Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing local storage.
When you enable a location-based service, we may collect information about your location.

How We Protect Your Information
McKesson Canada has established appropriate physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to protect the information we collect from or about our users. We restrict access to personal information to McKesson Canada employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information to process it for us, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations.
We will protect personal information stored on the website’s servers from unauthorized access using commercially available computer security products (e.g., firewalls), as well as carefully developed security procedures and practices. Although we use recognized industry safeguards to protect personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration and every effort is taken to ensure that no one else will see or obtain your personal data, complete confidentiality and security is not yet guaranteed over the Internet. Internet use and communication is subject to interception, loss and alteration. You acknowledge and agree that McKesson Canada shall not be responsible for any damages you may suffer as a result of the transmission of personal information over the Internet, and that any and all communications will be at your own risk.
If you have any questions about security or have reason to believe that your interaction with us is not secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at email@example.com.

These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on this website, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. When you use a link to go from this website to another website, our Privacy Notice is no longer in effect. We encourage you to read the privacy notice of each website you visit.
