In order to ensure the smooth operation of the activities of UNIJAPAN, certain functions are delegated to outside companies.

5. Responses shall be made to all requests regarding Personal Information

UNIJAPAN will make every effort to maintain the Personal Information of participants in an accurate and up-to-date format. The disclosure or amendment of this information will be undertaken upon the direct request of the individual, and upon confirmation of his or her identity. When a participant requests that UNIJAPAN suspends use of or deletes their Personal Information, such action will be taken within a reasonable period of time, and upon confirmation that the request was made directly by the relevant individual. The partial or complete suspension of use or deletion of a participant's information may unfortunately render UNIJAPAN unable to provide the requested services to participants. (Moreover, in some cases the suspension of use or deletion of Personal Information may be constrained by the relevant laws and regulations.)
