This page explains why we collect data on our site, who has access to it, and why we’re asking you to allow us to do so.

We believe that health information should be free to everyone and we rely on advertising to make this possible. Providing the best health information in the world is expensive. We spend up to thousands of dollars per article to ensure it is accurate and precise with quality review by a doctor or other certified, trained medical professional.

When you visit any of our family of websites (Healthetia.comMedical News TodayGreatist, and PsychCentral), we use cookies and similar tracking technologies to improve your browsing experience, store or access relevant information, customize content and offers, personalize advertising, analyze our traffic, and better understand you. If you do not allow “Ad Selection, Delivery, and Reporting” below, then you still will see advertising, but the ads may be less relevant and interesting to you.

You can change your mind about your privacy choices at any time and revisit your privacy settings by returning to this page. To do so, click on “Privacy Settings” in the footer or change the cookie settings in your browser. Learn more about our Privacy Policy and Advertising Policy.
