We are ihiveLIVE Inc. (“ihiveLIVE” or “IHL”)


Our Privacy Policy is intended to assist you in understanding how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using the ihiveLIVE sharing platform. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices, our customers' needs, and development in the law. This privacy policy sets out how ihiveLIVE uses and protects any information that you give us.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the terms of ihiveLIVE’s Terms of Service. Terms defined in the Terms of Service have the same meanings herein. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy Statement at any time, with or without notice. If there are material changes to this Privacy Policy, ihiveLIVE will notify you by placing prominent notice on the web site and/or by email. When ihiveLIVE posts changes to this statement, we will also revise the "last updated" date. ihiveLIVE encourages you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to be informed of how we are protecting your information. See also “Policy Modifications” below.


ihiveLIVE is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Your personal information will only be used in accordance with this privacy policy. Personal information is information that refers to an individual specifically and is recorded in any form. Personal information includes such things as age, date of birth, address, ethnic origin, opinions, evaluations and social status. Information about individuals contained in publicly available printed and electronic publications is not considered personal information.
Depending on the products or services you wish to obtain from us, we may require specific information from you. We will identify the purpose for which the information is requested at or before the time the information is collected. This information may be communicated orally, in writing, or electronically. If we have a new purpose for which we intend to collect, use or disclose information, we will identify that purpose on our website, or in a written notification or direct communication to you.


Our websites allow each ihiveLIVE Member, generally, to opt-out/opt-in so that they may or may not receive certain forms of advertising and promotion, messages, notices or alerts. After opting-out, we will discontinue sending the particular messages as soon as technically feasible.


These Privacy Policies apply across all of our websites (“our websites”), including, without limitation, all ihiveLIVE program websites. This includes co-branded sites that prominently display the names and logos of our coalition partners with a smaller display of a “ihiveLIVE” logo.

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
As you visit and browse ihiveLIVE, ihiveLIVE uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting the ihiveLIVE and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve the ihiveLIVE and better serve its Members. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.


IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data.” Your IP address is collected so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you. We may also use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our websites, and in case we have to investigate illegal or fraudulent use of our servers or our websites.

Our website does not provide any personal information to these third parties, but they may collect information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements they deliver, and possibly associate this information with your subsequent visits to the advertised websites. They also may combine this information with personal information they collect from you. The collection and use of that information is subject to the third-party's privacy policy. This information allows them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness.

For example, we may use third parties to help host our website, send out email updates about our Services, remove repetitive information from our user lists, process payments, or provide search results or links (including sponsored links). These service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time, but when this occurs, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.
To advertise our services. We may ask advertisers outside of our Services to display ads promoting our services. We may ask them to deliver those ads based on the presence of a cookie, but in doing so will not share any other information with the advertiser.

We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law, or to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against legal claims. This may include respecting requests from jurisdictions outside of Canada where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, apply to users from that jurisdiction, and are consistent with generally accepted international standards. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you from people violating our policies, Terms of Service, and to protect us and other users of our services.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) lays out specific requirements for businesses and organizations who are established in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or who serve users in the EEA. It regulates how businesses can collect, use, and store personal data.
Where we act as a processor of personal data, we make available data processing terms, reflecting the controller-processor relationship, where required.
The European Commission has approved the use of model contract clauses as a means of ensuring adequate protection when transferring data outside of the EEA [see: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_en]. By incorporating model contract clauses into a contract established between the parties transferring data, personal data can be protected when transferred outside the EEA to countries which have not been deemed by the European Commission to adequately protect personal data. Canada and the United States of America have been recognized as providing adequate protection.
We have incorporated standard contractual clauses referenced for use for compliance with 2010/87/EU where applicable (ie. outside of countries recognized by the European Commission as providing adequate protection) as found at: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087


The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new data privacy law which applies to certain businesses that collect personal information from California residents. The new law went into effect on January 1, 2020. The law includes a provision that gives California residents the right to opt out of the "sale" of their "personal information" through a prominent link that says "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" on the "selling" party’s homepage. The CCPA includes certain exceptions to the definition of "sale", including transfers to "service providers". This information is subject to change from time to time as regulations are updated.
Under California Law SB 27, California residents have the right to receive, once a year, information about third parties with whom we have shared information about you or your family for their marketing purposes during the previous calendar year, and a description of the categories of personal information shared. To make such a request, please send an email to the email address we provided in this Privacy Policy and please include the phrase “California Privacy Request” in the subject line, and provide us with your name, address and email address. We will respond to you within thirty days of receiving such a request. We may provide this information in a standard format that is not specific to you.
