Personal Information

In general, you can visit NARS on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our Web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information is compiled to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. NARS uses this information to measure the use of our site and to improve its ease of use.

There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name, address, and company information (information that is essential for NARS to provide the services that are requested by you). The personal information we collect is used only by us to respond to your inquiry. The amount of personal information you disclose to NARS is completely at your discretion. It is never mandatory for you to answer any question, although the extent of your answers may limit the services that NARS can offer you.
