⑩ Personal information may be used or provided to a third party without the user's consent in accordance with the law to the extent reasonably related to the purpose of collection.

3. Destruction of Personal Information
In principle, we destroy the member's personal information immediately at the moment when the members delete their accounts, but records of illegal use may be permanently stored to prevent illegal use.
In addition, when separate consent is obtained from the member for the retention period of personal information, or when the law imposes an obligation to retain information for a certain period, personal information is safely stored for that period.
When personal information is destroyed, it is destroyed in a way that cannot be reproduced. Information for which preservation obligations have been imposed by law will be destroyed in a way that cannot be reproduced after the expiration of the applicable period.
Files such as images, videos, and documents registered and saved by members are stored in the storage (Google Drive, etc.) of the external account linked by the member, so we do not have the right to destroy them even if the member withdraws.
4. Members’ rights and obligations
Members have the right to have their personal information protected, as well as the obligation to protect themselves and not infringe on the information of others. Members must be careful not to leak their personal information, including passwords, and be careful not to damage other's personal information, including postings.
Members are responsible for accidents caused by incorrect information entered by themselves. Members have an obligation to prevent unexpected accidents by entering personal information accurately and up to date.
If a member fails to fulfill the above responsibilities and damages the information and dignity of others, he or she may be punished under relevant laws.
