This Site is designed for you, the customer, and your interests. It is SANYO's goal to assist you and make your online experience at SANYO.com as informative and pleasurable as possible. SANYO has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to individual privacy.
SANYO.com does use the features of your browser to set "cookies" on your computer. In addition, SANYO may log IP addresses for systems administration purposes and to track your session. This gives SANYO an idea of which parts of our web site(s) ("Site") you are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that your session will be tracked, but you will remain anonymous. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to help administer our Site. In addition, your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart, as well as to gather broad demographic information.
Voluntary Submission of Information
While SANYO does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information in order to visit and use the Site, please note that in order to participate in some activities, it will be necessary for you to provide this information. SANYO may offer a variety of voluntary services to you, in which you may submit information about yourself to SANYO, such as Order Forms, Membership Registrations, Surveys, and Contests. Order Forms may be used for customers to request information or purchase products and services. Membership Registrations may be used for customers to have a faster product checkout, shopping cart storage, checking order status, and news update emails. Surveys may be used to collect information about your product preferences and demographic information. Contests may be used to offer valuable prizes to customers at random. Through these voluntary submissions of information, we may collect your contact information (e.g., email address and mailing address), financial information (e.g., account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (e.g., zip code, age, education, income level, product preferences). Contact information from the Order Form may be used to send orders and news and product updates about SANYO to you. Your contact information may also be used to get in touch with you when necessary. Financial information that is collected is used to check your qualifications and bill you for products and services. Note that credit card information is not stored beyond a single transaction and must be re-entered for each purchase, even if you register as a member. Demographic and profile data may be used to tailor your experience at our Site, showing you content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences. If you choose not to provide it for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them. You may opt-out of receiving any future informational mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
