What/Why do Miele collect personal information?  Miele collects personal information in order to conduct its business, to provide and market our services and to meet our legal obligations.  Personal information is information or an opinion relating to an individual which can be used to identify that individual. We collect the personal information we need to provide the products and services we offer, which includes a broad range of MIELE products, after sales support, delivery and installation service etc.  

In general, the type of personal information Miele collect and hold includes (but is not limited to): names, addresses, contact details, occupations and other information which assist in conducting our business. In most cases, if personal information requested is not provided, we may not be able to supply the relevant product or service.

Where practicable, we will collect personal information directly from the individual concerned. Sometimes we will collect it from a third party, such as an Authorised Miele Agent or Authorised Miele Service Partner. The type of information we collect, and where we get it from, will depend on the product or service. If you deal with us by telephone it is possible your call may be monitored or recorded. 

The purpose of doing this will depend on which part of our business you are dealing with. We may record or monitor your call for training, quality and verification purposes.

We use your information to provide you with better customer services and products.

We will use and disclose the personal information we hold about you for the main purpose for which we have collected the information (for example, if you request a Product related Service or Repair we will disclose the information to an Authorised Miele Repair Partner for the purpose of completing the repair or service works).  

In general, Miele may use and disclose your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to conduct our business; 
  • to provide and market our services; 
  • to communicate with you;
  • to purchase from you; 
  • to comply with our legal obligations, and
  • to help manage and enhance our services.

We may also use personal information for planning, product development, research and to seek feedback on our products and services. We may use and disclose the personal information for a secondary purpose related to that main purpose where the individual would reasonably expect us to do so.  Otherwise, we will keep personal information confidential unless:

  • you agree; or
  • we are required or allowed by law to make the disclosure (for example, to comply with an order of a Court or Government Agency request).

About whom do Miele collect personal information? 

The type of information Miele may collect and hold includes (but is not limited to) personal information about: 

  • clients, business associates and potential clients and their employees; 
  • suppliers and their employees; 
  • prospective employees, employees and contractors; and 
  • other people who come into contact with a member of Miele. 

How does Miele collect Personal Information 

Miele will generally collect personal information by way of orders placed, quotations, letters and electronic communications, forms filled out by people, online queries, face-to-face sessions, interviews, business cards, telephone conversations and from third parties. Miele may be provided with personal information about an individual from a third party, for example when an order is placed with a Miele Authorised Agent for Miele product.

We may pass your information to other Miele agents

Where we outsource our functions, contractors or agents, it may be necessary for members of the entities to which we outsource to access your personal information to continue to provide products and services to you. Miele contractors and agents will be bound to adhere to the relevant privacy handling legislation, policies and practices in relation to the use or disclosure of your personal information.  If any personal information we need is not available, or not provided, we may not be able to provide the relevant product or service.

Miele may disclose your personal information to:

  • other members / personnel within Miele;
  • other companies or individuals who assist Miele in providing services or who perform functions on their behalf (such as mailing houses and Authorised Service Agents) 
  • courts, tribunals and regulatory authorities, and
  • anyone else to whom you authorise us to disclose it. 

Miele may also collect personal information from these organisations and individuals, and we will deal with that information in accordance with this Policy.

We aim to keep your information up-to-date

We rely on the personal information we hold about you in conducting our business. Therefore, it is important that the information we hold about you is accurate, complete and up-to-date. This means that from time-to-time we may ask you to tell us if there are any changes to your personal information. If you find that information we hold about you is incorrect, please contact us immediately.

Miele will correct information it has about you if it discovers, or you are able to show, the information is incorrect. If you seek a correction and Miele disagrees that the information is incorrect, Miele will provide you with its reasons for taking that view. 

How to gain access to your Personal Information

You may request access to your personal information via making a request in writing and directing it to:

               The Privacy Officer 

               Miele New Zealand Limited

               8 College Hill

               Freemans Bay, Auckland 1011, NZ

Following the receipt of your requests, our Privacy Officer will be in contact and provide you with an estimate of the charge and confirm whether you wish to proceed with accessing your information. Miele may charge a fee for informing an individual what information it has about them. This fee will be charged to cover Miele’s reasonable costs in locating and supplying the information.

Generally, Miele allows individuals access to the information it holds about them within a reasonable time after they have made a written request for access. In some instances, Miele may refuse to give an individual access to requested information. If it does so it will provide that individual with the reason it has refused them access. We may also decide to provide you with limited information. If we do so, we will let you know why your request has been limited. This may be because the process you are asking about is commercially sensitive or the request is vexatious or frivolous.

Joint Information

Where you have a joint facility with an individual or a number of individuals we will permit access to the personal information and the operation or conduct of the facility but will not provide you access to the other individual’s personal information unless the person you have the joint facility with has provided their consent or the law or a court order requires us to.

Management of personal information 

The security of your information is important to Miele and we take all reasonable precautions to protect your information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Miele personnel are required to respect the confidentiality of personal information and the privacy of individuals.  Miele takes reasonable steps to protect personal information held from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, for example by use of physical security and restricted access to electronic records. Where Miele no longer requires your personal information for a permitted purpose, we will take reasonable steps to destroy it. 

Some of the ways we protect your information include but are not limited to:

  • security of external and internal premises;
  • restricting access to personal information to employees who need it to perform their day-to-day functions;
  • providing employee training in relation to privacy and confidentiality;
  • data encryption technology and firewalls; and

These are personalised advertisements that are adapted to the needs of individual users. For this personalised advertising, it is not necessary for the user to be identified beyond recognition. The data used for retargeting or remarketing is therefore not merged with other data.

Marketing cookies may also track user engagement with the ads ultimately shown. This is in order to avoid unwanted duplicate advertising and to track the amount of times ads result in some form of ad conversion (e.g. an ad being clicked on or an actual sale).

The legal basis for the processing of personal data through marketing cookies is consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future, by managing your settings at the very top of this Policy.

We use such technologies for the placement of online advertisements. For the placement of the advertisements we use third party providers. Details of the third parties (and their tools) who provide and/or access marketing and targeted cookies are explained below.

Further information about Google Ads can be found here.

        5.2.2 Google Remarketing function

Google's remarketing function allows us to serve ads to our users on other sites within the Google Ads network (called "Google ads" or ads on other sites) based on their interests. To this end, we analyse user interaction on our website in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. This number, known as a "cookie," is used to track the visits of these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular computer, not to identify an individual, and no personal data is stored.

You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by installing the plug-in provided under the following link:

         5.2.3 Google Conversion Tracking

Our website also uses other services of the Google Marketing Platform (formerly "Google Doubleclick"). Campaign Manager 360 allows us to run ad campaigns and measure their performance. Display & Video 360 helps us manage display and video campaigns. Search Ads 360 is utilized to manage search campaigns across various search engines.  These services use cookies to deliver ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from receiving ads more than once.

Google uses a cookie ID to determine which ads are served in which browser and can thus prevent them from being shown more than once. Google may also use cookie IDs to track conversions, which is whether a user sees an ad and later visits the advertiser's website to make a purchase. These cookies contain no personal information.

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. According to Google, the integration of these services provides Google with the information that you have viewed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address and save it.

In addition, cookies enable us to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have viewed or clicked on one of our ads on Google or on another platform (conversion tracking) ("floodlight"). Google uses this cookie to understand the content that you have interacted with on our sites so that we can later send you targeted advertising.

You can prevent tracking by changing your browser software settings (e.g., disabling third party cookies), disabling conversion tracking cookies by blocking cookies from the domain in your browser settings, with respect to interest-based ads from providers that are part of the About Ads self-regulatory campaign, by clicking on the link or by clicking on the link. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of the website to their full extent.
