Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute.

The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services.

By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns.

All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form.

In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns).

YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site.

Bert Haas, beloved husband, father, and grandfather was not only our Dad, he was our role
model, our hero and our rock.

Lambertus Johannes Haas was born July 22, 1931, in Deventer, the Netherlands to
Lambertus Haas and Wilhelmina Kortz. He was the seventh and youngest sibling to Ida,
Richard, Frida, Willem, Diny, and Josephine.

Bert grew up in a quintessentially Dutch row house on the 2e Weerdsweg near the Ijssel
River in Deventer. He loved cycling around the beautiful farmlands of the Netherlands, and in
winter, skating on the canals with his wooden skates. He was a bright and strong-willed boy
and was doted on by his mother and older sisters. His mother often admonished his siblings
to save a little extra food for “Kleine Bertje.”

During World War II and the German occupation of the Netherlands, food was scarce, and
there was a famine at the end of the war. Young Bert helped provide for the family. He would
bike out to visit relatives on a nearby farm, and come back with produce hidden in his clothes
to avoid confiscation at the checkpoints. The family kept rabbits in the back yard, and he
couldn’t stand them suffering, so at an early age, he took over from his father when it was
time for them to be slaughtered. He told dramatic stories of staging heists on Nazi bread
trucks where one friend would hop on the back of a moving truck and throw loaves of bread to
Bert and his friends riding behind on bikes.

When his older brother Richard escaped from a work camp in Germany, the family hid him in
the basement for the last year of the war. The Haas house was also close enough to a
significant bridge that it was in the range of bombers. Bert spoke of the family cowering in the
basement and listening to the terrifying sounds of bombs falling. Their house remained intact,
but many in their neighbourhood were not so lucky. Their local bridge was later used to film
“A Bridge Too Far” as the eponymous one in Arnhem had been destroyed. When Canadian
solders liberated Deventer, it was with a street to street offensive, and Bert described his 15-
year old self, tailing just behind the soldiers and witnessing the end of German occupation
with elation.

After high school, Bert’s initial dreams of joining the military were foiled because of his past
TB infection. And so he went on to study tropical agriculture at the local college. His
professor was Kees Zwanikken, father to the lovely Corrie, whom he had also happened to
meet through his sister Jos. Bert asked Corrie to a dance at the college, but she declined
because she had injured her hand and needed a tendon repair. When she felt better and
showed up anyway with her father, Bert was a little miffed, but he didn’t forget her.

He loved open spaces, and after college, he decided to emigrate to Canada. He arrived in
Toronto in 1954 with only his suitcase and $50 in his pocket. In his first year here, he worked
on a farm and saved his money. With that and with financial help from his generous siblings,
he enrolled in Forestry at the University of Toronto. There he made good friends, including his
old friend from Deventer, Dolf Wynia. He loved U of T, and even though he wasn’t a very
good soccer player, he was recruited to the varsity team simply because he was Dutch.

During the summers, he worked for forestry companies in northern wilds of B.C., Alberta and
Ontario. He and his crew would be flown in by float plane, dropped off with just their camping
gear, and their supplies, and a canoe, and they would spend the next few months paddling
their way down remote rivers and timber-cruising the local forests.

In his last year of school, Bert’s sister Jos encouraged him to write letters to her friend Corrie
back home. After a year of increasingly romantic correspondence, and a brief courtship back
in the Netherlands, they were married. Corrie followed Bert to his beloved Canada. Soon
after, Odette, Maureen, and Yvonne were born.

Bert began working for the the Department of Lands and Forests (later the Ministry of Natural
Resources,) and started his career in the south in Orono and Bowmanville, and then moving
north to Sioux Lookout, Geraltdon, and Terrace Bay, then finally Petawawa. He worked as
District Manager first in Terrace Bay and then in Pembroke District.

He was an avid outdoorsman, and first developed an interest in fishing and hunting in Sioux
Lookout with friend Jim Waddell. One of my fondest memories in Terrace Bay is of a time Dad
came home at midnight from a fishing trip. He gave me bear hug that smelled like woodsmoke and was scratchy with 2-week beard. I was allowed to stay up while he fried his
freshly caught pickerel in butter. It was the best fish I have ever tasted.

Lake Superior has a way of getting in the blood of those who live on it’s shores, and Bert was
no exception. He adored it’s wild beauty. Even after moving to Petawawa, he and Corrie
would drive across the province and then boat out to their beloved Slate Islands every
summer. That campground became their living room, and it was there they hosted many a
wonderful gathering of family and friends the Wynias and the Starrs, always with freshlycaught lake trout always on the menu.

Despite his extreme safety-consciousness, nothing would stop Bert from getting to the Slates
when he wanted to go. On a few occasions, he successfully navigated through fog using only
a compass. However, one attempt was not so successful. Lost in a dense fog, my parents
and the Starrs decided to raft together fir the night. They woke at dawn horrified to find
themselves floating right under an imposing Canadian shield cliff face. The story became a
legendary family poem.

Bert was happiest in the outdoors. For many years, he and friend Eric would head back to
Lake Superior to hunt moose in the chill of November. In later years, he hunted deer in
Opeongo, or joined friend John to hunt turkeys in Prince Edward County or Manitoulin Island.
Bert grew to love the Ottawa River. Most evenings when he had a chance, he would trailer
his boat to down the river with friend Gary where they would fish and talk and keep track of a
family of bald eagles that nested there.

Bert was an extremely intelligent and well-informed man, and he stayed current with a
multitude of news magazines and programs. Even as an elderly man, he could quote esoteric
facts about the periodic table or world history. He was very handy, and we relied on him to fix
almost anything. However he tended to value function over form, and his repairs became
known as “Bert modifications”.

Despite his gruff exterior, Bert was a secretly sentimental soul. He loved to stay up late
watching old movies. TVO’s Saturday Night at the Movies was regular fare for us, and he
was known to shed a discreet tear during the sentimental ones, particularly his favourite
Frank Capra films.

Bert was very much an animal lover. When he was a child, he fed a crow regularly, and
considered it a pet. At age 15, he brought home a puppy, and in true Bert fashion, announced
to the family they were keeping it, which they unquestioningly did. On two occasions as a
forester, he found feral cats in the bush and brought them home for us to rescue. But mostly
he loved his dogs, and there was always a loyal companion at his foot.

Our Dad could be both affectionate and stern and he definitely commanded our respect. His
grandchildren knew better than to sit in his special chair. But we also knew that no matter
what, he was always there for us, ready for anything from defending us from terrors while
babysitting, to endlessly moving belongings between apartments In Kingston and Toronto, to
doing minor household repairs during visits. We could go to him for sage advice for anything
from finances to relationships.

Bert clearly adored our mother Corrie. Although they had their moments of sparring about
ideas, he loved and respected her, and they were very much a team. After his second
debilitating stroke took him to long term care, she visited him daily without fail until she
passed away in 2018.

We are eternally grateful to our Petawawa family friends the Wilsons, the Stevens, and many
more for all they have done for our parents all these years.

We are sad to lose our Dad, but relieved that he is now free. He was a strong, kind and
ethical man, a loving father who protected us, guided us, and supported us. He loved us
beyond measure, and in return we adored him. I think right now he is sitting with Corrie by the
fire at the Slates raising a glass to the stars and giving his signature shout of joy at the
freedom. Dad, we love you and you are forever in our hearts

Soon after moving from England to Petawawa in the late 70s we met our neighbours, the Haas family and became firm friends.
They became like family and we loved them dearly. They will live in our hearts forever.
Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers.
With love,

I met your dad when he was district Manager in Terrace Bay. I was maybe 21 and from Pembroke. I lived across the road from your house at Irene Nichols Residence. I work for MNR as a Junior Ranger and came back seasonal for the MNR. Your dad was a kind man and great leader. He knew my goal was to become a RCMP and gave me

outstanding letter of reference that believe got me accepted in my life goal of becoming a RCMP. I retired after a 33 year career and brought to good use that values your dad showed everyday. When I came back to Pembroke to visit my family I always dropped in to the local MNR to see him. It was something I always looked forward too and thanked him again that our paths crossed in Terrace Bay. Your dad had a kind heart and always gave people the benefit of doubt . He had a strong handshake and what came with that was caring about people and the community and his friendship for ever. I know you are proud of dad as I am too. He worked hard and deserved any rewards or movements upward in the MNR. Thank you for sharing a wonderful man and gentlemen. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, God love your dad.
