5.              Types of Data We Collect.  “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data.  “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons.   We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.

(a)             Information You Provide to Us.  

·        We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first and last name, e-mail and mailing addresses, telephone number, professional title, company name, and password when you create an account to log in to our network (“Account”).

·        When you use our Services to place an order for testing with a Laboratory User, we will collect all information required by the Laboratory User, including your name, location, type of test requested and delivery information.

·        We retain information on your behalf, such as files and messages that you store using your Account.

·        If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply or improve our services. 

·        If you are a Customer, when you post content (text, images, photographs, messages, comments or any other kind of content that is not your e-mail address) on our Site, the information contained in your posting will be stored in our servers and other registered users of our Services will be able to see it, along with any other information that you choose to make public on your profile page (“Profile”). 

·        If you are a Lab, any content that you include on your page on our Site can be viewed by other registered Users of our Services.

·        When you post messages on the message boards of our Site or when you post a rating or evaluation of another Registered User, the information contained in your posting will be stored on our servers and other users will be able to see it.

·        When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information. 

·        We also collect other types of Personal Data that you provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version, Internet browser type and version, and other requested information if you contact us via e-mail regarding support for the Services.

·        We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our Site that state that Personal Data is being collected.

(b)            Information Collected via Technology.

·        Information Collected by Our Servers.  To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit. 

·        Log Files.  As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track Users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our Users’ needs.  For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you, and the information could then be used to serve information appropriate to your interests. 

·        Cookies.  Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information.  “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website.  We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site.    This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs. 

·        Pixel Tags In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs).  Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users.  In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages.  Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users.  We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.  We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.

·        Google Analytics. We use third party analytics services, including but not limited to Google Analytics (“Analytics Services”), to help analyze how Users use our Site and Services.  We use the information we get from Analytics Services to improve our Site and Services, to better understand User behavior and trends, to calculate and monitor our business metrics, monitor the health of our Site/Apps, and to present and market our products and services to third parties. The information generated by the Cookies or other technologies about your use of our Site and Services (the “Analytics Information”) is transmitted to the Analytics Services. The Analytics Services use Analytics Information to compile reports on user activity. The Analytics Services may also transfer the Analytics Information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process Analytics Information on their behalf. Each Analytics Service’s ability to use and share Analytics Information is restricted by such Analytics Service’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.  By using our Site and Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Analytics Services in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For a full list of Analytics Services, please contact us at team@confidentcannabis.com.

(c)             Information Collected from You About Others.  If you decide to invite a third party to create an Account, we will collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party.  We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s names and e-mail addresses as required above.  You or the third party may contact us at team@confidentcannabis.com to request the removal of this information from our database.

(d)            Information Collected from Third Party Companies.  We may receive Personal and/or Anonymous Data about you from Labs that offer their testing services on our Site.  These third party companies may supply us with Personal Data.  We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our Site in order to improve the Services we provide.
