DOCOMO Capital, Inc. (“DOCOMO Capital” “we”)
has long recognized that individuals with whom we conduct
business value their privacy. However, in order to conduct
global business in this increasingly electronic economy,
the collection of information is often necessary and desirable.
Because the success of DOCOMO Capital is dependent on building
and maintaining goodwill with our customers, we are committed
to implementing measures designed to protect the privacy
of those using our services.
Although we respect the privacy of all those who visit our
website and use our online services, we do collect information
your interaction with our website, and your registration
for and use of our online services. Except as set forth within
Conditions of Use and other published guidelines, we
do not release personally identifiable information about
our members and visitors without their permission.
Other than personally identifiable information included
in any online business plan submissions to us, all information
and materials you submit to us in connection with any business
plan submissions are governed by our Terms and Conditions
of Use. Please familiarize yourself with them, as your submission
of business plans constitutes your acceptance of those terms.
Please note that DOCOMO Capital reviews its privacy practices
from time to time, and that those practices are, therefore,
subject to change. We ask that you bookmark and periodically
review this page to ensure continuing familiarity with the
about privacy issues, to report a violation of our Privacy
Policy or to raise any other issue, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE INFORMATION WE GATHER.
DOCOMO Capital gathers two types of information about users:
(1) Non-personally identifiable information: When
visitors come to our website, we collect and aggregate information
indicating, among other things, which pages of the website
were visited, the order in which they were visited and which
hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information
involves the logging of the IP addresses, operating system
and browser software used by each visitor to our website.
Although such information is not personally identifiable,
we can determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet
Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her
point of connectivity. We also use “cookies” -
that is, small text files placed on a user's computer hard
drive - to help us determine the type of content and sites
to which a visitor to our site links, the length of time
each visitor spends at any particular area of our website
and the DOCOMO Capital services visitors choose to use. Cookies
also tell us which advertising a visitor has seen on our
site. Essentially, cookies are a visitor's identification
card for the DOCOMO Capital computers, or servers, that placed
them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed
them, and are unable to execute any code or virus. Cookies
allow DOCOMO Capital to serve you better and more efficiently,
and to personalize your experience at our website. Nevertheless,
you should be able to control how and whether cookies will
be accepted by your web browser. For more information on
how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying
(2) Personally identifiable information: In
certain areas of our website - for example, when registering
for one or more of our services or submitting business plans
- we may require that you provide us with personally identifiable
information (including, for example, first name, surname,
street address, email address, telephone number and, if applicable,
credit card information).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information
from children (defined herein as minors younger than thirteen
years of age) without obtaining parental consent. Before
registering for any of our services, we ask that children
the registration process, we encourage children to include
a parent or guardian in the process.
DOCOMO Capital does not control the acts of its members
or visitors. All members and visitors should be aware that,
when they disclose personally identifiable information in
a bulletin board, chat room, guestbook or other forum, the
information may be collected and used by others to send that
person unsolicited email from other parties outside DOCOMO
Capital. In the event that you encounter any user who is
improperly collecting or using information about you or other
users, please contact email@example.com.
HOW WE USE (AND DO NOT USE) THE INFORMATION WE GATHER.
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different
ways DOCOMO Capital uses the information that it gathers.
Keep in mind that, while we encourage all third parties involved
- including but not limited to our affiliates and advertisers
- to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our
visitors and members and to otherwise handle personal information
in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any
responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties,
including the manner in which they use information received
either from DOCOMO Capital or independently. Nevertheless,
in the event that you encounter any third party associated
with, or who claims association with, DOCOMO Capital, who
you feel is improperly collecting or using information about
you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org;
we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
(1) Non-personally identifiable information: DOCOMO
Capital uses non-personally identifiable information in aggregate
form to build higher quality, more useful online services
by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics
and behavior of our members and visitors, and by measuring
demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our
website. We provide statistical information based on this
data to advertisers, affiliates and other current and potential
business partners. We also use the aggregate data to inform
these third parties as to the number of people who have seen
and clicked on links to their websites.
The DOCOMO Capital website contains links to other Internet
websites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites
which may or may not be owned or operated by DOCOMO Capital.
Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible
for the privacy practices or the content of such websites,
including such sites' use of any information (such as IP
number, browser type or operating system) collected when
visitors to the DOCOMO Capital website click through links
to those sites. Even though such information might not identify
you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar
with the privacy practices of those sites.
(2) Personally identifiable information: DOCOMO
Capital provides notice to potential registrants that personally
identifiable information will be collected during the registration
process. Such notice is provided simultaneously with your
as notice that such information is collected under those
circumstances. Although you may not “opt out” of
the registration process, you may choose to “opt out” of
receiving promotional materials from DOCOMO Capital and/or
its affiliates, advertisers or other business partners. If
you do not “opt out” of receiving such promotional
materials, DOCOMO Capital reserves the right to release any
personally identifiable registration information regarding
you to third parties who provide goods or services that we
believe may be of interest to you. We will not release your
credit card information to third parties unless necessary
to complete a transaction between you and such a third party.
If you decide that you would like to discontinue receiving
promotional information from such third parties, please contact
those third parties directly, or contact DOCOMO Capital at email@example.com DOCOMO
Capital limits its own e-mail solicitations to those customers
who have not “opted out” of receiving such communications.
The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things,
will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide
the customer with a method of “opting out” of
receiving future communications of a similar nature.
In addition, DOCOMO Capital sometimes uses individual data
to “target” advertising - to decide which advertisements
and sponsor messages to show to which members. As an example,
if Sponsor Co. wishes to display their advertising only to
female users, DOCOMO Capital uses member registration data
to ensure that Sponsor Co.'s ads are displayed only to female
Finally, DOCOMO Capital may use individual members' data
to “pre-populate” forms which are displayed for
the purpose of collecting individual data by DOCOMO Capital
and/or its sponsors. In no case does pre-populating a form
automatically transfer any data to any advertiser or third
party. Only if the member voluntarily requests that such
data be transferred will any transfer take place - for example,
if/when a member clicks a “submit form” button
or other button.
We reserve the right to release information contained within
our access logs concerning any visitor or member when that
visitor or member is in violation of our Terms and Conditions
of Use or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is
reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity,
even without a subpoena, warrant or other court order, and
to release such information in response to court and governmental
orders, civil subpoenas, discovery requests and as otherwise
required by law. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies
in identifying those who may be using our servers or services
for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report
any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement individuals
or entities for investigation or prosecution.
If and when DOCOMO Capital sponsors promotions or sweepstakes,
or third parties sponsor promotions or sweepstakes in conjunction
with DOCOMO Capital, either DOCOMO Capital or the third party
will post relevant privacy information in the official rules
and/or registration area for the promotion or sweepstakes.
That privacy information, to the extent it conflicts with

that will remain within our databases, access logs and other
records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable
information. The residual information will not be used for
commercial purposes; however, we reserve the right, from
time to time, to recontact former customers or users of DOCOMO
In addition, we may sell or transfer assets or portions
of our business as we continue to improve our product and
