The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting the privacy of visitors to our Lawyers’ Forum (“Forum”) and describe the information-gathering and dissemination practices for our Forum.

Personal Information

We require certain personal information (such as name and email address) from Forum members to assess their applications, respond, and otherwise communicate with them. We may share the provided personal information with companies we have contracted with to assist us with this Forum’s operation, but solely for Forum operation purposes. We will not provide any personal contact information to any other organization or individual, other than organizations working with us on public health or tobacco control efforts, without the visitor's express consent unless we are required by law or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process. We may sometimes use visitors' Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, and we use them, as necessary, to administer our Forum.

In certain parts of our Forum, visitors may submit personal information and accounts for publication on the Forum. In these circumstances, we request that visitors expressly acknowledge that information will be published or sent to a third party, and we disclose what information we collect and what information will be published or disclosed to a third party.

Demographic and profile data (such as zip code, age, or occupation) are also collected through our site. We use this information to guide our general efforts to supplement, revise, and otherwise improve the Forum’s content to better address visitor concerns and interests.

Cookies

We may use cookies (a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser) to enable us to send registered visitors’ information and other content specific to their expressed interests and to save a visitor’s password so s/he does not have to re-enter it each time the password-required sections of the Forum are visited. We offer visitors the choice to have us save their passwords, and visitors can accept or reject any cookies from our Forum by taking advantage of the related settings and tools on their computers.

We may also use commercially available third-party analytics services (such as Google Analytics) to analyze website traffic and aggregate user behavior to manage our content better and improve our sites. In these cases, the data we receive from third-party companies have been aggregated and/or stripped of elements that would directly tie them to specific user email addresses.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected by this site. Because our site may contain links to other sites, we encourage visitors to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of other sites. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites.

Security

We strive to keep security measures in place to protect visitors against the loss, misuse, or alteration of any visitor information under our control. This includes the use of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for processing donations and financial information.

We give users the following options for changing and modifying personal information:
