At Konica Minolta, we respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have set forth our security and privacy practices. This Section lets you know how and for what purposes your personal information is being collected, processed and used. We pledge that we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is only used in ways that are in compliance with this Section.

  1. Use of Information. Information collected by Konica Minolta is used for three main purposes. First, we collect information to improve this Web Site by determining which of our areas, features, forums, products and services are most popular. Second, we collect information to personalize the experience of the users of this Web Site. For example, users of some of the features of this Web Site are required to create a User Account, UserID and password in order to access those features. Finally, we collect information to enable our User Account members to conduct transactions on this Web Site and to enable our users to participate in discussions, forums, discounts, contests, promotions, special offers, sweepstakes and/or other activities, as and when offered or available, from time to time.
  2. How Information is Collected.
    1. IP Address. Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol”, or IP address. When a user requests a Web page from the Konica Minolta Web Site, our Web servers automatically recognize that user’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our Web Site. We use this information to examine our traffic in the aggregate, but do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record email addresses of users.
    2. Cookies. From time to time, Konica Minolta and/or its advertisers may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie, by itself, cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web Sites. A cookie, by itself, does not damage your system. We may use cookies to identify and keep track of those areas of the Konica Minolta Web Site that you have visited in the past in order to enhance your next visit to the Konica Minolta Web Site and in conjunction with keeping track of the items that you place in your shopping cart, if applicable.

We and our advertisers may use this information to better personalize the content, banners and promotions that you see on the Konica Minolta Web Site. You can choose whether or not to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. If you choose not to accept these cookies, you may not be able to use some of the features on the Konica Minolta Web Site.
    3. Forms. Konica Minolta may collect information using forms for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, commercial transactions, registration of products, and customer service. Any form that collects sensitive information such as financial data will be secured and encrypted using Secure Socket Layers (SSL).
  3. Protection of Collected Information. When you place orders or access your User Account information, you will be in a secure server environment. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is reasonably protected against unauthorized access.
  4. Disclosure of Collected Information. In addition to those times or occasions on which Konica Minolta might utilize information of users that are discussed in the three main purposes above, Konica Minolta might also disclose information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to:
