1.Compliance with laws
With the recognition that proper management of personal information is part of compliance, we comply with the Act on the Protection of Personal Information and guidelines issued by the Personal Information Protection Commission. We will establish internal regulations about the handling of personal information and other internal rules, and keep every executive and employee informed about them.
We have a system to manage personal information appropriately, with a personal information administrator to control the operation of personal information management, and a group manager to oversee the handling of personal information in each applicable group.
3.Notes on collection of personal information
When we collect your personal information, we always specify the purpose for using the information, and show it explicitly or notify it to the applicable person or announce it to the public. Additionally, we always ask the applicable person for their consent before collecting sensitive personal information.
