Personal Data Use: eMail and Web Policy

Rigaku recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of information we may collect from our on-line visitors. To this end, we are committed to using our best efforts to respect the privacy of those visitors.

Certain parts of our site are accessible only to “members” who provide us with basic contact information. All personal information is protected by a unique userID and member-chosen password. It is the member’s responsibility to safeguard their login information. This information is used to personalize certain pages and to determine entitlement to certain documents. Rigaku does not sell or provide names, eMail address or other information to any third party for any reason.

Our Web site deposits certain bits of information called “cookies” in a visitor’s computer. Cookies are sent back only to the Rigaku Web Site that deposited them when a visitor returns to our site. Cookies allow us to save certain session information, making it easier for our registered members to return to personalized sections of our site without having to login. This technology does not collect any personal identifiable information that you do not specifically provide us. Any information you provide us is used to improve the navigation and functionality of our Web site. Furthermore, Rigaku does not believe in sending mail to people that do not wish to receive it (“spamming”).
