PRIVACY POLICY

20. User Agreement. This Site is owned and operated by The Calico Group, Inc, on its own behalf or in combination with one or more of its affiliates (collectively referred to herein, solely for ease of reference, as “CALICO”, “us” or “we”). This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to your use of the CALICO website located at www.thecalicogroup.com and any other online and mobile websites, blogs and interactive applications operated by CALICO (unless a different policy is provided on a particular site, application or service, in which case such different policy shall govern and control). This Privacy Policy discloses what type of information is collected, the methods used to collect it, how CALICO utilizes the information to better serve all interested parties and the choices you have about the way your information is collected and used. For some states, special rules may apply. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Your use of the Site indicates that you have read, accepted and unconditionally agreed to the CALICO privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy and any other applicable terms. The Terms of Use for this Site, located at https://www.thecalicogroup.com, are incorporated herein by this reference. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, personally identifiable information (“PII”) is personal information about an individual, such as a first and last name, phone number, email address or other individually identifiable information within the meaning of the Federal Trade Commission’s Online Privacy Protection Rule found at 16 CFR 312.2. Every user hereby agrees that all information you provide, including but not limited to age, shall be truthful and correct.
21. Information We Collect. CALICO strives to provide our visitors with information relevant to their particular desires, needs and/or interests. The information we gather helps us to better serve our purpose. We may ask you to provide us with demographic information, information regarding your interests or other PII. 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. CALICO actively and passively gathers, analyzes and/or stores PII and other information generally by way of a few different sources: (1) the PII voluntarily submitted by visitors when using or registering to use or receive our products, services or offers, or when submitted to us via our contact form; 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.
22. Usage Information. 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 to analyze and improve this Site and to provide you with a more fulfilling and relevant experience.
23. Browser Cookies. Like many websites, we may use browser “cookies.” Cookies are a website’s way of remembering who you are. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer’s hard drive or stored temporarily in your computer’s memory. There are two kinds of cookies: those that are “session” oriented and those that are “persistent.” Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies retain information for later use tomorrow, next week, next month, or whenever they are set to expire. We use cookies to help us to identify account holders and to optimize their experience on our Site. Also, we will use cookies to monitor and maintain information about your use of this Site. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. You can delete cookies manually or set your browser to automatically delete cookies on a predetermined schedule. For example, in the Internet Explorer menu bar, select: Tools > Internet Options > Browsing History > Delete to view manual and automatic options. If you decline to accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of this Site.
24. Use of IP Addresses. 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.
25. Sensitive Information. CALICO uses modern technological efforts to ensure the safety of your sensitive information. No website, Internet transmission, computer system or wireless connection is completely secure. CALICO 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 give CALICO sensitive or confidential information, CALICO will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information by establishing a secure connection with your web browser. CALICO uses an industry standard security protocol for encrypting sensitive information. 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 CALICO, and you do so at your own risk.
26. CALICO may contain links to, or advertisements about, non-CALICO websites. Other sites may also reference, advertise, or link to CALICO Sites. CALICO does not endorse or sponsor other websites, is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of non-CALICO sites, expressly disclaims any statements or assertions made on such websites, and denies all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, such other websites and advertisements. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy do not apply to information gathered through other websites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave this Site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that you visit.
27. Consent to Processing. By using our Site, participating in any of our services, purchasing our products, 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.
28. Children. 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 children under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not use the Site. If CALICO discovers that a person under the age of 18 has provided CALICO with any PII, CALICO will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such person’s PII from its system.
29. Sharing Information. CALICO does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. If you opt in to receive communications from a third party, such as a dispensary, your information will be subject to the third party’s privacy policy and not this Privacy Policy. Therefore, if you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly. In addition, CALICO may share your PII with third parties under the following circumstances:
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf: We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include: (a) content providers; (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. These third parties may have access to this Site’s user information, including PII, to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions.

CALICO Security: We may release information about our users, including PII, 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 CALICO, or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, 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. An example of such non-personal information includes the number of users who visited this Site during a specific time period.

30. Corporate Change. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose, share and/or otherwise transfer user information, including without limitation PII, in connection with a corporate merger, acquisition, consolidation, the sale of a portion of our business or the sale of substantially all of CALICO’s assets, or other fundamental corporate change, whatever form it may take. You will be notified via email or prominent notice on our Site prior to a change of ownership or control of your personal information, if your personal information will be used contrary to this policy. For clarification and the removal of doubt, CALICO specifically reserves the right to transfer or share a copy of PII collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy from this Site, off-line or otherwise, to the buyer of that portion of its business relating to that information.
31. Third-Party Advertisements. We may from time to time use various outside ad-serving or other companies to serve advertisements and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our Site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third-party web beacon to collect this information.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

41. CALICO is committed to working with you in the event of a dispute. If you have a problem or dispute, you must first notify CALICO and give CALICO an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute amicably. This includes you first sending a written description of your problem or dispute using the following:

Email Address:

[email protected]

Mailing Address:

The Calico Group
2801 Via Fortuna
Suite 675
Austin, Texas
USA

You agree to negotiate with CALICO in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after CALICO’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.

ARBITRATION: You agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of these Terms of Use, shall be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that you have in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate CALICO’s or any third party’s intellectual property rights, in which case you acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy at law and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by CALICO and/or the applicable third party(ies). You and we acknowledge that the Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under the Agreement (despite any other choice of law provision).

Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in the State of Nevada. For claims of less than $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for claims over $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879 (within the USA). Upon your filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims that total less than $75,000 USD. For claims that total more than $75,000 USD, the payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we agree to pay our own other fees, costs, and expenses, including those for any attorneys, experts, and witnesses. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 USD as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith with CALICO as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Except for claims determined to be frivolous, CALICO agrees not to seek an award of attorneys’ fees in arbitration even if an award is otherwise available under applicable law. As a limited exception to the agreement to arbitrate, you and we agree that you may take claims to small claims court, if your claims qualify for hearing by such court.

YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION, THEN NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU CONTACTED CALICO VIA ITS SITE CONTACT PAGE OR VIA EMAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME, AS RECORDED BY CALICO’S SYSTEMS THAT TRACK CONTACTS, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS PART OF THE AGREEMENT BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO [email protected] Please provide your full name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), and email address to which the opt-out applies. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. Any opt-out received after the thirty (30) day time period will not be valid, and you must pursue your claim via arbitration pursuant to these Terms of Use. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms of Use will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with CALICO.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SITE, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable, then any putative class action may only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. WE BOTH AGREE THAT, WHETHER ANY CLAIM IS IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND CALICO BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL INVOLVING ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES BETWEEN US.

If this arbitration provision is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in Arizona. You hereby accept the exclusive jurisdiction of such court for this purpose.

In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Site or Terms of Use, be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
