This Web site is administered by the BC Landscape & Nursery Association. The primary purpose of LandscapeBC.com is to act as an information resource and forum to promote BCLNA member services to the public. The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit along with your legal responsibilities as users of this site.
What information do we gather?
Information on LandscapeBC.com is gathered in two ways:
(1) indirectly (for example, through our site’s technology); and
(2) directly (for example, when you voluntarily provide information on various pages of our web site.)
How do we use this information?
We analyze it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor landscapebc.com to make the site more effective for its users. We may also use data for other purposes such as marketing related tasks, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
Will we share this information with outside parties?
We will not sell individual information and we will not share it with any parties not related to the BCLNA. But again, before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
What about sensitive personal data?
By law, sensitive data is comprised of the following, and the BCLNA will not ask for or use any such data except in the case of an online purchase where basic customer identification must be verified. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, color, nationality, political opinions or convictions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or handicap, genetic code, addictions, gender, sexual life (including sexual orientation), pregnancy, property matters or penal or criminal conviction or record (including where a pardon has been granted).
While we take steps to maintain the security of landscapebc.com, you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.
As a user of landscapebc.com it is your responsibility to ensure the site and its contents are not harmed, altered or misused in any way. Any individuals, groups or organizations found to be involved in attempts to deface BCLNA.com, to hamper the site’s abilities to operate, to tamper with page content or to use the site for the purpose of activities deemed illegal or immoral under Canadian or United Stated law will be prosecuted by the BCLNA and by any other individuals or groups related to the incident.
The BCLNA is dedicated to maintaining your privacy online and in creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us via our webmaster David Montie at Sparkjoy Studios.
