The Company works to protect personal information appropriately by establishing specified rules and a management system according to the policy of protecting personal information as described below.
For the Company, "personal information" means, of all information as defined in the following clauses, "information concerning an individual" who is alive and refers to information that can identify a particular individual (including information that allows users to access a database of personal information or something similar and to compare it such information with other information, thus allowing users to identify particular individuals). "Information concerning an individual" is not limited the name, sex, date of birth or other information that identifies an individual but refers to all information that indicates a fact, judgment, and/or evaluation. The information also includes information published by evaluation information, public publications, and something similar band information in the form of video and sound, regardless of whether it is encrypted.
If information about a death simultaneously constitutes information about an individual alive, such as a bereaved family, it will constitute information about the particular surviving individual.
The "surviving individual" is not limited to Japanese citizens but includes foreigners as well. Corporations and other associations do not correspond to "individuals" so that they do not include information about corporations or associations.
