Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the QuittingMeds.org website.
In order to provide additional services, however, we may collect the following types of information:
- Information you provide – When you sign up for an account or use a service that requires registration (e.g., for our community, blogging services, etc.), we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password).
- Server log information – When you use our services, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
- User communications – When you send email or other communication to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when using the “Email a Friend” form only to email the article. We do not retain the information you provide on the “Email a Friend” form or use it in any other way. Once the article is sent to your friend, their information is deleted from our system.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can sign up for our email newsletter and receive a weekly email message with health news updates. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you indicate that you wish to sign up for the newsletter.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
If you created an account when you placed an order, you can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging into “My Account.” We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. If you did not create an account, you can change your information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
