Rights for content published on this site belong to our company, affiliates, and business partners. Unauthorized use, duplication, or quotation of content on this site is strictly prohibited.
All trademarks, logos, and service marks used on this site belong to our company and business partners. Unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.
Although the services, systems, and content posted to this site are given due consideration, we take no responsibility for their completeness, accuracy, or usefulness. The user assumes full responsibility for using this site. Our company and business partners are absolutely not responsible for any trouble, loss, or even harm, caused by the usage of this site or information featured on this site.

Part of Our Website uses “cookies” and similar technology. When the website is accessed, the Company or a specified third party might set a cookie in your computer, tablet, smartphone, or mobile phone (“Device”).
A cookie is a small text file that is saved on the hard drive or memory of your Device by the browser software. The cookie set in your Device by the Company does not include information that can identify the individual, but it can provide functions for personalization and for providing target ads based on sites you have accessed previously.
Almost all web browsers automatically accept cookies, but in most cases the browser settings can be changed. For additional information regarding searching and managing cookies, refer to “Method for using the browser settings for searching and managing cookies.”
A cookie does not identify the individual user, but just specifies the device and browser used. (Specific cookies can be associated with individual information, but such information is used when the account linked to the information has selected to exchange information between that account and Our Websites.)
A web beacon is a small image file (called “clear GIF,” etc.) that is embedded in the website and it can identify if you have visited that website and if so, how many times.
Generally, the electronic images that are seen as part of the website, including ad banners, can function as web beacons. Web beacons are generally very small, and are a file like a 1×1 pixel banner.
The web beacons used by the Company do not collect personal information, statistically analyze it, view it, or share it but just create anonymous statistics about the website use. The web beacon system the Company uses to collect this information is a system called Google Analytics that is provided by Google, Inc. (www.google.com/analytics). Web beacons have the same effect as cookies, so references in this policy that refer to cookies also refer to web beacons.

This cookie is used to obtain information for improving the website by analyzing website usage and counting the number of visitors.
For example, it collects information about website use, such as the browser or OS you use, the domain names of websites you have visited in the past, average visit time, and viewed pages. This collected information is added together and is anonymous data that cannot be used to identify the individual. Our Websites uses Google Analytics, the access analysis tool provided by Google for access analysis.
