Bee House Registration
To register a bee house, a user must first complete the bee house registration form. During registration, a user is required to give certain information (such as name, email address, and mailing address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services/information on our site in which you have expressed interest.

Sharing 
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

We may use a third party (e.g. digital mailing service) to fulfill communications with you. These companies do not share your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond our intended communication with you.

Security 
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as email address), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. registration fulfillment, customer service, etc.) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
