CM understands that obtaining personal information from general consumers, customers and employees is essential for CM's business operations and publicly announces that CM has established and is currently implementing and maintaining the following Basic Policy for Protecting Personal Information in light of the need to protect such information.

CM strictly observes laws and regulations, guidelines, and other rules established by the Government regarding handling of personal information when CM handles personal information obtained or used in the course of business activities and personal information of employees.

CM specifies the purpose(s) of use and notifies the purpose(s) of use as well as contact details in advance when asking for or using personal information and obtains or uses personal information solely within the scope of the stated purpose(s) of use.
