Privacy & Copyright Policy:
Terms of Service and Legal Disclosures
Copyright Permissions and Requests: Because our videos, images, and articles often contain content that we have licensed from other third parties, we are unable to extend permissions or licensing to others at this time. Doing so would violate the agreements we have in place with other copyright holders.
Copyright Notice and Terms:
All images, videos, books, articles, domain names, design theme, logos, and other materials on this site are copyright protected. You may not reuse, redistribute, republish, sell, store in a database, reverse engineer, or otherwise use our content without our express written consent. However, there are a few exceptions:
You may use built-in “share” tools on social networking sites to publicly share links to our articles, which is a common practice on sites like Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Facebook, and so forth.
You may create hyperlinks on other websites, which will point back to our original website. Many websites or universities link to our site as a recommended resource, and we certainly appreciate it.
You may share our videos using YouTube’s official video page or share tools. Many university professors share our videos with students or show them during class. YouTube also allows individuals to embed videos into websites, blogs, and other online properties, or to email videos or share them on social media. We allow this so long as the official YouTube video is used from our channel (TheMackInstitute); it does not violate YouTube’s terms of service; you may not post the text transcript of the video; and advertisements or content is not obscured or manipulated. Also, YouTube’s terms prevent the selling of content or access to their content, so you may not list our videos on a website and offer them for sale directly or charge a membership fee indirectly for access to our videos.
You may not use our image or the image of Philisha Mack or The Mack Institute Health Care Services or any of its umbrella brands in any advertisements or promotional materials without our express written consent. You may not imply that Philisha Mack (or our website) has in any way endorsed your product or service.
You may NOT download our content (outside of YouTube’s share tools) and re-upload it to other video sites, YouTube channels, blogs, or online properties. You may not copy our content to republish in books, flash cards, produce your own videos, DVDs, and other resource material. You may not transcribe content from our videos and post as articles online or in books. Doing so violates copyright law.
You agree never to attempt to gather private or personal information from this website, domain, server, or anything else. Harvesting emails, hacking, gathering information, or anything else is strictly prohibited, illegal, and will be pursued legally. Please have respect for users of this site.
You may not share, rent, sell or trade any information on this site.
Copyright and Trademark of Other Companies:
This website is in no way affiliated with any companies, organizations, copyrights, trademarks, or property that we may mention, including but not limited to: Nursing educational institutions, NCLEX, copyrighted books, Myspace, Google, Youtube , FaceBook, Yahoo, or any other trademarked, copyrighted, or patented names, companies, or material.
We may make reference to these companies, but each company trademark or copyright belongs to its own respective owner, and we are in no way affiliated with any of these companies other than the fact that we occasionally use or promote their products or services.
We may sometimes use references, quotes, screenshots, or short clips of information in articles, tutorials, images, or other content within our videos or articles. All content used on our site is used in good faith under the fair use doctrine, by purchasing the appropriate license, by seeking permission from the copyright holder, or by seeking information that is factual (non-copyrighted) or in the public domain.

Advertising and Affiliate Compensation:
We receive compensation on this website. We often have advertisements displayed on this site. At this time, we only use 3rd party companies such as Google Adsense and others to display advertisements, as well as some affiliate programs. If you are a company or organization interested in advertising, please do so through these companies. Any advertisements should agree with the policies of the company used, and should not break any of the terms and conditions set forth by the company or laws set forth.
We may, at our discretion, engage in other forms of compensation in the future, including product endorsements or other materials. However, at this time we mostly only use PPC advertising, referral programs, book sales, and affiliate programs.
We try to filter the advertisements that show on the site as much as possible to ensure they reflect the ideas and opinions promoted on the site. However, some ad programs target keywords and search terms and then display ads that go against our personal beliefs. Please understand that we do not endorse or share the same beliefs of any ads that may display on this site.
We may sometimes offer reviews of products, recommend products or services, and/or link to products. Sometimes, we may have an affiliate relationship with the product or service being referenced, and earn a commission or advertising fee from this. We do this so that we can continue to provide free information and value to our readers, while being able to cover our expenses such as web hosting, advertising, and so forth.
Some examples of compensation we receive are: Google advertisement income, Affiliate commissions from our Amazon Nursing store & Amazon product referrals, Referrals for our college affiliate programs, and other products.
Although we receive compensation from some of our product referrals, endorsements, or advertisements, we strive to offer truthful reviews and opinions about those products. We only offer products we feel are of value or interest to our readers. We regularly turn down any requests which we feel are of low quality or of no interest to our readers.

Errors or omissions may occur. You should only consult a doctor or appropriate professional for any problems, treatments, information, or diagnosis. You agree to follow the latest nursing guidelines as set forth in your area by the Board of Nursing or similar authority.
Some videos and articles contain nursing skills or teaching tutorials. While we strive for 100% accuracy, we may omit information, make errors, and so forth.

Therefore, you agree not to hold us liable for any problems, damages, or losses that may arise from the use of our educational material. It is the viewer’s responsibility to ensure that all lectures or skills are followed in accordance with state and federal laws. We only provide such material as examples of what students may encounter in a clinical setting.

You should NEVER take a medication, follow a treatment course, or other similar things without consulting a licensed medical doctor first. No video or article is intended to be used as medical advice or treatment, but rather, as information to assist students in reviews.
While we receive many testimonials and comments from students who have successfully passed nursing courses or the NCLEX exam, we do not guarantee that our materials will do so. Some testing centers (or teachers) may focus on different aspects of diseases or nursing practice. It is the student’s responsibility to study their own material and to verify for accuracy anything they read, hear, or view on our site.
You should never practice nursing skills without the proper licensing or credentials. Doing so may be dangerous for you and the patient.

We try to make sure everything is accurate; however, mistakes do occur, policies change, laws change, procedures change, and it is always the user’s responsibility to check to make sure any information is accurate, not outdated, appropriate, legal, and correct. Laws vary from country to country, state to state, and even city to city. We cannot possibly keep up with these laws, and it is always your responsibility to check with your local professionals to ensure information is accurate and acceptable.
