With the exception of cases of legal disclosure requests; cases of illegal access, threats, or other unlawful acts; or other special reasons, we will not use the information acquired for any purposes other than those described in 3., nor will it be provided to any third party. However, statistical information regarding access to this website or nonidentifying information on users’ attributes may be made public.

We take all measures necessary to manage acquired information appropriately to prevent the leakage, loss, or destruction of the information.

6. Disclosure of personal information

(1) We do not collect names, birthdates, or any other information via this website by which users may be identified.

We are unable to respond to requests for release of information provided by a user, or to revise or delete information once it has been submitted by a user, due to the lack of identification procedures that would allow confirmation that the requester is that user.

This privacy policy applies only to this website.
