Your privacy is important to us. This privacy policy explains the data Ilera Healthcare LLC d/b/a The Apothecarium Dispensary, owners and operators of The Apothecarium Dispensaries in Pennsylvania (“The Apothecarium” or “we”), collects, uses, and stores when an individual (“you”) uses our cannabis product ordering and delivery service (the “Service”) through our website (the “Website”). The Service,  the Website, and their third-party e-commerce platform (“Sweed”) are collectively referred to as the “Solution”.

How The Apothecarium Uses Personal Information

Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you and to provide you with the Service. 

For example, we use personal information to: 

  • register and service your account; 
  • solicit feedback and respond to your questions; 
  • notify you of product availability;
  • notify you that your products are ready for pick up; 
  • provide technical support; and
  • inform you about product or promotional offers.

In order for the dispensary to process your order, our third-party e-commerce platform, Sweed, we receive your name, email address, phone number, reservation time, delivery location, and the specific products and the quantities you ordered. Based on information that we gather about your shopping history or consumers with similar shopping histories, we may suggest products to you. 

We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, and doing research. When we ask you to provide personal information, you can decline, but if you do, you may not be able to access the Website or use the Service or you may not be able to use certain features.  

Non-Personal Information

We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, identify a specific individual (non-personal information). We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information to improve the Solution and customize the user experience, or for any other legitimate purpose. We also may aggregate non-personal information in order to track trends and analyze use patterns on the Solution. 

The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

  • We may collect information such as zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, or location so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our Solution.
  • We may collect information regarding customer activities on our Website. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of the Solution are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered nonpersonal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • We may collect and store details of how you use the Service, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by the Solution. Except in limited instances to maintain quality of Solution over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.

This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of non-personal information and we reserve the right to use and disclose non-personal information to our partners, advertisers, product manufacturers and other third parties at our discretion (including aggregated and/or anonymized information about our users and their use of the Service). We do not use or respond to “do not track” signals that may be sent from your web browser. If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

We do not have access to, nor control over, third parties’ use of cookies or other tracking technologies.

The Apothecarium may disclose for business purposes the following categories of personal information to third parties: identifiers, customer records information, commercial information, internet or other electronic network activity information, and geolocation data. These third parties may have access to your personal information, but only to the extent needed to perform these tasks on our behalf, and we will contractually require them to protect and safeguard your personal information in accordance with applicable laws. We may also disclose your information to unaffiliated third parties for advertising and marketing purposes.
