Collection of Personal Information
We do not collect personal information from visitors without your permission. We only collect your personal contact information on this site, such as your name, address, phone number, or email address if you choose to provide it to us during your visit. This sort of personal information is gathered when you request to receive email news updates, correspond with us through this site, share your story, upload a photo, request to be contacted by the Maine Tobacco Helpline, or request to be on TV.
We will never give or sell your name or information to another organization without your consent.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
All confidential information provided to mainequitlink.com is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified contractors of Maine Prevention Services. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
