Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy.

FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation cares about your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation ("Wako Chemicals U.S.A." or "we").

This Privacy Policy describes our privacy practices in relation to the use of our websites, applications, affiliated sites, services, and programs, including attendance at events and marketing activities, and will help you better understand our privacy practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal data is collected and used.

Through Wako Chemicals U.S.A.'s site, you will be able to link to sites maintained by other companies within the global group of companies headed by FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation (the "FUJIFILM Group") headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, as well as unaffiliated third party sites, and including FUJIFILM Wako Pure Chemical Corporation located in Osaka, Japan. As more fully described below, each of these sites may be governed by a different privacy policy or statement. We suggest you check the privacy link typically located in the footer of each web page to access and review the applicable privacy policy or statement. Since privacy policies or statements may change periodically, we also suggest that you occasionally re-visit them.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and contact us at wkusspecchem@fujifilm.com if you have any questions about our privacy practices, your personal data, rights, or choices.

This Privacy Policy is effective as of August 13, 2018.

The Information We Collect.

The information we collect from visitors to Wako Chemicals U.S.A.'s site helps us improve our site and provide better service to you. We collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store personal data (such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone, and fax numbers) when needed to provide our services and for our operational and business purposes as described in this Privacy Policy. Occasionally you may also choose to provide us with what may be considered sensitive personal data (collectively, "personal data") such as financial and bank account numbers.

We want to be clear about our privacy practices so that you can make informed choices about the use of your information, and we encourage you to contact us at wkusspecchem@fujifilm.com at any time with questions or concerns.

The information we collect falls into two broad categories: (1) information you voluntarily provide to us and (2) information that is automatically collected.

Information you voluntarily provide to us.

Generally, you can visit Wako Chemicals U.S.A.'s site without providing any personal or sensitive personal data. However, on some pages, we collect personal data in order to provide a service or carry out a transaction requested by you. See below for what personal data is collected and how it is used. We may also ask for feedback relating to our goods or services. Participation is voluntary and you are not required to provide this information. There generally is no negative effect on you if you choose not to provide your personal data. However, since personal data may be needed to process an order, if you choose not to participate, we may not be able to perform a requested service or complete a transaction.

Information Collected Automatically.

Our servers, logs and other technologies collect and store certain personal and non-personal data such as your IP address, machine operating system, geolocations, type of system, and selection preferences that is generated automatically as you navigate through our sites. By using our website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you for the stated purposes below. We use a standard feature found in browser software called a "cookie" used to store and manage user preferences, deliver targeted advertising, enable content, and gather analytic and usage data, for example. The use of cookies and other tracking technologies is standard across websites and apps through which information is collected about your online activities across applications, website, or other servicers. You can choose to accept or decline cookies and, while most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of our sites.

How We Use Your Information.

We will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose personal data except where we are authorized or required by law to do so without consent. Consent may be express or implied. We process personal data for these service- and business-related purposes:

When We Share Personal Data.

Wako Chemicals U.S.A. will not provide personal data to any third party or use the information for an undisclosed purpose except as otherwise noted at the point where the information is collected and where necessary to provide services or conduct our business operations as described below. We share personal data in accordance with data privacy and security requirements, and we occasionally will share non-personal, anonymized, and statistical data with third parties. We make appropriate efforts to ensure that the entities we share personal data with do not further distribute the information such as entering into non-disclosure agreements.

Except as otherwise notified in this Privacy Policy, your personal data will not be shared outside of the FUJIFILM Group.

How we store and process personal data.

As part of the FUJIFILM Group, FUJIFILM belongs to a global organization which has networks, databases, servers, systems, support, help desks, third-party cloud hosting services, suppliers and technology support in locations throughout the world. In order to service the needs of the business, workforce, and customers of Wako Chemicals U.S.A, personal data may be shared among FUJIFILM and with the wider FUJIFILM Group. Wako Chemicals U.S.A, as data controller of all personal data collected on this website, takes appropriate steps to ensure that the personal data it collects is processed, secured, and transferred in accordance with this Privacy Policy and requirements of applicable laws and regulations, compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as it relates to companies collecting data in the United States. In this regard, please note the following:

How we secure personal data

Wako Chemicals U.S.A takes the security of personal data it collects and retains seriously. We are committed to safeguarding it and protecting against unauthorized access to, or use of, our information assets and any other anticipated threats or hazard to the security and integrity of such assets. Measures we take to safeguard personal data include appropriate policies and procedures to address risk management, appropriate restrictions on access to personal data; monitoring and physical measures for the secure storage and transfer of personal data; training for employees and contractors with access to personal data; and vendor risk management requiring contractual obligations to protect any personal data with which they are entrusted in accordance with our security policies and procedures.

How long we keep personal data.

Wako Chemicals U.S.A has policies and procedures relating to the retention of personal data based upon a classification scheme consisting of business functions and process areas, and the classification and types of the data and records. We retain personal data for as long as we reasonably require it for business and legal purposes. In determining data retention periods, Wako Chemicals U.S.A considers contractual and legal obligations, and the expectations and requirements of customers, vendors, suppliers and others who share their personal data with us. When we no longer need personal data, we securely delete or destroy it.

Your right to access, correct, or delete your personal data.

We respect your right to access and control your personal data, and we will endeavor to respond to requests for information about personal data and, where applicable will correct, amend, or delete your personal data.

Filing a Complaint.

EU residents have the right to make a complaint to a data protection regulator in the event of dissatisfaction with how Wako Chemicals U.S.A manages their personal data. A list of National Data Protection Authorities can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm. Please contact us at wkusspecchem@fujifilm.com with any requests related to your personal data.

Our Special Commitment to Children's Privacy.

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13. This website is not intended for anyone under the age of 16. If you are younger than 16, you may not use this website.

Do Not Track.

"Do Not Track" is a privacy preference that you can set in most browsers that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user's computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests at this time.

Changes to the Privacy Policy.

Wako Chemicals U.S.A reserves the right to change, amend, or update this Privacy Policy. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on this site. On return visits to our site, please remember to review the Privacy Policy which may have changed, since continued use of our site after any posted revision indicates your consent to our use of your information in accordance with the changed, amended, or updated Privacy Policy.

How to contact us.

If you have questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, you may wish to contact the data controller.
