Michelin North America, Inc. (“Michelin”), Michelin Retread Technologies, Inc. (“MRTI”), and Oliver Rubber Company, LLC (“Oliver”) are committed to protecting your privacy.

 

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to all information submitted by you on this website, and it explains the type of information we may collect and how we may use it. Please keep in mind that this Policy only applies to MichelinB2B.com and does not address information that we might obtain from places other than these websites.

 

Since other web sites (including those to which we link) have their own practices, we encourage you to ask questions and provide information only to those sites whose practices you understand and trust.  We may revise our Policy from time to time, so please check this page periodically for updates.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

 

            To provide customized content to our customers, we collect personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways, including tracking your activities through your log-on ID. We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us, such as may be required through the site registration procedure.

 

            The method we employ to collect anonymous information is through the use of “cookies.” A cookie is a small file [typically only a few Kilobytes in size] that a web site can deliver to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You may also decide to set your browser not to accept cookies. If you decide to do this, you will not be able to access the MichelinB2B.com web site.

 

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

 

            Your personally identifiable information that you voluntarily submit to us may be shared with affiliated companies. We do not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to any third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or to protect our interests.

 

USE OF INFORMATION

 

            Your personally identifiable information that you voluntarily submit to us may be shared with and stored on a database controlled by third parties who have been hired by us to provide limited services on our behalf. Agents or contractors of Michelin who have access to your personally identifiable information are required to keep the information confidential and are prohibited from using this information for any purpose not previously disclosed to you.

 

            We use personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information for site administration and for the purpose of performing the services for which such date was collected.

 

            We do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties. We do not otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or to protect our interests.

 

            Even though our information practices may change from time to time, we will not use your information in a manner not previously disclosed to you in our Policy. We will always provide you with notice by posting any Policy changes on this web site, and you will have an opportunity to reject such changes.

 

UPDATING OR CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION

 

            Requests for changes to the Registration Information should be made by Authorized Users directly to their Administrators. In the case of self-registered users, you may contact us via the telephone number located on your custom home page of MichelinB2B.com.

We also restrict the number of Michelin personnel and contractors who can access this data.

 

            Unfortunately, no system can ensure complete security and you should take steps to protect your information and transmissions, such as keeping your log-in and password secure and making sure you completely log out when you finish using the site. In the unlikely event of a breach of security despite our efforts, we cannot be responsible for the interception.
