Terms of Use

Anything you read on this blog, or anything acted up because of this blog, is subject to the terms of use. You are reading this website of your own free will.  Anything you do (click, purchase, take advice or recommendations) is your own personal choice and at your own risk.  If you try a product recommended, follow a piece of advice, or try a service, and are not satisfied, the FreshRN® will not be able to assist you.  Kati Kleber and the FreshRN team are not held responsible for these or similar scenarios.

How Income is Generated

Kati earns income on this website in the following ways: affiliate marketing, course and book sales, advertisements, and sponsored blog posts. Why does this matter? Transparency is important to Kati and she wants you to know when people have paid to be featured on the website, and that she does not take those partnerships lightly. Kati only agrees to work with companies and individuals she believes in.

Kati has also ceased the practice of being an ambassador or sponsored by one particular company, as she feels that limits her ability to be honest and transparent. If you do see a sponsored post, that is a stand-alone occurrence and does not include long-term contracts or commitments that would prohibit her from speaking candidly about the company itself or its competitors.  

Affiliate Links

As you read through content on FreshRN.com, you may run across something called “affiliate links”.

So, what are affiliate links and why should I care?  

Affiliate links are links where if you decide to purchase that particular product or service, Kati Kleber will get a percentage of that sale.  Think of it kind of like a finder’s fee for linking the consumer to something they’re interested in.  This does not change the final price of any items.  The only items promoted, and therefore may contain affiliate links, on this site have either been personally used by Kati Kleber or someone she knows and trusts.  It is a part of the FreshRN® promise that we will never promote anything that we do not wholeheartedly stand behind.  For example, Kati is an affiliate of FIGS Scrubs because it is her favorite brand of scrubs and what she physically uses at the bedside. Should you click on a link to FIGS on FreshRN® and make a purchase, Kati receives 10% of that sale. 

Additionally, nurse educators support one another by offering affiliate commissions on their content. This enables us to share our education with one another’s audience without having to pay additional for marketing, as commissions are provided only when a sale is made. The ability to provide affiliate revenue to one another significantly enhances our reach as freelancers and educators. This is why Kati is an affiliate with NRSNG, Skills on Point, Straight A Nursing Student, and the IV Guy. We are all nurses and educators supporting one another, not major corporations.

Kati Kleber and FreshRN.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. It is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Kati will always indicate if there is an affiliate relationship at the beginning of any post that an affiliate link.  She will indicate this before the first link is present, per FCC Guidelines. If it is a social share or email, it will include either the word “affiliate” or “partner,” or one of the following: hashtags #affiliate #sponsored #partner within the email or share. 

Sponsored Posts Disclaimer

Occasionally, Kati Kleber will work with a company who provides compensation to her in exchange for writing a blog post on this website.  Any review post is Kati’s own personal opinion and compensation does not impact the content. Kati would never agree to this, nor would she promote or work with a company who engages in these practices.  To identify these posts, there is an additional disclaimer at the top of the post, which will state which company or entity specifically sponored that post.

Guest Blog Posts

Guests occasionally write for the FreshRN® Blog. Any content written by guests reflects their personal experiences and opinions and not that of any current or past employers.  Compensation may be exchanged for a guest blog posts.  If so, a disclaimer will be listed at the top of the post to indicate such.

Nurse Gear

Under the Gear tab, you’ll find two shops in which you can purchase clothing, notebooks, coffee mugs and so forth.  Should you choose to purchase something from either of these online stores (Spreadshirt and/or Zazzle), Kati Kleber will get a very small percentage of the sale.  The decision was made to utilize these two companies because they facilitate order placement and fulfillment, which in turn makes the items substantially cheaper than if this was completed by the FreshRN® team.

Comments Policy

The first time you comment, it will be moderated and approved to ensure you’re not a robot/spam.  After you’re approved, you’ll be able to comment freely and it will post immediately, regardless if it conflicts with the viewpoint of the author.  However, should you post anything inappropriate, offensive, spammy, threatening, or misleading, the FreshRN team reserves the right to delete your comment.  All comments are welcome and we encourage constructive dialogue.

Ezoic

Analytics

FreshRN uses JetPack and Google Analytics to track traffic and users to the site.

JetPack

Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, a timestamp of the event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.

Activity Tracked: Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by WordPress.com), outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms and country. When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.). The site owner has the ability to force this feature to honor DNT settings of visitors. By default, DNT is currently not honored.

Google Analytics
FreshRN® uses Google Analytics’ 3rd-party audience data such as age, gender, and interests to better understand the behavior of our customers and work with companies that collect information about your online activities to provide advertising targeted to suit your interests and preferences… These companies also use automated technologies to collect information when you click on our ads, which helps track and manage the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

 

You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests, by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and edit or opt-out your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/.

While you visit our site, we’ll track:

We’ll also use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing our site.

To keep track of cart data, WooCommerce makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 5 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
