The personal information we do collect is used only to process a request for information or for marketing our products or services. We do not sell, rent or transmit personal information to other organizations.

Our web server collects the domain names, like komatsu.com, of visitors to our site. This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, and other relevant statistics. This information is collected to measure site usage. Komatsu's site may contain links to other non-Komatsu sites, however, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.


Komatsu encourages parents or guardians to participate with their children in online activities on certain of our sites that are designed for children. No information should be submitted to or posted at any Komatsu site by children without consent of their parent or guardian.

Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, Komatsu does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, from our guest, who identify themselves as children. In addition, when a child registers to participate in certain free online internet activities, like contests, he/she is required to provide the e-mail address of a parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that Registration. No information collected from children is used for marketing or promotional purposes, whatsoever, either inside or outside of Komatsu except as explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions (and in that case the information collected is only used for that specific contest or promotion).

Although we may allow children to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a child wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images of contests winners requires parental or guardian permission.
