Information you provide. We may collect your personal information such as your name, civic address, e-mail address or other profile information when you are doing business with us (including, without limitation, upon signing-up to grow your own buzzing garden), when you contact us or make an inquiry. You will usually know when we collect this information because you will be asked to provide us with your information. We will only use this information, as the case may be, to manage our business relationship with you, to contact you in order to answer your questions and requests, to provide you with the information or services which you have requested. Although we have endeavored to ensure that all information is accurate at the time of posting on the Site, we cannot guarantee or warrant completeness or accuracy, or that information will be updated.
From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
Hyperlinks. This Site contains hyperlinks to other Web sites unrelated to Bees Matter. Those links are provided as a convenience. However, in using those sites, you will leave this site and shall assume any risk involved. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, security or content of any such Web sites. Links to other sites do not imply that Bees Matter endorses or is affiliated with such other sites. We cannot be held liable for any damages whatsoever arising from the use of the information or such links or the functionality of the sites to which these links direct, whether direct, indirect, consequential, special, punitive, exemplary or otherwise, and whether the claim is for contract, negligence, strict product liability or otherwise.
Security of Personal Information. We will use reasonable security measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized access. Please be careful whenever sending personal information to us via e-mail. E-mail is generally not a secure means of transferring information. We therefore cannot guarantee that this information will not be lost or used in a fraudulent manner and we encourage the use of e-mail encryption to communicate with us.
Anti-Spam. We are committed to providing transparency to outside parties (which we may electronically communicate with) with respect our practices in complying with Canada’s anti-spam legislation and its relevant rules and regulations (“CASL”). The types of commercial electronic messages (or CEM) that Bees Matter may send from time to time could include the following: (i) messages sent to our current subscribers pertaining to the Bees Matter project (whether individuals or businesses); and (ii) messages sent to our current or potential service providers or business partners by our various business units. For example, Bees Matter may outsource part of its activities to a third party (such as a translation service provider, etc.).
If you have received a CEM from Bees Matter it is because either you have previously provided your express consent, we have your implied consent under CASL, or because the type of message sent is exempt under CASL. If you have received a CEM, and you believe that you should not have, please contact us immediately at in order to unsubscribe and we will remove your electronic address from our list within 10 business days.
We will respond to your request to access, update or edit your personal information within thirty (30) business days. Before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies or modify any information, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details (in a secure manner) to help us to respond to your request.
