How Asahina & Wallace Uses Information.
We use the Information Covered to manage services provided by us or our licensees or affiliates, such as contacting you for advertising and marketing purposes. We use it also to allow you to participate in features on the Sites, facilitate your online search for information, tailor content for you, improve our site and features, and contact you about relevant products and services. We may share non-personally identifiable information, such as aggregated user statistics, with third parties. We keep such information for only as long as needed for business operations and legal compliance.
How Asahina & Wallace Shares the Information Covered.
Asahina & Wallace may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) from jurisdictions inside or outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required under local laws of that jurisdiction, applies to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you from people violating our Terms of Service. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.
How Asahina & Wallace Protects the Information Covered.
We take many steps to keep your information secure. All account information is stored on secured servers behind firewalls. Sensitive information (such as credit card numbers and passwords), is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Despite our best efforts, there are risks inherent in sharing information. We cannot control actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of privacy settings or security measures.
To further protect your information, you can reduce your risk by using security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up-to-date antivirus software. Also, you can report any security violations to us at [email protected].
We also respect minors’ privacy. The Asahina & Wallace website and related mobile Sites are intended for adults. Children under age 13 are not permitted to join this site. We also recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before posting or sending any information on or over the Sites.

We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a "Promotion") through the site that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion.

INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to the Sites, we and our third-party service providers, including any third party content providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Sites ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Sites, the search terms you entered into a search engine that lead you to one of our Sites (if applicable), all of the areas within our Sites that you visit, and the time of day you visited the Sites, among other information. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Sites and our products and services. In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for any computer, mobile phone or other device you may use to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your device used to access a Site, and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us, or our third party service providers, with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access a Site. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.
The technologies that may be used to collect Usage Information include the following:
Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on your computer or other device when you visit the Sites or otherwise access our online content.

Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed and to improve your experience on the Sites, including to provide you with content customized to your interests. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).
