This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to users of the Berger Peat Moss Ltd. (“Berger”) website,, and to the personal information that Berger collects in the course of any interactions with you.

Please read this Policy carefully to clearly understand how Berger may collect, use, process and disclose your personal information. By accessing our website and otherwise providing us with personal information as part of our interactions with you, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure and communication of your personal information as described in this Policy.


We understand that you are looking to learn more about our company when you visit our website or contact us. Similarly, we hope to learn about your needs as a current or potential client through your visits to our website and our interactions with you.

We collect only the personal information needed to provide you with our products and services. We will not, as a condition of providing our products or services to you, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information beyond what is necessary to fulfill the specified legitimate purposes.

a. Personal information

Personal information includes any information about an identifiable individual, which means any information that relates to you and identifies you personally, either on its own or in combination with other information.

On our website, you can ask questions and register to receive information. You also have access to contact information for Berger. If you contact us, we will ask you for the personal information we need to contact you, including your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

If you choose not to provide us with personal information, you can still access our web site; however, you may not be able to participate in certain promotions or receive product information offered through the Berger web site.

b. Statistical data

Berger may collect certain aggregated data, such as information about your Web browser, operating system, pages visited and other information, and use cookies when you visit our Web pages. Our cookie practices are described in section 8 below.


We will use the information you provide to better understand your needs and provide you with better products and services. We will use the information you provide to communicate with you, to inform you about our products and services and to personalize our website for you. We may also use statistical data, if necessary, to ensure the security of our Web site, and to identify anyone attempting to break into or damage our Web site.

From time to time, we may survey you about your use of products for further market research or to provide you with marketing information that we think will be useful to you. Of course, you do not need to participate in these surveys, nor do you need to accept this marketing information.

In accordance with applicable laws, we will not use or disclose personal information without your consent, except when information must be used or disclosed, in particular:

  • (i) for the purposes of collecting a debt owed by the individual to the organization;
  • (ii) to comply with a legal requirement;
  • (iii) where reasonable for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or actual or suspected illegal activity;
  • (iv) in the case of a merger, acquisition, sale or divestiture of assets or other similar business transaction, for the purposes of evaluating and completing the business transaction;
  • (v) and otherwise as permitted or required by applicable law.


Berger does not sell any personal information to third parties.

In conducting our business, we may share personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, with Berger suppliers or partners (such as our web hosting provider, advertising agency, outside legal and financial advisors, consultants, etc.) in connection with services these entities perform for Berger.

We may also share your personal information with our affiliates to offer you products or services that may interest you.

These suppliers, partners and affiliates are not authorized to use this information for any purpose other than to provide Berger with services. We always require these third parties to provide a level of privacy protection comparable to Berger’s standards.


The personal information we collect may be accessed by individuals within our organization, or our service providers, who need access to fulfill the purposes described in this Policy, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.

The personal information we collect is managed from our offices in Canada. We may also use service providers located outside your jurisdiction. Your personal information may be processed and stored in a jurisdiction other than yours, and may thus be subject to access or disclosure to foreign authorities under the laws of those jurisdictions.


Subject to certain conditions and limitations under applicable law, you have the right to request access to and rectify the personal information we retain about you, or to withdraw your consent to its use or disclosure.

You can submit these requests by using our contact details in the “Contact us” section below. We may then ask you for specific information to help us confirm your identity and process your request. Applicable law may require or permit us to refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will let you know why, subject to any legal restrictions.


We will retain your personal information only as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and to meet our legal and contractual obligations. We have established specific retention periods, after which personal information is destroyed or made anonymous.


Berger is committed to protecting the data you provide to us and has implemented reasonable and appropriate technical, organizational and legal measures to protect your personal information against loss, misuse or alteration. However, Berger cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and will not be liable for any damages resulting directly or indirectly from any failure, interruption, intrusion or alteration of its systems.
