Acceptable Use Policy

The Acceptable Use Policy below defines the actions which QuitNet considers to be abusive, and thus, strictly prohibited. The examples named in this list are non-exclusive, and are provided solely for guidance to QuitNet users. If you are unsure whether any contemplated use or action is permitted, please read our Policy FAQ's or fill out a problem report and we will assist you.

General Conduct
Users are prohibited from transmitting on or through any of QuitNet's services, any material that is, in QuitNet's sole discretion, unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libelous, or hateful, or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law. Users may not impersonate other users or QuitNet staff. Multiple accounts held by one user cannot be used in a deceptive or otherwise disruptive manner.

QuitNet may edit user-submitted content to remove language QuitNet considers offensive or vulgar. QuitNet reserves the right to cancel the account of or ban any user whose conduct, in the sole discretion of QuitNet staff, is unduly disruptive to the user community or other functions of the site, as defined above or otherwise.

Commercial content in forum posts, Qmails, chat messages or in user profiles is strictly prohibited. Commercial content is defined as any that promotes a corporate, non-profit, and/or personal website, product, or service (smoking related or not) for an organization or individual that benefits from the sale or use of that website, product, or service.

QuitNet services may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of United States or state regulation or law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute. QuitNet reserves the right to remove such illegal material from its servers.

System and Network Security
Users may not attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any QuitNet account ("cracking"). This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the User, logging into a server or account the User is not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of other Healthways online services.

Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. QuitNet will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations.

Q-Mail, Whispers, Chat, Forums
Harassment, whether through language, frequency, or size of messages, is prohibited on QuitNet including in Q-Mail, Q-Cards, Chat, Forums, Testimonials and in User Profiles.

Users may not send Q-mail or Chat messages to any person who does not wish to receive them. If a recipient asks to stop receiving such communications, the sender must stop. Users may not copy personal messages sent to them via Qmail or email and post them in discussion forums, user profile pages, chat or any other publicly viewable portion of QuitNet.

Users may not attempt to interfere with service to any user, host, or network ("denial of service attacks"). This includes, but is not limited to, "flooding" of Q-mail boxes or Chat.

Other QuitNet Policies
Read our Privacy Policy for information about what we do with the personal information you provide us.

Questions about this policy should be referred to the QuitNet Policy FAQ's. Reports of activity in violation of this policy may be sent via a problem report from the Acceptable Use Policy FAQ's. Violations of this policy can result in temporary or permanent revocation of access to QuitNet.
