Celga, Inc. (referred to herein as "Celga" or "we") values the privacy of its customers and others ("you") who visit or use our website. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into the Celga User Agreement by reference.

The Information Celga Collects:

Users who browse our site without logging in may do so anonymously that is, without providing any personal information. We may collect general data about visitors to our site (e.g., number of visitors, browser type, pages accessed, duration of visit, etc.), but this data does not enable us to identify you personally. We may collect the name or internet protocol address of your internet server, but this information generally does not reveal your personal identity.

Users who choose to sign up for our services must create an account, which requires giving us data that can be used to identify you personally. This may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, phone number, email address, or credit card number. Users who choose to do business with us provide this information voluntarily we do not and cannot collect this data without you explicitly giving it to us. By providing this information, you give us express permission to use it to contact you about any and all matters concerning your account or Celga business.

Users who contact us without signing up for our services give us express permission to use their email address, phone number, address, etc. to communicate with them concerning Celga business. Email or other communications we receive may be stored indefinitely.

What Celga Does With The Information:

We use the aggregated, non-personal data to gather general statistics about the use of our site, categorize those who browse our site, and resolve any technical issues that might arise.

We use your personal data to communicate directly with you, to ship your items, to ensure that payments and deposits are credited to your account, for administrative purposes, and to transact all business with you. We may also use it for debugging purposes should there be errors on our site or with your account.

Who May See Your Information:

Personal data that you provide is for Celga's sole and exclusive use. We do not sell personal data or provide it to any party outside of our company except as required by law or properly prepared and executed court documents. We comply fully with all applicable laws and court orders.

We do provide certain personal information to Yahoo Japan about customers who apply for a Celga Gold account. The details are covered in the Celga Gold Account User Agreement, and are incorporated into this policy by this reference.

We do not provide data about our customers to any other of our customers.

As we provide more services, such as upgrades to our web site, we may hire third party vendors to do the work. These third parties may need to access our data in order to provide the services for which we hired them. While they are doing work for us, they will be bound by our privacy policy and they will have no further rights or access to your personal data whatsoever once their work for us is finished.

We may, at our sole discretion, provide aggregated non-personal data to third parties.

About Other Sites:

We provide links to many other web sites from our site, such as the web sites of Japanese businesses from which we may obtain items for you. Please understand that each of these sites may have their own privacy policy that may or may not be similar to ours. When you go to their sites, you will be subject to their privacy policy, and we have no control over what data is collected or how it may be used.

About International Information Transfer:

Please be aware the primary Celga web site is hosted in the United States in California, and as such is subject to all US and California laws. We also may transfer and store your personal information at our Japanese facilities, where it will be subject to all Japanese laws. By providing us with your personal information, you agree to having that information transferred to and stored in the United States and Japan and subject to these laws.

About Cookies:

We use cookies to store some of your personal data while you're using our web site. A cookie is a small amount of data that our servers transfer to your browser and that only our servers can read. Our cookies do not provide data to any other web site you may access. When you log into your Celga account, our web site creates a cookie with your username and other session data to enable you to click through our web site's various screens without having to log in again on every page.

If you do not want to use cookies, you may disable or delete them from within your web browser application by accessing the security or privacy settings. However, without cookies enabled we cannot guarantee that our web site will work for you, which means that you may not be able to use any or all of our services.

About Children:

Celga understands that many children access the web, but our site is for the use of our customers who are legal adults and is not appropriate for those under age 18. We do not knowingly accept accounts from or transact business with those under 18 years of age. While we do not provide direct access or links to the adult categories of the Japanese sites we work with, we cannot guarantee that the sellers on those sites will respect those auction categories and not list items in sections which minors may access freely. Because of this, Celga specifically and generally disclaims all responsibility for any items displayed on or through our website, or the content of any page hosted on any other site. We encourage parents to take an active role in their children's internet activities and monitor them closely.

Your Choices:

If you choose not to provide us with any personal data, you are welcome to browse our web site, but we cannot provide you with any of our deputy services. Celga requires certain information in order to transact business, and your choice not to provide it means that you choose not to do business with us.

If you have done business with Celga in the past and want to sever that relationship, we may retain your personally identifiable information for an indefinite period of time for our business records. As this policy states, we will use it only to contact you about Celga business.

From time to time, we may email our entire customer base regarding special promotions, policy or website changes, or other matters pertaining directly to your relationship with Celga. You may opt out of these communications either by emailing us directly or following the instructions provided in every email. If you choose not to receive our emails, you will still be bound by any changes announced in them as specified in this document and the User Agreement.

About Privacy Policy Changes:

We reserve the right to change this policy at any time by posting it in public view on (http://www.celga.com)our web site. We may announce when these changes take place, but if we don't, the change will still remain in effect. We encourage our users to review the Privacy policy regularly; if you continue to use our site and services after we post a change, you agree to and accept that change.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us.
