We also use contact lists and other information we may obtain from third parties.

So that we can provide our users with the most efficient and enhanced, personalized service, we (and third party service providers acting on our behalf) use cookies and other tools (such as web analytic tools) to automatically collect information about you when you use this website, subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and applicable data laws and regulations. The types of information collected automatically may include:

Personal Information

By “personal information” we mean information that identifies you individually, such as names, mailing addresses, email addresses, and gender.

We may collect personal information from you in connection with email services we offer, surveys we undertake, in order to respond to your inquiry, or to participate in online forums or committees.

How Do We Use Collected Information?

We may use the information we collect to respond to your inquiries, improve our products and services, and operate our business.
The following are examples of how we may use the information we collect:

How Do We Share Personal Information?

We may use both anonymous, aggregate demographic data and any personal information we collect for marketing or other business purposes.

We share anonymous, aggregate demographic information (such as gender, age, income, hobbies, interests, etc.), and anonymous information obtained from cookies and similar technologies, with our subsidiaries and our business partners. We do not share your personal information with any third parties outside of NAGASE Group unless you specifically consent to such sharing.

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through this website or any other service available online), that information can be collected and used by others. For example, if you use chat, forums, bulletin boards or message boards, or if you post personal information online (such as your email address, photograph, etc.), you may receive unsolicited messages from others. We have no control over this use of your personal information.

Important Note

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as compelled by applicable law, regulation or legal requirement; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of this website, our digital apps, and our property and assure adherence to our Terms of Use; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; and to fulfill your requests.

Where Do We Store Your Data?

Your information is stored either in our databases or in the databases of our service providers, both of which servers are located in Japan. In some cases, and mainly for technical reasons, those databases may be stored on servers located outside of Japan (including outside of the European Union).

Do We Transfer Your Data To Other Countries?

This website and its associated servers and computers are located in Japan. We may transfer the information we collected to servers located outside the country in which you live or to subsidiaries based in other countries so that they may process the information on our behalf. In such a case, rigorous and relevant measures, physical, organisational, procedural, technical and related to staff, ensure the safety and the confidentiality of personal data. By using this website or otherwise providing NAGASE with personal information, you agree to us doing so in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection laws and regulations.

How Long Do We Store Your Data?

We will retain the information we collected for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law.

How Do We Use Cookies?

We may use “cookies” in connection with operation of this website. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by this website server. Cookies are used for recordkeeping purposes‒the stored information can be retrieved by this website server when you return to this website.

Cookies allow us to personalize or regulate the use of this website, and also permit us to automate the access and data-entry functions of this website (e.g., login information), and to tailor the appearance or presentation of this website to your preferences or interests.

Web browsers are usually set by default to accept cookies but you may easily change this by modifying the settings of your browser. However, please note that should you choose to disable cookies, you may be unable to use part of the functions of this website.

How Do We Use Web Beacons?

We use web beacon technologies in order to assess traffic patterns, determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, determine unique visitor counts and create an improved user experience on this website. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are commonly used in the industry and on many major websites. We also may include web beacons in promotional email messages or electronic newsletters in order to determine the effectiveness of those campaigns.

When a user accesses a page or email containing a web beacon, notice of that access is generated and sent to us. Because web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, users who do not want this information considered in association with anonymous cookie information should set their browsers to turn off cookies. (When users turn off cookies, web beacon technologies will still detect users' visits anonymously, but this information cannot be associated with other user information and is disregarded).

How Can You Control Your Personal Information?

If you prefer not to receive traditional mail or other offline promotions from us, please email: nagase-personalcare@nagase.co.jp

If you prefer not to receive email marketing or other online promotions and advertising from us, or if you want to opt-out of any sharing of your personal information with third parties not owned by us, please email: nagase-personalcare@nagase.co.jp

This website will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

We will try to implement your opt-out requests promptly, but you may still receive promotional information from us due to printing and mailing schedules. Please forgive any delay.

You have the right to obtain information on all of your stored personal information, to receive, to review, and if necessary to amend or erase. To do this, please email: nagase-personalcare@nagase.co.jp. The deletion of your personal data will be completed unless we are legally obligated to store the information.

Security of Your Personal Information

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect. No system can be completely secure, however, and we do not guarantee that unauthorized disclosures and access will not happen.

Changes in Corporate Structure

In developing our business, we might sell certain assets, or the company (or parts of it) may be sold, merged or otherwise transferred. In such transactions, user information, whether personally identifiable or otherwise, may be one of the transferred assets.
