SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

In the future, Stoned Kitty may begin offering a subscription services, but it is not doing so at the time of this Privacy Policy writing.




DATA INFORMATION


In this Privacy Policy, we use the word “Data” to describe all the information we collect that relates to you and your use of our Services. “Data” is broken into different categories, which are defined in the Data section of this Privacy Policy. We may refer to the different categories separately, but when we use the word “Data,” we mean all the different categories described in this Privacy Policy. The term “Data” does not apply to de-identified and aggregated data that may be derived from Data, such as traffic patterns, search activity, and other information that cannot be reasonably connected with any individual (“De-identified Data”). We may use De-identified Data for our own purposes in any manner and without attribution or compensation to any person.

At this time, Stoned Kitty Catnip does not implement any collective analytics. Please note that our affiliates used on this site MAY collect your information should you visit their page from this site. Therefore, we recommend that you seek to learn more about their Privacy Policies: Facebook | Instagram | TikTok | Twitter. You may find their Privacy Policy Information on their home websites.




DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES


Stoned Kitty Catnip offers premium catnip, catnip goods (as they become available – such as catnip bags or catnip filled toys) and other products including at this current time t-shirts and sweatshirts and coffee mugs + cups. In this Privacy policy, all the functions made available by our tools, including the other services and professional services we provide directly, are included in the term “Services.” The term “Services” also includes any of Stoned Kitty’s websites, mobile applications, tools, software, personalized content, and other applications, as well as any other services and tools now known or later developed by Stoned Kitty Catnip. These actions are run by several companies we use: Square | Wix payment processing | Wix hosting | and PayPal. Please visit their Privacy Policies to learn more about how they use their information for their payment processes.

Stoned Kitty Catnip does not store any information used in processing/purchasing and once payments are completed all information leaves our databases and we do NOT have access to any of your information. See more about liabilities of Stoned Kitty Catnip through web usage below in other subsections regarding DATA RETENTION or PAYMENT DATA.




LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING


Many jurisdictions require that we disclose to you the lawful basis for our processing of your Data. We do that in Section 4 and throughout this Privacy Policy. In general, our lawful basis for processing your Data is based on your specific consent or your contract with us.

By accessing or using any of the Services or by otherwise interacting with us online, you consent to our use of your Data as described in this Privacy Policy. If our processing of your Data is based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, and we will cease collecting your Data. However, in some cases, this may result in your inability to receive partial or full access to the Services, purchase catnip or any of our other goods, and your withdrawal of consent does not limit our ability to use the Data that has been aggregated and anonymized for use by us in connection with our legitimate business efforts in the future. In addition, your withdrawal of consent does not prevent us from retaining and processing Data if we are required to do so by applicable law or in order to preserve legal claims. It also doesn’t prevent us from processing Data that has been gathered pursuant to a different lawful basis. For example, if you give your consent for us to process your Data, but we are also required by law to keep your Data, that separate “lawful basis” will still apply, even if you withdraw your consent.

When you enter into an agreement with us, either by accessing the Services, by executing an agreement in hard copy or by clicking “I Accept” or similar language online, we will process your Data for the purposes of fulfilling the terms of our contract with you. This may include purchasing catnip or other products through our Wix hosted SHOP PAGE for Goods or Catnip or via PayPal and Square processing of credit card use - please refer to Paypal + Squares Privacy Policies for their information. In the case previously stated, our processing of your Data is based on the contract, so your withdrawal of consent will only be effective after the purposes for processing that Data have been fulfilled and after we no longer have a legal obligation to keep that Data.

In all cases, we will comply with applicable law and we will cease processing your Data after the legal right, obligation, or other lawful basis expires.




INTENDED USERS + COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) 2021


The Services are directed solely to persons 18 years of age or older or of children under 18 who are supervised by a parent, guardian, or other caregiver. Other than for Data collected for the specific purpose of providing the Services to users, we do not knowingly collect Data from users who are under 13. If we become aware that we have gathered Data from a person under 13, except to provide the Services to such person, then we will attempt to delete such Data as soon as possible, subject to our obligations under applicable law. If you believe that we have gathered Data from a person under 13 in contravention of this policy, please contact us at info@stonedkitty.com.

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We also do not sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age under any circumstance. Stoned Kitty Catnip does not specifically market to children under 13 as stated above.

For more information, please direct your questions to us at info@stonedkitty.com or give us a direct call at (734) 508-2726.

PRIVACY FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS


California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about businesses’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt-out of such information-sharing. If you wish to opt-out of our sharing of your information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes offline, please inform us by writing us at info@stonedkitty.com. Please note at this time we do not sell or provide any information of our users to any third-party marketing parties.

California has also adopted the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), which will take effect at the beginning of 2020. Stoned Kitty Catnip complies with the requirements of the CCPA to the extent they apply to Stoned Kitty or Stonedkitty.com.

If you are a California resident and Stoned Kitty qualifies as a “business” under the terms of that law, you will have the following rights:

  • You have the right to request that we disclose the categories and the specific items of Data about you that we collect, use, disclose, and/or sell and that Data about you that we have collected, used, disclosed, and/or sold during the 12 months prior to your request.
  • You also have the right to have the Data we collect about you deleted. Your rights to have Data deleted are subject to several exceptions, specifically the Data that is necessary for us to:
  • complete your transaction;
  • provide you a good or service;
  • perform a contract between us and you;
  • protect your security and prosecute those responsible for breaching it;
  • fix our system in the case of a bug;
  • protect the free speech rights of you or other users;
  • comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et seq.);
  • engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interests that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws;
  • comply with a legal obligation; or
  • make other internal and lawful uses of the information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
  • To make any request under the CCPA, you must email us at info@stonedkitty.com You will be asked to give us your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and any other information we request to reasonably verify your identity. We will respond to your request within 10 days after receipt of your request, and we will then take action to verify your identity and fulfill your request, as required by the CCPA.
  • We will provide you with a CSV copy of your stored data within 45 days of your request, assuming we are able to verify your identity in that period and so long as you provide a correct email address for successful correspondence.
  • You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any privacy rights conferred by the CCPA, which means that we will not take any action to hurt or punish you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
  • You may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf by writing us at info@stonedkitty.com. Upon receipt of your request, we will provide you with the information you will need to designate that agent.

Note that we are not allowed by law to at any time disclose your Social Security number, driver’s license number, or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, or any account password or security questions or answers. We do not collect any of this information on our website: stonedkitty.com. The only way we could even gather that information from a user would be if said user specifically emails us that information for unknown purposes.

Stoned Kitty Catnip will never actively engage in soliciting nor asking for that information from any of our users for any purpose, even in checkout purposes. There is no reason why any Stoned Kitty Catnip employee or owner would need to know your Driver’s license, social security number, or other government-issued information. Be aware that if you are asked for that information from someone posing as Stoned Kitty Catnip we are NOT liable for any fraudulent activity as a result of you giving them that information as we will NEVER ask for that information.

We have listed the specific and general categories of information we have collected, disclosed, or sold in the last 12 months in the section above entitled “Data We Collect and How We Use It.” That section also lists the specific and general categories of Data we have disclosed to third parties for our business purposes. We do not sell your Data. However, we do disclose certain categories of Data to the merchants whose businesses you visit using the Services, all as described in the section entitled “Data We Collect and How We Use It” above.




CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT


CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. According to CalOPPA, Stoned Kitty Catnip agrees to the following:

- Users can visit this site anonymously

- Once this privacy policy is created, Stoned Kitty Catnip will add a link to it on the HOME page located on the footer of the entire website (accessible on every page of the website)

- Stoned Kitty Catnip's Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on this page (PRIVACY POLICY). The link to our Privacy Policy page can be found on every page on mobile site as well as desktop site.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes: On Stoned Kitty Catnip's Privacy Policy Page - this page (PRIVACY POLICY)

Users are able to change their personal information:

By emailing us at info@stonedkitty.com or by calling us at (734) 508-2726.




SPECIFIC INTERACTIONS


Current and Potential Employees

Stoned Kitty does not use the services of third parties to help us to recruit new employees and independent contractors and to manage our interactions with current employees and independent contractors. We may do so in the future, but not at the time of this Privacy Policy underwriting.

Employees of Business Partners

We do business with (and aim to do business with) many companies whose employees give us their contact information for communication regarding the services we render or receive from those businesses. We never sell that information and only use it for purposes of communicating with those companies. We may use that information for our own internal purposes to help us improve our business relations processes and practices. At this time we are not actively engaging with any other companies or their employees.

Service Providers

In our continuing efforts to provide our Services in a manner that is convenient and helpful to a growing number of customers, we may sometimes use the services of service providers to help us manage the Data we process. Whenever we do so, we take commercially reasonable steps to ensure that our service providers do not use the Data for any purposes other than the services they are providing to us.

At this time, Stoned Kitty Catnip is not involved in any of these situations.

  7. Business Transitions. In the event that we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, liquidation or sale of all or a portion of our assets, the information we have about you will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. We reserve the right to transfer that information in connection with such transactions without notice to you. We will not be required to obtain your consent for such a transfer.

PRIVACY FOR EU RESIDENTS


The General Data Protection Regulation made effective in Europe on May 25, 2018 (“GDPR”) requires that we clearly describe to data subjects the data we collect and how we use that data.
