At Yamaha we believe that, as our online visitor, you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we collect when you visit our Web sites and what type of information is collected. The guidelines contained herein only apply to your visits to the Web sites operated by the European subsidiaries of Yamaha Corporation Ltd.
While Yamaha does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information in order to visit and use the Yamaha sites, please note that in order to participate in some activities, it will be necessary for you to provide this information. If you choose not to provide it for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them.
For each visitor to an Yamaha Web site, Yamaha's Web server automatically recognizes and stores information such as the visitor's IP address/Domain name combination. We use this information to understand visitor traffic patterns through our sites for purposes such as enhancing its usability. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you've activated blocking technology available in some browsers.
Additionally, Yamaha may ask you to provide "personal information", meaning individually identifiable information that you provide on our Web sites such as your email address, name, mailing address, telephone number, social security number, credit card number, or persistent identifier (such as a customer number held in a cookie) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to participate in contests, chat rooms, on bulletin boards, to fill out a registration, or to order products and services using these sites. Yamaha may combine the information you provide on our Web sites with other information we may collect from you or from third parties so that we can more effectively tailor our site, services and offerings to you. If you provide Yamaha with personal information, you shall have the right, on reasonable prior notice, to inspect, change, amend or delete such information. Instructions on how to update personal information will be given at the point of data collection.
Unless you instruct us otherwise, Yamaha may contact you to provide information about products, services, promotions, contests, or other activities or offerings that may be of interest to you. You can instruct us whether or not you wish to be contacted by checking or removing the check from the box indicating your preference as applicable at the place where your information is collected, or by other means (such as an email request). In addition, with each communication you receive from Yamaha, you will be given the opportunity to indicate if you do not wish to receive future communications.
Unless it is for the purposes you have requested or originally agreed, Yamaha will not share the personal information you provide on the Yamaha Web sites with any other parties, except (a) with your consent, (b) as may be permitted or required by law or court order and/or (c) to persons or companies with whom Yamaha contracts to carry out the internal operations of the site or our business (for example, to send you a promotional item that you have requested on the site).
While Yamaha cannot guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur, rest assured that Yamaha takes great care in maintaining the security of your personal information and in preventing unauthorized access to it through the use of appropriate technology and internal procedures.
