Privacy Policy

Effective 1/2/2020

Introduction

uchisen takes your privacy very seriously. We don't collect any information on our own (besides that which is explicitly given, i.e. email address during account registration or address information when ordering physical goods). The only info not explicitly given that is collected is done by third party tools that uchisen employs (more information available in Sections 2 and 3).

1.) Personal Data

uchisen only collects personally identifiable information (email, name, address) when explicitly given from users.
Below is a list of all personally identifiable information collected by uchisen:

Information collected when logging in through social sites, such as when using the "Continue with Google" or Continue with Facebook" buttons, we collect the email address used on those accounts. Ammendments can be made to personal data by changing it in the settings page or by emailing admin@uchisen.com.

2.) Usage & Analytics

uchisen uses an analytics tool, "Google Analytics", provided by Google, Inc., to see usage trends on the site over time and to make important improvements to usability, etc. The information collected is made anonymous by Google, so none of it is directly identifiable.
For more information, please read the Google Analytics Terms of Service and Google's Privacy Policy.
To opt out, see Section 4, "Opting out of Cookies Usage".

uchisen uses reCAPTCHA, also provided by Google, Inc. This is used in order to fend against spam attacks on certain web forms (i.e. account creation, submitting feedback, etc.). This works by checking Google cookies left in users' browsers and collecting more information when filling out the forms.

uchisen uses Stripe to process payments. If you purchase goods from uchisen, your information is sent to Stripe and processed on their servers. More information can be found in their privacy policy.

3.) Cookies

Cookies are small text files stored in your browser. uchisen collects no first-party cookies and stores only two, in order to remember users if they choose to stay logged in or if they use the "Sign in with Google" feature. However, we employ the tool Google Analytics on our site that collects third-party cookies. We do this to see user trends in use of our website. Google tracks preferences during your visits to the website using cookies to help us make important changes to the website, i.e. fixing page layout if there's a large drop-off of users, etc. To opt out of this, see Section 4, "Opting out of Cookies Usage".

4.) Opting Out of Cookies Usage

To opt out of this, Google has created an opt out extension tool available here. In order to have uchisen not store any cookies, simply uncheck the "stay logged in" button when logging into the site. To fully block cookies usage, block them by changing your cookies settings in your browser.

5.) Making a "Do Not Track" Request

When making a "Do Not Track" request, Google Analytics will stop collecting data. uchisen will continue not collecting data (unless that which is explicitly requested and freely given).

6.) Securtiy

Security is very important to uchisen, which is why we use many up-to-date methods of storing and transmitting sensitive. However, no security suite is 100% perfect, so we cannot guarentee absolute security.

7.) Changes to this Policy

This privacy policy is effective as of January 2nd, 2020 and will remain effective except until changes are made. We reserve the right to make changes in the future, and by continuing use of our services constitues your acknowledgement of the policy and any changes made.

Notification of changes to the privacy policy will be emailed to all users who have email notifications turned on.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy, please contact us.
