Your personal information
When we offer contests and other interactive activities online we sometimes ask for contact information, e.g., your e-mail address, telephone number, address and/or fax number. This information is collected only when it is voluntarily submitted and it is used solely for the purpose of contacting winners of our contest(s).
We strongly advise kids to get their parents' permission before they submit any personal information to this or any other site. Please be advised that if the information submitted is incorrect; for example, an e-mail address is misspelled, we may not be able to contact the winners of a contest. If an e-mail address "bounces" back to us and we have no other contact information, that entry is automatically voided. Therefore, please double-check the e-mail and other contact information you submit to us.
We do collect information about your browser type, what operating system your computer uses, your Internet provider (for example, sakuraofamerica.com, yahoo.com), but none of this leads us back to you. We also collect information on how many people visit our site each day and which pages they visited. Again, tracked information does not include any identifiable information about site visitors so none of this tells us anything personal about you. The information we collect does help us design our site (and future sites) in ways that you indicate are interesting and fun to visit.
You are safe visiting the sakuraofamerica.com site because we do not sell, distribute or lease any of the information submitted here. It is only viewed by Sakura employees and those that work on our site for us.

Enhancing the power to express
Our products are intended for use as drawing, sketching, painting, writing and crafting media only. They have not been tested for use on skin and we do not recommend that they be used for that purpose. Reading and following the product instructions on our packaging will help enhance your safety and enjoyment of our products.
Many Gelly Roll and Sakura fans have sent us unsolicited product ideas and other creative thoughts over time. We are thrilled to receive your feedback but we can't legally use what you send for anything. Sakura enjoys a long history of creative invention, beginning with Cray-Pas oil pastels in the 1920s, continuing on to the invention of gel ink in the 1980s, and including Pigma® color technology. We are committed to continually presenting new and unique products for all those interested in The Power to Express. So, keep looking for new Sakura products here and in your favorite stores.
