Conditions of Use
By accessing our Website, communicating with us or making a sale to or a purchase from us you agree to be bound by this policy. You can find the types of information we collect about you in the operation of our business below in the section entitled The data we collect about you. If you do not agree to be bound by this policy you should not access or view this Website or make contact with us or make use of our services.
If you are in the EU, you also have the right to raise a privacy concern with the relevant Data Protection Authority. However, please consider contacting us first.
Miravet collects a variety of personal data in the operation of its business. We use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
- “Identity Data” includes first name, last name, client identifier, title.
- “Contact Data” includes billing address, delivery address, email address, emails and telephone numbers.
- “Financial Data” includes bank account details.
- “Transaction Data” includes details about payments to and from you and other details of products and services you have sold to or purchased from us.
- “Profile Data” includes client identifier, purchases or orders made by you and feedback.
- “Usage Data” includes information about how you use our Website, products and services.
- “Marketing and Communications Data” includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.
These groups of data may be collected in the following ways:
- If you decide to contact us (this may be via email, phone or our Website) or make use of personalised services (e.g. contacting us or by subscribing to a newsletter or publication), then you will be asked to submit Identity Data and Contact Data which is necessary for us to provide that service or handle your query. We will then create Marketing and Communications Data. This is completely voluntary.
- If you make a purchase from or a sale to us then you will be asked to supply Identity Data, Contact Data and Financial Data. We will also keep records of Transaction Data and we will create Profile Data to enable us to process orders and manage records. Please be aware that your employer in making a sale to or a purchase from us may provide us with your personal information. This allows us to conduct know your client checks and conduct credit reference checks.
- If you ask us to send you newsletters, apply for a job or make other communications, we rely on your active consent in order to do so and you will be asked to provide Identity Data and Contact Data. You may opt out of receiving communications at any time.
- If you make any personal information public, including via social media such as LinkedIn, we may collect and use this information.
If any form provided by Miravet collects your personal data we seek this information because we think it will help us to give you a better quality service. You do not have to provide such information if you do not wish to do so.
Where we need to collect personal data for instance by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods). In this case, we may have to cancel an order you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
When you provide us with your information, you acknowledge that this information may be stored and processed on servers located anywhere in the world, including either inside or outside of the USA or the European Economic Area.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
- Direct interactions. You may give us your data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us. This includes personal data you provide when you:
- email our employees;
- offer to sell or purchase goods or services from or to Miravet;
- subscribe to any publications;
- request marketing to be sent to you; or
- give us feedback or contact us.
We only keep your information for as long as is necessary and then information is deleted.
You can ask us to stop sending you publications or marketing messages at any time. Where you opt out of receiving these publications or marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product sale or purchase.
Miravet strives to keep your personal information accurately recorded. You have the right to obtain a copy of the information we hold about you and/or to ask us not to process your information (or not to pass your information to third parties). If you would like copies of your information, or if you would like us to correct factual inaccuracies, or if you would like that information to be blocked or deleted from our records, then please contact Legal Department, Quai Bezanson-Hugues, 14, 1204 Geneva, Switzerland. or e-mail us using the details in the ‘Contact’ section of this Website.
How we use your personal data
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
- Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you, including the performance of know your client checks and conducting client on-boarding and the processing of orders (for example financial management).
- Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
- Where you have requested us to do so (e.g. subscriptions).
- Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.
- Where we conduct risk/credit management in line with Miravet policies and processes.
- Where we need to establish, protect or defend our legal rights.
Miravet does not share your personal information with third parties for marketing or promotional purposes.
Miravet may share your personal information in the following ways:
- From time to time your personal information may be transferred amongst Group entities or to third party agents, representatives or suppliers of Miravet for the purposes of system maintenance and support.
- Miravet may be required to disclose your personal information to: (i) respond to duly authorised information requests from the police and governmental authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, subpoena or court order; (iii) help prevent fraud or to enforce or protect the rights and properties of Miravet or its subsidiaries; or (iv) protect the personal safety of Miravet employees, third party agents or members of the public.
- Circumstances may arise where Miravet decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of your personal information to prospective or actual buyers (or receive it from sellers). It is Miravet’s practice to seek appropriate protection for personal information transferred in these types of transactions.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Is your information transferred?
Personal information that we collect may be transferred across international borders for further processing, storage or use in accordance with this policy. Transfers may occur between Miravet including their affiliates, third party agents, representatives, customers and suppliers. Please do not send us your information if you do not want it to be transferred or stored in this way.
We ensure your personal data is protected by requiring all our Group companies to follow the same rules when processing your personal data.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the European Economic Area, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents or contractors who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and provided they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long do we keep your information?
We will only hold your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements, before making it non-identifiable or deleting it. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
In respect of job applications, personal information about speculative or unsuccessful candidates will be held for 12 months after the recruitment exercise has been completed, before being destroyed or deleted. We may retain de-personalised statistical information about applicants to help inform our recruitment activities, but no individuals are identifiable from that data.
If you send us any ‘contact us’ messages, we will delete or de-identify these messages once we have finally satisfied your query.
If you choose to unsubscribe from a service, we may keep a ‘suppression list’ containing your details so we know you have unsubscribed.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your legal rights below for further information.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. If you wish to exercise any of the rights you have please contact us using the ‘Contact’ page accessible in the left hand menu or contact our Legal Department in the following ways:
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Postal address: Miravet SA, Quai Bezanson-Hugues, 14, 1204 Geneva, Switzerland
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
