Quit for Cause Foundation has created this Privacy Policy to explain why we collect particular information and how we will protect your personal privacy within our Web site. Quit for Cause Foundation may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from January 1 2014.

What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, demographic information such as city/state/country. We also collect information related to smoking and quitting smoking. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers. We do not display or share user email addresses we collect. Additionally, we do not display or share birthdays, number of cigarettes a user used to smoke and the price the user used to pay per pack. Because our website encourages interaction between users and relies on support of family and friends who are not registered on our site, all user supplied information not specifically mentioned above that appears within our website is publicly available. Those registered users that would like to completely hide their profile from the public should change their account type to private account. We do not share the information we acquire from visitors or donors on our website with unaffiliated third parties.

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address.
