Non-personal or Aggregate Information that we collect: We may collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, pages viewed, browser type, duration and frequency of visits or other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual (“Aggregate Information”). Aggregate Information obtained in connection with the Site may be intermingled with and used by us in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Site, including both offline and online sources. Aggregate Information may be shared by us with third parties for marketing advertising or other purposes, including analysis of the Site for purposes of improving its shopping environment.
Clickstream: As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a website’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the Site. We may collect and use clickstream data as a form of Aggregate Information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate throughout the Site and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. This information will be used to improve our Site and our services. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregated, and will not intentionally contain any personal information.
Information Usage: We will only use your personal information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personal information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you. We may use your personal information as follows: (i) in connection with any purchases you make on the Site; (ii) to respond to your inquires or requests; (iii) to provide you access to privileged areas of the Site or to personalize the Site for you or otherwise to improve the services we offer; (iv) to send you emails and newsletters from time to time with information about our Site and products, special offers, promotions, and other news; (v) we may permit our vendors and subcontractors to access your personal information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us; (vi) we may disclose personal information as required by law or legal process; (vii) to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors and (viii) we may transfer your personal information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of Akogare.
Cookies: Our Site may pass a “cookie” (a string of information that is sent by a website to reside on your system’s hard drive and/or temporarily in your computer's memory blocks). The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a particular page. You may set your browser to decline cookies. If you do so, however, you may not be able to fully experience some features of the Site. Additionally, we may include small graphic images in our email messages and newsletters to you in order to determine whether these messages were opened and whether any links contained in these messages were viewed.
Security: We are committed to using commercially reasonable efforts to maintaining the security of your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we adhere to industry standard practices and procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect. Although we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect the security of your personal information and our system, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no transmission via the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Site. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Site.
