Handling of Personal Information

In principle, you may use most of the services provided through websites run by DTS INSIGHT Corporation (hereinafter referred to as "DTS INSIGHT") or on the Internet, without disclosing your personal information. For specific services, however, you may be asked to provide your personal information, in which case DTS INSIGHT or our partners shall be required to keep such information confidential. Furthermore, DTS INSIGHT is fully aware of the importance of safeguarding the privacy of such information when handling electronic information. In some cases, DTS INSIGHT may subcontract the management of a specific website, whole or a part thereof, to an outside firm that DTS INSIGHT judges to be trustworthy. The personal information of each individual user is protected also in these cases under DTS INSIGHT's rules of handling personal information.

Personal information mentioned herein and defined by DTS INSIGHT refers to information of all kinds related to each individual person --the name, residential address, mailing address, employer's name, department name, phone number, opinions, and so on --that is electronically transmitted to DTS INSIGHT by users.

In order to make your website browsing more efficient or to provide follow-up services after website browsing, DTS INSIGHT may ask users to provide personal information in the case of:

online user registration
requesting catalogs
answering questionnaires
registering subscriptions to newsletters or the like
ordering products or providing services
allow user access to limited-entry areas of this website as appropriate
other cases

DTS INSIGHT occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on its behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering user questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. DTS INSIGHT will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

In all cases, DTS INSIGHT will expressly state why such information is necessary, so that you may provide the information at your own discretion. DTS INSIGHT will not disclose personal information provided by users to any party, other than DTS INSIGHT itself or business partners, without prior permission from the users, except in cases where DTS INSIGHT provides its commissioned trader with such information necessary for a trade to be executed.

However, in cases where a settlement needs to be made for using pay services or purchasing products, DTS INSIGHT may exchange personal information with firms, including without limitation, financial institutions, in order to check the validity of bank accounts and/or credit cards. Likewise, DTS INSIGHT may disclose personal information in case such disclosure is mandatory under applicable laws or is reasonably judged to be essential in order to protect and safeguard the rights, property and safety of other users, DTS INSIGHT itself.

For the purpose of product development, identification of business needs, and sales promotion, DTS INSIGHT may use personal information, personal opinions, and the like presented by users, though such use shall be limited only to DTS INSIGHT itself and business partners.

DTS INSIGHT will accept, to a reasonable extent, such possible user requests as making corrections or deletions to personal information presented by users.

DTS INSIGHT may use the IP addresses of users recorded in the system, in order to explore the cause of or solution to any problem arising in servers, or to administer its websites.

In some cases, this specific website may contain other notices about the use and the information practices applicable.

Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, DTS INSIGHT decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving it from sellers. It is DTS INSIGHT's practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or order.
