Privacy Policy

Re-Amemiya created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and security.  We want to make your experience on www.gruppemdirect.com (the “Site”) as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use this Site’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.  Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy and terms and conditions.

 

 I.          WHAT THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVERS

This policy covers how Re-Amemiya treats personal information that it collects and receives.  “Personal information” is information like your name, address, email address, or phone number that is not otherwise publicly available. 

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Re-Amemiya does not own or control or to people that Re-Amemiya does not employ or manage.

 

 II.        INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

 A.        General

Re-Amemiya gathers personally identifiable information about users of the Site through the registration process and other means, such as user submissions and any web sites accessible through our Site.  We use this personal information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Site and, generally, do not share this information with third parties except as set forth herein.  However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.

 

B.        Personal Information

1.  Registration:  When you register to receive information or products from the Site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information when you sign up including name, address, telephone number, payment information, and email address.  The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances. However, in instances where Re-Amemiya and a partner jointly promote the Site, Re-Amemiya may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Site or as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion.  In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. Re-Amemiya may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members).  As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Site. 

 

2.  Online Shopping: 

On the Site, you can purchase products, services or register to receive materials, such as a catalog or new product and service updates.  In many cases, whether Member or non-registered user of the Site (“Visitor”), you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.  If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. Re-Amemiya has no control over the “third parties” use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order.  Please exercise care when doing so.

If you order products directly from Re-Amemiya, we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

 

 3.  Online Advertisements: 

We share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.  Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements.  For instance, an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach (for example, females between 25 and 35 years of age) and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience.  Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.  Re-Amemiya does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.

 

 4.  Responses to Email Inquiries:

 When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to Re-Amemiya, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Re-Amemiya does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.

 

5.  Special Cases: 

It is Re-Amemiya policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.  However, Re-Amemiya may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Site or Web sites accessible through our Site, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms & Conditions or other user policies; to operate the Site properly; or to protect Re-Amemiya and our Members.

 

C.        Non-Personal Information & Cookies

Re-Amemiya also gathers non-personal information through standard tracking mechanisms on Re-Amemiya internet servers.  For example, Re-Amemiya employs “cookies” on various parts of the Site. Cookies are information that the Site transfers to the user's hard drive to facilitate record keeping and tracking a user's preferences.  Non-personal information is primarily collected in order to improve the functionality and user's enjoyment of the Site, to tailor the Site to your individual preferences, and to make using the Site simpler and more enjoyable.  The information that is typically tracked includes the type of internet browser and operating system being used by a user, and the user’s internet service provider.
