Our Values and Standards on Privacy
We respect our values regarding privacy in everything we do involving people, including how we apply privacy standards. The four privacy values include:
Respect: We recognise that privacy concerns are often related to the essential questions of who we are, how we see the world and how we define ourselves. We thus strive hard to respect the perspective and interests of individuals and societies and to be fair and transparent in how we use and share information about them.
Trust: We know that trust is vital to our success, and so we are working hard to create and maintain customer, employee, patient and other stakeholders’ trust, in relation to respect and protection of information related to them.
Preventing damage: We understand that misuse of human-related information can create tangible and intangible harm to individuals, so we try to prevent physical, financial damage, damage to their reputation or other privacy-related harm.
Compliance: We have learned that laws and regulations are not always consistent with the rapid advances in technology, data flow and associated changes in risks and expectations of privacy. We thus strive hard to comply with the spirit and rules of privacy and data protection laws in a way that demonstrates consistency and operational proficiency for our business operations at a global level.
