Here at Mediford Corporationwe realize our corporate social responsibility as a company involved in the healthcare industry and in peoples' health; in realizing this we take the appropriate measures to ensure that we strictly comply with all rules and regulations governing the protection of personal information and we believe such operations to be part of the company's core operating policies. In order for us to be able to achieve such high standards all of the company's employees recognize the importance of protecting personal information.
This is underpinned by our development of a management responsibility framework to ensure that personal information maintained by mediford is not subject to any leakage or misuse.
Any personal information collected and maintained by mediford will only be carried out where necessary as part of the stipulated scope of the company's operations. In principle the company will not handle such personal information for purposes beyond their original intended use without first acquiring the consent of said person in advance, and we will take the relevant measures to ensure that any such incidents do not occur.
As part of our ongoing efforts to provide our clients with an improved service, mediford may outsource certain elements of the company's operations-such as the handling of personal information within the scope of intended use-to selected subcontractors (including our group companies). Any such information is only outsourced to subcontracted companies that have been carefully selected as being capable of handling this information in an appropriate manner and that are compliant in efforts in carrying out personal information management.
The company, with the exception of certain situations stipulated by law or related regulations, will not provide third parties with any personal information without first acquiring the consent of said person or said consent through the offices of the relevant medical institution.
The company is committed to promoting improvement of security measures in terms of facilities, equipment, systems, and work environment. In order to prevent any leakage, loss, or damage to personal information that the company maintains, we are currently implementing a number of practical measures to ensure these do not occur.
Mediford Corporation is fully compliant with all laws and regulations regarding the handling of personal information, and ensures that it follows all national guidelines relating to such issues and any other appropriate rules and regulations.
The company maintains a helpdesk to deal with any complaints or enquiries regarding our handling of personal information or concerning the company's management system used in the protection of personal information.
The company has established and implemented a management system* for protecting personal information and makes constant efforts to continually revise and improve this.
