We place cautionary information or markings to help avoid accidents caused by misuse or carelessness in the instruction manuals or on product surfaces to enable the customers to avoid a security incident in use of our products.

If serious security vulnerability, incident and/or accident is found with any of our products, we will report them promptly to the authorities concerned pursuant to relevant laws and regulations.
For any unforeseen product vulnerability or incident, we will forthwith proceed with fact confirmation and problem determination and, if security problems are found to have occurred or are feared to occur, take measures to prevent the resultant hazards from occurring and spreading, including product recall, and notify our customers and personnel concerned promptly by appropriate means of communication.
