Privacy Policy

Terms & Conditions

This privacy policy explains the ways in which Akita Lacquerware Industrial Cooperative may collect, use, maintain, and disclose information collected from users of our site. This policy applies to our site and all services offered by Akita Lacquerware Industrial Cooperative.

Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from our users when they visit the site, register on the site, subscribe to a newsletter, enquire about our services, purchase services from Akita Lacquerware Industrial Cooperative, or when they respond to surveys, among other instances. The information we ask of our users may include identity data, such as name, last name, username, title, gender, organization and internet protocol (IP) address. We also may ask for contact data, including email address, company address, mailing address, and phone number. If we ask for financial data, this may include bank account details.

We will only collect information that has been voluntarily submitted. We will only use information in accordance with the law, and in accordance with users’ fundamental rights. Refusal to submit information may in some cases prevent users from being able to engage in certain of our site’s activities, and we may be prevented from providing our goods and services. If we are unable to provide a good or service, we will notify the user. If users do not consent to providing us with their personal data, they have a right to withdraw their consent at any time by contacting us.

Categories of personal data that we will not ask of our users include race, ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, health information or genetic and biometric data, and criminal convictions and offences.

Non-personal identification information

We may also collect non-personal identification information such as technical data, usage data, and marketing and communication data. Technical data may include users’ IP address, login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and version, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices being used to access our site. Usage data may include information about how users interact with our website, our products, and our services. Lastly, marketing and communications data may include users’ preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties as well as users’ communication preferences.

In addition to personal and non-personal information, we also collect, use, and share aggregated data, such as statistical and demographic data. While aggregated data may be derived from personal information, it is not classified as personal data as it is not used to reveal users’ identities. Aggregated data may be used, for example, to determine the percentage of users accessing specific website features.


Our site may use Cookies to enhance user experience. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse Cookies, or to alert them to when Cookies are being used. If they do so, some parts of the site may not function properly.

Using collected information

Information provided by users helps us to respond to customer service requests and support our users’ needs more efficiently. We may also contact users regarding information they previously agreed to receive regarding topics we believe will interest them, as well as regarding users’ orders. Additionally, users’ contact information may be used to respond to enquiries, questions, and/or other requests. The user can unsubscribe from receiving future emails at any time. We will use data collected from users to improve our website, products/services, marketing, customer relationships, and experiences; register users as newsletter subscribers or customers; process and deliver projects and services; notify users about changes to our terms or privacy policy, or update users about the status of their subscription; to administer and protect our business and website; deliver relevant website content and advertisements, at the same time as measuring and understanding the effectiveness of our advertising; and to make suggestions and recommendations about goods and services that may be of interest to users.

Protecting users’ information

Users’ personal data is stored securely on databases and servers. We adopt appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access to users’ personal information, usernames, passwords, transaction information and data stored on our site.

Sensitive and private data exchange between the site and its users happens over an SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

For any webpages that process payment or have password-protected areas, the users’ web browser should indicate that the page is secure.

Sharing your personal information

We do not sell, trade, or rent users’ personal identification information to other parties. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and the site or administer activities on our behalf. We may share users’ information with these third parties for those limited purposes only if given permission by the user. All of our service providers are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of users’ personal data and to use it only in compliance with our instructions.

Third party websites

Users may find advertising or other content on our site that is linked to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. By clicking on links to third-party sites, those parties may then be able to collect or share data regarding the user. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our site. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our site, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.

We will not share users’ personal information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Transfers of information

We share users’ personal data within our company, which may involve transferring users’ data abroad to countries in which we have offices or shops. Whenever we transfer users’ data abroad, we ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to this data by ensuring that it is only transferred to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.

Data retention

We will only retain users’ personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for.
