1. Who is Responsible for the Use of Your Personal Information
Quit Genius is the controller of the personal information we hold about you in connection with your use of the Service. This means that we determine and are responsible for how your personal information is used. You may contact us using the information located in the Contacting Us section below.
2. How We Collect Personal Information from You
2.1 We may have collected personal information about you from a variety of sources:
- From You: We collect personal information that you voluntarily submit directly to us when you use the Service. This can include information you provide to us through the Site or when you set up an account, download and use the App, correspond with us by e-mail or otherwise, subscribe to our mailing lists or other forms of marketing communications, report a problem with the Service, or use some other feature of the Service.
- From Your Use of Our Site or App: We also automatically collect personal information indirectly about how you access and use the Service, and information about the device you use to access the Service.
- From Service Providers: We work with and receive personal information from third parties such as service providers, vendors, contractors, and market researchers.
- From Other Sources: We may supplement the information described above with information we obtain from other third parties. The types of information we collect from third parties include eligibility and claims information of participants, background information on candidates applying for positions, screening and background checks on contractors and employees, prescription histories of members receiving prescriptions. We use the information we receive from these third parties to perform the Services, comply with legal and contractual obligations, and operate our business.
3. Personal Information We Collect and How We Use It.
You have the choice whether to provide us with your personal information. In some circumstances, if you choose not to provide such personal information, we may not be able to provide certain parts of the Service to you or respond to your other requests.
3.1. Information you provide to us directly.
The table at Annex 1 describes the categories of personal information we collect about you, how we use that information, the third parties with to whom we may disclose that information, and for users based in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and UK, the legal basis which we rely on to process the personal information.
3.2 Information we automatically collect.
The table at Annex 2 describes the categories of personal information we collect about you automatically, how we use that information, the third parties with to whom we may disclose that information, and for users based in the EEA and UK, the legal basis which we rely on to process the personal information.
We may link or combine the personal information we collect about you and the information we collect automatically. This allows us to provide you with a personalized experience regardless of how you interact with us.
We may anonymize and aggregate any of the personal information we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymized information for purposes that include testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving the Service, and developing new products and features. We may also share such anonymized and aggregated information with others such as our clients.
4. How Long Will We Store Your Personal Information
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. In general, we keep information for as long as we are required to do so under applicable law, which can be as long as seven (7) years. Where we are not under a legal obligation to maintain information for a longer period, our general practice is to dispose of information after one (1) year from your last interaction with us.
5. Recipients of Personal Information
We may share your personal information with the following parties (as described in Annexes 1 and 2):
- Medical professionals: we may share your personal information with third party medical associated with us professionals (“Providers”) that we engage to provide care and treatment to Members where indicated in our Programs or with your other care providers.
- Service providers and contractors: we may share your personal information with service providers and contractors who perform services for us or on our behalf, which may include providing professional services (such as legal and accounting services), mailing, email, chat, or video services, fraud prevention, cloud or web hosting, analytic services, or fulfilling orders our Providers place for connected devices, medications, or other items for Members. We contractually require service providers and contractors acting on our behalf to take reasonable steps to protect your personal information and to not use your personal information for any purpose other than that for which it was given to the service provider or contractor.
- Your Employer. If you enroll through a program offered or sponsored by your employer, we may provide information back to your employer related to, for example, your completion or progress through our program.
- Third parties at your request: You may have the option to share your content with other users of the Service or with your other care providers.
- Purchasers and third parties in connection with a corporate business transaction: your personal information may be disclosed to third parties in connection with a transaction, such as a merger, sale of assets or shares, reorganization, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business.
- To federal, state, or local government agencies or to other third parties as required by applicable law or pursuant to a valid legal warrant, subpoena, court order, or other legal or regulatory mandate, or as necessary for us to defend or assert legal claims.
- Analytics companies. We use selected third parties to collect data about how you interact with our Site and App. This information may be used to, among other things, improve the functionality of our Service.
- From time to time, we may disclose your personal information to parties such as law enforcement or other government agencies when we, in good faith, believe you or others are acting unlawfully, when we believe it is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any law, regulation or other governmental request, to operate our business properly, to protect or defend our rights or the rights or well-being of our users, and when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the health and safety of our employees, other consumers, and the general public.
6. Marketing and Advertising
We may also send you marketing messages. For some marketing messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you.
If you are an EEA or UK-based user, we will only send you marketing emails, text messages or push notifications if you have given us your consent to do so.

To stop receiving marketing email or text message communications, you can follow the unsubscribe instructions in the communication. You can disable push notifications via the App settings on your device. Opting out of calls, texts messages and push notifications does not mean that we will not contact you about your account our Services.
7. Protecting, Storing and Transferring Your Personal Information
We implement technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change or damage. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Specific measures we use include, depending on the type of data, encrypting your personal information in transit and at rest; protecting your information with firewalls, anti-malware and data loss prevention systems; conducting vulnerability scans and penetration tests on systems holding your information; training our employees on security awareness and data handling topics; and having a third-party audit of our security controls annually.
7.2. International Transfers of your Personal Information.
The personal information we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in where we and our third-party service providers have operations, including in the United States. If you are accessing our Service from the EEA or UK, in the event of such a transfer, we ensure that either: (i) the personal information is transferred to countries recognized as offering an equivalent level of protection; or (ii) the transfer is made pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission or as may be applicable, the equivalent clauses approved by the UK Government. For more information on the transfer safeguards we rely on and where they have been made available you may contact us by using the details in the Contacting Us section below.

- Right to erasure. You have the right, in some circumstances, to require us to erase your personal information without undue delay if the continued processing of that personal information is not justified.
- Right to restriction. You have the right, in some circumstances, to require us to limit the purposes for which we process your personal information if the continued processing of the personal information in this way is not justified, such as where the accuracy of the personal information is contested by you.
- Right to withdraw consent. If you have provided consent for the processing of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, this will not affect the lawfulness of our use of your personal information before your withdrawal. However, in certain circumstances, if you withdraw your consent, we might not be able to continue providing Services to you as a result.
- Right to opt-out of automated decision making. We use automated decision making to determine your eligibility for certain services. You can opt-out of our use of this form of decision making.

If you wish to exercise one of these rights, please contact us using the details in the Contacting Us section below.

10. Automated Decision-Making
In some instances, our use of your personal information may result in automated decisions being taken (including profiling) that legally affect you or similarly significantly affect you. Automated decisions mean that a decision concerning you is made automatically on the basis of a computer determination (using software algorithms), without our human review. For example, we use automated decisions to determine the level of care to provide you based on your response to certain questions. We have implemented measures to safeguard the rights and interests of individuals whose personal information is subject to automated decision-making in accordance with applicable law.
As described above, when we make an automated decision about you, you have the right to contest the decision, to express your point of view, and to require a human review of the decision. Please see section 9.3 above for more information about how to exercise your rights.
11. Notice to Residents of California

12. Notice to Residents of Nevada
13 Cookies, Tracking, and Do Not Track
Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our users, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser at this time.
Our emails may contain tracking pixels that identify if and when you have opened an email that we have sent you, how many times you have read it and whether you have clicked on any links in that email. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our marketing email campaigns, make the emails we send to you more relevant to your interests and to understand if you have opened and read any important administrative emails we might send you. Most popular email clients will allow you to block these pixels by disabling certain external images in emails. You can do this through the settings on your email client – these generally give you the option of choosing whether emails will display “remote images”, ”remote content” or “images” by default.
14. Links to Third Party Sites
The Service may, from time to time, contain links to and from third party websites, including those of other users, our partner networks, advertisers, partner merchants, news publications, retailers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we are not responsible or liable for their policies, actions, or omissions. Please check the individual policies before you submit any information to those websites.
15. Our Policy Towards Children
The Service is not directed at persons under 18 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from any persons under 18. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, without your consent, then please contact us using the details in the Contacting Us section below so that we can take steps to remove such information and terminate any account your child has created with us. We do not sell or share the information of any person under 18.

Annex 4 – California Privacy Disclosures
Shine The Light
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, allows California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below. However, please be aware that we are not sharing your information for any third party’s marketing purposes.
Selling and Sharing of Personal Information
Quit Genius has not sold consumers’ personal information in the preceding 12 months for any monetary value. However, our use of certain website cookies may be considered a “sale” of information under California law. In the past twelve months, we may have disclosed your internet activity or geolocation with third parties whose cookies are on our websites. These cookies are used to analyze usage of our website, provide you with relevant Quit Genius advertising and products, and provide additional, dynamic functionality to our websites. You can opt-out of the use of these cookies by using the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link in the footer of the web page. We also recognize opt-out preference signals contained in HTTP header fields.
Quit Genius does not “share” personal information as that term is used in the California Consumer Privacy Act.
We do not use or disclose your sensitive personal information for any purpose other than as permitted by applicable law. We do not sell or share your sensitive personal information as those terms are used in the California Consumer Privacy Act.
From time to time, we may offer financial incentives to consumers in exchange for the consumer sharing certain personal information with us. The specific instructions for how to participate and the rewards offered as incentives may vary and are set out within each program. Our good faith estimate of the value of your information is the value of the benefit we offer to you.

Exercising Your Privacy Rights
If you are a California Consumer, to exercise your rights, please submit a request using one of the following methods:
Quit Genius cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or your authority to make the request. When you submit a request, we will take steps to verify your identity by comparing it to data in our possession or other methods such as, if you have an account with us, sending an email to the email address we have on file for you asking you to confirm your identity and that you have authorized a request. You are not required to create an account with us to submit a request. If you don’t have an account with us, or if you do but we need further information to verify your identity, we may ask you to provide us with information about yourself in order to verify your identity.
We will only use personal information you provide in connection with identity verification to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request and whenever feasible, we will attempt to match the information you provide with information we may already have about you.
If you wish to authorize a third party to make a request on your behalf through an authorized agent, you must contact us directly as provided above and you or your agent must provide a valid California power of attorney or comparable documentation of written permission from you and verification of your identity with Quit Genius. You may also make a privacy request on behalf of your minor child by contacting us as provided above.
