Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or reject all cookies.

We may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to recognize you or to collect or receive information from your use of the Services and elsewhere on the internet.

These advertising companies may use the information gathered to deliver ads more tailored to your interests. We receive aggregate information from these third parties to understand our advertising effectiveness.

We use Google Analytics on this website to help us analyze the traffic on our website. We do not use Google Analytics to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated by Google Analytics is transmitted to and stored by Google and subject to Google's privacy policy. For more information on Google Analytics' processing of personal information, please see

Information We May Receive from Third Parties. We also may collect information regarding how you interact with the Services and other websites, such as content on social media platforms. For example, if you “like” a photo on one of our social media sites, we may collect information related to that interaction. In some cases, we may receive information about you from third parties that you directly provided to a third party.

Use & Sharing of Information

We may use your information to contact you (for example, sending you a newsletter or other informational materials, offers, announcements, or surveys); to communicate with you about the Services, including to follow up on requests or questions that you may submit; to track and analyze use of the Services, including to prevent, detect, and investigate misuse, fraud, and illegal activities, and to track and evaluate activity on the Services; for purposes including enhancing and maintaining the Services, products, and services; for recruiting and human resources administration purposes; and to otherwise run our business.

Additionally, we may share your information, including information collected through the Services, under the following circumstances: with our authorized vendors and third-party service providers who perform certain services or functions on our behalf (for example, we may share your information with a hosting service provider who hosts the website); in connection with the sale, assignment, merger, or other transfer of all or a portion of our business; in accordance with your consent or direction, as permitted by law; to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, law enforcement requests, legal claims, or government inquiries; and to protect and defend our rights, interests, health, safety, and security, and those of our affiliates, patients, users, or the public.

We may also use aggregated or de-identified information to better understand the Services being provided and how to improve the Services. This non-identifiable information may be shared with third parties. For example, we use Google Analytics to process and analyze data we collect from your use of the Services.

Security & Retention

We maintain industry-accepted physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the Personal Information collected when you use the Services.

California Residents

This section is for California residents and supplements our Privacy Policy. It explains how we collect, use, and share your Personal Information and how to exercise your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). (“Consumers”).

As used in this section, “Personal Information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to you. Personal Information does not include publicly available information; information that is aggregated or de-identified; information excluded from the CCPA's scope, like health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA), or personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA).

Under the CCPA, you have the following rights:

Right to Know. You have the right to request information about the categories and sources of Personal Information we collect, our purposes for collecting the information, and the types of third parties that receive that information.

Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete your Personal Information that we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.

We may deny your request if retaining the information is necessary for us or any applicable third party to: (i) to complete the business purpose for which we collected the Personal Information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you; (ii) to make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it; (iii) to comply with a legal obligation; or (iv) to detect security incidents, or fraudulent or illegal activity.

Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information, and to request information about whether we have sold your Personal Information in the past 12 months.

Right to Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of these rights. However, in some circumstances, for example where you have requested or consented to our services that use your Personal Information to provide the service, we may not be able to provide a service if you choose to delete your Personal Information.

To exercise any of these rights, or to designate an agent or authorized representative to act on your behalf, you can contact us through our designated CCPA processes by going to the Acadia Compliance Alert Form to submit an electronic form. Please note that to protect your information and the integrity of our Products, we may need to verify your identity before processing your request. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
