1. Confidentiality and Prevention of Freedom Infringement through Privacy Protection

We believe it is a fundamental right by law to protect private information collected during management activities from being leaked internally or externally, including information from employees, business partners and customers. We appointed a companywide Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to underscore our commitment. We make sure any individuals who handle personal information throughout the company and its subsidiaries understand the importance of protecting personal information.
