From April 1, 2005, the “Personal Information Protection Law”, which is a law concerning the protection of personal information, was fully enforced in Japan. In addition, this law was amended on May 30, 2017, and was fully enforced.
This law requires the appropriate response of businesses that acquire and handle personal information in order to protect the rights and interests of individuals.
