Information we collect and how we use it
CCI collects personal data from you when you request information from CCI and/or supply, information through the Sites, such as when you fill out a subscription form or consulting expertise inquiry, opt in to receive emails from CCI, agree to participate in surveys, join our network or apply for a role at CCI.
Personal data we collect might include your name, e-mail address, title, occupation, company or university affiliation, industry, region/country, relationship to CCI, reason for contacting CCI, topics you are interested in, any other background information provided with an application and any other information contained in messages you send us.
CCI will use your personal data to fulfill your request, provide you with the information you requested and/or send you marketing communications. If you have applied for a job at CCI, your data will be processed for the purposes of evaluating and processing your application and candidacy for the position to which you have applied. We may also use your information to analyze and improve our recruiting and onboarding processes as well as to communicate with you about CCI events and to send you publications that we think may be of interest to you.
CCI may collect personal data and may disclose such information to third party service providers in aggregate for marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you.
If you register with the CCI newsletter, your data will be processed for purposes including surveys as well as maintaining and sharing marketing and career development contacts.
You do not have to provide us with any personal data. However, if you do not, we may be unable to handle your request or to provide you with the services you are requesting.
CCI will keep your personal data for as long as needed to handle your request or for as long as we have a relationship with you. If you have applied for a role with CCI, CCI will keep your personal data associated with your application for a period of up to five years.
Please note that CCI is not responsible for any information you may disclose publicly in any chat rooms, message boards, or similar web pages, including those hosted on or linked to our Sites. You should keep in mind that, whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online (for example, via message boards or chat rooms), such information could be collected and used by people whom you do not know. In addition, certain message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. CCI bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the message boards, chat areas or other user forums, if any, on the Sites.
The “help” section of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies, and how to disable or delete cookies altogether.
If you choose to disable cookies, certain functionalities of our Sites might not work.
Who we share your personal data with
We may share your personal data with others, such as:
- other offices in the CCI group;
- carefully selected third party service providers, such as marketing service providers (if you have subscribed to our marketing communications), IT systems providers, recruitment service providers, background check providers, data cleansing providers or event organizers, so they can provide services to CCI;
- our advisors; and
- law enforcement authorities or other government bodies when we are required to do so.
Third parties, other than law enforcement authorities or government bodies, will only handle your personal data on behalf of CCI for the purposes described in this Policy. CCI will not sell or otherwise share your personal data with such third parties for their own use.
The companies of the CCI group and other third parties we share your information with may be located in other countries, including countries that do not offer the same protection to your personal data as the country in which you reside. Where that is the case, CCI ensures that your personal data is protected by using appropriate legal mechanisms. If you reside in the European Union, such mechanisms include using contracts or wording approved by the European Commission (called “Standard Contractual Clauses”) or, in the case of US-based companies, working with companies that are Privacy Shield certified.

Security of your personal data
CCI has implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Such measures include anonymizing or pseudonymizing data where possible. Authorized CCI personnel and third parties mentioned above will only have access to your personal data to the extent they need it to do their job or provide their services. Despite these precautions, however, CCI cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your information.
Depending on where you reside, you may be entitled to certain rights regarding the personal data CCI holds about you. For instance, you may have the right to request access to your information, obtain a copy of it as well as information about how we use it. You have the right to request that we correct incorrect, inaccurate or out-of-date information about you. You may also have the right to request that we stop processing your information and/or withdraw your consent to such processing and to ask us to delete your information.
In the event that you have applied for a role at CCI and you no longer wish your data to be processed as described in this Policy, or if you wish to access, rectify, cancel or oppose such processing, please contact us at Recruiting@CannabisComplianceInc.com.
If you receive marketing communications from CCI, you can opt out of receiving future emails from CCI or unsubscribe from participating in our programs through the “preferences” page, which is accessible in every marketing email you receive from CCI.
If you think we are handling your information unlawfully, we encourage you to get in touch with us at DataPrivacy@CannabisComplianceInc.com. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint with your national supervisory authority.
If you apply for a job at CCI, you will be asked to submit information to CCI such as your name, contact details, information about your education and work history and any other background information that might be relevant for your application or that you choose to share with CCI. If you do not provide this information to us, we might not be able to process your application.
CCI will use this information to assess your application and candidacy for the position to which you have applied. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, this may include: (i) evaluating your skills and experience in relation to the qualification required for the job to which you have applied; and (ii) tracking feedback and interactions we have with you throughout the recruiting process. We may also use your information when analyzing our internal recruiting processes to determine (i) which recruit sources to focus on; (ii) how to improve integration and training programs for new hires with different educational backgrounds and work experience; and (iii) how to enhance our interview model to improve hiring quality. The information you provide may also be used to communicate with you about CCI events and to send you publications that we think may be of interest to you.
We might share your personal data with other companies in the CCI group as well as with third parties such as recruitment service providers, background check providers and IT system providers. These CCI companies and third parties might be located in a different country than your country of residence.
We will keep your application data for up to five years. If you no longer wish for CCI to process your data or if you wish to exercise your rights, please contact Recruiting@CCI.com.
Our Sites are not directed at children 21 years of age or younger. CCI, therefore, will not intentionally collect information about anyone under the age of 21, and requests that no such information be submitted to us.
