If Michelin collects personal data, Michelin will inform you as the data subject at the latest at the time of collection and in any case before use within the framework of the defined purposes.
Michelin undertakes to process only personal data that are appropriate, relevant and proportionate to the purposes for which they are collected. Michelin will take all necessary measures to ensure that personal data are processed correctly and updated as necessary.

Michelin is an international group with databases in the various countries in which it operates. Michelin may transfer your personal data within the group to one of its databases or to its external partners outside your home country.
As the scope of data protection varies worldwide, we do not transfer your personal data to Michelin Group companies or to third parties outside the European Union, unless these companies offer the same or a similar level of protection for personal data. For transfers within the Michelin Group, the Group applies internal policies for the transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area.
Transfers of data to suppliers outside the Group are governed by contracts that include the European Commission's standard clauses to ensure a similar level of protection as in your home country.

This form requires you to provide certain personal information, including your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. This personal data is collected and processed in order to improve the interactive services and to meet your requirements.
Users who have signed up for these services may access the information provided upon registration and correct or delete the information provided at any time.

The Michelin website may contain links to third party websites. Michelin shall delete such links immediately if it is brought to Michelin's attention that the contents of the website do not comply with the applicable legal system.
