Last Updated on June, 2017

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) covers the website https://www.weedguide.com (the “Site”), our mobile applications, and any services offered by WGE, Inc. (“WGE,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) (collectively, the “Services.”) This Policy describes how we collect, use, store and transfer information gathered through the Site or otherwise from individuals who utilize our Services. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and is part of, our Terms of Use available at https://www.weedguide.com/terms-of-service which govern your access to the Site and your use of the Site and/or Services (as defined below and in the Terms of Use) made available on or through the Site. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meaning assigned to such terms in the Terms of Use

If you have comments, suggestions, questions or concerns regarding this Policy, please contact us at info@weedguide.com.


WGE may collect two types of information from users of our Site and Services: “Personal Information” which is information that can be used to identify you (such as name or e-mail address, etc.) and “Aggregate Information” which is information that cannot be used to identify you (such as frequency of visits to the Site, browser type, etc.)

  1. Personal Information Collected. WGE collects Personal Information you voluntarily provide to use our Site and Services. For example, you may provide us with your email address to receive updates. You can provide us this information by completing an online form posted on the Site.
  2. Aggregate Information Collected. Aggregate Information is information that does not identify you. Aggregate Information may be collected when you visit our Site or interact with our Services independent of any information you voluntarily enter. For example, when you visit our Site, some information is automatically collected. Such information could include your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and operating system, the site from which you linked to us, browser type and language, device identifier numbers, your site activity, and the time and date of your visit. We may collect, use, store, and transfer Aggregate Information without restriction. Below we provide more information about various mechanisms that may be used to collect Aggregate Information
  3. Tracking Technologies. Unique identifiers such as cookies (which are small text files stored locally on your computer that help store user preferences and may be html files, Flash files or other technology), web beacons or clear gifs (which are small pieces of code placed on websites used to collect advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses), tags, scripts or similar technologies (collectively referred to as “Tracking Technologies”) may be used by WGE and our marketing, analytics or other service providers to understand Site usage, help customize our content, offerings or advertisements on the Site, personalize your experience on the Site, analyze trends, and for other purposes related to our management and administration of the Site. Certain browsers have a “do not track” feature that allows you to tell websites or applications that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information. At this time, we do not respond to browser “do not track” signals. To learn more about internet based advertising or to opt-out of internet based advertising, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative website and the Digital Advertising Alliance website. Please know that certain areas and features of our Site may be affected by turning off Tracking Technologies and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar devices might prevent you from accessing some of our content or experiencing certain features as designed.
  4. Log Files. Log data collected on web servers supplies us with Aggregate Information about the number of visits to different pages on our Site. We use such Aggregate Information to improve access to our content based on our visitors’ browsers and operating system types to make our content available to as many users as possible. We do not link the “log data” collected to Personal Information submitted by users in connection with their use of the Site. This Privacy Policy covers the use of Tracking Technologies by WGE and does not cover the use of cookies or other technologies by any advertisers. Some of our third-party service providers may use cookies on our site but we have no access to or control over these cookies.
  5. Analytics Partners. WGE works with analytics partners to improve our insight into your use of the Site and to improve quality of our Site and Service, and the relevance and frequency of the content you receive via the Site (“Analytics Partners”). Our Analytics Partners use a variety of techniques to collect Aggregate Information about your visit to our website, such as session and persistent cookies, web-beacons, and other tracking technologies. These techniques are discussed in the section titled “Tracking Technologies” above. In order to make sure you understand how our Analytics Partners handle your information and how they interact with our Site or Services, please review the information below.

  2. How We May Transfer Your Personal Information. We will not sell or lease your Personal Information to any third party. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Privacy Policy, WGE will only share your Personal Information: (i) as required by law or regulation or as we believe in good faith that disclosure of such personal information is reasonably necessary to: (1) satisfy any applicable law or regulation, (2) to respond to claims and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us, (3) to protect and defend our rights or property, and/or the rights or property of our customers, or third parties, as permitted by law, (4) to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (5) to enforce our Terms of Use; and/or (ii) with our service providers that provide certain services to maintain and operate the Site and/or Services and those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver their service(s); and/or (iii) with your permission. As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the collected Personal Information.


We have implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to deter unauthorized access to and use, destruction of, modification of, or disclosure of personally identifiable information we collect via the Site. Regardless of the precautions taken by us or by you, no data transmitted over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you provide all Personal Information via the Site or Services at your own risk.


You may be presented with an option on our Site to receive certain information and/or marketing offers directly from third parties or to have us send certain information to third parties or give them access to it. If you choose to do so, your Personal Information and other information may be disclosed to such third parties and all information you disclose will be subject to the third-party privacy policies and practices of such third parties. In addition, third parties may store, collect or otherwise have access to your information when you interact with their Tracking Technologies, content, tools, apps or ads on our Site or link to them from our Site or through our Service. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of such third parties and, therefore, you should review such third-party privacy policies and practices of such third parties prior to requesting information from or otherwise interacting with them.


Our Site may contain links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third-party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit. Please be aware that the terms of our Privacy Policy do not apply to these third-party websites.


This Site is not intended for, or designed to attract, individuals under the age of 21 and as such, we do not intentionally gather information from individuals who are under the age of 21. Upon notification that an individual under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our records.


You should be aware that the United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations. Because WGE and its servers are located in the United States and our services are directed towards the United States market, our Privacy Policy has been prepared to comply with applicable United States regulations. By accessing and/or using the Site and/or Services and providing Personal Information to us via the Site, you consent to the processing of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy and you agree to the level of privacy protection set out in this Privacy Policy.


Each time you use the Site, the current version of this Privacy Policy will apply.

You can always refuse to accept any changes to our privacy policy by terminating your use of the Site and/or Services. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you. Continuation of your use of the Site and/or Services shall be considered acceptance of the change in the Privacy Policy.
