While you may use most of the Services without registering, certain Services do require that you register with MarijuanaBreak for them to function properly. If you choose to register or update an existing account with MarijuanaBreak or access certain Services, you may be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, gender, email address and date of birth, and a username and password to access your MarijuanaBreak account. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personal information that you submit to MarijuanaBreak.
User Reviews, MarijuanaBreak Message Boards, and Other Public Forums
In connection with the use of some of our Services, users may be able to submit provider reviews. MarijuanaBreak also features several message board areas and other public forums where users can post reviews, share information and support one another or where users can post questions for experts to answer. We also may offer online discussions moderated by healthcare experts. Our reviews and comments features and our message boards are open to the public and should not be considered private.
Any information (including personal information) you share in any review, online message board, or other forum is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any personal information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.
If you mistakenly post personal information in our message board areas and would like it removed, you can send us an email at info@MarijuanaBreak.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information.
