6. Techniques and management measures for personal information protection
The Company adopts corresponding techniques and measures to ensure the safety of customers' personal information and prevent, in its use of the information, the information from being lost, stolen, leaked, forged or damaged. The Company provides the customer with a password to protect personal data in his/her account. Only the customer can confirm and change his/her personal data. Therefore, the password should not be let known to other people. The Company advises that the customer close the browser window after logging out of the account. When using a computer shared with others or a computer at a public place (such as company, school, library, and Internet cafe), the customer should pay more attention so that no personal information may be disclosed unwittingly.

To protect customers' personal information and prevent hacker intrusions and computer virus attacks from causing information leak or damage, the Company backups the data all the time, and initiates backup procedures to protect it.

It also uses an anti-intrusion system to defend against illegal log-in attempts and ensure the security of the system.

The Company limits the number of personnel with access to customers' personal information to a minimum. To ensure the security of the information, the Company, when necessary, holds training sessions for this personnel, asking them to strictly follow its guidelines on personal information protection. The arrangement is aimed at finding problems early on and solving them as soon as possible.
