In order to win the trust of our customers and other stakeholders, we will comply with laws and other regulations related to personal information protection and will establish our own voluntary rules and mechanisms.
In order to meet the demands of our stakeholders and prevailing conditions, we will review our voluntary rules and systems when appropriate and improve them even further.

Before acquiring personal information, we will either obtain agreement in advance from the person in question regarding our intended use of the information, or post public notification through our web site or similar means.

Once acquired, we will use personal information only for the purposes we have specified.
