Regarding the Handling of Personal Information

Invest Nagano (hereafter, this site) handles the collection, use, and management of personal information appropriately based on the “Nagano Prefecture Privacy Protection Ordinance (in Japanese).” We make every effort to safeguard personal information.

What Is Meant By Personal Information

Personal information is information pertaining to an individual, said information to include name, date of birth, and other descriptions that make it possible to identify a specific individual (including that which could be collated with other information to identify a specific individual). (Address, name, phone number, e-mail address, etc.)

Collection of Personal Information

When personal information is collected, the purpose of its collection will be clarified, and the absolute minimum information will be collected. Furthermore, when personal information is collected, it will be collected from the person himself or herself as a general rule.

The Use and Tendering of Personal Information

Personal information collected may not be used for any purpose besides that for which it was collected and may not be tendered to others, except where established by the Nagano Prefecture Privacy Protection Ordinance.

Management of Personal Information

Management of personal information in Nagano Prefecture involves both taking measures to prevent information leakage and storing it correctly. Furthermore, personal information which no longer needs to be stored will be erased promptly and without fail.
