By visiting any of our websites, we collect non-personally identifiable information about you, and we may also collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us.
Personally Identifiable Information is information that is associated with a person’s name or personal identity and can be used to identify or contact you. It includes but is not limited to such information as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and credit/debit card information. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13).
NIKON does not sell, rent or lease any of your personally identifiable information to third parties. NIKON also does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties except we may disclose personally identifiable information to companies affiliated with NIKON, such as its parent company, and/or unaffiliated third parties working on our behalf or for us or with us, such as agents, dealers, vendors and suppliers, but only for the purpose to enable them to fulfill your requests to us for product, services or information. All such affiliated and unaffiliated parties who have access to personally identifiable information are required to keep confidential such information and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for NIKON and as otherwise required by law. Except as otherwise stated in this policy, NIKON will not share personally identifiable information with third parties without your permission, unless to (a) comply with any law, subpoena, regulation or court order; (b) respond to requests from governmental authorities; or (c) help prevent fraud or to protect the safety, rights, property or security of NIKON as well as that of third parties.
Information security is important at NIKON, and while no security measure is perfect or impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you provide to us, you can be assured that we maintain physical, electronic and administrative measures and safeguards and periodically review these security measures and safeguards to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized or inappropriate access and use.
Our websites are not directed at children, and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from or about children under the age of thirteen (13). Should any parent or guardian discover that his/her child has provided personal information to NIKON, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to have such information deleted from our records.
You can access, edit, delete and update any personally identifiable information that you provided to us through our websites and that we maintain, by visiting support.nikontech.com/cgi-bin/nikonusa.cfg/php/enduser/doc_serve.php? 2=ofw.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to edit or update your personally identifiable information.
NIKON will not use your personally identifiable information for purpose(s) other than the purpose(s) for which you provided it to us. What this means is that NIKON will not send you information about NIKON products, services, promotions, events, firmware or software updates, and service advisories as well as how to get more enjoyment from your NIKON products and photography unless you request them.
