Privacy Policy

Kyoko Nakamura Design is also referred to as KND in this Privacy Policy. It is KND's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, KND collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. KND’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KND’s visitors use its website. From time to time, KND may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
KND also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. KND does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to KND’s websites choose to interact with KND in ways that require KND to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KND gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, KND collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with KND. KND does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

KND may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. KND may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, KND does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

KND discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KND’s behalf or to provide services available at KND’s website, KyokoNakamura.com and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KND’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KND will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, KND discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when KND believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KND, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of KND website and have supplied your email address, KND may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with KND and our products. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. KND takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. KND uses cookies to help KND identify and track visitors, their usage of KND website, and their website access preferences. KND visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using KND’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of KND’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

KND encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
