Data Security

In consideration of the importance of the protection of personal data, the KADOKAWA Group works to observe the Act on the Protection of Personal Information and other related laws and regulations and to protect customer privacy. Access control is implemented at service sites that hold personal information, which is stored in encrypted form. KADOKAWA CORPORATION DX Strategic Architect Division, as the department responsible for information security in the Risk Management Committee, works to identify and respond to data security risks across the entire KADOKAWA Group.

Basic policies on information security are specified at DWANGO Co., Ltd. and KADOKAWA ASCII Research Laboratories, Inc., where digital businesses are widely developed. Additionally, DWANGO implements training on privacy and data security for recently graduated and mid-career employees when they join the company, as well as e-learning-based training for all employees. We will work to spread information on the importance of data security by holding e-learning-based training for all Group employees, distributing security manuals, and more.
