Privacy Policy

This is a website of the American Legacy Foundation (“Legacy”), which is dedicated to creating a world where young people reject tobacco and anyone can quit.  We respect your privacy and have created this policy to explain what information we collect and how we use it.  If you have any questions about this policy, please contact us at info@becomeanex.org.

General User Information
We automatically collect information about our site’s users, including the domain name and IP address of visitors, the browser and operating system used, and the date and time of each visit. This information is only used in aggregate for our own research purposes and to improve the site’s content, structure, and security. We share this information only with our vendors, who use it for the same purposes.

Cookies
Cookies are information files that allow websites to remember users’ activities on a website.  When you visit our site, we may send one or more cookies to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser.  We use cookies for several purposes.  For example, if you are a registered user, cookies allow the server to know that you are allowed to access information or perform operations restricted to logged-in users.  We use the information we learn from cookies to improve the quality of our service, for example, by tracking user trends.  We share this information only with our vendors, who use it for the same purposes.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  However, some of our features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

If you choose to create a profile or otherwise provide personal information on our site, we will use that information to customize and improve your website experience.  If you sign up to receive emails and text messages from us, we will use your information only to send you messages you have opted to receive, which may include communicating with you via U.S. mail.  We share your information only with our own vendors, who use it for the same purposes.  Neither Legacy nor its vendors will ever share your personal information with anyone else without your consent, except in limited circumstances, such as complying with legal processes or preventing fraud or imminent harm.  We will never sell your personal information.  If you would like to edit or delete your profile or any other information you have provided to us, please visit http://www.becomeanex.org/the-ex-plan.html#signup or contact us at info@becomeanex.org.

There are spaces on this website where you can post messages and publicly display other information.  Some of these spaces are operated by third-party vendors, which have their own privacy policies.  Be aware that any information you post will be non-confidential and publicly available.  We reserve the right to use any such public information to further our charitable mission.  If you would like to request the removal of any information you have posted, please contact us at info@becomeanex.org.
