At the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (hereafter referred to as "CLAIR"), we strive to handle personal information with the utmost care. We have therefore set the following guidelines in order to comply with the laws and regulations regarding the protection of personal information set forth by the Japanese government (hereafter referred to as "the laws and regulations").
1. System for an appropriate handling of personal information
CLAIR has appointed a person responsible for the overall management and protection of personal information and data. This person will make sure that personal information is managed appropriately, as well as explain to employees the appropriate way to collect and manage such data.
2. Collecting personal information
CLAIR will collect personal information in an appropriate manner.
3. Purpose of use
The personal information collected will only be used for the implementation of the projects and programs defined in CLAIR's endowment act, to perform regular general office duties, send announcements, brochures and similar materials, or send information and communications regarding the JET Programme and other training programs.
4. Management of personal information
CLAIR will maintain the accuracy of the personal information and take all appropriate measures in order to prevent leakage, loss, or damage of personal information.
5. Disclosure of personal information to a third party
CLAIR will not disclose any personal information to a third party without that person's consent, except in cases determined by the "laws and regulations".
6. Release, correction, and erasure of collected personal information
Those who wish to be informed about the purpose of use; wish to release, correct or erase the information provided; do not wish their personal information to be disclosed to a third party; should make a written request to CLAIR
7. Continued improvement
CLAIR pledges to take any measure that is deemed necessary and appropriate to improve the protection of personal information.
