This Policy applies, in general, to all internet sites operated by Kyocera and its business units worldwide (each a "Kyocera Internet Site").
Web Site Privacy Statements
Although this Policy applies to all Kyocera Internet Sites generally, each Kyocera Internet Site has a different purpose and features. If additional or different disclosures are required with respect to a specific Kyocera Internet Site, those disclosures will be provided on the site itself or in a separate web site privacy statement ("Web Site Privacy Statement") posted on that site. Each individual disclosure or Web Site Privacy Statement supplements and amends this Policy, but only with respect to the Kyocera Internet Site on which it is posted.

If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Policy (and any applicable Country or Web Site Privacy Statements), do not use Kyocera Internet Sites or Contact Kyocera/Contact Us forms.

Information Collected on Kyocera Internet Sites and How It May Be Used
When you access and use a Kyocera Internet Site, there are 3 ways Kyocera may collect information about you:
Sharing Personal Information
Kyocera will not sell personal information collected from its Internet sites to mailing list brokers without your express consent.
Kyocera may share your personal information with other Kyocera business units. When it does so, the other Kyocera business units will use your information in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consented) and only as permitted under this Policy, any applicable country or web site privacy statements, and all applicable privacy and data protection laws.
Kyocera may also share your personal information with third parties Kyocera hires to perform support services for it. These third parties are required to use the personal information Kyocera shares with them only to perform services on Kyocera's behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.
In some cases, Kyocera may share your personal information with third parties which partner with Kyocera to provide products and services to Kyocera's customers. When Kyocera does so, it will require our business partners to use the personal information in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consented) and only as permitted under this Policy, any applicable country or web site privacy statements, and all applicable privacy and data protection laws.
In certain, limited circumstances Kyocera may share or transfer personal information to unrelated third parties. For example, we may provide personal information to a third party: (i) at your request; (ii) to comply with a legal requirement or court order; (iii) to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft; (iv) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of Kyocera or a Kyocera business unit; or (v) under similar circumstances. If such an event occurs, Kyocera will take appropriate steps to protect your personal information.
Security of Personal Information
Your personal information will generally be stored in Kyocera databases or databases maintained by its service providers. Most of these databases are stored on servers located in Japan, the United States and Germany.
Kyocera maintains reasonable safeguards to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personal information. Although Kyocera uses security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the Internet, Kyocera cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond its reasonable control.
