Privacy Policy


The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you that General Incorporated Association Shikaku (“we”) handles the Personal Information appropriately by recognizing its importance.

Definition of Personal Information

Any and all terms used in this Policy will be interpreted as defined in the Act on the Protection of Personal Information of Japan.

For purposes of this Policy, the term “Personal Information” means information on any living individual, which identifies a specific individual by name, date of birth and other details (meaning any and all matters (excluding the individual identification code defined in the Act on the Protection of Personal Information) described or recorded in documents, drawings, data and other materials or provided by sound, motion or other methods, and the same applies below) contained in such information.

We will not collect information which is the “individual identification code” or “special care-required personal information” defined in the Act on the Protection of Personal Information. Should we need to acquire such information for unavoidable reasons, we will obtain your consent to such acquisition and the purpose of use of such information in advance.

Purpose of Use

We may use your Personal Information for the purposes of:

provision and operation of services;

distribution of notification or information to you;

identity verification and authentication;

responding to inquiries;

investigation, statistics and analysis of usage trends; and

maintenance, improvement and fixing of failures of the system.

Provision for Third Party

This website is operated and owned by us.

We will not provide your Personal Information for any third party or use it for any purpose other than the purposes, which are consistent with our primary operational objectives, without your prior approval unless otherwise set forth in the Act on the Protection of Personal Information or other laws and regulations. For clarity, such provision of information for a third party does not include provision of information for any contractor appointed by us to perform services for us as necessary when we provide services for you. If we appoint a contractor to perform services for us, we will select a contractor on the condition that such contractor has a sufficient level of personal information protection and appoint such contractor to perform services after executing a non-disclosure agreement.

Disclosure of Information

We will not sell or loan the Personal Information to any third party unless:

your consent to the provision of information is obtained;

we are required by any court, public prosecutors office, police or tax office, or any agency or organization that has authority similar to that of such court, office or police to disclose the Personal Information in accordance with the laws and regulations;

you violate any law or regulation or breach the Terms of Use, or unless the provision of the Personal Information is deemed necessary for protecting any right, property or service of a third party, in both of which cases it is difficult to obtain the consent of the individual in question;

we disclose the Personal Information to any person who assumes the obligation of confidentiality to us, which is necessary to perform services; or

disclosure of the Personal Information is approved under the Act on the Protection of Personal Information or other laws and regulations.


Your information is protected with passwords for the protection of your privacy and security.

We reserve the right to use your Privacy Information collected by using access logs, IP addresses and other data without restriction in any form that does not identify you or any form that cannot be referred to or verified with the Personal Information.

Use of Analysis Tools and Other Tools

We will collect the Privacy Information by using analysis tools including Google Analytics.

Part of the advertisement and other information posted on this website is displayed by using a behavioral targeting system provided by a third party other than us, which uses cookies including Google AdSense.
