Collection of Information

Hoshino USA collects non-personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways, including tracking your activities through your IP address, computer settings or most-recently visited URL, by using data-tracking software which tells us what parts of the website you have browsed. We may use this information to tell you about products or services, which we feel, may be of interest to you, and we may also share this information with other parties from whom we believe you may want to receive information. Personal information about you, whether obtained through collection or tracking, may be used to contact you again either by online electronic communication (such as e-mail), or by regular mail or telephone.

We will also be collecting and tracking information about activities in our website on an aggregate (i.e., group) basis, where we will not know or keep track of precisely who you are, so that we may keep track of what users may be interested in, to help us in our marketing efforts.

We also collect passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user's experience at the site and for compiling broad aggregate demographic data and related usage data for Ibanez's internal purposes. The types of passive information include, but are not limited to, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site and how long you stay on any part of our site. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We may also track how you interact with our site by assigning a random string of numbers and characters to your session. Passive information does not identify you to Ibanez by name, and Ibanez does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.

Instead, they help you navigate our website as easily as possible and assist us in providing customized services. For example, cookies allow you to enter our site without re-entering your registration information each time. We also use cookies to deliver content that is specific to your interests. Additionally, in some cases, certain functionalities are only feasible through the use of a cookie. Cookies will never contain user names or passwords.

You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our site and/or you may be required to reenter your registration information more frequently during a session.

Security

Our website has industry-standard security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorized alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information. Hoshino USA protects personally identifiable information by utilizing both online and offline security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your information is stored. Our staff is trained to comply with our security procedures, and our security procedures are regularly reviewed and revised, if necessary.
