From time to time Bee2gether may also collect information about You from third parties but only in cases where You have agreed that those third parties may provide Your information to Bee2gether .
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES BEE2GETHER COLLECT?
Bee2gether limits the collection and use of Your information to that which is necessary to fulfill identified purposes or to deliver requested information, products or services to You. If we intend to use Your information in any way we didn’t tell You about previously, we will obtain Your consent for the new purpose or use prior to doing so.

Bee2gether will not, without Your permission, disclose Your personal information to unaffiliated third parties except that Bee2gether reserves the right to disclose Your personal information to: (i) third party service providers for purposes related to supporting our business (e.g., fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services) and providing You with information that may be of interest to You (if You have opted in to receiving such information) in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Policy; and (ii) to third parties in connection with a sale, assignment, merger, amalgamation, plan of arrangement or other transfer of the Bee2gether business (including but not limited to all pre-sale, assignment, merger, amalgamation, plan of arrangement or transfer activities and all transaction negotiations and due diligence activities) to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer, assignee, successor party, transferee or other party related to the transaction to agree to treat the information in accordance with this Policy.
We may from time to time use outside third party suppliers to do work for us involving some of Your information – for example, to perform computer services on our behalf, to analyze survey results or marketing data or to administer to manage promotions or contests or for other reasonable purposes. We select the company carefully and confirm that it uses privacy and security standards that meet Bee2gether ’s requirements. If such third parties are located outside of Canada, Bee2gether will notify You prior to any such transfer taking place.
Except with Your consent or as described in this Policy, Bee2gether will otherwise only disclose Your personal information to third parties in the following limited circumstances: (i) if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, court order or order of an administrative tribunal or other body authorized to compel the disclosure of such information legally requires Bee2gether to do so; (ii) if the rights or property of Bee2gether , its affiliates, subsidiaries, third party service providers or the others are in jeopardy; and (iii) if the personal safety of users of the Bee2gether website or other members of the public are in jeopardy.
