Miles is fully committed to providing you with information about the collection and use of personalinformation provided by, or collected from, visitors while using our website, products and services.

You will always be offered the choice not to disclose your personal information or to decide what communications you would like to receive from us. However, doing so may cause certain transactions to be affected.
Processing and Disclosure
In most cases, the information you provide is added to a local or global database. In the course of processing your information, it may be necessary to transfer your information to Miles affiliates and / or third-party service providers located in the United Kingdom for the purposes outlined within this Privacy Statement. Miles does not sell, rent or give physical possession of your personal information to unaffiliated third parties outside the Miles system. Situations in which Miles may disclose your information to others include:
1. When we have received your consent to do so
2. In situations where sharing or disclosing your information is required in order to offer you products or services you desire (e.g., a job application)
3. When companies or services providers that perform business activities on behalf of Miles require such information (e.g. customer support services, market research administration or database management services)
4. When access to your personal information is necessary to facilitate business operations or meet contractual obligations
5. To comply with legal or regulatory requirements or obligations in accordance with applicable law or court order
6. In case of emergency such as to safeguard the life, health, or property of an individual
If information is shared as mentioned above, we seek to limit the scope of information disclosed to the amount necessary for the performance of the specific function. Unless otherwise precluded by legal process, we require third parties to protect your personal information and abide by applicable privacy laws and regulations.
In order to keep you informed, we may mail, email, telephone or contact you by other means to notify you of new Miles products and services or upcoming Miles special offers, events, enhancements or other relevant information that may be of interest to you. You may also receive mailings or other communications from carefully selected third parties. We always offer you the option to decline any or all of these communications by following the directions included in our emails or other communications or by contacting Miles directly.
We would like to keep all customers informed and equally able to take advantage of the benefits offeredby Miles and its strategic marketing partners. In some cases, your permission will be implied from the nature of the service requested or transaction undertaken. For example, Miles may collect and use personal information that you volunteer or behavioral data or information collected in the aggregate. In addition, your permission will be deemed given for communications from us that are necessary to fulfil transactions and services that you request.
In certain circumstances, we will seek your express permission when we collect information that is regarded under certain data privacy regulations to be sensitive in nature (e.g., information revealing racial or ethnic origin or health conditions).
ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION
To ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date, we encourage you to regularly review and update your information as appropriate (e.g. in the event your home or email address changes or you wish to add an additional method for us to communicate with you). If you are registered under our recruitment portal, you can review and update your individual profile online. Please note that in an effort to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of your personal information, you may be asked to provide proof of identity (or other authentication materials) together with the completed access request form. Access to personal information cannot be provided by telephone. Occasionally, information that you request to be removed will be retained in certain files for a period of time in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, some types of information may be stored indefinitely on "back up" systems or within log files due to technical constraints or financial or legal requirements. Therefore, you should not always expect that all of your personal information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.
