STONED KITTY PRIVACY + LEGAL

Effective Date:  January 1, 2020

Thank you for doing business with Stoned Kitty Catnip. (“Stoned Kitty,” “Company,” “Stoned Kitty Catnip,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).  We welcome you and hope you find our website, professional services, products, and our other subscription services and tools (collectively, the “Services”) helpful and useful.  We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to help our current and potential customers, clients, their employees, our employees, and other business partners (“you” or “your,”)  understand what Data we collect, store, share, and use, how and why we do so, and what your rights are in regards to that Data.

Please read these terms of PRIVACY + LEGAL TERMS  (“Terms”, “Terms of Service," "Privacy", "legal," "Terms") carefully before using the https://www.stonedkitty.com website (the “Service”) operated by Stoned Kitty Catnip (“www.stonedkitty.com”, "this site",  "the site," "Stoned Kitty," "Stoned Kitty Catnip").  

 

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms.  These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.  By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms.  If you disagree with any part of the TERMS then you do not have permission to access the Service.

 

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read this privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how Stoned Kitty Catnip (www.stonedkitty.com) collects, uses, protects or otherwise handles your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this website.
 

We always seek to improve our Services to you, and that requires that and what we collect, store, share, and use information about you and your usage preferences.  As we do so, we are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy and the security of your personal 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 We Collect and How We Use It” 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.  However, it should be noted that at this time 1.1.20, Stoned Kitty Catnip does not implement any collective analytics separate from what is provided in fees we pay from Wix.com.  At this time we do not implement Google Analytics on our site either.

When we have a separate agreement with you and that agreement addresses how we handle Data, the terms of that separate agreement will control over any conflicting provisions of this Privacy Policy.  The definition of “Data” in that separate agreement, if there is one, may differ from the definition we use in this Privacy policy, since the agreement will address particular interactions with a particular party.

With that exception, this Privacy Policy applies to everybody who interacts with us online or otherwise.  Since different portions of the Privacy Policy will apply differently to the various groups who interact with us, we have tried to clearly categorize the types of Data we process and how we do so.  If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or how we handle your Data, please e-mail us at info@stonedkitty.com. 

 

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.

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 SHOP 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

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

 

DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

Listed below are the categories of Data we collect when you opt in to the Stoned Kitty Catnip Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, which are made available to you in the onboarding or check-out process when you make a purchase at Stoned Kitty.  We never sell your Data, and we always have a lawful basis for gathering the Data, but that lawful basis might be different for different categories, and we describe those uses below.  Regardless, we never use the Data for any purpose other than the purpose for which we gathered the Data in the first place, unless we get your prior explicit consent.

SPECIFIC INTERACTIONS

  1. 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. 

  1. 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. 

  1. 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. 

 

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

Except where a specific limitation is noted above, we may share your Data as follows:

  1. At Your Instruction. If you request us to make your Data available to a third party, and such request furthers the purposes of our Services, we will do so.

  2. Sharing with Vendors and Service Providers.  In certain cases, we use the services of third-party vendors and service providers, to assist us in providing the Services.  We may share your Data with such vendors and service providers solely for that purpose, and we will require those parties to abide by our privacy policies or privacy policies substantially in consonance with ours.

  3. Third-Party Offers. Although Stoned Kitty does not offer Third-Party offers at this time, in the future we may allow other companies to offer you their products and services, including offers through our Services, co-branded pages hosted by the third parties, or via email. Whether or not you decide to participate in any such offers is up to you. If you purchase a product or service on a co-branded page, or via a third-party offer on our Services that requires you to submit financial and personal information, you are also consenting to our delivery of this information to that party. The offer will notify you if any financial or personally identifiable information will be shared. Such third party will be authorized to use this information in keeping with our contractual relationship with them and in accordance with their own privacy policy and information practices. We do not control these third parties and you agree that we are not liable for their acts, or any failure to act on their part.

  4. Third-Party Advertising. We may use aggregated, statistical information to describe our membership and to establish advertising and other business relationships with third parties. We may serve you with targeted advertisements based on your personal or profile information, but we do not provide any of this personal or profile information to an advertiser or any third party with the exception of those uses expressly disclosed in this policy. However, if you click or view an ad on our Services then you consent to the likelihood that the advertiser will assume that you meet the targeting criteria, if any, used to display such ad, and as described above, you will be subject to the advertiser's privacy policy and information collection practices (if any).  At this time, Stoned Kitty does not send any emails or advertise for any products on our website.  Therefore, at this time there is NO Third-Party Advertising on our website.  You will NOT receive any emails rom Stoned Kitty promoting any other products. If at any time, Stoned Kitty decides to opt-in to a Third Party Advertising, you will be notified on this POLICY page. 

  5. Service Providers. We may sometimes use a third party to provide specific Services on our behalf, including sending e-mails to our members, conducting member surveys, processing transactions or performing statistical analysis of our Services. In these cases, we may provide certain personal information, such as your name and e-mail address and other financial information necessary for the service to be provided. However, these third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of this information and are prohibited from retaining, sharing, storing or using this information for any other purposes.  This will apply to WIX.com in which case Stoned Kitty use the WIX messaging system to customers as well as WIX.com processing services.

  6. Internet Service Providers. We may provide certain portions of your Data, such as your email address or name, back to your internet service provider if we have an existing advertising relationship with them. This is done to allow them to target or discontinue your exposure to our advertisements, once you have become a participating member of our Services. As part of our agreement with your internet service provider, they will be required to maintain this information in a confidential manner and use it solely for the purpose described in this Privacy Policy.

  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.

  8. Legal Disclosure. We may disclose your Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable law, comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or property, or investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our terms of service.

  9. Publicly Disclosed Data.  Certain items of Data are always publicly available, such as if you follow us on Facebook or other social media accounts, tag us in pictures on social media such as your username, information you provide publically via your social media sites, and people who follow you or view your public and private profiles. Those are not related to Stoned Kitty Catnip in any way besides the fact you are customer to us and chose to post a picture of our products via your social media pages.

 

If we ever plan to use any Data in the future for any other purposes not identified above and we do not have a separate lawful basis for that new purpose for processing, we will only do so after obtaining your specific consent.  This POLICY PAGE will be updated.

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.

  • 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.

How we protect your information:

The security of your personal information is very important to us.​  When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). For purchases made online with credit cards, we do NOT store your credit card number and our employees do not have access to this information.

We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
