What Our Privacy Policy Covers

This privacy policy covers the “personal information” that TAKA Original obtains about you in various contexts, both online and offline, including when you visit our websites, download, visit us in our stores, communicate with us, or participate in any of our programs or events. When we use the term “personal information” we are referring to information that identifies, relates to, describes or can be associated with you. Our websites may include links to third party websites and/or applications. Please note that we have no control over the privacy practices of websites or applications that we do not own.

 

What We Collect

The following are examples of the types of personal information that we collect and how we use that information:

Activity Examples of Personal Information Collected Primary Purpose for Collection and Use
Account Registration When you create an account, we collect your name and e-mail address. We may also collect your birthday and zip code if you choose to provide it. You can choose to save certain information in your account to use for future purchases, such as your shipping addresses and payment information (“Card On File”). When you add a Card On File to your account, we collect your payment information details, billing address, phone number, and zip code. We use this information to maintain your account, including offering functionalities such as easy checkout and the ability to save user preferences and transaction history.
TAKA Internet Surf Club Program When you join the TAKA no signal club, we collect your name, the month and day of your birthday, phone number, e-mail address, and mailing address. When you use your register account, we collect information about your purchase history and rewards activity. If you apply for or use a TAKA Internet Surf Club at a TAKA Original offical website, we receive your account information as well as purchase history and rewards activity. We use this information to administer the program and to perform our contract to provide you with the benefits associated with the program. We also use this information to detect security incidents and to protect against malicious, deceptive, or fraudulent activity in connection with TAKA Internet Surf Club terms and conditions.
Browsing Activity and Website Usage When you visit our websites, we collect certain information about how you use and navigate our websites, such as which links you click on, which pages or content you view, and other similar information or statistics. We also collect technical information about your device, operating systems, and web browser type. We use this information to understand how you use our websites, to determine which of our products or services are the most popular, and to improve our websites. We also use this information to personalize your experience, to save you time when you visit our websites, and to customize the marketing and advertising that we show you.
Communications With Us When you communicate with us, including contacting us for support, to provide feedback or comments, to participate in a survey, or to make a request or other inquiry, we will collect your name and contact information (such as e-mail address or phone number), as well as any other information that you choose to provide to us. In some cases, we record customer service calls for quality assurance. We use this information to respond to and/or follow-up on your issues or feedback, and to provide information in response to you requests and inquiries.
Happening at TAKA Original When you book a reservation for one of our services or when you RSVP for one of our events, we collect your contact information. We use this information to send you messages about your appointments and events.
Job Applications If you apply for a job posting, we collect information necessary to process your application or to retain you as an employee. This may include, among other things, your Social Security number. Providing this information is required for employment. We use this information to make decisions about recruitment and in anticipation of a contract of employment.
Posting in Public Forums If you choose to submit or post information in a public space on our websites, or on our social media pages, such as creating a public profile, using our Ratings & Reviews feature to share product reviews, submitting content as part of TAKA Original Internet Surf Club member , or leaving a testimonial about a TAKA Original influencer, we collect the information you share. We use this information to understand your opinions and to provide a forum for discussion, asking questions, posting photos and reviews, and sharing experiences.
Promotional Communications When you sign up to receive promotional communications from us, such as e-mail communications, mobile messages (including text and/or push notifications), and postal mailings, we collect your contact information. We may also collect certain information about how you interact with the e-mails and promotional messages we send you. We use this information to communicate with you and send promotional materials such as trend alerts, promotions, new product launches, and event invitations. We also use this information to understand how you interact with our communications with you.
Purchasing (Online and In Stores) When you place an order for a product on our websites or by phone, we collect your name, shipping address, payment information, and billing address. When you make a purchase in one of our stores, we collect your payment information, and in some cases your phone number and e-mail address. We use this information to fulfill your orders for products or services, and to process your payments for such products or services. We also use this information to provide you receipts and order updates.
Sweepstakes, Contests, and Promotions When you participate in a sweepstakes, contest, or other similar campaign or promotion, we collect your name, contact information, and in some cases limited demographic information and content generated by participants. Some campaigns and promotions have a social networking component where you can choose to submit additional information such as social media profiles and handles, photographs, and other content. We use this information to administer our sweepstakes, contests, and other similar promotions. In some contexts, we are also required by law to collect information about those that enter into our sweepstakes.

In addition to the personal information we collect from you directly, we may also obtain information about you from other sources, including third parties, business partners, our affiliates, or publicly available sources. For example, if you have given TAKA Original permission to store your credit card information and your credit card issuer provides an account updater service, we may receive updated credit card information (including credit card number and expiration date) from the credit card issuer.

 

How We Use Your Personal Information

In addition to the purposes and uses described above, we use personal information in the following ways:

  • To identify you when you visit our websites or stores.
  • To fulfill your requests, such as to provide you with products and services or to process returns.
  • To communicate with you about our products, services, sales, offers, and promotions.
  • To conduct research and analytics, including improving our services and product offerings.
  • To send marketing and advertising communications.
  • To detect security incidents, and to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding possible malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, including attempts to manipulate or violate our policies, procedures, and terms and conditions.
  • To comply with legal obligations, to establish or exercise our rights, and to defend against a legal claim.
  • To support core business functions, including to maintain records related to business process management, loss and fraud prevention, and to collect amounts owing to us.

Although the sections above describe our primary purpose in collecting your personal information, in many situations we have more than one purpose. For example, if you complete an online purchase, we collect your information to perform our contract with you, but we also collect your information so that we can quickly and easily respond to any questions about your order after your transaction is complete.

 

How We Share Your Personal Information

In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in this privacy policy, we disclose personal information in the following circumstances:

  • Corporate affiliates. We may share personal information with our corporate affiliates, including our parent company.

  • Social Media Platforms and Networks. Some of our websites have features such as, plugins, widgets, or and other tools made available by third parties that may result in information being collected or shared between us and the third party. For example, if you use Facebook’s “Like” feature, Facebook may register the fact that you “liked” a product and may post that information on Facebook. Their use of your information is not governed by this privacy policy.
  • Public Forums. Some of our websites provide the opportunity to post content in a public forum. For example, TAKA Original’s Internet Surf Club Community allows you to participate in TAKA Original Groups to provide Ratings & Reviews, and to receive product recommendations. If you decide to submit information in these public forums, that information will be publically available.
  • Legal Process. We may disclose personal information in response to subpoenas, warrants, court orders, government inquiries or investigations, or to comply with relevant laws and regulations.

  • Business Transfers. We may share personal information with another company that buys some, or all, of the assets or stock of TAKA Original, and that company may use and disclose personal information for purposes similar to what is described in this policy. TAKA Original may also share personal information with prospective purchasers to evaluate the proposed transaction.
  • Other Instances. We may ask if you would like us to share your information with other third parties who are not described elsewhere in this privacy policy.
 

How We Protect Your Personal Information

We realize that individuals trust us to protect their personal information. We maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to help protect your personal information. While we attempt to protect your personal information in our possession, no method of transmission over the internet, or security system is perfect, and we cannot promise that information about you will remain secure in all circumstances.

For your convenience, our websites include functionality that allows you to remain logged in so that you do not have to re-enter your password each time you want to access your account. If you choose to remain logged in, you should be aware that anyone with access to your device will be able to access and make changes to your account and may be able to make purchases through your account. For that reason, if you choose to remain logged in, we strongly recommend that you take appropriate steps (such as enabling the “Passcode Lock” security feature on your mobile device) to protect against unauthorized access to and use of your account. Please also notify us as soon as possible if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or password.
