This site uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for various forms of communication. SSL is an encryption technology practically applied for communication on the Internet and is considered to be the most reliable of all technologies currently available. Personal information transmitted over the Internet is encrypted to prevent third-party access, so users can use the site safely.
On October 14, 2014, it was reported in the United States that the widely used SSLv3 encryption technology for communication on the Internet contains a severe security defect.
Although Osaka Gas has not yet detected any information leaks attributable to this defect, we are gradually implementing measures to enhance security levels with regard to this flaw.
The effects of such measures include rendering inaccessible certain pages on the Osaka Gas website due to the user’s computer environment or browser settings. Users may enable access by upgrading to the most recent version of the browser and changing the settings.
We ask for your understanding as we implement these measures to ensure the safe use of our services.
