and use your information. This Privacy Policy is a binding contract and you must agree to it in order to access our website and use our e-learning products. If this Privacy Policy is translated into another language, the original English version will prevail. In addition, any change we make will be binding on you so it’s important to come back often to check for updates.

Personal Information We Collect

In order for you to register with us, you must, at the minimum, provide us with an e-mail address, user name, and password. Additional details, such as your name, address, telephone number, and payment information, may be required by us and/or third parties in order to actually purchase our e-learning products. These third parties may have their own terms of service and privacy policies that you must agree to, including the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy. We will not disclose any information that you provide to us except in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

In addition to the above, we may collect information about how you interact with any particular course or any information or content that you provide to our moderators, forum users, or any suggestions you have.

Non-Personal Information We Collect

We may collect information about you that is not personal information. When you access our website, we may collect such things as your IP address, browser, operating system, and other general information about our visitors. This information, on its own, cannot be used to identify you.

Account Information

You must not provide your login details to any third party. Not only is this a breach of your account’s security, but it would also violate our Terms of Service. If you become aware of any unauthorized access to your account, or you are no longer able to access your account, you must notify us immediately with full details so that we can take the necessary action to secure your account.

Use of Information

We may use your information:

  • To process transactions.
  • To send e-mails about Medical School Companion or respond to inquiries.
  • To send e-mails about Medical School Companion, and other products, news, or updates.
  • To send e-mails about other third parties’ products or services.


We use cookies to allow you to log in to our service, authenticate and verify certain information, and to record session information. While you do not necessarily have to have permanent cookies enabled, it does help us with distinguishing you from other users and protects your security and privacy. We also reserve the right to use cookies, web beacons, or web bugs to track the success of our marketing efforts. These cookies may tell us what sites you have visited, but we only use this information in conjunction with our Service and related marketing efforts. Without cookies, we cannot distinguish you from other users, and your privacy and account security will be severely reduced.

In addition, we may market the services of others or tell you about some interesting new products. In such cases, we may be acting as an affiliate and may use a cookie or pixel to track a particular action. These cookies are designed to help us receive recognition for our efforts, and are not intended to track usage or monitor your browsing habits.

In all other cases, we limit our use of cookies to keeping you logged in and remembering your preferences, and remembering your shopping cart items. We do not have third party cookies on our website or permit third parties to access your cookies.

Third Party Websites

We may link to third party websites from our own website, including links from our e-learning programs to relevant websites. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, these third party websites or their use of your personal information. We recommend that you review their privacy policies and other agreements governing your use of their website.

Third Party Access to Your Information

We protect your information from being accessed by third parties. However, since we may employ outside maintenance personnel or use a third party to host our material, there are third party entities which may have custody or access to your information. Because of this, it is necessary that you permit us to give access to your information to third parties to the same extent that you authorize us to do so. For greater certainty, every authorization which you grant to us in this Privacy Policy, you also grant to any third party that we may hire, contract, or otherwise retain the services of for the purpose of operating, maintaining, repairing, or otherwise improving or preserving our website or its underlying files or systems. You agree not to hold us liable for the actions of any of these third parties, even if we would normally be held vicariously liable for their actions, and that you must take legal action against them directly should they commit any tort or other actionable wrongs against you.

Law Enforcement

We may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either.

Security of Information

We use SSL certificates to help secure our website. However, no precautions are completely preventative of security threats, so you must take action to independently protect yourself. This includes using anti-virus and firewall software on your computer, router, and other devices.


We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time, and the amended version will be posted on our website in place of the old version. We will also include the date that the currently displayed Privacy Policy took effect to help you determine whether there have been any changes since you last used our website. We recommend that you periodically refer back to this Privacy Policy to make yourself aware of the newest amendments.


Any inquiries about your rights under this Privacy Policy, or any other matters regarding your privacy, can be directed to the following Jack Tisdall.
