Compliance Promotion System

mixi Group has established a common Code of Ethics for all Group companies, in which the importance of compliance is emphasized. The content of the Code is made known to all officers and employees through information systems and education. In addition, we provide our officers and employees with e-learning programs on laws, regulations, and rules that are related to the execution of the Group's business operations to improve their knowledge of laws and regulations and to raise their awareness of compliance-related issues.

We have also established an internal reporting system with a third party in order to check and prevent misconduct, including violations of laws, regulations, and the Articles of Incorporation. In addition, we have a system in place to eliminate antisocial forces from the Group's business.

The Compliance Division has been established as a specialized department to promote comprehensive compliance-related measures and to appropriately address individual compliance-related issues associated with business promotion.

The Group's Code of Ethics demands fair business practices, clearly stating the prohibition of profit sharing with antisocial forces, the prohibition of unfair competition with business partners, and the prohibition of bribes and similar misconduct.
