(a) to understand its customer needs regarding MIURA’s products;

LIMITING THE COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
DISCLOSURE, PROCESSING AND RETENTION
MIURA does not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to anyone else except, when the Identified Purposes require MIURA to disclose the personal information to:
(a) an agent of the customer;
(b) agents of MIURA acting on its behalf for the Identified Purposes;
(c) a public authority, to avoid or minimize danger to life or property and
(b) a third party to which disclosure is required by any law, regulation, legal process or government request.
Your information may be stored and processed in Canada, the United States, or in any other country in which MIURA or its agents maintain facilities. By using this web site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. After your account becomes inactive, MIURA will keep your personal information only for those purposes which are established by law, and for archival record purposes.
ACCURACY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
MIURA will use reasonable efforts to keep customer personal information accurate for the Identified Purposes. Customers are responsible for informing MIURA about changes to their personal information. MIURA will update personal information when necessary to keep it accurate or else provide to its customers the facilities to make such updates.
OPENNESS OF POLICY
ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION
MIURA will normally afford you a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in your file upon request through the MIURA web site or to the Privacy Officer made by you after providing sufficient identification. If MIURA is not able to provide access to some aspect of a customer’s personal information, it will provide reasons for denying access such as; that by doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party, or that it is attorney–client privileged communications, or that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of law, or that its disclosure could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual. Customers have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information be amended as appropriate, and MIURA will promptly correct such personal information or provide the means for you to do so directly.
