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.
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?
How Long Do We Store Your Data?
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: email@example.com
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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: email@example.com. 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.
Visitors and Subscribers Outside Japan
You should be aware that many countries/districts do not afford the same legal protection to personal information as you might enjoy in your country/district of origin. While your personal information is in another country, it may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities in that country in accordance with its laws. Subject to such lawful access requests, we promise that anyone processing your personal information outside your country of origin is required to implement measures to protect it and is only entitled to process it in accordance with NAGASE’s instructions.
IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO ANY COLLECTION, PROCESSING, TRANSFER OR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION, PLEASE DISCONTINUE USE OF THIS WEBSITE.
