COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION The CannaBuzz collects Personal Information: when you register, during use, when you communicate with us or the CannaBuzz, and from other users. The CannaBuzz also collects information, such as anonymous usage statistics, by using cookies, server logs, and other similar technology as you use the CannaBuzz.
Personal Information Collection
You must register to use the CannaBuzz. To register, you may need to provide Personal Information, such as your e-mail address, a user name, birth date and password. You may also provide other optional information.
The CannaBuzz collects Personal Information from social media websites/services when you use that social media website or service credentials to log in. For example, when you log in with your Facebook credentials, CannaBuzz may collect the Personal Information you have made publicly available in Facebook, such as your name and profile picture.
Using the CannaBuzz
CannaBuzz collects information from you and about you from other users through the CannaBuzz. For example, when you interact with other users or make purchases on the CannaBuzz store, CannaBuzz collects provided information, including any Personal Information. In certain circumstances, we may request, allow or otherwise provide you with an opportunity to submit your Personal Information in connection with a feature, program, promotion or some other aspect of the CannaBuzz. For instance, you may: (a) provide your name, mail/shipping address, e-mail address, credit card number and phone number when registering with the CannaBuzz or in connection with a sweepstakes or contest entry or a purchase; (b) provide certain demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, purchase preference, usage frequency, etc.) when participating in a survey or poll or joining a club or group; or (c) post a rating and recommendation on the CannaBuzz. Certain information may not be personally identifiable when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and name). Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in many instances this type of information is required to participate in the particular activity, realize a benefit we may offer, or gain access to the CannaBuzz or certain content on the CannaBuzz.
When you make payments through the CannaBuzz, you may need to provide Personal Information to our third-party service providers, such as your name, billing address, and credit card number.
The CannaBuzz may collect Personal Information through your communications with the CannaBuzz or any of our customer-support team members.
Location and Device Information from Your Mobile Device
The CannaBuzz may collect and store your IP address location. Collection of this information may improve the provision of the CannaBuzz and provide you with access to customized offers.
Cookies, Automatic Data Collection, and Related Technologies
The CannaBuzz collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you use it, including your preferences and other Personal Information and anonymous usage statistics. When you use, visit or interact with the CannaBuzz, we and our third-party service providers, including analytic service providers, may use a variety of technologies, now known and hereafter devised, that automatically collect certain information. We and our third-party service providers receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, and from cookies and similar technology, for various purposes including system administration, reporting non-personal aggregate information to others, and tracking the use of the CannaBuzz. Cookies are small text files placed in a user’s computer browser to store the user’s preferences. Most browsers allow you to block, refuse to accept and/or delete cookies. However, if you do that, then the service may not work properly and/or some parts of the CannaBuzz will not function properly or be available to you. You can usually find out information about how to delete cookies on your browser through a “help” menu.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
Internal and CannaBuzz-Related Usage
We use information, including Personal Information, for internal and CannaBuzz-related purposes and may provide it to third parties. We may use and retain any data we collect to make and provide improvements. Communications We may send email to the email address you provide to us to verify your account and for informational and operational purposes, such as account management, customer CannaBuzz support, or system maintenance. We may also email or otherwise communicate with you in response to activity on the CannaBuzz, such as when someone comments on a post you made, follows you, or sends you a message. If you send us an email or message with questions or comments, then we may use your Personal Information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public Personal Information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. We may also send you an email or message if (a) you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves communications; (b) it relates to purchases you have made with us (e.g., product updates, customer support, etc.); (c) we are sending you information about our other products, services, giveaways, contest or sweepstakes; or (d) you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may (at our discretion) provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us (that is, agree to some communications but not others). You may “opt-out” of receiving future commercial email communications from us as provided in “Opt-Out Information” below. Note, however, if you opt-out, then in some cases you may not receive notifications advising you that you have won a giveaway or prize, and thus would forfeit that giveaway or prize. Even if you opt-out, we reserve the right to send you transactional e-mails such as customer service communications.
Mobile Device Identifiers
Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and we or our third-party service providers may receive such device information if you access the CannaBuzz through mobile devices. Certain features of the CannaBuzz may require collection of mobile phone numbers, and we may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information. Additionally, some mobile phone service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, we or our third-party service providers may receive this information. Embedded Scripts An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the CannaBuzz, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the CannaBuzz, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
WE MAY DISCLOSE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may share your information: • with third-party service providers; • to comply with legal obligations; • to protect and defend our rights and property or the safety of other users; • with your permission; and as discussed in Section 2 above.

Sweepstakes Contests and Promotions.
We may offer giveaways, sweepstakes, contests and other promotions through the CannaBuzz which may require registration.

Security Unfortunately, the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide or transmit to us.
