1. Handling of Personal Information
HEISHIN will appoint personnel responsible for handling the personal information of our customers and managing it appropriately as stipulated in rules set forth below.
2. Acquiring Personal Information
When asking our customers for their personal information, HEISHIN will inform our customers in advance for what purpose their personal information (such as name, address, phone number, email address, etc) will be used, and about customer support. All of this will be done only when appropriate.

In some cases, HEISHIN may consign the handling of personal information to our affiliated companies or to a third party company in order to enhance our quality of customer service. When doing so, HEISHIN will select a consignee who meets our standards for properly handling personal information, and set rules to ensure that the consignee implements appropriate management of said information to protect our customers.
4. Provision of Private Information to Third Parties
HEISHIN will not provide any customer's personal information to third parties without the consent of the customer; this excludes its sales groups and affiliated companies for the purpose of joint use or providing information to commissioned partners. However, when the purpose of personal information concerns the protection of human lives or assets based on laws and ordinances, or cooperation with public organizations, such as police or courts, is required the personal information may be submitted without customer consent.
5. Disclosure of Private Information
HEISHIN will disclose personal information when the customer expresses the will to present his own personal information for modification, addition, partial deletion or suspension of its use, or complete deletion through HEISHIN's regular procedure, HEISHIN will implement an investigation without any delay and when such request deemed necessary, HEISHIN will carry out the request without fail.
Exceptions to the above includes cases when disclosing personal information of said customer causes extreme inconvenience to HEISHIN corporate activities or when it may infringe upon the lives of individuals, bodies, assets or other rights it may be infringed by doing so.
6. Securing and Enhancing Information Security
HEISHIN will conform to strict standards of information security to ensure the precision and safety of personal information.

9. How HEISHIN Handles Personal Information on the Web Site
HEISHIN will not collect personal information that clearly identifies individual customers, such as name, address, phone number, or email, on our website without express permission from the customer.
However, information which does not identify individual customers is collected through the website. For example, we may collect information about which pages on our website a customer visits. Such information may be used to improve the contents of the website in the future.
When we do request a customer's personal information, we will ensure its safety by using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or equivalent security technology in order to defend against any illegal access from third parties.
