1.8 We wish to assure you that your personal information will be protected by high standards of security. Nikon will take all reasonable steps to keep secure any personal information we hold about you on secure servers. Notwithstanding our best efforts to protect your personal information, the nature of the Internet is such that data transmission over the Internet can never be fully secure.

It is solely your responsibility to maintain the secrecy of your membership User ID and password at all times.

1.13 Nikon will also not be aware if you become a resident in another country outside Malaysia and may therefore be subject to the rules and regulations of countries outside Malaysia in relation to the collection, processing, use and storage of personal information.
