We collect both “personal information” and “other information” about users. For purposes of this Policy, “other information” is information that we cannot directly associate with a specific person without the aid of additional information. By contrast, “personal information,” is information such as a name or email address that we can directly associate with a specific person or entity without additional information. When we combine other information with personal information, we treat all of the combined information as personal information.
You can visit the Site without submitting any personal information. However, if you choose to use certain features on the Site, you will be required to provide personal information. Such information could include, for example, your name, email address, user name and password, payment card information, billing address, shipping address, and telephone number. Our website also contains a “Contact Us” feature through which you may submit additional personal information.
We may combine personal information collected through the Site with information that we collect about you in other contexts—such as our communications with you via email or telephone, or information we obtain from third parties. We will treat such combined information as personal information and protect it in accordance with this Policy.
Your personal information may include any or all of the following: your full name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, zip or postal code, gender, a profile bio, and birth date. Some users may be required to submit their (a) means of age verification (e.g., driver’s license), or (b) medical marijuana recommendation, including their recommending doctor’s name and license number, contact information, verification methodology, and verification number
We also passively collect other information through the Site using variously technologies. We may use such information to track, for example, your usage of the Site. Other information may be collected in the following ways:
Use of Data
Weedbates uses the information that we collect for a variety of purposes. If we have personal information about you, we may use it, for example: to respond to your questions or requests concerning the Site or other products or services offered by us or our partners; to fulfill the terms of any agreement you have with us; to fulfill your requests for our products or services or otherwise complete a transaction that you initiate; to send you information about our products or services and other topics that are likely to be of interest to you, including newsletters, updates, or other communications; to deliver confirmations, account information, notifications, and similar operational communications; to improve your user experience and the quality of our services; to comply with legal and/or regulatory requirements; and to manage our business.
We use the other information that we collect for such purposes as: counting and recognizing users of the website; analyzing how the Site and various features of the Site are used; improving the Site and enhancing users’ experiences with the Site; creating new products and services or improving our existing products and services; enabling additional website analytics and research concerning the Site; and managing our business. Weedbates may link information gathered by cookies and web beacons with personal information. But in that event, we will treat the combined information as personal information.
We also may use the personal and other information that we collect to send you marketing emails and promotional communications. To opt-out of these communications, see “Choices and Access to Information” below.
Data Sharing with Third Parties
We share your personal information and other information with other parties for a variety of purposes, as described below.
Affiliates. We may share personal and other information with our corporate affiliates for the purposes described in this Policy.
Third-party service providers and business partners. Weedbates uses third-party service providers to help us manage and improve the website and other services. These service providers may collect and/or use your personal or other information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed above in the section entitled “Use of Data.” For example, we use third parties to help us target and implement our email communications, host our website, process payments for our products, and manage our information systems. We may also use third-party platforms to help us manage our relationships with the people and companies that use our services.
We may share your personal or other information with other third parties when necessary to fulfill your requests for services; to complete a transaction that you initiate; to meet the terms of any agreement that you have with us or our partners; or to manage our business.
Your direct sharing of personal information through third-party websites and services. The Site may enable you to directly share personal information with websites or online services operated by third parties. For example, the website may contain links to third-party websites that incorporate comment and social media features. If you choose to use these features, you may disclose your personal information not just to those third-party websites and services, but also to their users and the public more generally. Because these third-party websites and services are not operated by us, we are not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal and other information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third-party websites or services, and not this Policy.
Surveys or Contests. We may ask you to participate in surveys (processed by us or third parties) that help us understand your use of the Site and our products. You may also have the opportunity to participate in contests on the Site. Participation in surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Any personal or other information provided to Weedbates (or supplied by you or Weedbates to such third-party survey or contest providers) in connection with these surveys will only be used in relation to that survey and as stated in this Policy.
In particular, we use the information to notify contest winners and award prizes, monitor site traffic, personalize the Site, and send participants an email newsletter. We may also use this information for publicity or marketing purposes and may publish this information in our sole discretion. The rules applicable to any individual survey or contest will be published prior to the collection of any personally identifiable information and you agree to such use by submitting any information.
Legal purposes. We also may use or share your personal or other information with third parties when we believe, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary:
Aggregated information. From time to time, we may also share anonymized and aggregated information about users, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site or our products.
Third-Party Analytics and Advertising
Online interest-based advertising. The Site may enable third parties to collect information through cookies, web beacons, and device identifiers, such as IDFA or Advertising ID, for use in online interest-based advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that you visited our website to target online ads for Weedbates to you on non-Weedbates websites. In addition, we or our third-party advertising networks might use information about your use of the website to help target non-Weedbates advertisements to you on unaffiliated websites or mobile apps based on your online activity in general. For information about behavioral advertising practices, including privacy and confidentiality, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website [https://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising] or the Digital Advertising Alliance website [http://digitaladvertisingalliance.org].
We and our third-party providers may use collected information to establish connections among related web browsers and devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and computers) for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. We may match your browsers or devices if you log into the same online service on multiple devices or if your devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about your activity on websites or apps on your current browser or device may be combined and used with information collected from your other browsers or devices. For example, we or our third-party providers may use this information to deliver the same ad on multiple devices, to limit the number of times you see an ad across your devices, and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns across devices.
You may opt out of our third-party service providers’ interest-based advertising practices and cross-device technologies in web browsers and mobile apps by following the instructions below. Please note that the opt-out will apply only to the specific browser or device from which you opt out, and therefore you will need to opt out separately on all of your browsers and devices. If you delete or reset your cookies or mobile identifiers, change browsers, or use a different device, any opt-out cookie or tool may no longer work and you will have to opt out again.
For web browsers you may remove yourself from the targeted advertising of companies within the Network Advertising Initiative by opting out here [http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!%2F], or of companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance program by opting out here [http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN#!%2F]. For Canadian users, opt out here [https://youradchoices.ca/en/tools], and for EU users, opt out here [http://www.youronlinechoices.eu].
To opt out in mobile apps, please download and follow the instructions provided in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s AppChoices tool at www.aboutads.info/appchoices [https://youradchoices.com/appchoices]. In addition, some mobile operating systems allow you to opt out by adjusting the advertising preferences on your mobile device. For example:
The use of online tracking mechanisms by third parties is subject to those third parties’ own privacy policies, and not this Policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer or other device, you also may set your browser to block cookies. Our website currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” browser headers. However, you can limit tracking through these third-party programs by taking the steps discussed above.
Weedbates uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. However, no security program is foolproof, and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal or other information.
The Service is not directed to individuals under the age of 18. Please note that certain of our Websites and Services require you to be at least twenty-one (21) years of age to access and use such Websites and Services, and we request that these individuals who do not meet the minimum age requirement to not provide personal information through the Service. If your child has submitted Personal Information and you would like to request that such Personal Information be removed, please contact us as explained below under Contacts.
California law requires that we provide you with a summary of your privacy rights under the California Online Privacy Protection Act (the "Act") and the California Business and Professions Code. Thus, as a California resident, you have a right to request certain information under the Act with respect to the types of personal information we have shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year, subject to certain exceptions. All requests for such information must be sent to [email protected].
This same California law permits us to provide you, in response to your written request, with a cost-free means to choose not to have your information shared rather than providing the above described information. To that end, you may request that we do not disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes by contacting us by email at [email protected].
Choices and Access to Information
If you no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, please follow the “unsubscribe” instructions that are included at the bottom of each message or email us at [email protected]. We may still send you certain communications relating to the Site, such as service announcements and administrative messages.
You have the right and ability to edit certain account information on our Site at any time by accessing your account settings or contacting us by email at [email protected]. Users may also have additional rights to access, review, correct, delete, or inquire about information that we hold about them. To make such a request, please send us an email at [email protected]. Please note that we may need to verify your identity or request additional information from you before we are able to comply with your request.
Retention of Information
We retain information for as long as reasonably necessary to deliver our services to you, to fulfill the purposes described in this Policy, or as required by law. To request the deletion of your personal information, please send us an email at [email protected]. We will make our best effort to delete all personal information about you. However, please note that certain information, including other information, may be retained in backup databases.
Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or service providers, and by using our Service or by providing consent to us (if required by law), your information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including but not limited to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country. We will use commercially reasonable means to protect personal information when it is transferred to our affiliates or third parties in other countries.
The personal and other information that we collect through or in connection with the Site is transferred to and processed in the United States for the purposes described above. We also may subcontract the processing of your data to, or otherwise share your data with, affiliates or third parties in the United States or countries other than your country of residence. The data-protection laws in these countries may be different from, and less stringent than, those in your country of residence. By using the Site or by providing any personal or other information to us, you expressly consent to such transfer and processing.
