We may receive additional personally identifiable information from you through communications with the Site. If so, we will use that information to fulfill your request and for aggregate reporting before deleting it from our active system. For example, if you email us to offer suggestions about our service or website, we will use that information to give you an answer. But we will also use that information to make our service better by reporting your request, without any personally identifying information, in our site reviews.

You agree that when providing an e-mail address to Miyagi Kan Go Ju-Ryu Karate Do, unless otherwise requested by you, you agree to receive special offers and promotional material sent to the relevant e-mail address by Miyagi Kan Go Ju-Ryu Karate Do or third parties.
