This site may measure the effect of this site and the Companies’ online advertising by obtaining and analyzing information such as what content the Customer viewed on the site, and from what site the Customer accessed this site.
When processing a Customer’s personal data for any purpose other than the above, we notify the Customer in advance of the purpose of such additional processing and matters necessary under the related laws and regulations, unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations.
When a Customer applies for the e-mail distribution service or to purchase goods, or otherwise makes any inquiry on this site, it may be necessary to provide the Customer’s personal data to the Companies. In such case, a Customer who does not provide personal data to the Companies may not be able to use some of the services.

The Companies make efforts to keep the contents of the personal data up to date, and to correct any error or deficiency therein.
Safety Measures for Personal Data
The personal data provided by Customers is managed in an appropriate and responsible manner by each division within the Companies that received the personal data. We have instituted measures for managing access to the personal data, restricting the means by which the personal data can be extracted, and preventing improper access from external sources. We strive to protect against the loss, theft, destruction, alteration, or leakage of personal data. We also strive to conduct activities to raise the awareness of protecting personal data for the employees processing personal data.
Individual Rights in regard to Personal Data

Moreover, with regard to the processing of personal data regarding a Customer, such Customer is entitled to raise an objection against the Companies or with the data protection authority that administers the residence of such Customer.

When these input forms are used, the content of communications is not encrypted. Please be advised that, when using such forms, it may be possible for third parties to improperly intercept the content of the communications and to read the same.
