COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We are committed to protecting the privacy of the adult consumers who have requested to be on our marketing contact list and the confidentiality of the personal information that they provide to us. We collect information that is needed to add adult consumers to our marketing contact list at their request, to serve these adult consumers, and to administer our business (e.g., to independently verify that a consumer is 18 years of age or older or to conduct consumer research among consumers 18 years of age or older). We diligently strive to maintain recent and accurate information on the adult consumers on our marketing contact list through consumer surveys, consumer-initiated contacts, and responses to our marketing programs (online and offline), as well as through address update services.
We have strict policies and procedures in place to safeguard the privacy of adult consumers. We maintain adult consumers’ information in a secure environment and grant access to it only in accordance with our security standards. We may share your information with our affiliates who market products or nicotine replacement therapy products that you might be interested in. Please refer to the section entitled “Personal Information We May Share.” Additionally, sometimes it is necessary for us to share your information with third parties that perform services for us. When we contract with other parties to help us conduct our business, we require them to protect your personal information. Further, we do not permit them to use or store your personal information for any purpose other than the work they are doing on our behalf or as required by law. All our employees (and our affiliates) and third parties hired to work for us are held accountable for strictly adhering to these policies and procedures at all times.

Although we appreciate people’s interest in our business, it is our policy to decline consideration of unsolicited ideas and suggestions offered or submitted by the general public. We rely on our research and marketing staffs for the generation and implementation of new concepts. This is necessary in order to avoid misunderstandings over the origin of ideas. We are constantly generating new ideas, many of which we cannot use until years after they were first conceived. Accordingly, we do not accept unsolicited ideas for consideration, and ask you not to submit ideas for products, advertising, etc.
