Surveys and Promotions: From time-to-time we may request information from you and other users via surveys, contests or sweepstakes. Participation in these surveys, contests or sweepstakes is completely voluntary so you and other users have a choice whether to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

Information Shared with Social Networking Sites: You may be given the option to link your account on third party social networking services so that you can share your information and/or to comment on Cheech & Chong’s HEMP products and services or take advantage of other features of Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications. In that case, the authentication of your login credentials is conducted through that third party social networking service provider. If you choose to share information from the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications through any social networking service provider you should review the privacy policies of that social networking service provider. You should make sure that you are comfortable with the information your third party social networking service provider may make available to us by visiting those services’ privacy policies and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those services. By authorizing the social networking service provider to provide this information to us we reserve the right to use, transfer, assign, sell, share and provide access to such information in the same ways described in this Privacy Policy.

Information You Provide About a Third Party: If you send someone else a communication from the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, such as sending an invitation to a friend, the information you provide (names, e-mail addresses, etc.) is used to facilitate the communication and is not used for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly say otherwise. Please be aware that when you use any send-to-a-friend functionality on the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, your e-mail address may be included in the communication sent to your friend.

User Generated Content: Please remember that any information you disclose while participating on the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, including our public forums (“Interactive Forums”), becomes public information and is subject to redistribution by Cheech & Chong’s HEMP and others who gain access.

There is no expectation of privacy when playing, posting, or otherwise participating on the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications or in the Interactive Forums. If you post content, such as messages, photos and videos, please be aware that any personally identifiable information contained in such content is accessible to registered users or visitors to that Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Application or Community and we have no control over how those users may use your personally identifiable information. We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and content associated with the interactive areas on our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications and Interactive Forums. We reserve the right to take action in connection with any content we deem to be inappropriate.

Information Collected Through Third Parties

Supplemental Information: We may from time to time supplement information you give us with information from other sources, such as information to validate or update your address or other demographic and lifestyle information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect, to target our communications so that we can inform you of products, services and offers that may be of interest, and for internal business analysis or other business purposes.

Information Collected Through Technology

In addition to any personal information or other information that you choose to submit to us, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies such as cookies, pixel tags and web beacons, browser analysis tools, and web server logs. As you use our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, your browser and devices communicate with servers operated by us, our business partners and services providers to coordinate and record the interactivity and fill your requests for services and information (“Usage Information”).

We collect many different types of information from cookies and other technologies. For example, we may collect information from the devices you use to access our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, your operating system type or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device. Browsers routinely send these types of information to web servers. In addition, we collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for your computer or other device used to access the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications (any, a “Device”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to the device used to access the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, and our computers identify your device by its Device Identifier. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications and the website you visit after you leave our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, if this information is supplied to us by your browser. We may use this Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including to enhance or otherwise improve the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications. The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on your computers or mobile devices, which are then transmitted back to our Sites by your computers or mobile devices. These servers are operated, and the cookies managed by us, our business partners or our service providers. For example, when you visit the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, we and our service providers may place cookies on your computers or mobile devices. Cookies allow us to recognize you when you return, track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. They also help us provide a customized experience and help us to detect certain kinds of fraud.

Cookies: A “cookie” is a small amount of information that a web server sends to your browser that stores information about your account, your preferences, and your use of the Sites. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your activity with the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications with other information we store about you in your profile or as related to your interactions with the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications. Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computers or mobile devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use persistent cookies for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided. Flash cookies, known as local shared objects, are data files placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your Device to personalize your visit. Our third-party service providers also may use Flash cookies to collect and store Usage Information. Flash cookies are different from standard browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences and tracking your visits to our web pages.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a persistent or session cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off such cookies through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. However, cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies click here. It is important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, if you turn off cookies, you may not be able to place orders or make purchases. We use cookies and other technologies to help track your use of our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications and services, learn about your preferences, and provide you with an improved experience. Cookies also collect information about your use of our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, store your preferences such as your preferred language and location, and collect Device Information, such as media access control (MAC) address, Device type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, browser type and version, installed plug-ins and add-ins and language. They also allow us to serve specific messages to you, to help ensure that you do not see the same message repeatedly. We also use cookies to track whether you open links in the e-mails we send.

Pixel tags: We also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications to collect Usage Information and Device Information, such as the recipient’s e-mail address, whether and when an e-mail is opened, and whether a link contained in the e-mail has been clicked. Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images placed on web pages or in e-mails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an e-mail, Pixel Tags generate a notice of that action. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications and promotions.

Location-Based Information: We may collect information about your location when you access or use the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications; or if you choose to turn on your Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other geolocation functionality when you use the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, we may collect and use location information, for example, to send you information about our products and services and to allow you to share your location with other users. We may also use this information to personalize your experience and improve the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications. For example, knowing your location may allow us to make special offers available to you that are only available in your location, and our stores are able to determine the frequency of your visits and tailor in-store offers to you. If you no longer wish to have your geolocation information collected and used by us, you may opt-out by disabling the location and Bluetooth features on your Device.

Device Fingerprinting: Device Fingerprinting is the process of analyzing and combining sets of information elements from your Device’s browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed fonts, in order to create a “fingerprint” of your Device and uniquely identify your Device and applications.

In-Store Tracking: In addition to location-based tracking we may also use cameras, Wi-Fi signals, Bluetooth signals, and other technologies to track and record your movement through our stores, improve our stores, and your in-store experience.

Third Party Analytic Technologies: We use third parties’ analytic and other tools to better understand who is using the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, how people are using the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, how to improve the effectiveness of the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications and their content, and to help us or those third parties serve more targeted advertising to you across the Internet. Those third-party companies may use cookies, pixel tags, or other technologies to collect and store anonymous information such as time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page of the Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications, Device Identifiers, type of operating system and browser used, and other web sites you may have visited. They might combine information they collect from your interaction with Cheech & Chong’s HEMP Applications with personal information they collect from other sources.
