Konica Minolta adopted this forward-thinking Global Data Protection Policy as part of the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enforced from 25 May 2018. Described as the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years, GDPR has led to widespread changes for businesses – both EU-based and non-EU-based companies processing personal data from EU citizens – by significantly enhancing the rights and protection of individuals.
As a growing global company engaged in various business areas, We, Konica Minolta Group recognise that the confidence of our customers, business partners, officers and employees is our most valuable asset. Konica Minolta Group also recognises that we are, not only to provide the best products and services, but also to meet the highest standards regarding compliance and social responsibility.
Konica Minolta Group is committed to respect the privacy of our customers, business partners, officers and employees and to protect the personal data of our customers, business partners, officers and employees.
This policy applies to Konica Minolta, Inc. (“Konica Minolta”) and all of its affiliated companies (“Group Companies”) and our officers and employees. “Affiliated” in this instance means, that Konica Minolta may enforce the adoption of this Policy directly or indirectly, on the basis of voting majority, majority management representation or by agreement. Konica Minolta and Group Companies (“Konica Minolta Group”) establish and enforce internal rules such as regulations and procedures in accordance with this Policy.
This Policy sets forth the basic principles of Konica Minolta Group’s data protection and data security standards and ensures compliance with national and international data protection laws in force all over the world. It therefore comprises the internationally accepted data protection principles, intending not to replace, but to supplement the respective national data protection and privacy laws (“National Legislation”). This means, that the content of this Policy has to be observed in the absence of a corresponding National Legislation or if a National Legislation provides lower requirements than this Policy. On the other hand, a National Legislation always takes precedence in case of a conflict with this Policy or if the National Legislation provides stricter requirements than this Policy.
This Policy extends to all processing of personal data. In countries where the data of legal entities are protected to the same extent as personal data, this Policy applies equally to data of legal entities. Anonymized data, e.g. for statistical evaluations or studies, is not subject to this Policy.
Each Konica Minolta Group company shall appoint a qualified person, who is responsible for the implementation and observance of the aforementioned principles.
