American Football News Japan takes your privacy seriously.  Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how American Football News Japan (“AFNJapan”) treats personal information that AFNJapan collects and receives, including information related to your past communication with AFNJapan and your use of AFNJapan’s services.  Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that AFNJapan does not own or control, or to people that AFNJapan does not employ or manage.

Information Collected and Use

AFNJapan collects personal information when you visit, when you register with AFNJapan, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes.  AFNJapan may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.

When you register, we may ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, mailing address, occupation, industry, and personal interests.

AFNJapan automatically receives and records information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, AFNJapan cookie information, software and hardware attributes, and the page you request.

AFNJapan uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.


When a child under age 13 attempts to register with AFNJapan, we require consent of a parent or guardian to obtain parental permission.

AFNJapan does not contact children under age 13 about special offers or for marketing purposes without a parent’s permission.

AFNJapan does not ask a child under age 13 for more personal information, as a condition of participation, than is reasonably necessary to participate in a given activity or promotion.
Information Sharing and Disclosure

AFNJapan does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with AFNJapan under confidentiality agreements.  These companies may use your personal information to help AFNJapan communicate with you about offers from AFNJapan and our advertising/marketing partners.  However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.


We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of AFNJapan’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

We transfer information about you if AFNJapan is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, AFNJapan will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.


AFNJapan displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria – for example, men ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.


AFNJapan does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

AFNJapan advertisers include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).

AFNJapan works with vendors, partners, advertisers, and other service providers in different industries and categories of business.


AFNJapan may set and access AFNJapan cookies on your computer.

AFNJapan may permit other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to AFNJapan’s cookies.

AFNJapan may use web beacons to access AFNJapan cookies inside and outside our network of web sites and in connection with AFNJapan’s services.

You need to contact AFNJapan by email to edit your personal information including your email address, mailing address and marketing preferences.

AFNJapan reserves the right to send you certain communications relating to AFNJapan’s service, such as service announcements, administrative messages and AFNJapan newsletter, which are considered part of your AFNJapan membership program.

You can request deleting your membership by contacting AFNJapan by email.

Confidentiality and Security

AFNJapan limits access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.

AFNJapan has physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.
