We use your personal information solely for the purposes for which it was collected.

Uniprix does not have access to your file or to the personal information contained in your Aeroplan file. Uniprix has access solely to the member's card number and details of the transactions made at Uniprix locations using the card. However, should you voluntarily give us your Aeroplan card number when subscribing to a newsletter or otherwise, we may then link the personal information contained in your Uniprix file with your Aeroplan card and the details of the transactions made. This would help us to provide you with more personalized offers, for instance those exclusively for Aeroplan members.
