Website Privacy Policies in the Cannabis and Hemp Industry

A Privacy Policy is required by law if you collect any information (i.e. names, email address, payment info, etc.) on your website. This is extremely important in the Cannabis industry, because online Cannabis businesses (especially adult use) are required to capture sensitive information such as dates of birth, state identification cards, driver's licenses, and home addresses. Many customers in the Cannabis industry are often on guard with giving up their personal information, due to potential criminal implications. Informing your client that their information will be safely protected and stored, is not only legally required, but good for building trust. In the Cannabis industry, your reputation is everything.
