This Policy may be updated by MicroPower at any time, by way of a notice on the website and/or by email, if the User has opted to receive communications from MicroPower.
MicroPower may collect information actively input by the User at the time of registration and, in addition, information automatically collected when using the pages and the network, for example, the identification of the commercial establishment used, IP address with date and time of the connection, among others.
There is, therefore, the handling of two types of personal data: (i) those supplied by the User; and (ii) those collected automatically.

Through your internet browser settings, it is possible to disable the automatic collection of information by means of certain technologies like cookies and caches, as well as on our own website, particularly with regard to cookies. However, the User should be aware that, if these technologies are disabled, some of the resources offered by the site, that depend on the handling of the aforementioned data, may not work.
The purpose of the information collected by MicroPower is to enhance the User pages, tailoring these pages to their preferences, as well as the provision of products and services, including updates, security and problem resolution, as well as the provision of support and improvement in the development of MicroPower products.
Moreover, the information collected may be used for the purposes of advertising, namely the sending of MicroPower products, promotions and discounts, as well as the publication of live and virtual events, including webinars.
