At www.HakuhodoUSA.com, your privacy is our priority. We are committed to protecting your information at all times, in all situations. The information we collect about you when you become a member is used only to process your orders and to provide a more personalized experience on our site.
Our site uses a 256 bit encrypted SSL to increase the security of our customer’s information. Hakuhodo USA can not guarantee complete security in regards to stored information on the customer's end. However, we have installed and applied the encryption necessary to prevent stolen information.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
When you become a Hakuhodo USA member, we ask you to fill out a form that requests your name, address and e-mail address as well as some demographic information such as gender and date of birth. Hakuhodo USA will NOT share data with partners or any third party to perform statistical analysis.
Your name and address information is used solely to process orders unless your prior consent is given. Without your consent, this information will NEVER be sold, given, rented or traded to others for purposes other than order fulfillment.
Your demographic information (gender, date of birth, etc.) will be used for several security purposes, to ensure you are who you say you are and you are paying with your credit cards and not someone using your stolen payment information.

We may correct or supplement your address information with standardized postal representation in order to ensure that your orders are delivered. We do this to ensure that our members receive the order and to lower costs associated with our programs.
