Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information is any information that concerns you individually and would permit someone to contact you. (For example, your name, address, telephone/fax number, social insurance number, e-mail address or any information you submitted to Misencil that identifies you individually.) Misencil will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. Therefore, if you do not want Misencil to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, do not submit it. You can visit and browse the Misencil website without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. You may also choose to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself, which may be maintained as described below. Misencil may collect personally identifiable information about you when you register, for example to enter our contests, join our mailing lists or become our customer by creating an account or when completing an information request form. You may then be asked for personal information such as, but not restricted to, your name, telephone numbers, e-mail address, mailing address, date of birth, concerns, goals, which brands and products you use, and security information (user name and password). You may also be asked additional marketing-related questions by completing questionnaires, surveys and profile data to help us better understand your needs and those of potential customers. You may also be requested to give your delivery and billing address, credit card number and expiration date when you place an order.

Misencil uses the anonymous browsing information collected automatically by its servers primarily to help it administer and improve its website.

Automatic Collection of Anonymous Information
When you visit the Misencil website, like when you visit most other websites, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged, which may include information about the type of browser you use, the server name and IP address through which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the site, the pages you access while at the Misencil website, and the Internet address of the website, if any, from which you linked directly to the Misencil site.

Disclosure of Information
Misencil does not provide personally identifiable information to third parties for their use in marketing directly to you. Misencil may use affiliated companies to help it maintain and operate its website or for other reasons related to the operation of its business, and those companies may receive your personally identifiable information for that purpose. Misencil may also disclose personally identifiable information about you in connection with legal requirements.
“Cookies” and Advertisers
The Misencil website’s server, or the servers of companies that are used to operate this site, may place a “cookie” on your computer in order to allow you to use the website and to personalize your experience. A “cookie” is a small piece of data that can be sent by a web server to your computer, which then may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow Misencil to recognize your computer while you are on its website and help customize your online experience. Cookies are also useful in allowing more efficient login for users, tracking transaction histories and preserving information between sessions. The information collected from cookies may also be used to improve the functionality of the website. Most web browser applications (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Firefox) have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie or prevent cookies from being sent. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this website.
Misencil maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to help guard personally identifiable information. If transactions are offered on the site, transaction information is transmitted to and from Misencil in encrypted form using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections to help protect such information from interception. Misencil restricts authorized access to your personal information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information to provide products or services to you and those persons you have authorized to have access to such information. Please be aware, however, that any e-mail or other transmission you send through the Internet cannot be completely protected against unauthorized interception.
Misencil reserves the right to modify or supplement this policy at any time.
