Privacy Policy for Yakyubaka.com

The privacy of our visitors to Yakyubaka.com is important to us.

At Yakyubaka.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit Yakyubaka.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your internet protocol (IP) address, your internet service provider (ISP), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer), the time you visited our site, and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We use third party advertisements on Yakyubaka.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Japanese ads to someone in Japan, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing sports ads to someone who frequents sports sites).

Yakyubaka.com does use cookies to store information about you when you post a comment. The cookies are not used for tracking purposes; they make it so that you do not have to re-type all your information each time you leave a comment.

Yakyubaka.com also uses Google Analytics to help measure traffic and use.

DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Japan, you may see advertisements for hotels in Japan when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about baseball). DART uses "non personally identifiable information." It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html.

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in your security program. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or online accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

If you require any more information or have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us by email at info at yakyubaka dot com.
