Privacy Policy


KAPLAN MD, INC. (“we” or “KAPLANMD”) is the company behind the KAPLAN MD brand. We understand that privacy is important. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information on this website.

Collecting Information

Like many websites, we will record information that your web browser sends whenever you visit a website. This information may include your browser type, browser language, Internet Protocol address, and the date and time of your visit. As is commonly done on retail websites, we will use “cookies” or similar technology that enables us to keep track of which pages our visitors view, which features they use, and that allow our visitors to personalize their use of our website. Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer and help us identify your browser when you visit our site. For example, you might wish to place certain items in your Shopping Cart and leave them there until your next visit, and cookie files will help us keep track of what was in your cart when you return. If you come to our site by clicking on an internet advertisement, we may use cookies or other tags to track how many people have clicked through to our site. Most browsers are set up to allow the use of cookies. If you do not wish to accept cookies, the “help” selection on your browser’s toolbar will likely tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies, how to have the browser alert you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you disable cookies, however, you will not be able to take advantage of all of the features on this site.

You do not need to provide any personal information if you simply want to browse our website and learn about our products and services. When we ask for your personal information, it is so that we can provide a product or service to you and to communicate with you about our products and services. For example, we will ask for your personal information if you choose to order products from us or if you would like to sign up for our newsletter. We may also collect information about you in connection with certain customizable tools and features, surveys, or contests that we may operate from time to time on our website. We may also offer features that will allow you to sign up friends or family to receive information from our site, such as newsletters or wish lists. It will always be your choice whether you want to provide individually identifiable information to take advantage of these features.

Using Information

When we collect information during your visits (either on an anonymous or individually identifiable basis), it is generally so that we can (1) provide goods and services; (2) monitor and analyze visitor activity on our website and improve the features and operation of our website; (3) develop a knowledge base regarding our website visitors and their preferences; (4) identify and provide you with information about products in which you may be interested; and (5) develop new products and services. Based on your activity on our site, we may offer you information about those products of ours in which we think you are interested. We may correlate non-identifiable information with identifiable information, and if we do, we will protect that information like any other identifiable information that we collect through this website. Except as otherwise noted in this policy, we do not share your personal information with businesses who are not part of KAPLANMD.

If you provide us with your personal information, we may use it for marketing our products and services. For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, we will add your name to our mailing list and send you our newsletter that will provide you with information about our products. We may allow you to sign up friends or family members to receive our newsletter and will add them to our mailing list as well. We will not sell your information, or that of your friends or family members, to third parties for their marketing purposes.

In order to provide our services, we may share information with our business partners. For example, if you purchase goods through this website, like any other retailer we will have to provide your credit card information to our credit card processor and authenticator for payment purposes, and your name and address to the company that ships our merchandise.

We may use contractors to help us collect information to run our web site, to help us analyze and evaluate our information, and to provide hosting and other support services for the website. When our contractors have access to the individually identifiable information that we collect, we require them to process and use the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We may elect to disclose individually identifiable information without prior notice in response to law enforcement activity or other governmental request; to respond to subpoenas, court orders or administrative agency requests for information; to enforce our contract or property rights; to protect ourselves or others; or when required or otherwise permitted by law. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use our site for illegal reasons. Information we collect may also be transferred in connection with any sale or merger of the company or any division or business line of the company to which the information relates.

Information Security

KAPLANMD uses commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of the website and the confidentiality of collected data. Thus, if you place an order with us, we will use Secure Sockets Layer encryption to protect the security of the transmission and will store your credit card information using encryption and unique encryption keys for each transaction. We limit access to information that we collect about our visitors to employees who have a need to use the information. Employees who violate these policies may be subject to discipline.

Links to Other Websites

This site may contain links to websites of retailers or other third parties who are not affiliated with KAPLANMD. We are not responsible for the operation of or collection of any information from any websites operated by unaffiliated third parties. If you choose to visit one of these other sites, we encourage you to review the site’s privacy policy to learn about its privacy practices.

Updates to This Policy

Our business and the laws that regulate us change from time to time, and we reserve the right to change this policy. If we do change this policy, we will post the revised version on this site. Your use of the site will constitute your acceptance of the privacy policy in effect at that time. If we propose to change our policy in a way that would permit us to make additional uses of information that we had previously collected about you, we will provide you with a meaningful way to opt out of those additional uses.
