When you place an order with us, we may collect personal information about you, including name, company, address, email address, phone number and, in rare instances, other categories of personal information, such as payment card information and date of birth.
We may ask you for and collect personal information at other times in connection with any of our Midland Sponsored Activities, including when you enter a sweepstakes or contest; participate in a promotion or marketing campaign or event; when you want to find out about products offered in your area; when you complete surveys or other questionnaires; when you participate in a user forum or blog hosted by us; or when you send us an email.
We may also collect information made publicly available through third-party platforms such as social media websites, online databases, or online directories. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications you can opt out by clicking here. After you opt out, we will not send further promotional communications, but we may continue to contact you to the extent necessary for the purposes of any information you have requested regarding our products.
Other Information Collection
Our web server logs also collects IP addresses and other unique identifiers of Users on our Website, as well as certain metrics relating to your visit(s). This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on our Website, pages viewed and Website usage information. We use this information to measure and improve the content of our Website. Aggregated information is not used in such a form that would enable direct connection of any personal information to our Website’s Users.

Third Party Websites
When you are on our Website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Midland in the United States. Additionally, if you purchase a product, your personal information may be collected by a third party company working with us. We may also contract with third party companies to perform services for us on our Website that require these companies to collect personal information (e.g. hosting a website sweepstakes, promotion or survey, conducting advertising activities, selling products, or facilitating customer satisfaction of our products).
Midland’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to facilitate order processing, to contact you if a problem arises with your order. Our Website may, from time to time, contain optional registration, promotions, surveys and questionnaires (Midland Sponsored Activity) requesting information. We use the information Users provide to help us design and build better products and to provide advice and purchase recommendations.
We also use the information we collect to help with marketing and advertising offers customized for you. This kind of advertising may be done with banner ads as well as promotional emails sent by us, or by third parties under contract with us.
We also conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us when making a purchase, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our Users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. We may share the aggregated data with our business affiliates.
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information from you only when we have your consent to do so, when we need the personal information to perform an agreement with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your privacy interests. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your interests or those of another person.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform agreement with you, we will explain why we are asking for the personal information at the relevant time and inform you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not.
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests, we will explain to you those interests.
You may have certain choices in relation to your personal information. For more information about these choices, please click here. At Midland’s discretion, we may use one or more companies to place advertisements for our products and those of third parties on our Website. Cookies and other technologies such as web beacons or tags are used to measure the effectiveness of our ads and to determine the display of content and advertising to you based on your interests both on our Website, as well as on third-party sites where you may visit. To support this interest based advertising solution, may use anonymous information about your visit to our Website. The information collected and used by this process is always anonymous, and does not enable any third-party to identify you individually. If you would prefer not to participate, you can always opt-out of this activity by clicking here.
When you place an order or provide personal information, we employ certain technical and organization security measures, such as encryption where appropriate. Encryption scrambles the information in your purchase, including your credit card number, so this information can only be viewed by Midland and our third-party payment processor. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your personal information, Midland cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from our Website, and therefore you use our Website at your own risk.
We keep personal information only for as long as required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. However, in some circumstances we may retain personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal (i.e., warranties), tax and accounting requirements. We may also retain your personal information for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it.
The Midland Website is not intended for use by persons under the age of 13. We do not seek to or knowingly collect or solicit information about children under the age of 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on our Website by users under 13 years of age. If a child under the age of 13 provides personal information to us, we encourage the child’s parent or guardian to contact us to request that we remove the personal information from our system. If we learn that any personal information we collect has been provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete the information.

As is common practice for online websites, we allow certain third-party providers to collect information about consumers directly through our Website for purposes of analyzing and optimizing our products, delivering ads, providing content, measuring statistics and the success of ad campaigns, and detecting and reporting fraud.
