Policies & Procedures


The protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance to HypnosisCE. We have developed our Privacy Policy to ensure that your personal information is treated carefully and appropriately.

What Information is Collected and How is it Used?

HypnosisCE collects information necessary to provide you with your CE certificate. By providing that information, you consent to our collection and use of it, as described in the Privacy Policy. Personal information is only collected if you set up an account. If you set up an account we ask for information such as your name, professional degree, license number, address, email address, phone number and course evaluation. You need to set up an account if you purchase a course for CE credits. If you do not purchase a course for CE credits, you do not need to set up an account.

We do not permanently store credit card information. You may, infrequently, receive future email notifications about such things as new course offerings, changes in the website, and special promotions. You can remove your name from the email list at any time by sending an email message to bruce@bruceeimer.com

Consent to Use Information

By using HypnosisCE you are agreeing to the collection and use of personal information as outlined in the privacy policy.


HypnosisCE uses security measures consistent with current information practices, to protect its website, email, and other information. These measures include technical, procedural, monitoring and tracking steps intended to protect data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction. We restrict access to personal customer information and only allow disclosure to assist in the administrative process.


At HypnosisCE, we do not offer refunds. This is because:

  1. We assume when you choose to order a course, you wanted to take that course.
  2. When you order a course, you will automatically receive online access to download the course workbook (as a pdf file) and the course knowledge test. We will correct any problems related to a billing error. Issues related to billing will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions or problems, please contact the program administrator at bruce@bruceeimer.com

Complaint and Grievance Procedure

HypnosisCE is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the Ethical Principles of the American Psychological Association (APA), as well as with those of any other organization for whom it provides CE courses. HypnosisCE will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants (Users).

The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the program administrator in consultation our advisory board. While we go to great lengths to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which come to the program administrator. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.

When a participant (User) has a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

(1) If the grievance concerns course content, or the style of presentation, the individual who has a grievance will indicate his/her comments in written format on the course evaluation. All course evaluations are reviewed by the program administrator. Confidentiality of the grieved individual will be maintained.

(2) If the grievance goes beyond the course evaluation stage, the individual can contact the program administrator by email or phone. An attempt will be made to resolve the grievance informally.

(3) If the complaint cannot be resolved informally by these methods, the written complaint will be submitted to one or more members of the advisory board. The Board will formulate a response that will be sent to the complainant.

(4) If that is not sufficient, the complainant will be referred to the Ethics Committee of his or her organization. If you have any questions or problems related to a complaint or grievance, please contact the program administrator at bruce@bruceeimer.com
