SRC Privacy Policy

By offering various Internet-related products, services, and solutions, SRC Incorporated ("SRC") contributes to society as a global leading company which realizes an "information society friendly to humans and the earth" through innovation. 
In working toward the realization of such a society, SRC recognizes that the protection of personal information is its social responsibility, and has established a policy for the protection of personal information. Efforts are constantly being made to implement and maintain the policy. This privacy policy sets forth our principles as follows (note that the original is in Japanese): 
  • SRC obtains, uses and provides personal information properly based on Japanese Industrial Standard's "Personal Information Protection Management Systems - Requirements (JISQ 15001:2006)". SRC assigns a person in charge of protecting personal information at each of its relevant divisions, taking account of its organizational structure. Among other things, SRC takes appropriate measures not to handle personal information other than for the specified purposes. 
  • SRC abides by the laws, regulations and guidelines of Japan pertaining to the protection of personal information. 
  • SRC makes efforts to implement, through the adoption of necessary and appropriate security measures, the security control of personal information handled by SRC, including protection from disclosure, loss or damage. 
  • SRC appropriately responds to complaints and requests for consultation with respect to SRC's handling of personal information and its personal information protection management system. Please contact the designated person or place for inquiries. 
  • SRC makes efforts to continuously improve its personal information protection management system, including this policy.
(This policy applies only to SRC Information's Privacy Practices, not to those of other SRC Group companies. Please contact each SRC Group company for their Privacy Policy.)
