Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LearningBeekeeping collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LearningBeekeeping’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LearningBeekeeping’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LearningBeekeeping may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LearningBeekeeping also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. LearningBeekeeping only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Aggregated Statistics

LearningBeekeeping may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LearningBeekeeping may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LearningBeekeeping may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LearningBeekeeping does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LearningBeekeeping discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LearningBeekeeping’s behalf or to provide services available at LearningBeekeeping’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LearningBeekeeping’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LearningBeekeeping will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LearningBeekeeping discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LearningBeekeeping believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LearningBeekeeping, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an LearningBeekeeping website and have supplied your email address, LearningBeekeeping may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with LearningBeekeeping and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LearningBeekeeping takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

LearningBeekeeping visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LearningBeekeeping’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of LearningBeekeeping’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
Business Transfers

If LearningBeekeeping, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that LearningBeekeeping goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of LearningBeekeeping may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by LearningBeekeeping and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are saved on our servers, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LearningBeekeeping may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in LearningBeekeeping’s sole discretion. LearningBeekeeping encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change. Changes to this policy will be capricious and final.

Dark Side

We may also share your data with the Sith. After the unfortunate early demise of the  Death Star due to technical malfunctions in the conflict zone, there is a pressing shortage in the Imperial ranks. Recruitment is down, and personal information may be shared with representatives from the Emperor to aid in boosting recruitment. We ask that you do your part to help keep the Imperium free of rebel scum.

A note on free

If you get something for free, constantly and without cost. Most likely you are not the customer, you are the product. Something for lambs to remember as they go to slaughter. So beware of Facebook.

    Nick,I just waetnd to say that I really like the new iPad version of the site.. Nice job!! I’m new to beekeeping and I built my own octagonal top bar hives using inspiration from your site. I’m currently waiting for my package bees so I can get started but I have learned so much about bees and beekeeping here on PTheBeeSpace and I waetnd to thank you! I became aware of the plight of the honeybee a few years ago and so I began paying attention to my local situation out of concern. I became increasingly alarmed because I rarely, if ever, saw honeybees around my garden. And so I began doing more and more research about Varroa mites, Tracheal mites, brood diseases and CCD, until I finally decided that the best option was to take matters into my own hands and put in a couple of top bar hives here at my home. I decided to try the octagonal hive because it seemed more natural (in all honesty.. I was going to try to build pdodecagonal hives but felt that it was beyond my woodworking skills) and I waetnd to provide the girls as natural environment as I could while still being able to monitor the hive for trouble. So now my hives are built and I await my package bees (Italian/Carniolan cross) and I feel less overwhelmed because of your site and the eloquence of your explanations and observations. For that sir, I thank you and I look forward to more from TheBeeSpace!-Lindsay
