Terms of Use

We understand and respect your concern about the privacy of any information you supply while at our web site. We believe that knowledge is the key to monitoring and protecting how your information is used on the Internet. This statement sets forth our Privacy Policy and describes the practice we follow with respect to all visitors to this web site, which is owned and operated by tha ltd. (together with its successors and assigns, “THA”).

Please note that by agreeing to this Privacy Policy and providing your Personally Identifiable Information you consent to:

  • the use of your Personal Information by THA and its parent, affiliates and subsidiaries for the uses identified in the Section titled “Personal Information” in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and
  • the transfer of your information to servers located in Japan.

Personal Information” as used in this Privacy Policy shall mean information about a living individual, and “Personally Identifiable Information” as used in this Privacy Policy shall mean Personal Information which can identify the specific individual by name, date of birth or other description contained in such information (including such information as will allow easy reference to other information and will thereby enable the identification of the specific individual).

Personal Information

THA collects certain Personal Information from users of the SCR site (http://scr.sc/) (the “Site”). To register and create user accounts, you must provide certain contact and account information such as name, email address, billing address, and phone number in order to access, license and download digital artworks. THA may use certain account information of authorized users, such as credit card number and company information, account number of PayPal Pte. Ltd. or other online payment service, to conduct credit inquiries. Further, we may collect and store transactional information based on your activities on the Site (such as listing or downloading artworks).

THA may use this information for the following purposes:

  • to process your order and any invoices;
  • to maintain or update your account;
  • to send you updates about special offers, new services, special promotions, and noteworthy news and events;
  • to fulfill the terms of a promotion or contest;
  • to fulfill a service to you; for example, if you choose to submit digital artwork to the Site, we may use your Personal Information to respond to your submission;
  • to contact you in response to forms such as “Contact Us” or emailed requests;
  • to contact you about a material change to this Privacy Policy, the Terms or Use or other relevant agreements, if necessary;
  • to resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; and
  • to disclose to third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process, including, but not limited to mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.

THA may also share or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information that is collected on the Site to licensor of any artwork that is licensed to you, THA’s parent and affiliated companies who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your Personally Identifiable Information for research, administrative and/or internal business purposes. These parties may use such information to contact you with an advertisement or offering related to a product or services.

Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, THA does not sell, share or rent information about its customers to third parties for their marketing or promotional purposes.

Profile Information

Your profile information (such as company type and language preference) in the registration form may be used by THA to create personalized content, services, and advertising on the Site. THA may also profile your activity in the Site in order to accurately track your account and provide you with THA services that correspond to your interests. THA may also compile data in aggregate form so that we may better understand the users that are visiting the Site. For example, we may produce reports on the most popular search terms by collecting general search term data based on individual searches. Aggregate data is anonymous and does not contain any Personal Information that identifies a user. THA may provide non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from the Site users to third parties for their audit, research and analytical purposes.

Automatically Collected Information

As is true of most web sites, when you access and use the Site, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We do link this automatically collected data to Personally Identifiable Information. IP addresses are tied to Personally Identifiable Information to segregate customer types for analytical purposes.

Use of Service Providers

We occasionally hire or partner with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as managing and handling the processing and delivery of mailings (both email and postal mail), providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Change of Address or Contact Information

If your Personally Identifiable Information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, or delete inaccuracies in your information by making the change through the “Contact Us” page of the Site, by emailing our Customer Support at [email protected], or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below. Your request will be processed and implemented within thirty (30) days.

Security

THA has a number of operational functions in place to protect the confidentiality of Personal Information. For example, we store the Personal Information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in secured facilities. THA’s employees are trained and kept up-to-date on our security procedures. If you have any questions about the security at the Site, you can send an email to [email protected]

We use SSL encryption technologies to transmit sensitive information such as a credit card number to our servers. However, perfect security on the Internet does not exist, and THA does not warrant that the Site is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers.

Cookies

When you visit the Site, THA sends your computer a cookie, which is a small file that resides on your computer's hard drive and contains non-Personally Identifiable Information about the user. Cookies only identify the user's computer. Cookies allow THA to make the Site more useful by storing information about your preferences. For example, THA will send your computer a cookie to maintain default settings such as your language preference. You can set your browser's options not to accept cookies, but this may prevent you from accessing all of the features of the THA Web Site.

E-mail

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, THA does not rent, share or sell email lists to third parties for their promotional purposes. THA may send you emails to notify you about your recent order; this will be sent to the email address you provide to THA.

THA offers its members the choice not to receive emails or updates about special benefits, promotions, or offers from THA. If you no longer wish to receive these updates, or you wish to unsubscribe from your THA account, please complete the Contact Us form on the Site and let us know in the comments section that you would like to be removed from the mailing list.

If you no longer wish to receive our promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication (e.g. following the unsubscribe instructions within the email) or you may contact us at [email protected], or telephone us at +81 03-3461-8610, to opt-out.

Surveys, Promotions, and Contests

Participation in surveys, promotions, or contests on the Site is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose Personal Information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and mailing address), and demographic information (such as postal code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award promotional gifts prizes. Survey information will be used for the purposes of monitoring or improving the use of the Site.

Discussion Threads

THA may offer discussion threads and comment boxes on the Site. If you use THA’s discussion threads or comment boxes, you should be aware that any Personally Identifiable Information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personally Identifiable Information you choose to submit in these discussion threads.

Links

Please be aware that the Site may contain links to other sites that are covered by their own privacy policies. THA is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site. We recommend that our users read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects Personally Identifiable Information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

THA reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we decide to make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you via email or by posting a prominent notice on the Site, including the home page and other places we deem appropriate, at least thirty (30) days prior to implementing the change so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.

Legal Disclaimer

We may disclose Personal Information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to relevant legal requirements or to comply with legal process served on THA or the Site.
