There are two types of users of TCN Services: “Patients” who are interested in purchasing Medicinal Cannabis from Licensed Producers, and “Licensed Producers” who are in the business of providing Medicinal Cannabis to Patients.
TCN collects two types of patient information: (i) Personal Information, which constitutes any information that can identify an individual directly or through other reasonably available means and (ii) Non-personally identifiable information which is referred to as aggregate and/or anonymous data, meaning information that will not identify you. Also consider that what may initially be considered to be non-personal Information may, in some circumstances, result in an individual being identified. Please consider this when providing information.
When you use TCN Services as a Patient to request and order Medicinal Cannabis from Licensed Producers, you will be asked to provide TCN with certain Personal Information about yourself such as your first name, last name, address, phone number, email address and residence. You will also be asked to provide us with certain “personal health information” (as defined in the Personal Health Information Protection Act), such as the name and location of your doctor, health information, your prescribed daily amount of Medicinal Cannabis, the period of authorized use and the quantity of Medicinal Cannabis you wish to purchase.
