ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY AGREEMENT
 

        Birk's Landscaping Inc (Birk's) values its users' privacy. This Privacy Policy ("Policy") will help you understand how we collect and use personal information from those who visit our website or make use of our online facilities and services, and what we will and will not do with the information we collect. Our Policy has been designed and created to ensure those affiliated with Birk's Landscaping Inc of our commitment and realization of our obligation not only to meet, but to exceed, most existing privacy standards.

       We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy at any given time. If you want to make sure that you are up to date with the latest changes, we advise you to frequently visit this page. If at any point in time Birk's Landscaping Inc decides to make use of any personally identifiable information on file, in a manner vastly different from that which was stated when this information was initially collected, the user or users shall be promptly notified by email. Users at that time shall have the option as to whether to permit the use of their information in this separate manner.

         This Policy applies to Birk's Landscaping Inc, and it governs any and all data collection and usage by us. Through the use of Birkslandscaping.net, you are therefore consenting to the data collection procedures expressed in this Policy.

All personal information collected by this institution is governed by the Privacy Act. This means that you will be informed of the purpose for which your personal information is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information.

Your privacy and the Internet

The nature of the Internet is such that web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor's Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP for example, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, the Government of Canada considers the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when a visitor requests a webpage such as the page or pages visited, date, and time of the visit.

Unless otherwise noted, Birk's Landscaping INC does not automatically gather any specific personal information, such as name, telephone number, or email address from those who visit our webpages. We would obtain this type of information only if you supply it to us, for example, by email, or by filling in a contact form, or conduct other online transactions with us. When we collect personal information from you during an online transaction, we explain why we are doing so and how you can exercise your right to access that information. The explanation we provide is often in the form of a privacy notice or statement. In cases where services are provided by organizations outside of the Government of Canada, such as social media platforms or mobile applications, IP addresses may be recorded by the web server of the third-party service provider.

Please note that this Policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that Birk's Landscaping Incdoes not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by us.
