Effective Date: September 18, 2017

Your privacy is important to us. We provide this notice to you to explain how our website collects information from you, how it is used, how it is shared, and the choices you can make about the way the information obtained through this website is collected and used.

This notice applies only to personal information collected by Milestone from users of our website at www.milecorp.com (our “Site”), including through the Cortera online credit application service provided through this Site (the “Online Credit Application Service”). This notice does not apply to information collected by Milestone in other ways, including offline. Our Site contains links to other websites operated by third-parties, including Cortera to access the Online Credit Application Service. Milestone is not responsible for the online information practices or policies of such third-party websites, including Cortera or the Online Credit Application Service, and this notice does not apply to that website or the Online Credit Application Service.  This policy (this “Privacy Policy”) lays out our policies and procedures surrounding the collection and handling of any such information that identifies an individual user or that could be used to contact or locate him or her (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”). 

 

1) Personally Identifiable Information We Collect Online

We collect and store names, email addresses and phone numbers from users who may provide their information on this Site to subscribe to our newsletters, request a brochure or email us.  If you submit a credit application to Milestone through the Online Credit Application Service, we collect and store information including, but not limited to, names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, addresses, social security numbers, and dates of birth. We do not collect or store any other personal information about you, except what you voluntarily provide through this Site, the Online Credit Application Service or submit via electronic communications to us.

We collect IP addresses of devices accessing our services in our server logs, as well as information like internet domains, the date and time of a visit, and the pages accessed on the Site. If applicable, we store this information as a verification of your acceptance of the terms and conditions of Milestone’s equipment rental and leasing agreements. This information is also used for diagnostic and analytic purposes in order to improve the services we provide.

Cookies: Like most commercial websites, our Site uses a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information regarding how site consumers utilize the Site. Cookies and local storage are data files placed within a browser on your device when the device is used to visit the Site. These technologies store a unique identifier for your device that can be used to recognize your device whenever you visit the Site, and may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, to evaluate and improve the functionality of our Site, to help us deliver content specific to your interests, and to improve browsing experience by preserving information so users will not have to re-enter it for each visit.  If you do not want to accept cookies, you can block them by adjusting the settings on your Internet browser. If you choose to disable cookies on your device, you may not be able to use all of the features of our Site, including features associated with creating a user profile or making an online booking if and when such functionality becomes available. You can find more information about cookies and how they work at www.allaboutcookies.org.

“Do Not Track” Signals:  Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (DNT) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. Our Site does currently respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.

 

2) Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information

We use your PII to create your account, to communicate with you about your credit application and Milestone’s equipment rental and leasing agreements, and to bill you. We may use your PII to notify you of new features or products or to provide you marketing communications about our new products and services as well as third-party products and services that we think may be of interest to you.  We also use that information to the extent necessary to enforce the Terms of Use of our Site and to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

 

3) Protection of Personally Identifiable Information

We employ the following data security tools to protect PII:

  • In certain areas of the Site, Milestone uses industry standard SSL encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions.
  • Account information is password protected.
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We restrict access to PII to select Milestone employees and third-party contractors who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use our Site at your own risk.

 

4) Third-Party Access to Personally Identifiable Information

We may disclose PII to attorneys, collection agencies, business credit reporting agencies, or law enforcement authorities to address potential Site Terms of Use or violations or breaches of Milestone’s equipment rental and leasing agreements, other contract violations, or illegal behavior, and we disclose any information demanded in a court order or otherwise required by law or to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.  We may share the PII that we collect with third parties that perform functions on our behalf and our affiliate companies to provide analytics and Site usage information; process transactions and payments; to provide marketing and promotional assistance; and provide other services related to the operation of our business. When we share your PII with our business partners and other authorized third-party service providers so that they can perform certain services on our behalf, these service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purpose.  Finally, we may transfer PII in connection with a corporate transaction, like a merger or sale of our company, or a sale of all or substantially all of our assets or of the equipment you rented or leased from us, or a bankruptcy. As noted in Section 3 (Protection of PII) above, we compile Site usage statistics from data collected through cookies. We may publish those statistics or share them with third parties, but they don’t include PII. We may use third-party services to help us provide and improve our service.  Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do not share PII with third parties.

 

5) Your Rights Under California Law

Residents of California who have provided Milestone personal information have the right to request from Milestone a list of the third parties to which Milestone has shared certain personal information, as defined under California Civil Code Section 1798.90(e), during the preceding year for third-party direct marketing purposes.  We will respond to one request per California resident per calendar year, according to California Civil Code Section 1798.83.   To submit such request, contact Milestone by mail at 3050 West Clay Street, Suite 300, St. Charles, MO 63301 or by email at legal@milecorp.com.  Please allow 30 days for a response.

 

6) Accessing and Correcting Your Personally Identifiable Information

You may request to correct, review or delete any of your PII held by Milestone by contacting us directly at legal@milecorp.com.  Under certain circumstances we may not remove or be able to remove certain information.  Any retained information will continue to be subject to the terms of the Privacy Policy.

 

7) Amendment of This Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or on a successor page. The new version will become effective on the date it’s posted, which will be listed at the top of the page as the new Effective Date.
