Personal Information Protection Policy


K.MINAMOTO (“K.MINAMOTO”) respects the privacy of visitors and users of our website (the "Site"). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit or use the Site, how we may use that information, and whether and how we disclose it to anyone. By visiting the Site and using our services and content, you are consenting to the terms of this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new privacy policy at this location. Therefore, you are responsible for periodically checking the Privacy Policy for changes.

Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to our Site, and not to other companies’ or organizations’ websites to which we link or to companies to which we may refer you, as an example, to companies who may provide services to you. Those sites may collect information about you. We do not control sites that are operated by others and are not responsible for the information practices of those sites. This Privacy Policy does not address the information practices of those websites or operators thereof.



1. Personal and Non-Personal Information

When you place an order with us or send us an enquiry, we will collect certain personal information from you, for example, your name, postal address, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses.

You must, at all times, abide by the terms and conditions of the then-current K.MINAMOTO Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. You must not provide to us any information that you believe is false or which may be injurious to the rights of another person.

4. Security

The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. K.MINAMOTO safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and other procedures. However, as it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information you disclose online, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. We are not responsible for non-compliance with recommended security practices.

5. Agents and Service Providers
