Privacy Settings

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.

When you visit any of our family of websites (Healthline, Medical News Today, Greatist, and Everyday Family), 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. We also work with the vendors listed below to help deliver our content and services to you.

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. As the modern digital advertising ecosystem functions on cookies and other data, we request you allow cookies in order to access all of our content and site features.

If you choose to disallow any of the purposes listed in “How we use your data” below, then we cannot provide you the full site experience. We will provide you with a version of our site without ads, cookies, or tracking technologies. However, this version will show only 10 selected articles.

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.
