What does "personal information" mean?
For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "personal information" means information about identifiable individuals and includes contact information (for example; name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number), demographic information, household information, preference information and transaction-related information. Personal information does not include business information, such as an individual's business address and telephone number.

Collecting personal information
The Uplands collects personal information from individuals on a voluntary basis through surveys, contest entry forms, registration forms, questionnaires, transaction documents or other similar documents.

Using personal information
The Uplands uses personal information that it collects for the following limited purposes:

  • To communicate with individuals

  • To conduct, process and complete transactions with customers
  • The Uplands may, from time to time, contact individuals by electronic format, regular mail or telephone for any of the purposes set out above.

Disclosing personal information
We knowingly disclose personal information when we have received your consent to do so or under limited circumstances specifically described when personal information is collected. However, we will disclose personal information without such consent when such disclosure is permitted or required by law.

We will not knowingly disclose personal information to any third parties except:

  • To our agents, professional advisors, promotional and marketing agencies, and to any other third parties in order to complete transactions, to process data and to service our customers. These third parties and their respective employees are only provided with such personal information as is necessary to perform the services for which they have been contracted and are restricted from using the personal information for any purpose other than as described above.
  • The Uplands does not sell, rent or trade personal information that it collects. In the event of the sale of The Uplands project, personal information may be one of the transferred business assets.

Retaining personal information
At such time as personal information is no longer required for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy or other statutory requirements, such personal information will be made anonymous or destroyed.

PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
To ensure the security of our customers' personal information we have designated a Privacy Officer to be responsible for the care and control of personal information. Although we take great care and appropriate measures in protecting the security and confidentiality of personal information stored in our databases, information transmitted over the internet can be intercepted by unauthorized third parties. The Uplands does not assume any liability for any unauthorized use, misuse, alteration or interception of personal information over the internet by third parties.
