Types of Information Collected by Falken
Subscriber Account Information
As a Subscriber, you voluntarily submit personally-identifying information (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) to Falken when you create an account. Falken records such personally-identifying information to enable you to access portions of this Site that are not accessible by Visitors.

Information Collected From Dealer Subscribers
A section of this Site, called the “Dealer Portal”, is accessible only by Subscribers who are also Falken's product distributors (each a “Dealer Subscriber”, and collectively the “Dealer Subscribers”). As a Dealer Subscriber, you voluntarily submit personally-identifying information to Falken when you place an order for Falken’s products using the Dealer Portal. Falken records such personally-identifying information to process your order. If you do not provide the personally-identifying information requested by Falken, you will not be able to place an order.
