Securing and Storing your Personal Information
We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We therefore provide appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your Personal Information. We use appropriate security measures on our websites, mobile apps and in our Services to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information in our control. These security measures include use of Secure Socket Layer, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, network monitoring, physical and site security, encryption, and passwords.
However, the Internet is an open environment and information may flow across various networks, some of which employ inadequate security measures, resulting in unauthorised access to information. Transmission of such information is therefore entirely at your own risk. While it is impossible to protect a website, mobile app or an online product or service completely, we work hard to keep your information safe.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and Personal Information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

The European Commission has made an “adequacy decision” with respect to the data protection laws of each of these countries. The transfer of Personal Information to each of these countries will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses as adopted and approved by the European Commission, namely, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the Republic of Korea, France and the United States of America including but not limited to, complying with the same laws that are in place within the European Union to your data security; and only using verified security-hosting companies who have the applicable security and safety measures in place.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal data that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
