Introduction/Notice and Acceptance of Terms of Privacy Policy
Your use of our website constitutes your acceptance of the following terms of our website Privacy Policy, as amended or revised by us. You should therefore review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure that you are aware of its terms.

This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect through our website www.masudafunai.com and how we use that information. If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy or how your personal information may be used or affected by your use of our website, please contact us at lawfirm@masudafunai.com.

The Information That We Collect
You do not have to provide personal information to use this website. However, certain services which you may subscribe to through this website (for instance, Masuda Funai Legal Updates) may require you to provide personal information, such as your name, address, email address and other contact information. We use such personal information to respond to your inquiries and to send you newsletters. You may also receive other mailings relating to Masuda Funai seminars or events that we think may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive mailings from us, please refer to the paragraph below headed 'Opt Out'.

In addition, and as is typical of websites generally, incidental to your use of this website, our web server automatically logs certain information such as the name of your internet service provider, the IP address of the computer you are using, the type of browser software and operating system that you use, the date and time you access our website, the website address, if any, from which you linked directly to our website, the website address, if any, to which you travel from our website, and other similar traffic-related information. We may also aggregate information relating to your and other visitors' traffic patterns. We use the foregoing information to help us improve our website and the services that we provide through the website. We do not use such data in any way to create or maintain a personal profile of you or to collect personal information from you.

Generally, we will not disclose information we collect through your use of our website to third parties. We reserve the right, however, to provide such information to our employees, contractors, agents, and designees to the extent necessary to enable them to perform certain website-related services (e.g., web hosting or maintenance services) on our behalf. We also reserve the right to disclose such information to any third party if we believe that we are required to do so for any or all of the following reasons: (i) by law; (ii) to comply with legal processes or governmental requests; (iii) to prevent, investigate, detect or prosecute criminal offences or attacks on the technical integrity of the web site or our network; and/or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or safety of Masuda Funai, the users of the website, or the public.

No Attorney-Client Relationship
Your access to our website and/or your receipt of information from our website or directly from us, or your transmission of electronic or other forms of communication to us, does not, and will not, by itself, create or constitute the basis for an attorney-client relationship, or the privileges of confidential communications which may be attributes of such a relationship. However, if you are already an existing client of Masuda Funai, such electronic or other communication may be subject to the protection of attorney-client confidentiality, depending upon the circumstances of the particular communication.

Use of Cookies
We do not use cookies on our web site to collect information on or from our users.

Opt Out
If you no longer wish to receive materials from us or want your personal information removed from the Masuda Funai database, please contact us at lawfirm@masudafunai.com. Alternatively, when you receive materials from us by e-mail or other communications, you can make use of the "opt out" provision in such communications, so that we know that you no longer wish to receive such materials from us.

Revisions to Privacy Policy
The Internet and the benefits it offers are evolving rapidly, as are the ways in which people use the Internet and the laws surrounding such use. Masuda Funai therefore reserves the right to update and revise this Privacy Policy at any time. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised by referring to the "Last Updated" date at the top of this page, or if you send us an e-mail at lawfirm@masudafunai.com.
