Such personal information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, date of birth, age, gender, state of residence, e-mail address, telephone number, financial data (which may include your credit card or debit card number), and other information which identifies you.

IP Address and Telemetry Data
When you visit us, our Internet servers automatically collect data about your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), which is the network address of your computer, phone, or other computing device. When you visit our Site, we may also collect “click stream” or “telemetry” data, which is data about your web browser, and the web server and content you are trying to access. For example, our Site may record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages you visit on this Site; the website you visit after leaving our Site; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Site or a referral website; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. This information can be combined with information you have provided to us by registering as an account, for example, which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits. We may use telemetry data for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers, for traffic analysis or e-commerce analysis of our Site, to help secure our systems, to customize our Services for you, or to determine which features of our Site are most or least effective or useful to you. Such information may also be used to gather demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may also aggregate user information in a non-personally identifiable manner to share with advertisers, to enhance the Services, or for general business purposes.
When visiting our Site, we may also use “Clear GIFs” (aka “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies in our Site and/or in our communications with you. A Clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which helps us to verify an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message. Clear GIFs allow us to know whether you have viewed a web page prior to visiting our Site and may enable us to relate such information to other information, including your Personal Information. We use information provided from Clear GIFs and similar technologies to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make our Services better for our Users.
We collect your location information and we may use geolocation-based services in order to verify your location. For instance, knowing your location may be necessary to allow you full access to our mobile applications or certain aspects of the Services. Furthermore, for compliance reasons, some of the Services may be restricted depending on where you are located. Location information helps us connect you with a licensed retailer that services your delivery area, send you relevant content based on your location, and optimize or improve our products and services. Location data may also be collected as demographic information.

Identity Verification, Improvement of Services and Cannabis Limit Enforcement
Many jurisdictions require careful verification of identity before allowing you to purchase cannabis products. When you use our Services at a physical location or in connection with delivery, your government-issued identification card will be physically examined and electronically scanned in order to verify your age and your identification’s validity. Your scanned identification data may be collected, transmitted to, stored at, and analyzed by a third party outside of dosist’s control, and you acknowledge that we may not be able to control any unauthorized disclosure or use by such third party of your data.
Once your data has been scanned, your name, address, identification number, photo, and other data may be retained by dosist for the purpose of analyzing your use of dosist’s Services, enforcing cannabis purchasing limits as required by some jurisdictions, creating an electronic profile about you in order to make future verifications of your identity easier, and to help us customize Services and experiences for you.
Photographic and audiovisual recordings of you inside and around dosist retail stores and delivery vehicles will be used for the purpose of maintaining physical security, identifying you, and complying with laws that require video surveillance.
Audiovisual footage captured in stores, and any photo of yourself that you supply, may also be used to help identify you, and customize your experience as you use our Services.
You acknowledge that audiovisual and photographic recordings of you may be stored by dosist and accessed by and supplied to dosist employees, government agencies, and others at dosist’s sole discretion at any time, for any purpose, with or without a legal order or subpoena, and without notice or financial compensation to you.
You permit dosist to collect and use your debit, credit card, or other financial data you provide (“Payment Data”) in order to facilitate payments for dosist Services and products at your request. In order to facilitate payments, your Payment Data may be transmitted to, stored at, and used by third parties for the purposes of processing your payment, analyzing your Payment Data for signs of fraud or criminal activity, and other functions required of third-party payment processors. While dosist strives to only hire reliable third parties, you agree that dosist cannot be held liable for how your Payment Data is used or retained or protected while it is in transit to, stored at, or used by third parties that process payments for you.
If you ask us to delete your data, note that dosist cannot delete data stored at third-party payment processors that must retain Payment Data in order to meet their own compliance requirements. If you have questions about the use of your Payment Data, please contact our payment processors directly – send an email to email@example.com for the most current list of dosist payment processors.
We may use web cookies in order to maintain your web browser’s website session, track your use of our website, and to store your preferences and selections. Third-party cookies from Google and other companies are also used to display promotions and advertisements relevant to you, track your website usage, and to generate website usage analytics.
We collect your IP Address, location data advertised by web browsers and mobile devices, your physical address if you provide it to us, and similar location data to identify your location in order to provide location-based services, such as showing you Services or products available in your area, customizing in-store experiences, delivering products to you at your request, or analyzing your use of our Services. You understand that some of our Services require knowing your location in order to function properly, so if you disable location features of your computer, phone, or browser, some of our Services may become unavailable to you.
Content You Submit
dosist does not own content you write or make. However, if you submit content, pictures, photos, videos, comments, or messages (“User Content”) through dosist’s Services, including our Site, you grant dosist the perpetual, irrevocable, and unrestricted right to use, display, perform, edit, transfer, sell, and publish User Content anywhere worldwide on any medium for dosist’s marketing purposes without notice or compensation to you.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may provide your information, including your personal information, to our subsidiaries, parents, affiliated companies, or subcontractors, so such parties can, among other things (a) perform services and/or process such information on our behalf, (b) use the information to offer you greater functionality and enhanced Services or related product and service opportunities, and (c) communicate these opportunities to you. When we do this, the recipients of your information are bound by contracts with us to maintain the privacy of your information.

We may share non-personally identifiable User data, such as aggregated gender, age, geographic, and usage data (without the inclusion of your name or other identifying information) to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes.
We may share location-based information with third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes if you have allowed location-based services on your computing device, and for enabling location-based Services such as cannabis product delivery to you.
To Facilitate Delivery
In order to facilitate deliveries, we share information with our business partners, including licensed retailers and their drivers. When you send an order to the retailer through dosist, the retailer receives information required to complete your order, such as your first name, delivery address, order details, birthdate, and a picture of your face taken from your government-issued ID. The retailer connects you with a driver who fulfills your order, and the driver receives this information to complete the delivery. The driver never sees a full upload of your ID. When the driver arrives with your order, they will check your ID in person to verify your identity as required by law.
To Facilitate Shipping
dosist affiliated entities may use a third-party logistics provider (“3PL”) in order to facilitate shipping of hemp-derived CBD products. When you order from such dosist affiliate, the 3PL receives your name, shipping address, and order details so that they can send your items to the right place.
