To Conclude Our Business Activities Properly and Effectively

Risk Management

We seek to understand the various risks confronting the Pioneer Group and to take appropriate preventive measures. In the event of an emergency, we will respond quickly and in accordance with established procedures.

Company Information

We manage confidential company information related to technology development, product development, and the business of the Pioneer Group in an appropriate manner and in accordance with the company rules and policies. While employed at the company and after retirement, we will not divulge such information to third parties or use such information for unauthorized purposes. Moreover, we will not discuss confidential matters or display confidential documentation in locations where unintended disclosure could result, such as when traveling by public transportation or dining in public.

Intellectual Property

We maintain and manage the company's intellectual property including know-how obtained from technology developments by appropriate methods. We seek to protect such assets to avoid improper infringement thereof by third parties. Similarly, we respect the intellectual property rights of third parties and do not intentionally infringe upon such rights or contribute to or condone such acts of infringement.

Proper Management and Use of Company Assets

We maximize the value of tangible assets and intangible assets such as trademarks and intellectual property to increase the performance and contribute to the interests of the company. We seek to preserve and manage the assets of the company (including tangible and intangible assets, personal computers, and networks) in accordance with company policies and will use such assets for business purposes and in a socially responsible manner. We will not divert such assets for personal use or for purposes other than the originally intended business purpose.

Proper Accounting Treatments

We undertake all accounting activities properly and in good faith and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, including the maintenance of account ledgers and financial records. And not only officers and employees in charge of accounting and finance but also all individuals working at Pioneer Group shall observe applicable laws and regulations as well as company rules and policies at all times with regard to their work in order to avoid recording errors or confusions.
