Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Cannabis Use in Society
Not everyone accepts cannabis use as permissible. For example, some employers may have anti-drug policies that disallow cannabis use.
You acknowledge that by interacting with Budcars Services, providing your information to Budcars, allowing Budcars to collect data about you, permitting Budcars to send you communications, or using Budcars products could imply to employers, friends, family, or others that you are a cannabis product user, which could have unwanted social, legal, employment, economic, or other impacts that could affect you, including, but not limited to, your loss of employment, and that Budcars shall not be held liable for damages arising out of or connected with the foregoing because your use of the Services and Budcars products are solely at your own risk.
Information Collection Practices
When you visit our Services, we may collect information from or about you (“personal information”).
What Basic Information Does Budcars Collect?

Such personal information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, date of birth, age, gender, state of residence, e-mail address, telephone number, financial data (which may include your credit card or debit card number), and other information which identifies you. If you visit one of our retail locations or request product delivery, we may also collect personal information from your government identification card when you provide it to us, including your name, address, picture, driver license or other government identification card number, and any other information on your government identification card, as well as video, audio, and images that we capture from our security cameras inside and around our retail locations. If you choose to register on our website or via a mobile application, or otherwise create a Member account, you may be required to provide certain personal information. If you do not provide the requested personal information, you may not be able to access or use the features of the Services where such personal information is requested.
Budcars also makes use of third-party cookies provided by Google and other companies to help track your web surfing activity in order to improve the quality and flow of Budcars website.
For your privacy, Budcars and third-party cookies are designed to not store personally identifiable data. Budcars does not store personal information in cookies, nor transmit personal information to third parties via cookies.
You are free to direct your web browser to delete cookies at any time. To learn how, consult your web browser’s user instructions. Note that if you delete your cookies, you may be required to sign into Budcars.com again, and stored browsing preferences you selected previously may be forgotten.
IP Address and Telemetry Data
When you visit us, our Internet servers automatically collect data about your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), which is the network address of your computer, phone, or other computing device. When you visit our website, we may also collect “click stream” or “telemetry” data, which is data about your web browser, and the web server and content you are trying to access. For example, our website may record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages you visit on our website; the website you visit after leaving our website; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on our website or a referral website; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. This information can be combined with information you have provided to us by registering as a Member, for example, which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits. We may use telemetry data for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers, for traffic analysis or e-commerce analysis of our website, to help secure our systems, to customize our Services for you, or to determine which features of our site are most or least effective or useful to you. Such information may also be used to gather demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may also aggregate user information in a non-personally identifiable manner to share with advertisers, to enhance the Services, or for general business purposes.
When visiting our website, we may also use “Clear GIFs” (aka “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies in our website and/or in our communications with you. A Clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which helps us to verify an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message. Clear GIFs allow us to know whether you have viewed a web page prior to visiting our website and may enable us to relate such information to other information, including your Personal Information. We use information provided from Clear GIFs and similar technologies to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make our Services better for our users.

We may use your personal information for a variety of purposes, including to identify you; verify your age; process payments for you; identify your location; facilitate transactions and/or communications, including marketing communications and Services-related communications with you; register you for Budcars services, such as a website, mobile application, delivery, or rewards account; maintain current information about your Services usage and accounts; track your accumulation of redeemable rewards based on your product purchase history and Services usage; protect our users, ourselves, our Services, and our affiliates from fraud, theft, hacking, phishing and other unlawful activities; analyze website traffic; diagnose technical problems in our Services; comply with laws and Budcars policies; conduct website and activity tracking, including Services optimization and personalization; and, generate and study analytics related to your usage of our Services.
Identify Verification, Service Improvement, and Cannabis Limit Enforcement
Many jurisdictions require careful verification of identity before allowing you to purchase cannabis products. When you use our Services at a physical location, your government-issued identification card will be physically examined and electronically scanned in order to verify your age and your identification’s validity. Once your data has been scanned, your name, address, identification number, photo, and other data may be retained by Budcars for the purpose of analyzing your use of our Services, enforcing cannabis purchasing limits as required by some jurisdictions, creating an electronic profile about you in order to make future verifications of your identity easier, and to help us customize Services and experiences for you.
Photographic and audiovisual recordings of you inside and around of Budcars retail stores and delivery vehicles will be used for the purpose of maintaining physical security, identifying you, and complying with laws that require video surveillance.
Audiovisual footage captured in stores, and any photo of yourself that you supply, may also be used to help identify you, and customize your experience as you use our Services.
You acknowledge that audiovisual and photographic recordings of you may be stored by Budcars and accessed by and supplied to Budcars employees, government agencies, and others at Budcars sole discretion at any time, for any purpose, with or without a legal order or subpoena, and without notice or financial compensation to you.
You permit Budcars to collect and use your debit, credit card, or other financial data you provide (“Payment Data”) in order to facilitate payments for Budcars Services and products at your request. In order to facilitate payments, your Payment Data may be transmitted to, stored at, and used by third parties for the purposes of processing your payment, analyzing your Payment Data for signs of fraud or criminal activity, and other functions required of third-party payment processors. While Budcars strives to only hire reliable third parties, you agree that Budcars cannot be held liable for how your Payment Data is used or retained or protected while it is in transit to, stored at, or used by third parties that process payments for you.
If you ask us to delete your data, note that Budcars cannot delete data stored at third party payment processors that must retain Payment Data in order to meet their own compliance requirements. If you have questions about the use of your Payment Data, please contact our payment processors directly – send an email to [email protected] for the most current list of Budcars payment processors.

We collect your IP Address, location data advertised by web browsers and mobile devices, your physical address if you provide it to us, and similar location data to identify your location in order to provide location-based services, such as showing you Services or products available in your area, customizing in-store experiences, delivering products to you at your request, and analyzing your use of our Services.
