The Yakult Group recognizes that properly handling and protecting information that can identify specific individuals, such as our customer's name, date of birth, address and email address, as well as information that includes personal identification codes, such as facial recognition data, fingerprint recognition data, passport number and driver's license number, (collectively referred to here as“personal information”) are our corporate responsibility. We are therefore carrying out the following practices.
Handling personal information
1. Use of personal information
We will use personal information only for the purpose of delivering products and useful information, providing services, and other legitimate purposes.
2. Collection of personal information
We will collect personal information in an appropriate manner, and will provide notification and announce their use and purpose.
3. Proper management of personal information
We are committed to preventing loss, destruction, falsification and leakage of personal information, as well as unauthorized access to personal information.
4. Restrictions on giving personal information to third parties
We will not disclose or give personal information to third parties without the consent of the individual, except as required by law.
5. Outsourcing contractor management
If the processing of personal information is outsourced to a contractor outside the company, we will conduct proper management and enter into a contract on personal information protection with the outsourcing contractor.
6. Disclosure, correction, addition, deletion and suspension of use of personal information
If the individual submits a request for disclosure, correction, addition, deletion or suspension of use of personal information, we will respond promptly and take the necessary measures.
7. Training and awareness programs
We will assign personnel at each company to supervise personal information protection, and provide continuous training and awareness programs to workers.
For handling personal information, we will comply with the relevant laws and regulations on the protection of personal information, and revise and improve this policy as necessary.
