As part of our commitment to providing the best possible service to our Quitline callers and web site users, Quitline records information about Quitline callers and people registered on the Web site in a database so that they do not have to provide the same details each time they use our services. This is necessary as callers usually speak to different staff each time they call the Quitline and it means the team can provide better support continuity.

Quitline also records all telephone calls. We select a small percentage of these calls randomly for staff training purposes on a one-to-one basis. This helps improve the quality of the Quitline service, ensures that the quit smoking information provided is consistent and accurate and identifies ways of providing callers with a better service to assist them in quitting smoking.

The privacy of personal information is very important and we are committed to protecting the privacy of all Quitline callers and web site users. All database information and call recordings are stored securely, and accessed only by our trained staff.

When you register with Quitline, the information comes to us and nothing is saved on the website. We do use cookies but only to remember your login. When you log back into this site using your password, the information you see and can update is held in our secure database, not on the website. The Quitline blogs can be viewed by anyone who visits the site. To contribute to the blogs, you need to register with Quitline.
