We do not sell or share the personal information of users we actually know are less than 18 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the user who is between 13 and 18 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a user less than 13 years of age. Users who opt-in to the sale of personal information may opt-out of future sales at any time. To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may contact us to submit a request.

If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 (or 18) has provided TSURUMI PUMP with personal information, please contact us with sufficient detail to enable us to delete that information.
