1. INFORMATION WE MAY OBTAIN

Personal Information: If you fill any forms to provide any information to us on the Website, make purchases through the Website, or interact with the Website we may obtain certain kinds of “Personal Information”, including your name, date of birth, age, email address, address, or phone number.

Children’s Information/Age Limitations: The Website is not intended for use by children or persons under twenty-one (21) years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under 21 and no person under 21 may provide any Personal Information or other information to or on the Website. If you are under 21, do not use or provide any information to this Website or on or through any of its features, make any purchases through the Website, use any of the interactive features of this Website, or otherwise provide any information about yourself to us through the Website.  If we learn that we have obtained Personal Information from a person under 21 on or through the Website, we will attempt to delete such Personal Information.

Pre-Orders, Deliveries, and Merchandise Payment: We and our affiliates sell certain merchandise and list cannabis (industrial hemp and marijuana) goods for sale on the Website. Merchandise may be sold throughout the United States, but cannabis goods will only be sold in the State of Oregon. Payments for merchandise will be made to Gnome Grown Merchandising, LLC. We and our affiliates do not collect payment or ask for payment information for purchases of cannabis goods on the Website—cannabis goods may only be reserved for in-store pickup or delivery in the State of Oregon, and payment will only be processed after a purchaser’s age can be verified.

All purchases are made through a third-party ordering platform and a third-party payment processor. It may appear that we are collecting this payment information directly, but the payment information is provided to these third parties, which have embedded their payment portals on the Website.  We may receive only limited Personal Information of yours from that third party to verify or ship purchases or for fraud prevention, such as your billing address and contact information.

We are not responsible for any information provided to or obtained, held, or otherwise used by such third parties. We encourage you to review any third party’s terms of use, privacy policies, agreements, or other similar documents.
