E-mail or other forms of electronic communication, including website submission, are not secure and/or confidential means of communication. While Empowerment Training Center attempts to prevent unauthorized access to your User Information, or other information you submit, such access may occur.
We do not require you to provide any personal medical information about yourself to us online, and we ask that you do not share personal medical information that you wish to keep confidential. Information you provide is not protected under confidentiality laws that protect physician-patient communications. Please carefully select what you choose to disclose. Personal medical information that Empowerment Training Center receives in any manner is subject to separate privacy practices. Our statement regarding the treatment of such information can be read on the following page: HIPAA POLICY.
Personal Information about Children
The Website is targeted primarily for use by adults. We do not currently market to or create special areas for use by children. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect age identifying information, except on job applications, nor do we knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 years. However, we hereby advise all visitors to our site under the age of 13 not to disclose or provide any personally identifiable information on our website. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to us, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protect Act (see the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.ftc.gov/kidzprivacy for more information about this Act), we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our files to the extent technologically possible.

If you send an e-mail or letter request, please be sure to include your full name, address, phone number and e-mail address. This will ensure we identify you correctly in our systems and accurately process your request. Please note that opting out of e-mail communications may not opt you out of receiving other hard copy information.
Empowerment Training Center will take appropriate steps to implement your request to opt-out of receiving marketing communications. Please note that due to production, mailing and system timelines, in order to remove you from our marketing lists, it may take up to 10 business days for e-mails. Until that change takes effect, you may still receive marketing communications from us.
Also, please note that even though you may have opted out of receiving marketing communications, you may still receive business-related communications. Please be aware that opting-out of certain third party use may prevent us from providing certain services or products that you request.
