Terms & Conditions

The information contained in this website — GetTestedSecretly.com — is for general information and education. It should not be used in lieu of consulting a medical doctor, or trained health professional.

We do not operate any medical testing labs. Instead, we put you in touch with a service which has standardized fees and which may be able to service you through one of their partner lab in your area. Or, if there is no lab close to you, or if you prefer, you may purchase a Do-It-Yourself testing at home using a Mail-In Test Kit.

The information is provided by GetTestedSecretly.com (a service of EmersonThoreau, LLC) and while we endeavor to keep the information up to date and correct, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose. Any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk.

In no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or health, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from the use of this website.

Through this website you are able to link to other websites which are not under the control of GetTestedSecretly.com or EmersonThoreau, LLC. We have no control over the nature, content and availability of those sites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorsement of the views expressed within them.

Some links on this site leading to other sites may be affiliate links, meaning that we have a relationship with the company operating the site and may receive a commission if you make a purchase. For example, if we recommend a book on Amazon.com and you click our link to get to Amazon’s sales page for that book, and if you then purchase that book, we may receive a small commission from Amazon for that sale. This does not increase the price you pay for the book. Affiliate sales commissions are seen as a regular and a normal “advertising expense” and are paid by the vendor out of their profits.

Although we may receive a commission if you engage in, purchase, or download some of our recommended products or services through a link on our website, please know that we recommend products and services only if we feel they will be of benefit to our visitors. We work only with those we believe to be reputable vendors. And, because there are so many other products we can recommend, it makes sense only to choose the high-quality products so that we can maintain your trust.

So, if you have a problem with a product or service recommended by this site and cannot get satisfaction from the vendor, please let us know.

While we may have no authority over the company you actually purchase the item or service from, and only a little leverage (by letting them know we may refuse to send them more customers), we definitely want to know if you are dissatisfied in any way. It will help us decide whether to continue referring people to that site. Very definitely, we want to refer our visitors only to reputable businesses who stand behind their products and services — after all, our own reputation is damaged if our business partners treat our web-visitors badly.

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, EmersonThoreau, LLC takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

Please feel free to contact us about any concerns or questions you have about our site.

Thanks for visiting

Stop Worrying. Get Your Confidence Back.... Get Tested. Get Treated (?) Get on with Your Life!


Please Note: The information on this site is not meant to be used as medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment nor to substitute for the advice of a qualified health professional.

The purpose of this site is to help you protect your health and your personal privacy by putting you in touch with a national network of medical laboratories who can offer you a variety of confidential medical tests. Depending on the results of your test(s) you may then want to schedule an appointment with your own qualified health professional or visit a medical clinic for consultation and treatment.

GET TESTED SECRETLY? This site is to help you get tested “secretly” — without your family or friends or colleagues or even your doctor knowing.  However, if your results come back “positive” for certain STDs (such as HIV) then the laws and regulations determining whom your lab must report that information to varies by state and location.

So be sure to ask the laboratory what happens if your tests come back “positive” — ask what information will be shared and with whom.

Also, this site is a public service which is funded primarily by referral commissions paid by the labs and services and products recommended.  What this means is if you click on a link and buy a service, this site receives a commission on your purchase. For example, if you click on a link to Amazon and make a purchase, this site is paid a small (4% to 6%) commission by Amazon for sending you to their site. Don’t worry: This does NOT increase the price you pay for the services or products you purchase. Just like other advertising, it is an ordinary business expense absorbed by the companies.

Thanks for getting tested, protecting your health, and for making the world safer by reducing the number of people infected by partners who didn’t know they were spreading a disease.

“Get Tested. Get Treated. Get on with Your Life!”
