We’ve updated our terms and conditions and want to ensure you’re completely up to speed on what we do with your information. To make things simple, we’ve broken it down into a few bullet points.
- Scrubs Magazine values and respects that you share confidential information with us. We will never sell your data to a third party. Ever.
- To keep Scrubs Magazine free, we do run ads and promotions. We keep our ads and promotions targeted which means you’ll see less of what you don’t want, and more of what you do. That’s why we collect certain pieces of data, like your zip code.
- When we do run a promotion, you’ll be giving the advertiser permission to use your email address to pick a winner(s) and for marketing purposes. They must abide by rules when working with us, that they will not sell that data either. You can opt out at any time.
Scrubs Magazine is owned by Strategic Partners Inc. a distributor and manufacturer of medical apparel. When you subscribe to Scrubs Magazine, you give us permission to send marketing material and promotions from our house brands also. You can see the full list at www.StrategicPartners.net.
