PENTAX respects your right to privacy. We will take appropriate measures to protect the personal information you provide to us on this Site (the PENTAX Gallery). As our business changes, so may this policy. Please check back periodically for additions and modifications.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We will not disclose, sell, rent or trade personal information without your consent, except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested PENTAX service. All personal information collected by PENTAX for use on this site will be stored on secure servers.

Any submissions that you make to any public areas of the Site such as in the Artist Biography ("Public Areas") will be public and will not be considered personal information. We do not control, and are not responsible for, the actions of other users of the Site or of clients with respect to any information you post in public areas. In addition, information you submit to public areas may be collected and used by others to send you unsolicited messages and for other purposes.

In certain rare circumstances, we may be compelled by law to disclose your personal information, such as in connection with a lawsuit or other legal proceeding. In the event disclosure is required, we will use reasonable commercial efforts to try to secure confidential treatment of the disclosed personal information, including prohibiting use of the information for any commercial purpose.

In addition, we reserve the right to disclose certain information when, in our sole discretion, we determine that such disclosure is necessary to protect PENTAX or its employees, their rights or property, or to protect the physical safety or health of employees of PENTAX or a member of the general public.

Collected Information: How We Use It

We request and use only information that is absolutely essential to respond to your requests for information on our products or services and to inform you of services we think may be of interest to you. Our site uses your IP address (an IP address identifies the type of browser you are using i.e. Netscape; Internet Explorer by assigning a unique number) for general system administration to serve you better by diagnosing problems with our server.
