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.
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.
