FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the limits of our copyright?
Recently, we have had several questions regarding the limits of our copyright—for both our Classic modules and our E-learning courses. To help clarify the restrictions, here are the answers to those frequently asked copyright questions.
Classic PDF Format
Our organization just purchased a number of your Classic topics in PDF format. How can we use them without violating your copyright?
Every PDF topic includes the following:
- A copyright date, which is the year of publication.
- An expiration date, which is two years from the date of publication.
In addition, each topic will have the following message:
This topic may be copied for use within each physical location that purchases this inservice from In the Know. All other copying or distribution is strictly prohibited, including sharing between multiple locations and/or uploading the file or any portion thereof to the internet or to an LMS (unless a license to do so is obtained from In the Know).
In accordance with industry standards, this inservice material expires on (the listed expiration date). After that date, you may purchase a current copy of the materials by calling 877-809-5515.
This means that our copyrighted materials are for use within your specific (employment) location only. You may print each inservice you purchase as often as desired, until it expires, for utilization with the employees for your location only.
Once we print the “learner’s section” of an inservice, can we send it home with our nurse aides?
The PDFs we purchased from you are “locked.” Can we get unlocked versions so we can add our logo?
Our organization has several locations. Can each location buy a few topics and then share them?
Can we add the PDF version of your inservices to our company intranet?
In addition, please note that any topics added to an intranet MUST be secured by a password. Our IT specialists make random checks to make sure that our topics are not accessible by the general public.
We run a private school that offers training for certified nursing assistants. Can we purchase your Classic modules and then resell them to our students?
What is your new In the Know On the Go program all about?
Great question! With In the Know On the Go, we offer healthcare organizations a way to provide continuing education to all their nurse aides using the power of the internet. Simply purchase the number of seats you need for your caregivers and they’ll have access to our complete library of engaging, interactive online modules! ITK on the Go is mobile-friendly, too, so your nurse aides can complete their CEs on a computer, a tablet or a smart phone.
