Privacy Policy

At Ofuda Imports we consider the privacy of our visitors to be extremely important. This privacy policy document describes in detail the types of personal information collected and recorded by Ofuda Imports and how we use it.

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register on our Site or place an order.

When ordering or registering on our Site, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You do not need to register on our Site to browse or "window shop".

Like many other websites, we make use of log files. These files log what visitors we receive to the Site - usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services' analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movement around the Site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other information of that nature are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Children Under Thirteen (13) Years of Age/COPPA:

Ofuda Imports does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under thirteen (13) years of age unless the collection complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). If you are under thirteen (13) years of age, do not send any information about yourself to Ofuda Imports. If Ofuda Imports discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided Ofuda Imports with personally identifiable information, Ofuda Imports will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that child's personally identifiable information from its system.


Cookies

We use "cookies" on our Site. Cookies are pieces of information or data sent to your browser from a webserver and stored on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies tell our server that you've visited before and can help to make your visit more personal so you don't have to re-enter info on a return visit. Cookies also allow us to count the number of unique and returning visitors who use our Site.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser to notify you when you've received a cookie or, alternatively, to refuse to accept cookies. It is important to note that you may not be able to use certain features like checking out (and participate in certain offerings) on our Site if you choose not to accept cookies.

Information Gathered From Users

If you elect to purchase a product on our Site, you will be required to provide us with certain personal information, including your name, e-mail address, credit card number, expiration date, and billing address (this required information is subject to change from time to time). There may also be opportunities for you to provide us with additional information regarding your preferences and interests. This information, however, is not required and is completely optional on your part. Additional data may be collected from you based upon certain services you elect to utilize on our Site, email addresses for example or used to store and send electronic greeting cards. By obtaining this information, we can provide our users with specific content and advertising in which they might be interested. None of this information is required to use our service or to become a user; however, the omission of certain types of data will limit the value of your use of these features. If you become a user of our Site or are from one of our co-branded websites, we may share your registration information with the co-branded partner.


What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

To personalize your experience:
Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.

To improve our website:
We continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.

To improve customer service:
Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.

Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of completing your order.

To send emails:

The email address you provide for order processing will only be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order.


How do we protect your information?

We have a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financial information, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.


Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or serving you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

 

Disclosure Exceptions

Notwithstanding the policies herein, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to appropriate third-parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary:

  • To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order;
  • To protect the company's rights and property;
  • To investigate reports of users sending material using a false e-mail address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages;
  • To protect Ofuda Imports against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site and/or the Ofuda Imports service; or
  • During emergencies, such as when we believe someone's physical safety is at risk.

 

On-Site Advertising

We may also use information about you to target advertising while you are visiting our Site. We may use cookie files to assure that you will not be served the same ads repeatedly.


Third Party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our Site. These third party websites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked websites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Site and welcome any feedback about these websites.


Sale of Assets

In the event that Ofuda Imports and/or its units or subsidiaries are ever sold, acquired, merged, liquidated, reorganized, or otherwise transferred, we reserve the right to transfer our user databases together with any personally identifiable information contained therein, to a third-party acquiring Ofuda Imports's assets.


Use Common Sense in All Your Online Activities

Even the best policy can't protect your online privacy and security in all circumstances. Unscrupulous advertisers, hackers, and scam artists are constantly searching the Internet looking for new targets. Your best protection is to understand the limits to privacy on the Internet and use common sense in all of your on-line activities.

Be aware that e-mail is an inherently insecure form of communication. Remember that third parties are sometimes able to illegally intercept your unencrypted messages, including online greetings.

Anytime you visit a chat room or post a message to an on-line bulletin board, your e-mail address can be accessed by advertisers looking to compile lists for unsolicited commercial e-mail (also known as spam). Be sure that you only disclose your e-mail address in circumstances in which it is safe to do so. Beware of scams in which persons unknown to you request your screen name, password, or credit card information. Make sure you verify the identity of anyone asking for personal information. Always monitor your children's on-line activities and educate them as to the rules for safe Internet use.
