Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is applicable to the services offered by OtakuSync directly via our website. Our website contains links to other websites. Once redirected to another website, this Policy is no longer applicable. This version of the Privacy Policy is effective from September 2018.

OtakuSync truly respects the privacy of its users, and is fully committed to protect their personal information. This policy describes how we may collect and use personal information, and the rights and choices for our visitors and users regarding such information. At OtakuSync we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

By accessing or using any of our services, you signify your consent to this Privacy Policy. You may use our services only if you fully consent to the practices described in this policy.

Visitor and User Information

Like most website operators, OtakuSync collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. OtakuSync's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OtakuSync's visitors use the website. From time to time, OtakuSync may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

OtakuSync also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our site. OtakuSync only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that site commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to OtakuSync's websites choose to interact with OtakuSync in ways that require OtakuSync to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OtakuSync gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who try to register on our site to provide a username and email address. In this case, OtakuSync collects such information only in so far as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with OtakuSync. OtakuSync does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

OtakuSync may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, OtakuSync may monitor the most popular posts on this site or use DISQUS comment system service to moderate comments on this site. OtakuSync may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OtakuSync does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

OtakuSync discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:

  • (i) need to know that information in order to process it on OtakuSync's behalf or to provide services available at OtakuSync’s websites, and
  • (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using OtakuSync's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OtakuSync will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, OtakuSync discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when OtakuSync believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OtakuSync, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an OtakuSync website and have supplied your email address, OtakuSync may occasionally send you an email to tell you about your account information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. If you send us a request (for example via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

OtakuSync takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Access to information

You have the right to request access to the information we have on you. You can do this by contacting us at We will make sure to provide you with a copy of the data we process about you. In order to comply with your request, we may ask you to verify your identity. We will fulfill your request by sending your copy electronically, unless the request expressly specifies a different method. For any subsequent access request, we may charge you with an administrative fee.

Information Correction & Deletion

If you believe that the information we have about you is incorrect, you are welcome to contact us so we can update it and keep your data accurate. Any data that is no longer needed for the purposes specified above will be deleted. If at any point you wish for OtakuSync to delete information about you, you can simply contact us.

Account Connection

A significant benefit and innovation of OtakuSync's Services is that you can connect your Account with a third-party account or platform. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, an "account connection" with such a third-party is a connection you authorize or enable between your Account and a non-OtakuSync account, or platform that you lawfully control or own. When you authorize such a connection, OtakuSync and the third-party will exchange your Personal Data and other information directly.

Examples of account connections include:

  • linking your Account to a social media account or social messaging service
  • connecting your Account to a third-party data aggregation, if you provide such company with your Account log-in credentials or
  • using your Account to allowing OtakuSync to fetch your data.

If you choose to create an account connection, we may receive information from the third-party about you and your use of the third-party's service. For example, if you connect your Account to a social media account, we will receive Personal Data from the social media provider via the account connection. We will use all such information that we receive from a third-party via an account connection in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

If you authorize an account connection to a third-party account or platform, such as a social media account, you may be able to manage your connection preferences from your Account or the third-party account or platform. Please refer to the privacy notice that governs the third-party platform for more information on the choices you may have.

If OtakuSync, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that OtakuSync goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of OtakuSync may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
