The development of new communication tools requires that particular attention be paid to the protection of privacy. We are therefore committed to respecting the confidentiality of the personal information we collect.
We collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information. The type of information collected depends on the type of interaction we have with you.
Personal information is information that identifies an individual or information about an individual who can be identified. We sometimes collect personal information such as:
You cannot be identified as a person with non-personal information. For example: we can ask for your postal code to assess delivery charges.
We sometimes collect non-personal data when you visit our websites, such as the type of browser you are using or the URL redirect.
We may collect information about a client and summarize it in a non-personal cumulative format for research and statistical purposes. We can summarize our data to determine, for example, that a certain percentage of contest entrants consist of men aged 18 to 25.
You may choose not to give us your personal information. In this case, we might not be able to supply you with the product, service or information you are requesting.
We collect the following information:
The information in bold font is required in order to obtain a user name for our website. Information in italics is optional and used only for statistical purposes. The other information is required for orders (billing address and delivery address).
In other cases, we can obtain your implied consent when we can reasonably conclude that you have given your consent through an action you have taken or an action you have decided not to take. This normally occurs if and when the purpose of the use of your personal information is reasonably apparent to you.
The personal information we collect is obtained through forms and your interaction with our website. We also use, as indicated in the previous section, cookies or log files to gather information about you.

After making a purchase from a Millenium Micro affiliated dealer, we may send you a follow-up letter in order to thank you or to contact you to make sure you are entirely satisfied with the delivery, configuration or installation of your new product. We can use the contact information obtained in the physical store, online or through our call centres to do occasional surveys and market research.
These surveys are done on a voluntary basis and you can refuse to participate.
Some pages of our websites, such as the discussion forums, facilitate interactive discussions between users and Millenium Micro staff or agents working on our behalf regarding products and services that can be purchased on websites. The client evaluation feature serves as a ranking system that allows you to share your opinions about a product. These forums and public assessments are available to all visitors to the website and you must use discretion when you enter any information. Make sure you do not give out any personal information.
Millenium Micro offers a wide range of newsletters and promotional material. Should you choose to subscribe to them, your contact information (name and email address) will be collected. This information will be used exclusively to send you newsletters and promotions you requested. You can unsubscribe at any time with the UNSUBSCRIBE link located at the bottom of the newsletter or by clicking on the link called “UNSUBSCRIBE”. Our list of subscribers will never be sold or given to third parties.
We occasionally launch contests or promotional offers. If you choose to participate, you may be asked to supply your contact information as well as optional information regarding surveys (for example: product preferences). The data from contest entries is only used to administer the contest and to contact you if you win.
For research purposes, we can also summarize contest information so that identifying personal participants becomes impossible. All contests and promotions are subject to this confidentiality policy and to rules specific to each contest or promotion. Some contests are managed by third parties and are subject to the third party’s rules.
When you visit our website, you may choose to use the “Send to a friend” option which lets you tell a friend about products that interest you. The information you supply is used in a single email to your friends, inviting them to visit our site. Your friends will not be added to a mailing list and they will not receive other emails from us unless they have agreed to receive such communications from us. When you use the “Send to a friend” tool, you communicate directly with the friend and you agree that you, and not Millenium Micro, are responsible for this communication. If you give us personal information about another person (such as an email address), you are declaring that you have obtained all necessary consent from this person, authorizing us to use the personal information for the intended purposes.

If a manufacturer were to recall a product for safety reasons, we could give out your contact information (but only your name, address and phone number) to the manufacturer so that they may inform you of this recall and provide details on replacement or repair programs. Transfer of your data only takes place in the case of recalls that might endanger your safety or the operation of the product you purchased.
