Product Usage Data

We do not collect any user data without the explicit consent of the user.  We may, as described below, collect information about a user’s experiences and preferences related to the consumption of marijuana or marijuana products.  As stated in the Terms of Service, as it pertains to marijuana, Jointly is only for residents of states and localities with laws regulating the medical or recreational use of marijuana.  Marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act, and, therefore, the possession, cultivation and distribution thereof, or conspiring with or assisting others to do the same, is federally illegal and can result in significant criminal and civil penalties.  Additionally, medical use is not recognized as a valid defense under federal laws regulating marijuana, and interstate transportation of marijuana is a federal offense.  ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES OR BUSINESS RELATED TO MARIJUANA IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.  We may also collect information about a user’s experiences and preferences related to the consumption of hemp or hemp products.

You may optionally share data regarding your usage of a variety of such products, such as which products you used, how effective those products were, how hydrated you were when using a product, how much you slept the night before using a product; how long since your last use of that or a similar product, the setting in which you used a product, whether you consumed any alcohol or other drugs at the same time as you were using a product (all things that are suspected of being correlated with a more effective product experience) (“Product Usage Data”). We use this Product Usage Data to help improve our Site and Services, and to create aggregate consumer information, which is described in more detail below. We only collect Product Usage Data with your consent, and we take appropriate measures to protect it. You can opt out at any time, however, this may limit your access to certain Services.

As stated in the Terms of Service, Jointly’s collection and utilization of such Product Usage Data, including any ratings or reviews, does not constitute or imply Jointly’s endorsement, recommendation, or favoring of any product, whether or not the product is included on the Site.

Who Do We Provide Your Information to?

Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose your personal information to any companies not part of Jointly or its parent, subsidiaries or related entities.  In no event will we ever sell or rent any identifying personal information, except in the form of aggregate consumer information, as described below. We may, however, share your personal information as follows:

  • We may share personal information for legal, protection, and safety purposes.
  • We may share information to comply with laws or as permitted by laws.
  • We may share information to respond to lawful requests and legal processes.
  • We may share information with other companies and brands owned or controlled by Jointly, including our subsidiaries.
  • We may share information to protect the rights and property of Jointly, our agents, customers, and others.  This includes enforcing our agreements, policies, and Terms of Service.
  • We may share information in an emergency.  This includes protecting the safety of our employees and agents, our customers, or any person.
  • We may share your personal information with vendors, service providers, contractors and agents in connection with the performance of services on our behalf.  These service providers are prohibited from using your information except as needed to perform our work or as required by law.
  • We may share personal information when we do a business deal, or negotiate a business deal, involving the sale or transfer of all or a part of our business or assets.  These deals can include any merger, financing, acquisition, or bankruptcy transaction or proceeding.

We may also share your personal information with our employees, contractors, consultants, affiliates and other parties who require such information to assist us with managing our relationship with you, including trusted third parties that provide services to us or on our behalf.  For example, we may share your personal information from time to time with third-party information technology, data processing, and call center service providers so that we may operate our business.

Finally, we may also sell, rent, or share aggregate consumer information (i.e., anonymized summary data) with others for their own uses.  Specifically, if you register to use our Mobile App and create a User Account, we may sell, rent or share certain aggregate consumer information that we compile using personal information and Product Usage Data collected about you and other users.  This aggregate consumer information will never include your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address.  We may sell, rent or share this aggregate consumer information with our partners and other companies for their own marketing, product development, research, or other uses.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information outside of the situations detailed above, unless you consent otherwise.

Security and Protection of Your Personal Data

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use reasonable electronic, personnel and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse.  However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks.  We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information.  We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.

Whenever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way.  We will not ask you to provide payment card information (such as credit card number, expiration date, CVV, and billing address) through the Site.  However, if a third-party service you have found through the Site collects such payment card information or any other sensitive information from you, you should ensure that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way.  You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

We are dedicated to protecting all personal information to the greatest extent possible.  However, if you create a User Account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information by keeping your password confidential.  You should change your password immediately if you believe someone has gained unauthorized access to it or your User Account.  If you learn of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information that is in our custody, you should notify us immediately.

If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the updated Privacy Policy on the Site.  We may also send emails to any user who has created a User Account containing a link to the revised Privacy Policy.
