In addition to the purposes of use set forth in (1) through (7) above, the Company shall use personal information to the extent necessary for the purposes of use notified to the individual when the Company obtains the personal information. 

[When Personal Information Is To Be Provided To a Third Party] 

Money Forward i might provide your information to comply with legal obligations, including complying with the Companies Act, responding to subpoenas and other court orders, or implementing various shareholder policies, and as otherwise in compliance with the law and with our policies. Additionally, Money Forward i may share your Personal Information in connection with or during the negotiations of any merger, sale of all or part of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.  

The Company will not provide personal information to third parties other than as described above unless it has obtained the consent of the individual concerned or that is required by law. 

[Entrustment of Operations]  

The Company might entrust all or part of the handling of personal information to the extent necessary to achieve the purpose of use. 

 

[Voluntary Provision of Personal Information] 

The provision of personal information is voluntary, but if you do not provide the necessary personal information, the Company might not be able to respond appropriately to you. 

 

[Use of Cookies]  

The Company collects and analyzes information such as access logs (including information that has been automatically collected from browsers and applications such as viewed websites, information such as use environments, and activity history on websites that are integrated with advertising websites and the Company’s services through cookie syncing) using technology such as cookies and web beacons to understand how the Company’s websites and services are used, to operate and manage the Company’s websites and services, and to optimize advertising provided by the Company or third parties other than the Company. The Company also collects IP addresses to manage its websites and services. Although that information does not constitute personal information because it alone does not include information that identifies an individual, that information might be connected to personal information of customers, and in that case, the Company will treat that information as personal information. 

 

Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, the Sites may not recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser may tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.

[Controls for Do-Not-Track Features]  

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.
