This Privacy Policy (hereunder “Privacy Policy”) is applicable to all of the Services provided by Penta Security Systems Corporation (hereunder “PENTA”) on the PENTA Website (hereunder “Website”).

The term “personal information” means the information pertaining to an individual who is alive, and which contains information identifying a specific person with a name, a national identification number, or similar in the form of code, letter, voice, sound, image, or any other form (including information that does not, by itself, make it possible to identify a specific person but that enables identification of the specific person easily if combined with other information).

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to provide users, customers, and participants of PENTA’s marketing events, promotions, and subscriptions with an understanding of what kind of information PENTA collects, how it is used and with whom it may be shared, according to the list of requirements under Article 27-2 of the Act on Promotion of Information and Communication Network Utilization and Information Protection which this Privacy Policy is based upon:

  • Purpose of collection and use of personal information
  • Items of personal information and methods of collection
  • Disclosure to Third Parties
  • Rights of users and their legal representatives and methods for the exercise of such rights

Purpose of collection and use of personal information: PENTA collects personal information as necessary to provide a seamless user experience.

Items of personal information and methods of collection: PENTA may collect various types of personal information, depending upon the purpose of the marketing event, promotion, or subscription. The categories of personal information PENTA collect may include but are not limited to: First and last name, home or physical address (including street name and name of a city or town), email address, and if users subscribe through the website, user subscription information.

Personal information will only be shared by PENTA to provide or improve the company’s products, services, and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. Information about users or participants may also be used for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance where disclosure is necessary or appropriate. Information may also be disclosed if disclosure is deemed reasonably necessary to enforce PENTA’s terms and conditions or protect business operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale, information may be transferred to the relevant third party. PENTA may delegate the handling of user’s personal information to third parties (“Service Providers”) when it is necessary to ensure seamless services.

Additionally, user’s personal information may be changed by contacting support. Participants are free to contact PENTA’s personal information manager in writing, by phone or by email through the contact information shown below for immediate action. Once the request to have the personal information corrected is processed, PENTA will not use or provide the user’s personal information until it is corrected as requested.
