We generally request that you provide your real name. Anonymous reports are also accepted, but please understand that there may be limitations to the investigation of the facts in such cases.

3. How We Respond to Reports

Reports made to the "Supplier Hotline" will be received by the Ryohin Keikaku Supplier Hotline office and investigated for accuracy. If corrective action is necessary based on the investigation results, we will promptly take action.
We guarantee that whistleblowers who provide information will not be treated unfairly, except in cases of false reporting or if the whistleblower themselves are involved in the misconduct.
Depending on the content of the report, it may take time to respond, or we may contact you by phone, email, or mail.
Also, during the investigation of the facts, we may require the cooperation of the whistleblower.

4. Handling of Personal Information

The personal information provided by the whistleblower will be responsibly managed by Ryohin Keikaku, and will be used solely to respond to the whistleblower. We will not disclose or provide any whistleblowers' personal information to Ryohin Keikaku Group subsidiaries and other third parties without the whistleblower's consent (except when required by law or the government).
In principle, we will not disclose or provide personal information to overseas subsidiaries of the Ryohin Keikaku Group.
However, if it becomes necessary to disclose or provide the whistleblower's personal information to an overseas subsidiary of the Ryohin Keikaku Group due to the content of the report, we will inform the whistleblower about the legal systems of the country where the information will be provided and the information management systems of our overseas subsidiary before obtaining the whistleblower's consent for the disclosure or provision.
Furthermore, if a subsidiary of the Ryohin Keikaku Group needs to contact with the whistleblower directly, we will obtain the whistleblower's consent to do so.
