How the Kinoshita Group handles personal information
The Kinoshita Group (hereafter referred to as “the Group”) recognizes the “Law Concerning the Protection of Personal Information” (hereafter referred to as “the Law”) and the importance of protecting personal information. To ensure the thorough protection of privacy and earn the trust of our customers, personal information is handled as follows.
The purpose of using personal information
The Group will clearly let the customer know when collecting personal information, such as by announcing it on our home page, and will use that information within the scope of necessity for achieving a purpose.
Here we will explain the details of the Group’s “handling of personal information”.
What kind of personal information is collected
In order to provide better services to our customers, the Group may collect their personal information to the extent that it is necessary for e-mail delivery services and conducting surveys.
The collecting is done by lawful and fair means. When collecting personal information from people other than the customer, consent will be obtained from the customer first.
The safe management of personal information
The Group conducts appropriate safe management by taking necessary measures to prevent leakage, loss, destruction, tampering, unauthorized access, etc. of the obtained personal information.
The Group has established regulations concerning the handling of customers’ personal information that are followed by each Group company. The employees (executives, staff, temporary staff, temporary employees) and others subcontracted to the businesses of each Group company, are thoroughly informed of these rules, which are in turn maintained and improved upon.
Provision and disclosure to a third party
The Group will not disclose or provide customers’ personal information to any third party without their consent, except when legally allowed to do so under the “Law Concerning the Protection of Personal Information” and other regulations.
Provision and disclosure to subcontractors
The Group may provide customers’ personal information to subcontractors of Group companies within the scope of necessity for achieving a purpose. Each Group company instructs and supervises the handling of customers’ personal information by the subcontractor.
In addition, we may share customers’ personal information throughout the entire Group, as well as businesses that may join it in the future, to be used within the scope of achieving a purpose in the company.
We may share personal information held by each of the companies that make up the Group, to be used within the scope of achieving a purpose.
Disclosure, change, and other requests relating to a customer’s personal information
In the case of a request such as disclosure, correction, deletion, and suspension of use from the customer themselves, the Group will act accordingly to the personal information stored by each Group company.
