We collect, maintain and use personal information you have voluntarily submitted to contact you, including via email, to respond to your comments or requests for information, or to contact you if needed in the course of processing or shipping products or services offered over our website.

Cookies are text information files that your web browser places on your computer when you visit a website.

Kikkoman may also use so-called "web beacons" to access the information contained in its cookies within the network of the Kikkoman sites, newsletter emails, and interactive banner ads.

Privacy of our e-mail lists:

Kikkoman maintains several e-mail lists to keep Kikkoman customers, the press, and interested members of the general public informed about breaking events. Individuals must affirmatively request to join our mailing lists by signing up through a form on our web site. We do not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease the addresses on our list to anyone. In addition, we configure our database to make e-mail addresses of our list subscribers available only to authorized Kikkoman staff, and reject requests for addresses from any other source.

We take steps to make all information received from you online as secure as reasonably possible against unauthorized access and use.
