Disclaimer, Terms of Use,
and Ownership of information

We make our best efforts to accurately capture trends in marketplace activity. That said, ProPurchaser.com Inc. assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of any information on its website.

Moreover, all decisions made with these data are done entirely at the user’s risk.

Specifically, ProPurchaser.com Inc. disclaims all liability for loss or damage, including but not limited to loss or damage arising from interruption of service, errors or inaccuracies in data, viruses, system incompatibilities or other harmful components. ProPurchaser.com Inc. makes no representation that the results obtained from use of its data, charts, tools, articles, or products will be successful for your purposes or will satisfy your requirements in terms of correctness, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or otherwise. The terms “loss” and “damage” as used herein shall include, but not be limited to loss of profits, or increase in input costs, and all other direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of use of this website or its services.

There are two types of information contained in this website. The first type is commodity price trends and other cost indexing information provided by ProPurchaser. These data are for the use of our members only. Users may not distribute or share this information outside of their organizations in any way whatsoever, without written consent from the president of ProPurchaser.com Inc. The only exception to the above is when members use the ’email graph’ feature on this website. When using this feature, they are permitted to email certain graphs to colleagues and suppliers for the expressed purpose of preparing for (or engaging in) negotiations with suppliers. It is important to understand that ProPurchaser is not a price reporting agency. Our numbers are not precise. They are intended to indicate the direction that prices are trending in over time. We do not recommend using any of our data as the basis for establishing formula
pricing between buyers and sellers.

The second type of information is created by our members themselves, using either ProPurchaser’s should-cost modeling tool or its self-built data tool.. These data, analyses, and results are the property of our members, and remain so even if they decide not to continue their membership. We will never show, share, or reveal this information in any way to third parties.


‘ProPurchaser’ is protected as a trademark in Canadian Patent and Trademark Law, and by International Trademark and Intellectual Property Laws and Treaties as applicable. The ‘ProPurchaser’ trademark has been in effect and continuous use since December 15th, 1999. Unauthorized use of the ‘ProPurchaser’ trademark is strictly prohibited.

Protection of your personal information

We are committed to protecting your privacy and personal information. We collect certain personal information (name, email address, telephone number, etc.) in order to provide you with a secure, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This information is stored on the Microsoft Azure Cloud and is protected and maintained by company-managed IT experts. Your personal information will never be shown, sold, shared, or revealed in any way to any third party.

Revisions to these terms and conditions

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms of Use (‘Updated Terms’) from time to time. Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, we will provide reasonable advance notice before the Updated Terms become effective. You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Service, and that your use of the Service after the effective date of the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms of Use and any Updated Terms before using the Service. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Service from that point forward.
