We use this information to find out which areas of our website visitors prefer based on the amount of traffic to those pages. This provides the basis how we arrange modify the content.
It’s important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking such as Google Analytics. However, we will not use individuals’ information but the aggregate information to improve our website and service, which is stated below.

MINISO Canada sometimes holds contests in which we ask for some contact information like the email address and phone number, the demographic information like the age, gender and location, and customized information like preferred products. In some case visitors may be asked to fill out a brief survey or upload a photo, which are not limited, to exchange for allowing such visitor to enter the contest. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary and to notify you if you are a winner. Visitors may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitor’s experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. Any contests will be subject to special rules which will be identified on this website.
