We also use this information to improve our service, store and platform, to enable you to enjoy more variety of services provided, prevent or detect fraud, abuses of our website or any other illegal activities when using our services and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.

Affiliated Businesses that We Do Not Control:
We work closely with affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses operate stores at Car From Japan or sell offerings to you at Car From Japan.

They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Sometimes, we send offers to selected groups of customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your Customer Contact method preference.
