2. Protection of Personal Information
How we protect personal information:
・We adhere to the required company structure regulated by the “Act on the Protection of Personal Information” and other guidelines.
・We restrict the use of personal information to only those employees who handle customer service, and maintain strict rules regarding the storage and management of personal information.
・Regarding stored personal information, we protect it with a special authorization system which requires an account name and password that can only be accessed by company employees who are in charge of customer service. We strictly manage log-in information in order to prevent the leakage and loss of the account name and password.
