Unified Purchasing Group of Canada, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as either, “UPGC”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information on this website (the “Site”).

Shareholder information

This website also provides purchasing, informational and other services to UPGC shareholders.  Because this website provides general information and Shareholder specific information and services, this website contains pages that are accessible by the general public and pages that are only accessible by Shareholders.  

This site also contains pages that are devoted to, and accessible by, each Shareholder on an individual basis.  Commercially reasonable security precautions have been put into place to help prevent the access of such pages by others. Some of the Shareholder-specific data comes from information UPGC already has and information submitted directly by Shareholders through this site.  

With respect to the Shareholder specific information, UPGC will continue to collect and use such information, in a manner consistent with the mission of UPGC and UPGC’s general Shareholder Privacy Policy, which will be posted on this site when adopted by our Board of Directors.  

With respect to Shareholder transactional information, and to the extent transactions take place on this site as opposed to a linked site, UPGC will collect and use such information to carry out the transaction.  To carry out the transaction, UPGC will be required to disclose the information, to certain of its employees and agents and to appropriate third parties who are a part of the transaction chain. UPGC may also collect and analyze such Shareholder transactional data to evaluate suppliers and distributors and to otherwise best service its Shareholders and fulfill its mission.  

UPGC will not share a Shareholder’s information with another Shareholder or any other party not referenced in this privacy statement or the UPGC’s Shareholder Privacy Policy. UPGC often aggregates certain Shareholder information and provides it to other parties in such a manner as to not identify any particular Shareholder, or otherwise uses such information in the aggregate, in a manner consistent with the mission of UPGC and the Shareholder Privacy Policy.
