Bioneer Corporation (hereinafter, the “Bioneer”) values users’ personal information, complies with statutory obligations on protection of personal information such as the Act on Protection of personal information, and has created a Policy to manage personal information to protect the users’ right and interest to the maximum extent possible.
information (as defined below) collected from Bioneer online resources and communications (such as Web sites, e-mail, and other online tools) that display a link to this policy. This policy does not apply to personal information collected from offline resources and communications, except in cases where such personal information is consolidated with personal information collected by Bioneer online. This policy also does not apply to third-party online resources to which Bioneer’s Web sites may link, where Bioneer does not control the content or the privacy practices of such resources.
We only collect personal information about you only if you choose to give it to us. We do not share any of your personal information with third parties for their own marketing use unless you explicitly give us permission to do so. Please review this Privacy Statement to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect information online.
There are two general methods that Bioneer uses to collect information from you online:
Information We Get
Personal information: You can visit our Web sites without providing any personal information. We may collect your personal information (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or other identifying information) only when you choose to submit it to us. We may also collect health information about you that you provide by responding to our questions or surveys.
Automatically Collected Information
We and some third-party providers we work with automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our sites and in some e-mails we may send each other. Automatic technologies and services we use may include, for example, Web server logs/IP addresses, cookies, Web beacons and third-party application and content tools.
Web Server Logs/IP Addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Bioneer collects IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners and/or vendors to conduct site analysis and Web site performance review.
Cookies. A cookie is a piece of information that is placed automatically on your computer’s hard drive when you access certain Web sites. The cookie uniquely identifies your browser to the server.
Services: We may provide services based on third party applications and content tools on certain Bioneer Websites. These third parties may automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our sites using such third-party applications and tools.
You have several choices regarding your use of our Web sites. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all by not entering it into any forms or data fields on our sites and not using any available personalized services. If you choose to submit personal data, you have the right to see and correct your data at any time by accessing the application. Certain sites may ask for your permission for certain uses of your information and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will work to remove your information promptly. As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you anonymously as you navigate our sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
Bioneer uses technology and security precautions, rules and other procedures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, improper use, disclosure, loss or destruction. To ensure the confidentiality of your information, Bioneer uses also industry standard firewalls and password protection. It is, however, your personal responsibility to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately secured and protected against malicious software, such as computer viruses and worm programs. You are aware of the fact that without adequate security measures (e.g. secure web browser configuration, up-to-date antivirus software, personal firewall software, no usage of software from dubious sources) there is a risk that the data and passwords you use to protect access to your data, could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties.
Use of Data
Bioneer, including the subsidiaries, divisions and groups worldwide and/or the companies we hire to perform services on our behalf will use any personal information you choose to give us to comply with your requests. We will retain control of and responsibility for the use of this information. Some of this data may be stored or processed at computers located in other jurisdictions, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. In such cases, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.
The information, which is also used for different HR purposes (Performance Management, Succession decisions or Development actions), will be helpful for us to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. It helps us also to personalize certain communications with you about services and promotions that you might find interesting.
Data Sharing and Transfer
Bioneer shares personally identifiable data about you with various outside companies or agents doing technological maintenance or working on our behalf to help fulfill business transactions, such as providing customer services, sending marketing communications about our products, services and offers. We may also share personally identifiable data with our company's subsidiaries and affiliates. All these companies and agents are required to comply with the terms of our privacy policies.
We may also disclose personal information for these purposes:
a) in connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates;
b) to respond to appropriate requests of legitimate government agencies or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations; or
c) where needed for corporate audits or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat.
No Third-Party Direct Marketing Use. We will not sell or otherwise transfer the personal information you provide to us at our Web sites to any third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we provide clear notice to you and obtain your explicit consent for your data to be shared in this manner.
E-mail a Friend or Colleague. On some Bioneer sites, you can choose to send a link or a message to a friend or colleague referring them to a Bioneer Web site. E-mail addresses you may provide for a friend will be used to send your friend information on your behalf and will not be collected or used by Bioneer or other third parties for additional purposes.
