Information useVisitors submit information to us via the various forms and questionnaires on our site, such as their contact details (name, address, e-mail address, etc.), demographic information (age, gender, etc.) and personal profile data (favorite forms of recreation, etc.). We use this information that people send to us when they register on our site for our company's marketing and promotional purposes. From time to time, we disclose this information to our business partners who are responsible for sales promotion.
We do not release or sell any information to a third party that could identify any individual. We only send information about our company and its activities to the address, e-mail address or via the telephone or fax number supplied to us by site visitors if we have their explicit permission to do so. If a site visitor does not wish us to e-mail them, we will immediately stop once notification to do so is received.
For information on how this works, please read the section below entitled "Selection / cancellation of services."Visitors can request information and services from us by filling out the various forms on this site. We look after the visitor contact information sent to us via these forms, and use this contact information when we send out information about our company. If necessary, we will use this information to contact site visitors. We use this information that we have gathered to process the service requests that we receive from site visitors. We do not disclose this information to any third party who is not involved with our business.
In special cases we may disclose visitors' information. These might be: a) when the visitor is an individual who may (intentionally or unintentionally) cause damage or disruption to the rights or assets of Velbon Corporation or any members of the Velbon Group outside Japan or other visitors, etc. to this site; b) when the visitor is an individual who is at risk of suffering damage from such acts; and c) when we have reasonable grounds to do so in the course of legal action.
SecurityThe security of all private information is extremely important to our company. Unfortunately, at present it is not possible to guarantee that information sent to us via the Internet is 100% safe. For this reason, although we make efforts to safeguard the security of the visitor's personal information, we can not secure or guarantee the security of information that visitors send to us or the information that we gather from visitors. For this reason, we ask that visitors take responsibility for the information that they send to us.
IP address useIP addresses are numerical values that Internet service providers automatically assign to a visitor's computer when the visitor goes surfing on the Internet. When the visitor accesses our site, our company's server records the visitor's IP address. We report this data to our system managers and advertisers, and we gather IP addresses for the purpose of monitoring our site.
We do not link IP addresses with information that can identify individuals. In other words, even though we keep records of visitors' access to our site, we do not identify the visitors. In certain circumstances, in order to enforce our site use conditions and to protect our services, our site and our customers, we may receive the cooperation of the visitor's Internet service provider and identify the site visitor on the basis of their IP address.
