Privacy Policy

Satori Recovery Center Privacy Policy

We at Satori Recovery Center respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the privacy of the information you provide to us while using this website and its services.

This Privacy Policy describes the type of personal information (the phrases ?personal information? or “personally identifiable information” mean any information by which you can be directly identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.) we may collect on our website (the ?Site?), how we may use that information and with whom we may share it. The Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of this information. Your use of this Site is also governed by our Terms of Use.

Technologies That Allow Us to Customize Your Experience

We use various technologies to collect information about your visit to our Site and to enhance and customize your experience on our Site.

Information Collected by Web Servers

Our Web servers and Web servers of third-party vendors (discussed below) automatically collect certain non-personally identified information, such as the pages a user visits, and the domain name of a user?s Internet service provider. We use this information to measure traffic and usage patterns. The servers also may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes, as well as for aggregate site usage statistics. Also, in some instances, we may use IP address logs to anonymously track session and website usage and behaviors. We do not share this information with other organizations nor do we link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. However, outside vendors (as discussed below) also may collect this information and use it for their own purposes.

Use of Cookies

Like many other websites, this Website uses “cookies.” Except in the case of analytics cookies discussed below, we do not employ third-party cookies from any outside organization, although our outside vendors (as discussed below) also may place cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us of who you are, tailor our communications to suit your personal interests, estimate our audience size and/or analyze your visiting patterns. Cookies can be used to collect anonymous data and serve the user with specifically targeted ads, and may be used to communicate with Twitter, Facebook, Google + or other third party sites in connection with the ?share? or ?like? buttons for these third party sites. We do not use cookies to read any data or files in your computer. You can generally set your browser to not accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

Users who do not accept cookies from our Site can access Site content but may not be able to use certain website features, such as credit card transactions and the ?remember me? function for future emails from Center on Addiction.

We use Google Analytics Advertising Features, a web analysis service from Google Inc., on this Site. Google Analytics uses cookies to evaluate the use of the Site by its visitors, to compile reports about the activities of the visitors on the Site, and to provide other services related to usage of the Site and the internet. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Google guarantees that your IP address will not be linked to other Google data in any way.

You may opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features. Please see the following link for details:!/

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their browsers to let third parties know that they do not want to be tracked online. You can disable or enable this setting by changing the DNT settings in your browser. We do not track users over time and across third party websites, and therefore do not respond to DNT signals, and except in the case of analytics cookies as described above, our Site limits tracking to the internal uses described above. Center on Addiction does not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information about users for third party use through advertising technologies without user consent. However, some third party sites, including potentially those that have content embedded on this Site or to which this Site links, may keep track of your browsing activities and may set cookies on your browser. Please review their privacy policies to understand how you may be tracked. As noted, since our Site does not respond to DNT signals you may have set in your browser, we cannot fully control what third parties may do.

Information Collected and How We Us It

The Site allows users to choose to provide us with personal information. If you post comments or engage in discussions on certain interactive sections of the Site, sign up for email updates or make a donation, you may be asked to provide personal information (such as your name, email address, mailing address, etc.). We do not seek to collect, process or store any sensitive personal information from you while using the Site, including personal information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership and the processing of information concerning health or sex life. We will only collect such personal information where required by applicable law or as necessary for a purpose which you expressly request and consent to. However, you can still visit the Site anonymously. If you prefer that we not collect any personal information from you, please do not provide us with such information. Also, if you prefer that we not contact you in the future through use of this contact information, please do not provide us with such information. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, please note that we include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

Future Contact from Satori Recovery Center

The information that you provide to us may be used to complete and support the immediate activity requested, administer and run the Site, improve the Site, contact you if necessary or requested and comply with any requirements of law. The information may also be used to contact you in the future about Center news as well as various events, reports, publications, functions, activities and opportunities.

Unless you give permission, your email address and other personal information will not be shared with any organization outside of Center on Addiction other than certain third-party vendors (as discussed below). You may inform us at any time if you would like to cancel a subscription and/or have your contact information deleted from our records.

Self-Assessment Reponses

The Site offers users the opportunity to take self-assessment tests. All responses provided to self-assessment tests are completely anonymous and we do not collect any personally identifiable information in connection with the self-assessment quiz. For the purposes of scientific research and usage analysis, responses will be associated with an anonymous numerical identifier that will not be linked to browser cookies or your IP address (see above for information on cookies and IP addresses). If we publicly release user response data, it will only be in aggregate (group) form.

Information We Share and with Whom We Share It

We will not provide your personal information to third parties for their use in marketing their products or services to you ? or for any other reason ? without your express consent.

Third-Party/Outside Vendors

We may retain or utilize other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf consistent with this Privacy Policy. Examples include consultants and web hosting and payment processing companies. Such third-party vendors may be provided with access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they may not use such information other than on our behalf and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Business Transfers

In the event that the activities of Satori Recovery Center are merged, sold or otherwise transferred, user information, including personal information, generally is and may be one of the business assets transferred in those transactions. By submitting your information on the Site, you agree that your data may be transferred to outside parties in these circumstances.

Compliance with Law and Fraud Protection

We may disclose any information we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process (including, but not limited to, in response to a subpoena) or governmental request. In addition, we may disclose any information when we believe, in our sole discretion, disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with suspected or actual illegal activity.


We may share your personal information, if needed, to protect the security or confidentiality of our records.

Nonpersonal Information

Third-party vendors we use in providing our Site may have access to and use anonymous information related to your visit to our Site, such as your IP address. These companies most often use non-personally identifiable information generated during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information. In addition to setting cookies on your browser, they may also read cookies that are already there. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit

Access to Our Site via Third-Party Accounts or Links

If you access our Site through a third-party connection or log-in, such as through your Facebook account, what information the third-party may collect about your visit and how they may use it would be governed by the third-party?s privacy policies and terms of use and not by this policy nor our Terms of Use.

Children’s Privacy

If you are under 13 years of age, you may browse our Site. However, you may not provide personal information to us. This Site is not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 on the Site. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a visitor under the age of 13 on the Site, we will delete the information from our records.

Third-Party Website Links and Social Media Sites

Occasionally on our Site we offer links to third-party websites and social media sites. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, and these third parties may be located in a jurisdiction with lesser data protection laws. We, therefore, have no control over the content and activities of these linked sites. (See our Terms of Use for more information.) Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

You can access information published to these sites without having an account with or subscribing to these third-party services. If you access one of these sites without an account, none of your personal information will be seen by Center on Addiction. If you do subscribe to one of these services and your account name, online profile or comments you make reveal personal information, we will not use, maintain or share that information outside Center on Addiction. Since our social media content is available to the general public, if you make a comment on a social media site, any information in your comment, as well as your profile name and any other public profile information, will be available to the general public to see.

How We Protect Personal Information

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place a donation or submit your personal information.

All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database, and we do not have access to or retain your credit card information, i.e., your credit card number, expiration date or card security code on our servers. This database is only accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems who are required to keep the information confidential.

Online Privacy Policy

This online Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through our website and not to information collected offline.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor?s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
