www.brandpointsplus.ca is owned by Greenbridge Foodservice, Inc. and operated by Real Cool Synchrony. www.brandpointsplus.ca is a website where foodservice operators (“Users”) can visit to maintain a loyalty/continuity program through which they can earn points by purchasing qualifying items from participating Greenbridge Foodservice Members and redeem them for rewards. While we encourage the interactive nature of online media, we strive to educate Users about how to appropriately safeguard their privacy while on the Web. By enrolling in Brand Points PLUS Canada, Users agree to the limited use of personal information provided as outlined in this document.
Our information collection practices are described below.
What Information Is Collected?
Brandpointsplus.ca collects the company name, contact name, company address, province, zip, business phone number, email address, and segment detail.
The User’s email address may be used to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities (e.g. newsletters and surveys). This information may be used to contact the User in regard to any point redemption orders. Brandpointsplus.ca does not condition a User’s participation in any of our online activities based on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. You can visit the site without disclosing any personal information about yourself. However, if you want to participate in the loyalty program or enter contests or sweepstakes, we will need you to share with us certain personal information about yourself. The personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, company name, first and last name, street address, email address, telephone number (e.g. home, work, mobile, and/or fax), and segment detail.
We may also collect other personal information that will be identified on the applicable page(s) of the site. Personal information collected by brandpointsplus.ca for such contests or sweepstakes is securely maintained and used only for conducting the contest or sweepstakes.
Brandpointsplus.ca may provide Users the opportunity to send emails to co-workers or friends. In addition, brandpointsplus.ca features information about products that Users may be interested in and from time to time will send, on request, email messages to co-workers and/or friends to let co-workers and/or friends share their interest. We may ask for a first name and email address, but we do not require Users to submit personally identifiable information about your co-workers or friends in order to send an electronic message to them. The email address is used only to deliver the message and is not retained.
Brandpointsplus.ca may also provide the opportunity to send email to us. We may ask for first names, but we request no personal identifiable information, except an email address, which we use solely for responding to messages and/or requests and is not retained after the email response is sent.
Use and Disclosure of Information
Brandpointsplus.ca uses or may use personal identifiable information that Users provide for such purposes as sending requested electronic postcards and email messages on their behalf, conducting contests or sweepstakes, and responding to their questions regarding our products and services. Brandpointsplus.ca (and Real Cool Synchrony) currently does not disclose to third parties personal identifiable information that Users provide, except from time to time, we may transfer, disclose, or share such information with third parties who may be engaged by us specifically to handle and deliver certain online activities (e.g. conducting contests and sweepstakes). Such third parties have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but are prohibited from using it for other purposes. Additionally, if all or substantially all of the assets relating to brandpointsplus.ca are transferred or sold to another entity, personal identifiable information submitted to us may be transferred to the acquiring entity. Finally, we may also disclose personal identifiable information to third parties in order to comply with law or requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce our Terms and Conditions, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our website, Users, and others.
Cookies and Log Data
Cookies are information files that your web browser places on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. Cookies cannot damage User files nor can they read information from a User’s hard drive. Cookies allow websites to “remember” Users’ activities on a website as well as Users’ visits to a site. At brandpointsplus.ca, cookies are used to determine the number of unique visitors to our website over a given period and to remember User screen names so that the need for multiple log-ins is eliminated. We do not store any personal information into cookies nor do we link or combine information collected through cookies to any personal information that Users submit online when participating in our activities. You can, of course, disable cookies (or require a warning prompt) on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser.
Log data collected on web servers both within brandpointsplus.ca’s control and under the control of brandpointsplus.ca’s third party ad service provider (who is required to maintain such data on a confidential basis), supplies brandpointsplus.ca with aggregate information about the number of visits to different pages on our site. Brandpointsplus.ca uses such aggregate information to improve access to our content based on Users’ browsers and operating system types in order to make our content available to as many Users as possible. We do not link the log data collected to the personal information that Users submit online when participating in our activities.
Your Data Security
