1. Our Policy

Nichino Europe Co. Limited ("Nichino" "we" or "us") respect and understand our website users' concerns about confidentiality and privacy and we take reasonable steps to ensure that any information you give us is handled in a safe and responsible manner. We have developed this policy which sets out the privacy practices of Nichino and describes the information we collect about you during your use of our website (our "site") and what use we may make of that information.

It is important to remember that by using our site, you agree to the terms of this policy. Because the technology in this area is expanding and improving at such a rapid pace, we suggest that you refer to this policy on a regular basis as it may change, at any time and in Nichino's sole discretion, in order to allow us to take advantage of any technological advances or for business purposes or legal reasons.

In this policy, the following words will have the following meanings:

2. Information That We May Collect

We collect your Personal Data in different areas of our site. The exact information collected varies depending on the areas of our site that you use.

We collect Personal Data that you voluntarily disclose in the course of using our site. When you complete any forms on the site, we may require that you provide us with Personal Data including your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. Additionally, we may ask for other information. You may also voluntarily disclose Personal Data in an email to us. In the future, we may require further information from you as dictated by the nature of the goods and services that we may offer.

In the course of using our site, we automatically collect certain information about you, which may include your Personal Data. This information includes the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. We do not collect or use this information to create a profile about you.

We may decide to use cookies on certain pages of our site. Cookies can help us provide information which is targeted to your interests. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session.

We will only use your Personal Data to the extent that the law allows us to do so. Under the Data Protection Laws, we will rely on the following legal bases for processing your Personal Data:

We may also use Personal Data to send to you information that, in some cases, is targeted to your needs and interests. If you supply us with your e-mail or mailing address, you may receive occasional mail from us announcing services, product information, promotional events or updates to our website. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please send us an e-mail via our contact page indicating your e-mail address or mailing address as applicable and asking us to remove you from our mailing list.

4. Our Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your Personal Data with selected third parties including our business partners, suppliers and/or sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you.

In the event any business or assets of Nichino are ever sold, we may transfer ownership of our e-mail list and other Personal Data to the acquiring company. Should this happen, we will instruct the new owners of the company to contact users via e-mail to notify you of the change.

We will disclose your Personal Data in circumstances where we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our site Terms of Use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Nichino, our clients, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Unfortunately, due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and Personal Data will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access files, transmissions or private communications. Although we use industry standard practices to protect Personal Data, we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Data or private communications will always remain private.

5. Third Party Collectors of Information

Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our affiliates or other third parties.

6. Where We Store Your Information.

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers within the European Economic Area.

7. Retention of Your Information

We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
