3. What Type of Information Do We Collect and Use?
When you visit the Yamaha Website, we may collect passive
information about your visit. Passive information is any form
of aggregate data, navigational data, tracking data, click-stream
data, or historical data, which does not on its own personally
identify you. Passive Information includes information collected
through cookies and web beacons. When you apply for extended
service through our YES section, complete a survey, subscribe

Yamaha Website, we may also obtain and collect personally
identifiable information. Personally identifiable information
is information collected online that personally identifies
you, such as by name, email address, or mailing address. Yamaha
provides you with the ability to "opt-out" of certain
uses of such personally identifiable information.

agreement concerning the information. Yamaha will not, however,
disclose any personally identifiable information for use in
connection with a third party's marketing efforts.
6. Aggregate Information
Yamaha may share aggregate statistical information with business
partners, sponsors or other third parties, but none of them
receive personally identifiable information. For example,
we may tell a third party that X number of visitors visited
a certain area on a website, or that Y number of men and Z
number of women applied for extended service, but we would
not disclose anything that uniquely identifies those individuals.

Your browser software includes a feature called "cookies."
We may use "cookies" to enhance your experience
with our site. If enabled, cookies may store small amounts
of data on your computer about your visit to the Yamaha Website,
including your page preferences. Cookies tell us nothing about
you personally, unless you specifically give us additional
information. Yamaha does not merge or associate our cookie
information with any personally identifiable information obtained
by us or from third parties. Cookies simply assist us in tracking
which of our features you like best and what content you may
have viewed during past visits. When you re-visit the Yamaha
Website, cookies can enable us to customize our content according
of your return visits to the Website; (ii) accumulate anonymous,
aggregate, statistical information on website usage; (iii)
deliver content specific to your interests or past viewing
history; and (iv) save your password so you don't have to

9. P3P (Platform for Privacy Preference) Conformance
Our cookies conform to the emerging P3P privacy standard,
developed by the World Wide Web Consortium. P3P provides a
simple, automated way for users to control the use of personal
information. Browsers like Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0
conform to the P3P standard. At its most basic level, P3P
is a standardized set of multiple-choice questions, covering
together, they present a clear snapshot of how a site handles
personal information. P3P-enabled browsers can "read"
this snapshot automatically and compare it to the consumer's
own set of privacy preferences. P3P places privacy policies
where users can find them, in a form users can understand,
and, most importantly, enables users to act on what they see.
10. IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol ("IP") address is a number
assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet.
An Internet Service Provider ("ISP") typically assigns
a random dynamic IP address at the time of your dial-up. For
local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem
users, a static IP address may be permanently assigned to
a particular computer. Yamaha may record the IP addresses
of visitors to its Website. While an IP address may reveal
your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity
solely based upon your IP address. Other websites you visit
have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of
those websites and their pages, but these IP addresses are
never associated with Internet users.
11. Web Beacons
The Website may contain web beacons, which are electronic
images (sometimes called "single-pixel gifs") that
allow us to count page views, or to access cookies. We may
also include web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters containing
graphics that we may send to opt-in subscribers, to count
the number of newsletters that have been opened and read.
Our web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor, or share
any personal information about our website visitors. They
are used only to compile our anonymous, aggregate statistics
about website usage.
12. Computer Profiles
Yamaha may also collect and accumulate other anonymous data
that helps us understand and analyze the Internet experience
of our visitors. For example, we may accumulate visitor data
relating to referring domain names, the type of browsers used,
operating system software, screen resolutions, color capabilities,
browser plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search
is personally identifiable and we only share this information
in the aggregate, reflecting overall website or Internet usage
13. Chat Rooms and Forums
The Yamaha Website may in the future include chat rooms, forums,
message boards, and/or news groups. If so, Yamaha as a passive
conduit will not be liable for any of the transmitted information.
Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public
information. You should exercise caution before disclosing
your personal information via these public venues, which you
do at your own risk. If you do so, you may receive unsolicited
emails or "spam." Yamaha cannot safeguard the privacy
of personally identifiable information that is disclosed and
can be viewed or accessed online in this manner.
Some pages of the Yamaha Website use security measures to
protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information that
is transmitted through the Website. These pages use Secure
Socket Layer ("SSL") connections with 128-bit encryption
for certain transactions and confidential data. When you use
a secure browser, all information you submit comes to us over
the Internet in an encrypted form, with a digital certificate
issued by a third-party certification authority such as VeriSign®.
To view this certificate, click on the image of the closed
lock or the solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window.
We also maintain our servers in locked facilities with secure
access. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet
or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable
information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any
information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk.
Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort
to ensure its security on our systems. You can report network
abuse and any risk of security violations to us by emailing
15. Children's Online Privacy Protection
The Yamaha Website complies with the Children's Online Privacy
Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying
FTC regulation protects the privacy of children using the
Internet. Yamaha does not knowingly collect contact or personally
identifiable information from children under 13. The Yamaha
Website is not intended to solicit information of any kind
from children under 13, and is designed to block our knowing
acceptance of any such information, wherever age related information
is requested. It is possible that by fraud or deception we
may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If
we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information,
we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete
the information from our servers. If you want to notify us
of our receipt of information by children under 13, please
do so by emailing us at email@example.com.
