To whom does this Privacy Notice apply?
This Privacy Notice applies to the Riken Optech.com site, as well as to the listed websites of the Riken Optech Corp.
What is Personal Information?
Personal information is generally defined as any information about an identifiable individual, with the exception of that individual’s business contact information. Business contact information includes such information as would typically be found on a business card (name, title, business address, business phone number, etc.).
Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain members of the European Union, such as Italy, Austria and Luxemburg, also consider company data to be regulated by their respective data protection laws. Accordingly, in jurisdictions where this is the case, this Privacy Notice applies equally to Personal Information and to company data.
How and why do we collect your Personal Information on the Riken Optech site?
We collect Personal Information from you on the Riken Optech site only for the purposes we identify to you at or prior to the time we collect such information. In general, however, these purposes include (i) communicating with you regarding our products and services, (ii) providing you with top-level customer service in response to your inquires, and (iii) improving your online shopping experience. We will always collect your PersonalInformation by fair and lawful means, either with your consent, or as otherwise permitted or required by law. We will not seek to collect more Personal Information than is necessary for the purpose(s) we identify at that time. We will retain your personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary for fulfilling the purposes for which we collected that information.
Does the Riken Optech site collect Personal Information from you using technology?

With whom will we share your Personal Information?
How will we protect your Personal Information?
