We recognize the importance of personal information in today’s advanced information and telecommunications society, and view its proper management is a critical element of our corporate social responsibility.
To ensure necessary and appropriate protection of personal information, given the features of our business activities and the nature of the personal information we handle, we strictly comply with laws and ordinances and other standards relating to the protection of personal information, have put in place a privacy protection system, and have established the following policies to ensure privacy. In addition, our officers and employees strictly respect these policies when handling and managing personal information.
We have assigned a manager to oversee the protection and appropriate management of personal information.
We acquire personal information by legal and equitable means and use it only for purposes that are clearly specified in advance.
We appropriately and carefully manage personal information acquired. We also take security measures to prevent unauthorized access to personal information as well as the loss, destruction, falsification, and leakage of personal information.
When outsourcing the handling of personal information, we will insist that companies entrusted with the information appropriately manage personal information to prevent leaks or any misuse of information, and will oversee the management of that information.
We respect the rights of the owners of personal information, and will respond immediately with appropriate measures when requested by owners of information to disclose, correct, stop using, or eliminate the contents of their own information.
We repeatedly review our internal system for managing the protection of personal information and strive to ensure continual improvement and consistently appropriate performance.
