and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about how
we collect, use and safeguard the information and data you may provide to us or we
otherwise collect in connection with offering our services (collectively, the “Services”).
This Privacy Policy is subject to modification and/or update as set forth below under the
caption “Updates to this Policy.”
This Privacy Policy applies to information and data you may provide to us or we otherwise
collect from you via the websites and the “BeesPath” mobile
applications or other websites or mobile applications which are specifically added to this
Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Sites”). By using or downloading any of the Sites, or
voluntarily providing your information to us, you consent to the collection and use
of all information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms
of this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us with any information and do not use or
download the Sites.
This Privacy Policy applies only to information submitted or collected through the Sites
(other than as indicated below in this paragraph), and does not apply to any information
that may be collected by the Company through any other means, including offline. This
policy also does not apply to information about you collected by third party services,
applications, or websites or advertisements associated with, linked to or otherwise
accessible from the Sites. In this regard, note that to the extent any credit card payment
information (including the number, security code and expiration date) is submitted by you
in connection with your use of the Sites or the Services, such information is not collected
by the Company but rather is sent directly to a third party payment processor. The
information collected or received by such third parties (such as the third party
payment processor), is subject to their own privacy policies and under no
circumstances is the Company responsible or liable for the third party’s
compliance therewith.
We collect personally identifiable information in the following situations: (i) when you
register to become a user of the Services through the Sites, (ii) when you “opt in” for
certain services or features of the Sites, such as electing to receive emails, and (iii)
automatically as further described below.
We also receive the automatic and passive data (both personally identifiable and
otherwise) from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access the Sites
and the Services, and when you interact with the Sites. In this regard, the Sites use
common automated information gathering tools such as logs files that record page
activity, including a particular user’s visits to a page and how many "hits" a particular item
is receiving, as well as other user activity. We may also collect information through other
technologies, in particular the following:
“Cookies.” A cookie is a unique identifier sent to your computer by a Web
server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie lets a computer server identify
your computer. A cookie is what allows many sites to greet you upon every return with a
personalized message even before you actively login. Our cookies do not include any
personal information, but they do help us track which of our Web pages are visited and
what services are most often used. Third party advertisements may also contain cookies
sent by Internet advertising companies or advertisers (known as “third party cookies”).
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may choose not to receive a
cookie file by enabling your Web browser to refuse cookies or to prompt you before
accepting a cookie. Please be aware, however, that by refusing to accept cookies, you
will be unable to access a significant portion of the Site and unable to use a significant
portion of the Services.
“Clear gifs.” Similarly, our analytics and any third party advertising partners
may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs), that
help us better manage content on our Sites by informing us what content is effective.
Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are
used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored
on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are
about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information
gathered by clear gifs to our users' personally identifiable information.
3. “Flash LSOs.” When we post videos on our site, third parties may use local shared
objects, also known as Flash cookies, to store your preferences for volume control,
or to personalize certain video features. Flash cookies are different from browser
cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored. Cookie
management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. To
