Terms & Conditions

Your Privacy & Terms of Use

This Web site is administered by the BC Landscape & Nursery Association. The primary purpose of BCLNA.com is to act as an information source and open forum for its members and for those members of the public and industry with related interests. The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit along with your legal responsibilities as users of this site.

Your Privacy

What information do we gather?
Information on BCLNA.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.)

One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you visit bclna.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. We might collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this statement. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files of information which save and retrieve information about your visit to bclna.com – for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. (If you are uncomfortable regarding cookies use, please keep in mind you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in preferences or options menu in your browser.) We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. Throughout our site, we may provide the opportunity to register for on-line newsletters and information updates. We also collect data from you when you register online for BCLNA related events or services. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it except in the case of an online purchase, in which case we must collect a minimum amount of customer data for security reasons.

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 bclna.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 BCLNA.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.

Terms of Use

As a user of BCLNA.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
