Providing us with PII about yourself is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some of the Site’s features.
We actively and passively gather, analyze and/or store PII and other information generally by way of two different sources: (1) the PII voluntarily submitted by visitors when using or registering to use or receive our services or offers; and (2) by tracking and analyzing online and mobile data and activity through mechanisms that identify site usage, user location, device type, browser types, IP addresses, and other data. We do not collect PII through advertisements on our Site, and the PII we collect is not shared with third parties except as set forth herein. We will make reasonable efforts to destroy, erase or make anonymous any PII that is no longer required to fulfill the original purpose for which it was originally collected.
Strain Profile Information & Transaction History
We are unable to access or view any documents that you have loaded into your “time capsule” on the Site. We are also unable to access or view any invoices that you receive from Canopyright or have been sent by Canopyright on your behalf. We do not track this information, or any metrics based on this information, which we deem to be your confidential property. We do, however, track invoice processing fees that may be payable to us.
When your computer or mobile device contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit this Site, or view an HTML email), our web servers automatically collect usage information. Such usage information includes information about how our visitors use and navigate our Site. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, location, device type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Site, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, email, advertising or promotional announcement or similar service. This information is used by Canopyright for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Site.
Use of IP Address
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer, device or network when you are linked to the Internet. When you request pages from this Site, our servers log your IP address. We may use IP address for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Site. We may associate your IP address with the PII you provide.
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you.
Canopyright secures the PII you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. No website, Internet transmission, computer system or wireless connection is completely secure, however. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of the Site is at your own risk. Whenever you provide personal information, we will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information by establishing a secure connection with your web browser. Canopyright uses an industry standard security protocol for encrypting sensitive information. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Unfortunately, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed 100% secure. We cannot and do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or through Canopyright, and you do so at your own risk.
We are not in the business of selling your information, and we do not sell, rent or lease our customer lists or your strain information to third parties. We consider your information to be an important part of our relationship with you, and will use your PII solely to provide our services and otherwise as described in this policy.
We may share your information with third parties under the following circumstances:
Third parties providing services on our behalf and/or through our services: We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include: (a) content provision, (b) product customization, (c) marketing and promotional material distribution, (d) website evaluation, (e) data collection, storage, management, analysis and, where applicable, cleansing, and (f) any other services designed to assist us in maximizing our business potential. Additionally, certain third parties engage us to facilitate their own functionality and operation. All of such third parties may have access to this Site’s user information, including PII, to the extent it is needed to perform their specific duties and functions.
Legal Requirements and Protection of Rights: We may release information about our users, including PII, without notice when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Site and applicable laws. We may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Canopyright or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, employees, customers, or others.
Aggregate Information: We may disclose non-identifying, aggregated user statistics to third parties for a variety of purposes, including describing our services to prospective partners and other third parties. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited this Site during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through this Site.
Consent to Processing
By using our Site, participating in any of our services and/or providing us with your information, you consent and agree to the collection, transfer, storage and processing of your information to and in the United States. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of this Site may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children’s use of online activities regularly. The Site supports and complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and other applicable laws. The Site is not aimed at nor intended for persons under the age of 21. If you are under the age of 21, please do not use the Site. If we discover that a person under the age of 18 has provided us with any PII, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such person’s PII from its system.
You can visit the Site without providing any PII. If you choose not to provide any PII (or only provide certain requested PII), you may not be able to use certain services.
Users of our Site and services are required to inform us about any change concerning their data, in particular about changes of email address. We are not liable for the consequences resulting from providing mistaken data.
You can access, correct and update certain personal information that you have provided to us, if any, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of the original information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons. Information that is posted to the blockchain may not be deleted.
You will have an opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving promotional material from this Site by clicking on an “unsubscribe” hyperlink contained in promotional emails we send you. Additionally, you may email email@example.com. Because customer lists often are prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. Please be aware that we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to meet your request.
