Names and Addresses

From time to time, we collect names and email addresses of visitors only when they actively submit their data to us via linked surveys hosted on the website. Your information will only be used for the purposes for which it was provided, and shared only with collaborators clearly identified.

If you have signed up to receive information in this way, but no longer wish to receive email updates from us, you can email us at Tobacco-Tactics AT and your details will be removed promptly.


As well as the personal information you optionally provide, TobaccoTactics uses cookies (small text files) by default. Cookies collect anonymous information about you when you visit the site and are used by editors and administrators. We do not analyse or utilise cookies in any other way.

This is aggregate data and does not identify you as an individual.

The data is periodically analysed to see which topics people are most interested in and how we might improve the user experience. To enable us to track use overtime we have aggregated data records for the last three years.

We may share the findings of our analysis with international collaborators and funders, including those outside the EU.
