(Establishment of Personal Information Handling Rules, Etc.)

  • To ensure the proper handling of Personal Data, we have established the Personal Information Handling Rules regarding matters such as security management measures, proper handling of Personal Information, request for disclosure, etc. of Personal Data, and the handling of complaints.

(Organizational Security Management Measures)

  • In addition to appointing a Personal Information Administrator, we have clarified the scope of employees who handle Personal Data and the Personal Data handled by such employees and have established a system for reporting to the administrator when an employee becomes aware of the fact or signs of a violation of the Personal Information Protection Act or the Personal Information Handling Rules.
  • We regularly perform voluntary inspections regarding the handling of Personal Data and audits are performed by the Audit Dept.

(Personal Security Management Measures)

  • We exercise the necessary and appropriate supervision over employees based on the Personal Information Protection Rules, such as providing periodic training to employees regarding precautions for the handling of Personal Data.
  • Matters regarding confidentiality are set forth in the work rules.

(Physical Security Management Measures)

  • Entry into our offices is managed through the use of IC cards, etc. and security measures have been implemented.
