This Privacy Policy explains how Miele Hong Kong Limited (“Miele”) handles the personal information that you provide to us by various means including but not limited to the following:

  1. via the Web Sites or App owned and controlled by Miele which link to this Privacy Policy (together referred to as "Miele Web Site(s);
  2. member, warranty registration forms (whether completed via Miele Web Site or physical channels);
  3. event or activities enrolment forms (whether completed via Miele Web Site or physical channels);
  4. order forms (whether completed via Miele Web Site or physical channels);
  5. enquiry forms (whether completed via Miele Web Site or physical channels);

Unless otherwise specifically noted, this Privacy Policy does not apply to: (i) Any web sites that do not link or connect to this Privacy Policy; or (ii) third-party web sites to which Miele Web Sites may link-up with but have no control of them.

Your use of Miele Web Sites is subject to this Privacy Policy and the Online Terms and Condition. Please read this Privacy Policy before using Miele Web Sites or submitting any personal information to us through any channels.

What is "personal information" as used in this Privacy Policy?

"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could be used to identify you. Examples of personal information include your name, your e-mail address and your telephone number, gender, age, date of birth, and shopping preferences.

How does Miele collect information?

Miele collects information in two ways:

• Personal Information You Submit:

Miele collects personal information that you enter into data fields on Miele Web Sites or through real physical channels. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Miele programs, contact Miele customer service, or respond to Miele surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Miele with any information that is not specifically requested.

• Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:

Miele Web Sites may collect information about your visits to Miele Web Sites without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk by a website. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels or Internet tags) help Miele recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Miele Web Sites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the web site you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Miele Web Sites easier by allowing Miele to provide better service, customize Miele Web Sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve Miele Web Sites. Certain features of Miele Web Sites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and Miele will not connect additional identifiable information with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies. With respect to limiting or disabling tracking technology please see below “What choices do I have about how Miele collects and uses personal information about me?”.

In what circumstances and for what purposes might Miele collect and use personal information?

Miele will use your provided personal information to respond to your questions, to process your applications as a registered customer, to provide you with products and services which you have requested, to process your orders purchased at our real physical channels and web sites, to carry out prize draws, games or competitions you have entered, to provide you with efficient customer service and to prevent or detect of crime. Miele may use certain identifying technologies to allow that Miele Web Site to "remember" your personal preferences (based on the personal information that you entered, such as sections of that Miele Web Site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID). We may use your personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Miele’s products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions if you provided us with your prior opt-in for such purposes:

Does Miele consolidate personal information?

Miele may consolidate the personal information of customers who use Miele Web Sites. In addition, we may consolidate information in a non-identifiable form (aggregate/anonymous data) to help us better design Miele Web Sites and Miele products, to enhance our research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.

What choices do I have about how Miele collects and uses personal information about me?

You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that Miele receives about you by choosing not to provide any personal information into forms or data fields on Miele Web Sites or physical channels . Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of Miele Web Sites or forms may ask whether you wish to opt into our contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you. You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want Miele Web Sites to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Miele Web Sites that use tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.

Who will have access to personal information about me?

Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of authorized Miele employees, by certain designated companies with which Miele may conduct joint programs, and by authorized third parties with whom Miele contracts to carry out business activities for Miele. We always conduct training for our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is Miele’s practice to seek your consent where required by applicable law if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information. In addition, Miele’s practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Miele.

Does Miele share personal information with third parties?

Except as otherwise stated in this Section, Miele will not transfer your personal information to third parties unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into this disclosure. Miele may disclose your personal information without your opt-in to third party service providers which assist us with our business activities. It is Miele’s practice to require such third party service providers to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Miele and in accordance with Miele’s instructions. Miele further reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities or when otherwise required by law. In the event Miele sells one of its product lines or divisions, Miele will only transfer your personal information to the buyer subject to your consent where required by applicable law so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services.

How does Miele secure personal information?

It is Miele’s practice to secure each Miele Web Site that collects personal information; however, the confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet. Miele cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to Miele Web Sites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks. In addition, Miele Web Sites covered by this Privacy Policy will display a warning whenever you link to a web site that is not controlled by Miele; you should check the privacy policies of such third-party web sites before submitting personal information.

How may I correct personal information or delete it from current customer records?

With your support Miele will keep personal information accurate and up-to-date. You may request to remove, amend or correct your personal information. Please notify us of your wishes by contacting us in one of the ways specified below.

How long will Miele store personal information?

In general, Miele will only store your personal information for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, subject to applicable data retention periods imposed upon Miele by applicable laws.

How can I contact Miele?

If you have questions about the scope, use, amendment, or deletion of personal information that you have provided to us, or if you would like to opt out of future communications from an Miele business or a particular Miele program, please contact us by clicking on the "Contact Us" link on the Miele Web Site you are visiting.

In all communications to Miele, please include the e-mail address used for registration (if applicable), the Miele Web Site address on which you provided any personal information about which you have questions or concerns, and a detailed explanation of your request.

5. Marketing cookies

For the purpose of retargeting/remarketing and for the placement of online advertisements we use so-called marketing cookies from third parties.

Retargeting or remarketing refers to technologies that allow users who have previously visited a certain website to see suitable advertisements even after they have left the website. For this purpose, it is necessary to recognize Internet users beyond their own website, for which cookies from the corresponding service providers are used. In addition, the previous usage behaviour is taken into account. For example, if a user looks at certain products, these or similar products can later be displayed as advertisements on other websites. 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.

5.1 Facebook / Meta

On our website we use marketing cookie(s) provided and/or used by Meta, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook” or “Meta”).

Facebook cookies are used if you have a Facebook account, use the Facebook Products, including the Facebook website and apps, or visit other websites and apps that use the Facebook Products (including the Like button or other Facebook Technologies). The Facebook cookies allow us to track your activities on our website in order analyse the effectiveness of our conversion funnel and to regularly improve our website. Furthermore, the Facebook cookies allow us to use the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature of Facebook. This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") as part of their visit to the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. Please find more information to Facebook Conversion Tracking, Facebook Custom Audiences and related data processing activities in our privacy notice.

In addition, the Facebook cookies enable Facebook to offer the Facebook Products to you and to understand the information they receive about you, including information about your use of other websites and apps, whether or not you are registered or logged in.

The Facebook cookies receives the following types of data: Http Headers, Pixel specific Data, Button Click Data, Optional Values and Form Field Names. Further information about Facebook's cookies can be found here.

5.2 Google

As already outlined above, on our website we use various cookies for analytics and/or marketing purposes that are provided and/or used by Google. Further information about Google's privacy practices can be found at The further details table contains cookie names with variable identifiers, where <wpid> is web property ID or the measurement ID for Google Analytics 4, consisting of 10 characters (numbers and letters), [_<customname>] and <property-id> are property IDs in Google Analytics 3 (Universal Analytics), consisting of digits in the following pattern: UA-XXXXXXXX-X.

5.2.1 Google Ads

Google Ads is an online advertising platform developed by Google, where advertisers pay to display brief advertisements, service offerings, product listings, video content, and generate mobile application installs within the Google ad network to web users. It can place ads both in the results of search engines like Google Search and on non-search websites, mobile apps, and videos.

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

We also use Google's conversion tracking in this context. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a 30-day conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device. This cookie is not used for personal identification. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Google Ads customers.

You can disable interest-based Google ads on Google in your browser by clicking the "Off" button at or by opting out at

5.2.4 Other Google Marketing Platform services (Campaign Manager 360, Display & Video 360, Search Ads 360)

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.

Further information about the Google Marketing Platform is available at You can also find further information at the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at

5.3 Microsoft Ads Remarketing and Conversion Tracking

We only learn the total number of users. Microsoft collects, processes and uses information via the cookies, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms.
