NAGASE AMERICA CORPORATION’S PRIVACY POLICY

(Use your browser’s “Print” button to keep a copy of these terms)

Nagase America Corporation is strongly committed to protecting your privacy and providing a safe online and digital experience for all of users. Because we gather certain types of information about and from users so that we can better serve your needs, you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of this information. This Privacy Policy discloses what information we gather, how we use it, how to correct or change it, and what steps we take to safeguard personal information provided to us both online and offline.

Your use of the Nagase America Corporation website (the “Website”) constitutes your agreement with the terms of our Privacy Policy:

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?

You can visit the Website, navigate throughout the Website, and read the content published in the Website without giving us any “personal information” (defined below).  So that we can provide our users with the most efficient and enhanced, personalized service, we may request information about you in certain circumstances, and collect certain information automatically. This information might include, for example, your name, email address, phone number, and physical address.  We also use contact lists and other information we may obtain from third parties.  We may also collect, directly or through the use of a third party, certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our web pages, such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, your IP address, your device identifiers, your Internet or wireless service provider, and location-based information.

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 use information you provide to respond to your inquiries, improve our products and services, and operate our business. For example, we may use personal information so that we may display or send custom, personalized content to our website visitors and to send newsletters, mail, emails, features, promotional material, surveys and other updates, information or offers to our users.  A user may, at any time, opt out of receiving promotional offers by mail, telephone or email by clicking here: info@nagaseamerica.com. We also use collected information to evaluate and administer our products and services, fulfill customer inquiries, respond to any problems that may arise, such as difficulties in navigating our Website or accessing certain features, as well as to gauge user trends to determine what products and services are most popular with users.

HOW DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Nagase America Corporation may use both anonymous, aggregate demographic data and any personal information you provide for internal 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 business partners.  We do not provide personally identifiable information to any of these third parties in providing these summaries and reports.

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through Nagase America Corporation’s 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. Nagase America Corporation has 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 our 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.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Nagase America Corporation may use “cookies” in connection with operation of the Website.  Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by the Nagase America Corporation Website server.  Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes—the stored information can be retrieved by the Nagase America Corporation Website server when you return to the Website.

Cookies allow us to personalize or regulate the use of our Website, and also permit us to automate the access and data-entry functions of the Website (e.g., login information), and to tailor the appearance or presentation of the Website to your preferences or interests.  In general, we do not use cookies to track the navigational habits of identified users without the user’s consent.

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 the 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 e-mail marketing or other online promotions and advertising from Nagase America Corporation, or if you want to opt-out of any sharing of your personal information with third parties not owned by Nagase America Corporation, please click here: info@nagaseamerica.com.

Nagase America Corporation websites 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 by mail for up to 60 days due to printing and mailing schedules, and up to 10 days for email; please forgive any delay.

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.

Our Website and its associated servers and computers are located in the United States. All matters relating to these sites are governed by the laws of the State of New York in the United States. Any information you provide through the Website will be transferred to, and used in, the United States. By visiting our Website and submitting information, you unambiguously consent to the collection, processing, transfer or use of your personal data, as described in this Privacy Policy.  If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of the Website.

We recommend that you check the policy when you visit our site to be sure you are aware of and understand our current policy; when feasible, we will post specific summary of material changes in our policy.
