This website (“Website”) is owned and operated by Apex Utilities Inc., formerly AltaGas Utilities Inc. (“AUI”). Our head office is located at 5509 45 Street, Leduc, Alberta T9E 6T6. The online services (“Services”) made available and provided through this Website are made available and provided by AUI or its third party service providers.
All legal and equitable rights of AUI with respect to the Website and the Services are expressly reserved.
You acknowledge and agree that the Internet, email, and other means of electronically communicating and transacting, as well as the operation of software, algorithms, websites, and online services, may not be fully dependable or error-free, and you use the foregoing solely at your own risk.
AUI will have no liability for loss of, damage to, or alteration of data or information in transit over the Internet or via email or other means of electronic transmission, download or upload, or for failure or errors related to software, algorithms, websites, and online services, including this Website and Services.
AUI recommends the use of appropriate anti-virus and security software and measures, and other protective mechanisms, including being fully educated and informed as to online risks and the possibility of scams and fraud. Any unprotected online communication is not secure and is not confidential, and may be lost, not received, intercepted, or altered. Please do not send confidential or sensitive information to us except by protected means, including the use of our Services.
The Services are only available where AUI operates and provides services and are not available where AUI is unable to perform or provide Services, or where the Services are prohibited by law.
The Services available through this Website include:
- Personal Profiles: You may create a personal profile by providing your personal information to us, with your consent, which will allow us to identify you and give you access to the Services you choose to use. Your personal profile may include login information such as usernames and passwords to keep your profile secure and to confirm your identity.
- Payment Profiles: You may create a payment profile in addition to your personal profile by providing us with your banking and credit card information. This will allow you to use our Services to pay your accounts with us.
- Making Payments: You may make payments on your account using the Services as follows:
- You may pay on a one-time payment basis using your personal profile, or, if you do not have a personal profile, by providing confirmation of your identity, along with your credit card information, in which case you will have to re-enter the required information each time you make a payment.
- You may create a payment profile so that your banking and credit card information is already saved in your payment profile, making it easier and more convenient for you to make payments.
- Our Services may allow you to set up automatic payments so that your payments are made regularly on an automatic basis without any further action on your part. You can revoke this at any time, subject to any required notice period we may have communicated to you when you set up automatic payments.
- Web Forms: You may complete online forms (“Web Forms”) to set up profiles, make payments, communicate with us, or provide information to us, or to request other specific services such as installation of a gas line, or connection to our services.
Where you are an existing customer, or in some circumstances where you have made inquiries of us with respect to becoming a customer, Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) provides that we have your implied consent to send you commercial or promotional messages. It is our policy to rely on such implied consent where it exists should we wish to do so. Recipients of commercial or promotional messages from us may unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe function in such messages, in the customer portal, or other online services.
