Purpose and Definitions
This policy describes how Cannalogue collects, uses and discloses the Personal Information it collects on the Site, including that in relation to registering as a Registered Patient and purchasing regulated medical cannabis products (“Products”).
In this policy:
“Personal Information” is any information about an identifiable individual, including health information.
A “Registered User” is an individual who can create an account to access the Site and view its content. A Registered User cannot purchase any Products.
A “Responsible Individual/Adult” is an individual responsible for a Registered Patient in accordance with the Cannabis Act. This person is authorized to assist an individual to obtain health care and related services or make decisions about health care, including a substitute decision maker, a legal guardian, a person exercising a power of attorney, a Responsible Individual, or a person who is acting on the individual’s behalf with the individual’s consent.
A “Visitor” is an individual who accesses the Site and views its content, but who is not a Registered User, Registered Patient or Responsible Individual/Adult.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
You may become a Registered User by providing your first name, last name, email address and a password. You may not purchase any Products. You may become a Registered Patient by providing the required documentation, as set out below.
Cannalogue has obligations as a licence holder of medical cannabis under the Cannabis Act. Cannalogue’s obligations are based on the Cannabis Act and other legislation including the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Narcotic Control Regulations, and any other applicable federal, provincial or local law as may be appropriate in the context, including consumer protection legislation, privacy legislation, the Food and Drugs Act (Canada), other statutory law and regulations, the Civil Code of Québec, common law, and any other applicable laws (collectively or in any combination, “Applicable Laws”). These obligations include the collection and disclosure of certain Personal Information.
As further described below, we collect different types of Personal Information in respect of the individuals with whom we interact. This includes information from medical documents, information you provide us, information about your purchases and payment information.
Information from Medical Document or Registration Certificate
More specifically, the Cannabis Act requires us to collect certain Personal Information before we can deliver Products to you, your health care provider, or your Responsible Individual/Adult. To receive medical cannabis from us, we require you to provide us with: (i) a document known as a “Medical Document” from an authorized healthcare practitioner or (ii) a document known as a “Registration Certificate” issued to you by the Minister of Health.
Generally speaking, a Medical Document or Registration Certificate includes your name and date of birth, the name and date of birth of your Responsible Individual (if applicable), information about your health care provider (such as his/her name, profession, business address, telephone number, email address and his/her province of registration and registration number), the location of your consultation, the daily quantity of medical cannabis you are approved to receive, and dosage information (quality quantity and period of use).
The Medical Document is sent directly to Cannalogue by a health care provider.
Information you provide to us
To become a Registered Patient, you must provide us with a valid Medical Document and Registration Form, which includes certain information, including your full name, address, email address and information about your licensed producer. Note: You may create an account to become a Registered User without a Medical Document; however, you will not be permitted to purchase any Cannabis Products until Cannalogue has received and verified your Medical Document and you become a Registered Patient.
Registered Patients may voluntarily provide us with additional Personal Information, for example relating to your medical condition or the results you obtain from your use of medical cannabis. This Personal Information is set out in the My Account section of the Site, under the sections My Health Profile and Track My Results. With your express consent, we will use such Personal Information provided by you for medical or market research, education, improving our product offerings, or otherwise improving the experience of our Registered Patients.
You may become a Registered Patient by creating an account through the Site or by contacting Cannalogue and providing the required information by phone and letter mail. Registered Patients may purchase Products online through the Site or over the phone by contacting Cannalogue.
Information about your purchases
We are required to track the dates, quantities, and other details of purchases of medical cannabis by Registered Patients.
