Website Visitors Like most website operators, Nipponhashi collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Nipponhashi’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Nipponhashi’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Nipponhashi may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Nipponhashi also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.nipponhashi.com blog posts. Nipponhashi only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

The amount and type of information that Nipponhashi gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://www.nipponhashi.com to provide a username and email address.
