At Les Aliments RMS Can-Am inc. (herein called "Can-Am"), we are keenly aware of the trust you place in us and our responsibility to protect your privacy. As part of this responsibility, we let you know what information we collect when you use our services, why we collect it and how we use it to improve our relationship. Your privacy is important to us. We recognize that an individual's right to privacy is an essential right to be protected. We understand the importance in maintaining anonymity and protecting personal information in our care and control. Our relationships are founded on trust and we are committed to maintaining that trust. This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") is a statement of principles and guidelines concerning the protection of personal information of our individual clients and individual service providers (with the exception of our personnel, whose personal information is collected, used and disclosed in accordance with our Personnel Privacy Policy).

For these reasons, our Privacy Policy provides all the safeguards as standardized in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, (the "PIPEDA"). It confirms our dedication to protecting privacy and maintaining the trust that individuals have placed in Can-Am. This Privacy Policy is our guarantee, that we will maintain the confidentiality and privacy of the personal information entrusted to us.

We have 6 privacy principles that describe how we approach privacy and user information across all of our services:

1. Use of information to provide our customers with valuable products and services.

2. Protection of our supplier's personal information.

3. Distribution of products that reflect strong privacy standards and practices.

4. Make the collection of personal information transparent.

5. Give users meaningful choices to protect their privacy.

6. Be a responsible steward of the information we hold.

CONSENT

BY SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO CAN-AM, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY COLLECT, USE AND DISCLOSE SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THE PRIVACY PREFERENCES YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO US AND AS PERMITTED OR REQUIRED BY LAW. Subject to legal and contractual requirements, you may refuse or withdraw your consent to certain of the identified purposes at any time by contacting us. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you or continue to provide you with certain services or information that may be of value to you.

1. How Personal Information is maintained

Definitions

To assist in understanding this Privacy Policy, Can-Am has set out some basic definitions to use when reading and interpreting the principles below:

a. Collection: obtaining personal information from any source, including third parties, by any means.

b. Consent: the granting of voluntary permission regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information for defined purposes. Consent can be either express or implied.

c. Disclosure: to make known personal information to a third party.

d. Personal Information: information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title, or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.

e. Use: the treatment, handling and management of personal information by and within Can-Am.

2. Who are we?

Can-Am is a fruit and vegetable distribution company in the greater Montreal area, and importer of specialty items from national and international markets. Through its national and international distribution networks, we have the ability to provide complete service offering needed to cover the greater Montreal area, including the Laurentians.

This Privacy Policy applies to our collection, use and disclosure of personal information regarding the clients and consumers of our products and services.

3. What personal information do we collect?

Canadian privacy legislation defines personal information broadly as information about "an identifiable individual" or as information that allows an individual to be identified. The types of personal information that we may collect from you from time to time include: your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, your forwarding address (e.g. during a vacation), previous address(es), payment information (for billing purposes), mailing preferences, delivery instructions, and individual customer service preferences (such as "do not solicit"). In addition, from time to time, we may ask you to provide us with more detailed information regarding your interests and background. For example, we may sometimes ask our customers to complete surveys in order to get a better sense of who they are and what issues, products or services may be of interest to them and our readership. Finally, from time to time, we may acquire demographic and other information about you (e.g. your interests) from an outside organization, but only if you have previously agreed to allow such an organization to disclose the information to companies such as Can-Am.

4. Why do we collect your personal information?

We collect your personal information for the purposes listed below:

a. To provide the product and/or service you requested

If you are a customer, we use your name and address (postal and/or email) in order to deliver the product and/or service you requested and to follow up with you about the transaction (i.e., send a bill, statement of accounts, products available, etc.). If you enter into a contest offered through our sales team, we use your personal information to administer the contest on our own behalf.

b. To process payment

Your credit card number, debit card number, or banking information for pre-authorized payments is used only for processing payments and for presenting you with payment options - not for marketing purposes.

c. To send you information

From time to time we may send you further information about Can-Am, its offers, or other available products.

d. Other purposes

In addition, from time to time, we may use your personal information for the following purposes:

• To detect and protect Can-Am and other third parties against error, fraud, theft and other illegal activity, and to audit compliance with Can-Am policies and contractual obligations;

• To understand your needs and preferences, including to contact and communicate with you and to conduct surveys, research and evaluations;

• To obtain audited statements regarding numbers of subscribers per publication;

• To engage in business transactions, including the purchase, sale, lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, securitization or financing involving Can-Am;

• For any other purpose we may indicate to you from time to time.

5. To whom do we disclose your personal information?

We may disclose your personal information to the following third parties in the following circumstances:

a. Disclosure to Service Providers

We may disclose your personal information to other companies that provide services on our behalf, including agricultural farmers, auditors, our software developers (including website developers and hosts), data processing, document management and office services. In addition, we may disclose your personal information to an organization or individual retained by Can-Am to evaluate your creditworthiness or to collect debts outstanding on an account or to our auditors. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

b. Disclosure to Trading Partners

From time to time we may make their list of customers available to other carefully screened organizations (such as, other distributors, growers and charities) that want to let you know about a product or service that might interest you. The material to be sent to you is reviewed by us before the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) are released to ensure the organization is reputable and material is appropriate and not misleading.

c. Disclosure in Business Transfers

Can-Am may be involved in the sale or transfer of some or all of its business. As part of that sale or transfer, Can-Am may disclose your personal information to the acquiring organization, but will require the acquiring organization to agree to protect the privacy of your personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

6. Law Enforcement and Legal Disclosure

Can-Am may disclose your personal information to a government institution that has asserted its lawful authority to obtain the information or where Can-Am has reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity, or to comply with a subpoena or warrant or an order made by a court, person or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information, or to comply with court rules regarding the production of records and information, or to Can-Am's legal counsel.

If you would prefer for us NOT to share your information as described above in sections 4(a)-4(d), simply inform us.

7. Control of your personal information

At Can-Am, we want you to be able to maintain control over how we use your personal information. In particular:

a. You may have the right to "opt out" of some or all of the identified purposes, uses and disclosures listed in sections 3 and 4 above.

b. You always have the option to instruct us not to use your name, address, e-mail address, etc. beyond providing you with the product, service or information you requested.

c. E-mail communications will always include an identification of the sender and an "Unsubscribe" option.

d. We regularly use the Canadian Marketing Association "do not mail/do not call" service to remove customers from marketing campaigns. To add your name to this list, see "Canadian Marketing Association" below.

As mentioned above, we may not be able to provide you with our services if you withdraw your consent to our use of your personal information.
