Your privacy is extremely important to us at BuyBudNow. In order
to better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining
our online information practices and the choices you can make about
the way your information is collected and used. You agree to consent
to these policies by virtue of using our website in a way that leads
to you providing us with personal information.
Provincial Law & Accompanying Rights
Please understand that you may have additional rights originating from
Provincial laws based on where you live. These Provincial based
rights may augment, strengthen, or otherwise somehow compliment any privacy
rights you have inherently or under Federal law. Our policy is to comply
fully with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we operate.
Accordingly, you are free to use our ‘contact us’ form in order to reach us
at any time to assert any Provincial rights.
Our Commitment To Minors' Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important to us.
For this reason, our website will never collect or maintain information
from those we actually know are under 21 years of age, and no part of our
website is structured to attract anyone under this age.
Under our Terms and Conditions, individuals under 21 years of age are not
allowed to use our website and access our services. It is not our intention
to offer products or services to minors.
Collection of Personal Information
When visiting websites on the internet, the IP address of the device used to
access it may be logged, along with the dates and times of access. This information
is commonly used to analyze trends, administer our website, track users movement, and/or
gather broad demographic information for internal use such as statistical assessments and
website improvement. BuyBudNow takes a strong stance against this practice, and will not
collect this information. Other information may be collected by BuyBudNow, which
is rather typical of most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our
website could be known at any point in time.
Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means of improving user
experience by allowing us to customize your use of our website. Simple information
is transferred to your computer to allow the content and experience at BuyBudNow
to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on. You should simply make the
adjustments in your web browser to disable these or otherwise receive
notification of cookies so you can take whatever desired action you
so choose. Please understand that refusing cookies may cripple some
of our website features and render some aspects useless to you.
At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are the direct
source providing it. For instance, you may upload ID for age verification purposes,
provide an email address, complete a survey, request SMS, or otherwise. Likewise,
purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit
card information, Paypal addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping,
phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may
lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services
A prime example of limited access to our website is where some BuyBudNow content
may be protected by an email and password. Whether an email and password is
generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected
with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true
since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based,
often paid for. Thus, the email and password must necessarily be tied to
your other account data. Email addresses and passwords, by their very nature,
should be kept private.
Handling of Personal Information
Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us or our
vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose something in a
blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and we have
no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing information with any
other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that
information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that
party has in place.
Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is
simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally to better serve you.
Accordingly, we see no reason to share your personal information to other parties
and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so. Of course, there
are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers,
such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading
in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting
such services “in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such
third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and
they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.
However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall whole.
This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our
overall user base. Further, we may share this information about our
website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for
various purposes, in our sole discretion.
While we are staunch privacy advocates at BuyBudNow, there are times when
even we may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines
face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the
same occur with our BuyBudNow website. Illegal activity or other serious
acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those
cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may simply
be compelled to do so by law. On the other hand, there may be times
when we would need to share your private information in order to protect
our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright
infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary
to share personal information.
