MBC is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to the MBC Website. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to the MBC Website. However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of the MBC Internet servers (e.g. “cookies”). This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Safari, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider. By having this information, web pages optimized for a particular visitor’s computer are automatically made available to that visitor. Other use of this information may include internal review of the number of visitors to this site but only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form. E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to MBC only when voluntarily submitted by the users. MBC will only use personally identifiable data provided at the MBC Website for the purposes described at the time it is collected (for example, the e-mail addresses visitors provide in order to receive e-mail alerts will only be used for the purpose of sending these e-mail alerts). The MBC Website, as well as any other third-party sites linked to from the MBC Website, may each have different privacy policies and practices. You should carefully review these other websites’ privacy policies in order to determine how each site may use any personal information you provide.
A Special Note for Parents Concerning Privacy
On sites specifically designed for children, MBC makes a special effort to encourage children to consult with their parents before furnishing data. However, MBC believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a “kid-friendly” online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
Unless otherwise specified, the materials in the MBC Website are presented solely for the purpose of entertainment and promoting programs and other products available in the areas served by MBC through its licenses. These included United States military bases in Japan but may also include other portions of the United States, its territories, possessions, and protectorates. This site is controlled and operated by MBC from its offices on Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. MBC makes no representation that materials in the MBC Website are appropriate or available for use in all locations, especially outside the United States. Those who choose to access the MBC Website do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with their local laws, if and to the extent local laws may be applicable. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
