This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for ethoscannabis.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or another direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We may ask you for certain personal information in order for you to access the Services, or as part of your use of the services. 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. If you visit one of our retail locations or request product delivery, we may also collect personal information from your government identification card when you provide it to us, including your name, address, picture, driver’s license or other government identification card number, and any other information on your government identification card, as well as video, audio, and images that we capture from our security cameras inside and around our retail locations. If you choose to register on our website or via a mobile application, or otherwise create a member account, you may be required to provide certain personal information. If you do not provide the requested personal information, you may not be able to access or use the features of the Services where such personal information is requested.
We may use your personal information for a variety of purposes, including to identify you; verify your age; process payments for you; identify your location; facilitate transactions and/or communications, including marketing communications and Services-related communications with you; register you for Ethos or its affiliates services, such as a website, mobile application, delivery, or rewards account; maintain current information about your Services usage and accounts; track your accumulation of redeemable rewards based on your product purchase history and Services usage; protect our users, ourselves, our Services, and our affiliates from fraud, theft, hacking, phishing and other unlawful activities; analyze website traffic; diagnose technical problems in our Services; comply with laws and Ethos’ policies; conduct website and activity tracking, including Services optimization and personalization; and, generate and study analytics related to your usage of our Services.
Many jurisdictions require careful verification of identity before allowing you to purchase cannabis products. When you use our Services at a physical location, your government-issued identification card will be physically examined and electronically scanned in order to verify your age and your identification’s validity. Once your data has been scanned, your name, address, identification number, photo, and other data may be retained by Ethos, or its affiliates, for the purpose of analyzing your use of our 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 Ethos or affiliated 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 Ethos or its affiliates and accessed by and supplied to their employees, government agencies, and others at their 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 can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Google Chrome) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
If you disable cookies, it may turn off some of the features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
Ethos and its affiliates intend only persons who are 21 years or older to use the Services. Any use of the Services by persons under the age of 21 is strictly prohibited.
Our Services, including our website, are intended for a mature audience. We do not direct any of our content at children. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a website user is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account. Do not supply to us or disclose on the Services any personal information of any person under 13 years of age, as we do not intend to collect information from anyone under 13 or invite them to participate in the Services.
Our Site may contain links to sites of third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for these sites. These sites may have their own privacy policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites that have a link to our Site, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.

You may opt-out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Ethos’ Services have reasonable security measures in place designed to prevent accidental loss of your personal information and from unauthorized access, use alteration, or disclosure of the information that we obtain from you. Such measures include, but are not limited to, access controls, monitoring, and the utilization of encryption to securely transmit sensitive information. Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out personal information online or at any store, there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information.
Ethos strives to protect your personal information and privacy, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose. By using the Services, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Services and that any personal information, general information, or other data or information received from you to us is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
If any part of this Policy is found by a court to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of the Policy will remain in effect.
