Protection of Personal Information

The Center protects, as personal information, names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, names of workplace, and information which can identify a specific individual by descriptions other than the above (including such information that does not identify a specific individual by itself, but will allow easy reference to other information and will thereby enable the identification of the specific individual) that are collected by the Center in the course of its business activities through writing, electronic media, website or otherwise.The Center complies with applicable laws and guidelines in protecting such personal information.


The Center uses personal information it collects only for the purpose of conducting the following business activities, to the extent necessary:


  1. Internal examination relating to planning, proposing and hosting of conferences and events (including workshops), and communication to relevant parties in relation thereto;
  2. Conduct of questionnaire surveys for research and analysis purposes, and sending questionnaires
  3. Activities at JISTEC

Personal information collected will not be provided to third parties unless:

  1. consent is obtained from the data subject;
  2. requested by administrative agencies including the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, or local governments, and there are reasonable grounds for providing personal information and it is necessary to do so for such organization to perform their duties; or
  3. it is otherwise determined necessary under laws and ordinances.

Even in the cases where personal information is provided to a third party in accordance with the stipulations above, the Center takes necessary steps as required, including limiting the purpose of use or method of use.


The Center securely manages any personal information it collects in accordance with the aforementioned purposes of use, takes preventive and corrective measures for unauthorized access, loss, damage, alteration and leakage, and performs reasonable security procedures through thorough training of employees, improvement of system (including access restriction) and other means.


If handling of such personal information as collected by the Center is outsourced to a third party contractor, the Center will appoint an appropriate contractor in accordance with JISTEC rules and enter into a service agreement that includes provisions expressly stipulating whether subcontracting is permitted, confidentiality obligation of the contractor, term of contract, response to security incidents, return/discard of personal information at the time of termination of contract, and measures upon contractor’s breach of contract (including termination of contract).


The Center establishes an internal structure that allows swift response when a data subject inquiries about, or requests correction or deletion of, its personal information held by the Center.


We will seek further improvement with respect to protection of personal information on an ongoing basis by periodical, internal or external audit.
