We collect a range of information from users who visit our website. What information we collect and how we use it is described in detail below. In accordance with GDPR, we have an appointed a Data Controller who is responsible for your Data and our GDPR compliance.
If you would like any further information about this Policy Statement or if you have any questions about Cannabliss© Dispensary UK and how we use your data, please contact our Data Controller at email@example.com.
We are Cannabliss Ltd; a limited company registered in England and Wales in 2018. The company registered officer address is:
15 Cannon Street
Company Number: 10231749
VAT Number: 360 1916 17
We are a privately owned, independant Medical Cannabis company offering an online dispensary service. Our Services are offered and provided for through our website www.cannabliss.co.uk.
Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.
We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
We also collect some information automatically:
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your Membership Account through another service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service (like Facebook or Twitter) through our Publicize feature, we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.
We may also get information, such as a mailing address, from third party services about individuals who are not yet our users (…but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes like postcards and other mailers advertising our services
We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under the applicable terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account and or membership — for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for a paid plan; or
(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your information — for example, to provide and update our Services; to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better user experience; to safeguard our Services; to communicate with you; to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising; and to understand our user retention and attrition; to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services; and to personalize your experience; or
We do not share any of our customer information with any commercial their parties other than for the purpose set out I this policy.
We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly.
That means, of course, that information like your public profile, posts, other content that you make public on your website, and your “Likes” and comments on other websites, are all available to others–and we hope you get a lot of views!
For example, the photo that you upload to your public profile, or a default image if you haven’t uploaded one, is your Globally Recognized Avatar, or Gravatar — get it? :). Your Gravatar, along with other public profile information, will display with the comments and “Likes” that you make on other users’ websites while logged in to your WordPress.com account. Your Gravatar + public profile information may also display with your comments, “Likes,” and other interactions on websites that use our Gravatar service, if the email address associated with your account with us is the same as the email address that you use on the other website.
Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.
Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it — which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information — and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to our website, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 90 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyse traffic to our website and investigate issues if something goes wrong.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect your personal information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
We use a number of different processes and procedures to help protect the information we store but there is only so much we can do. To enhance the security of your account, where available we encourage you to enable our advanced security settings, like Two Step Authentication.
Our website uses the latest internet protocol known as HTTPS. What this means its that any information you upload through our website, such as personal information or credit card details, is encrpyted so no one can access it. We use a very high level of encryption to ensure the best possible security for your data.
For hosting our websites, we use a company based in Switzerland called Hostpoint. Switzerland is renowned for its security and privacy laws under which Hospotin is Governed. The data centres where our servers are located are ISO 20176 accredited and have been approved for Swiss Banking use. With 24 hour security and a number of fire a power protection systems, you can rest assured your data is safe.
Most people have heard of hacking but what actually does it mean? Well, a website can be hacked in a number of ways but they are all none-physical ie; someone accesses the restricted data found on our server by ‘hacking’ through our password protection system or locating flaws in our security process. This can be down to errors in coding or other software related problems. The long and short of it is simple; all websites are capable of being hacked if left unchecked. Even large Government websites and Military installations have been the victims of hacking.
So,how do we prevent or mitigate the risks of hacking? Well, its all down to processes. By having a very robust set of policies and procedures in place we can mitigate the risk of hacking by making it extremely difficult and time consuming for hackers to do which means they are less likely to target us. In addition to us using our own processes and security software, our hosting provider themselves have a team of security experts that constantly monitor their Data centres for suspicious activity. They are able to spot and put down any attacks quickly and effectively and this is why they are trusted by some of Switzerlands largest companies. It is for this reason we chose to pay a bit more for our hosting!
In order to prevent loss of your date through hacking or loss of services, we regularly make a number of our own encrypted backups of our websites data. These backups are stored in different, undisclosed locations. These servers where we store our backups are not publicly accessible and the companies providing these services are insured to protect against lost of data
Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
At Cannabliss Dispensary we also make regular use of Virtual Private Networks (VPN). All of our staff and all our our own computer networks ONLY access the internet through a VPN service based in Switzerland. This service provides the highest level of security for information transmitted over the internet by encrypting all data BEFORE it has even left the device.
You have several choices available when it comes to your personal information. You can:
As we are Governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data?
All the automated decision making relating to the processing and or profiling of user data is used to safeguard the website from malicious attack. No such information is gathered for any other purpose at this time
