The University of Manitoba (UM) uses PBC Guru, a third party service provider hosted outside of Canada (specifically in the USA), in order to provide the UM Alumni Book Club as a service to our alumni and friends. The University of Manitoba (UM) makes PBC Guru available to you for your personal use on a voluntary basis. PBC Guru is primarily responsible for the book club’s operations and administration. By clicking to join the book club, you will be leaving the UM website and going to the PBC Guru website.
PBC Guru will share your contact information and participation in the book club with the UM for the purposes of updating the university’s alumni records, and assess interest and engagement in alumni programming. The UM uses alumni contact information to inform alumni and friends about university news, events, and initiatives, including fundraising.
