Kamakura Corporation Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Kamakura Corporation or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Kamakura Corporation; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Kamakura Corporation, or the public.

Use of Cookies
The Kamakura Corporation Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Kamakura Corporation pages, or register with Kamakura Corporation site or services, a cookie helps Kamakura Corporation to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Kamakura Corporation Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Kamakura Corporation features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Kamakura Corporation services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information
Kamakura Corporation secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Kamakura Corporation has adopted appropriate technical and organizational measures necessary to ensure the security of personal information and to avoid any alteration, loss, unauthorized use or access, taking into account the state of technology, the nature of the information stored and the risks to which these are exposed, whether originating from human actions or from physical or natural influences. Kamakura Corporation secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Your personal information may be stored and processed outside of your home country, including in countries that may not offer the same level of protection for your personal information as your home country. Kamakura Corporation has put measures in place to ensure that when your personal information is transferred internationally, it is subject to appropriate safeguards in accordance with data protection laws, including contractual safeguards.
