There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Miku. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Miku for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Miku Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Miku public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Miku does not read any of your private online communications.
Use of your Personal Information
Miku collects and uses your personal information to operate the Miku Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Miku also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Miku and its affiliates. Miku may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Miku does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Miku may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Miku may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Miku, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Miku keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Miku, in order to determine what Miku services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Miku to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Miku Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Miku pages, or register with Miku site or services, a cookie helps Miku to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Miku Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Miku features that you customized.
