We collect information from you when you register on the Website, sign up for a newsletter, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or communication such as e-mail or participate in another Website feature. When registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other information. You may, however, visit our Website anonymously. Like many websites, we use “cookies” to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our Website.

How Do We Use Your Information?
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, enter a contest or promotion, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the Website or use certain other Website features in the following ways:
If you have opted-in to receive our e-mail newsletter, we may send you e-mails. If you would no longer like to receive promotional e-mails from us. If you have not opted-in to receive e-mail newsletters, you will not receive these e-mails. Visitors who register or participate in other Website features such as marketing programs and ‘members-only’ content will be given a choice whether they would like to be on our e-mail list and receive e-mail communications from us.
How Do We Protect Visitor Information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Do We Use “Cookies?”
We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Website visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your Website experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
Do We Disclose the Information We Collect to Outside Parties?
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term “outside parties” does not include Takara Belmont USA or its affiliates. It also does not include Website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our Website policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
