We keep all the personal data we collect for as long as necessary to properly serve our activities and for legitimate and essential business purposes, such as making data-driven business decisions about features and offerings, fulfilling our legal obligations, and resolving disputes.
At the data subject’s request (as determined in section 3), we will delete or anonymize their personal data in a way that does not identify them, except in cases where it is legally permitted or required to keep certain personal data, including situations such as:
(a) in the event of any problem relating to the individual, such as open credit or unresolved complaint or dispute, we will retain the necessary personal data until the problem is resolved;

We are committed to protecting the personal data we handle. We have implemented technical and organizational measures to help protect the security of personal data; however, it should be noted that no system is completely secure.
We have implemented policies, including encryption guidelines, access and retention guidelines, contractual clauses, and so on, to prevent unauthorized access to and unnecessary retention of personal data on our systems, taking all reasonable steps to protect all personal data to the greatest extent possible.
In a possible situation where we as the controller or operator of personal data breach the protection of such data in a way that poses a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, we will notify individuals of this as soon as possible.
From time to time, we may make unilateral changes to this Policy. In such cases, appropriate communication will always be sent regarding the changes.
Therefore, it is essential that each individual be sure to read all communications sent by Nidec Global Appliance carefully. The last update of This Policy was in April 2022.
