Use of the Marubeni-Komatsu website
If you are a user with public access, the Marubeni-Komatsu website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs a number called your IP address which is automatically recognised by the system (see data collected below). Only personal information that you have given permission to Marubeni-Komatsu to collect, say via an enquiry form will be recorded.
We will continually review and update this privacy notice to reflect changes in our services, as well as to comply with changes in the law. When such changes occur, we will revise the ‘last updated’ date at the bottom of this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
In common with most websites, this site automatically logs certain information about every request made to it and records from which IP address the request was made*. This information is used for system administration, for bug tracking, plus analysing and producing usage statistics. The logged information may be kept indefinitely. In conjunction with third parties we may collect information about your IP address. This is mainly statistical and we’ll never be able to identify individuals from it.
Relevant subsets of this data may be passed to computer security teams as part of investigations of computer misuse involving this site or other computing equipment at Marubeni-Komatsu. Data may be passed to the administrators of other computer systems to enable them to investigate problems over access to this site or of system mis-configuration. Data may also be passed to third parties working with Marubeni-Komatsu who provide web services to us. In these cases it will be covered by appropriate non-disclosure agreements. Otherwise the logged information is not passed to any third party unless this is required by law. Summary statistics are extracted from this data and some of these may be made publicly available, but those that are do not include information from which individuals could be identified.
*You should appreciate that a log is an electronic record of what a server sees, not necessarily what was initially sent. If a request is sent via a proxy server the log file will show the proxy’s address, rather than the original senders IP address.
