Privacy Policy

Steps taken by JSCE to protect personal information

The Act on the Protection of Personal Information came into full effect on April 1, 2005, establishing rules on the handling of personal information to prevent infringement of the rights and interests of individuals due to improper handling of personal information. This law does not apply to academic societies such as JSCE, but as an organization that handles personal data on more than 40,000 members, we have decided to conform to this law to prevent infringement of the rights and interests of our members and other individuals by taking the steps outlined in the following Privacy Policy.
