Our privacy commitment
This document sets out the basis for which The MIL Limited will process any personal data we collect from you.
1. What information is being collected and how is it used?
There are various sections of the website, for which we collect different information. What we collect and how this is used is as follows:
1.1 Registered Users
Access to content and services on our website requires either registration alone or also with a subscription. You will know what information is being collected when you complete required details prior to submission (including which information is mandatory). Where you submit a response on our forum for publication, your chosen user name will be published. We will use data collected to allow access to our website and fulfil any obligations to you (where these exist).
We will also use your data to monitor for any unauthorised use of our website, content or subscriptions to our content. We may also disclose your indentity and contact details to any third party claiming material posted by you is defamatory or violates their intellectual property rights or right to privacy.
You will be given an opportunity to opt in or out (as applicable) from receiving marketing emails (and in other media) from the MIL and third parties.
1.2 All users
As you browse the website, we collect information about your use of the site including but not limited to traffic data and location data. Essentially this will normally be which pages you have visited, how long you stay online and where you are located. We will not be able to identify who you are from the information we store, but we will be able to identify where you are located - (see point 1.3 below).
1.3 What else do we collect when you use our website?
Each time you use the internet, an IP address is assigned to your computer via the internet service provider. This number may either be the same or different each time. Each time your computer requests information from our website, we log your IP address on our server and may log operating systems and browser types for system administration and to report aggregate information. We may use this in order to gather information about the website traffic and usage.
Whether you are a registered user or not, our web server collects certain information such as (a) IP address; (b) host names (c) domain name (d) time and date information as requested (e) the browser version and platform when it is requested, (f) a record of which pages have been requested.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence and use it to contact you in response and/or to update our records.
We may use all information to adhere to any legal requirements to disclose to third parties, enforce our legal rights, and protect against unauthorised access, use, activity and/or copying, either personally or via third party contractors and advisors. This may involve using your name and subscription details on a database with other publishers data for detection purposes.
1.4 What else do we use personal information for?
Other than for fulfilling any obligations to you (where these exist), on some occasions we use the information provided to produce anonymised aggregate statistics in relation to pages being accessed and the demographics of our users. We may also use it to monitor usage patterns on the website in order to improve navigation and design features to help you get information more easily. In order to help us develop the website and our services, we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. This may include aggregate data related to answers in questions on the database. The statistics however will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual. We may contact you to notify you about changes to our service.
2. How long do we keep the information we collect?
We keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil our obligations to you, protect our legal interests and undertake analysis of our website to assist you and future users.

our owners (where applicable), Licensors, contractors and advisors who must keep this data confidential;
Description or reference to an organisation, product or publication or service does not imply endorsement of that unless it is owned by the MIL Group and in which case it is subject to the disclaimers and limitations of liability herein. To the fullest extent permitted by law the material and information displayed on our website is provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties as to accuracy.as required to enforce our legal rights (including property, safety, our customers or others); fraud protection and credit risk reduction; and where our company or its assets (to which your data relates) are to be acquired by a new company, location data may be shared.
5. How personal information is stored and protected
Please do not share your password(s) with anyone.
We understand that the security of your information is important to you. We also understand that our continued success as a publisher on the web relies on our ability to communicate with you in a secure manner. We adhere to the highest standards of decency, fairness, and integrity in our operations. We use several measures to authenticate your identity when you visit our site. We also take steps to protect your information as it travels the internet, and to make sure all information is as secure as possible against unauthorised access and use (for example, by hackers). We review our security measures regularly.
Despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of other firms, "perfect security" does not exist on the internet, or anywhere else. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You should not share your user name and password with other people.
Any email between you and the MIL Group is not encrypted. It will be stored securely within our corporate firewall (see below).
5.4 Data within our walls
The information we collect about people visiting the site is stored in secure environments that are not available to any other individual or party. We have mechanisms in place to protect data. One such mechanism is called a "firewall". A firewall is a barrier that allows only authorised traffic through. It safeguards our computer systems and your information. We also use system and application logs to track all access. We review these logs periodically and investigate any anomalies or discrepancies.
6. Contact us
Please contact us if any of the data we hold about you becomes inaccurate and if you have any queries or concerns about the data we are holding about you. Also we welcome your feedback about what you like or don't like about our sites. Your feedback is stored on a secure internal system that allows the appropriate person to respond to you. Please contact us through our Contact us section.
