MIC respects the privacy of the people we deal with and we uphold high standards of privacy practice and security. This policy explains how we handle personal information and how we interact with you online.
Whenever we handle personal information, we take steps to ensure that appropriate standards of privacy practice and security are applied.
We only collect personal information about you (other than sensitive information, which is discussed below) which is reasonably necessary to:
Personal information we may collect relating to your MIC shareholding can include information such as your name, address details, telephone numbers, shareholding balance, tax information, bank account details and email addresses.
We do not generally collect sensitive information about you unless required by applicable laws or rules. Sensitive information includes information or an opinion relating to:
Neither we or our service providers use or share any of the above mentioned information for any purpose other than the administration of your MIC shareholding, or as otherwise disclosed to you when the relevant information was collected.
We keep personal information in physical and electronic records, at our premises and the premises of our service providers, which may include processing or storage in the cloud, which may mean in practice that this information is stored outside the U.S. Where this occurs, we take steps to protect the security and integrity of personal information.
We also keep records of our interactions with you (including by telephone, email and online).
We only use and disclose personal information about you for the purpose for which it was disclosed to us or related purposes which would reasonably be expected without your permission.
We do not sell personal information to other organisations.
We may share personal information inside MIC, and may disclose personal information outside MIC as required by applicable laws or rules, such as those relating to Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing.
Laws and rules regarding the use of personal information may vary by jurisdiction. MIC complies with applicable laws and rules in the relevant jurisdiction.
We may be compelled to disclose your personal information by applicable law or legally enforceable court, regulatory or government order.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we hold is as accurate as possible. You are able to contact us at any time and ask for its correction if you feel the information we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete.
We use security procedures and technology to protect the information we hold. Access to and use of personal information within MIC seeks to prevent misuse or unlawful disclosure of the information — this includes internal policies, auditing, training and monitoring of staff.
If other organisations provide support services, we require them to take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure the privacy of the information provided to them.
You can contact us to request access to the personal information that we have about you. In normal circumstances we will give you full access to that personal information. However, there may be some legal or administrative reasons to deny access. If access is denied, we will provide you with the reason why.
When you visit MIC websites you will browse anonymously.
If you are an anonymous visitor, any information we collect is not capable of personally identifying you.
