Handling of personal information

You may be contacted by email for purposes of clarification if parts of your application are unclear.

Nikkei, as a secretariat of these webinar series collects personal information on the registration form such as name, country/region of residence, gender, age, industry, position, and email address.

Nikkei will use your personal information for the managing, contacting and sending necessary materials related to the webinar series. Nikkei will also use the information statistically for further development and enhancement of future events. However, Nikkei will not use a method that is likely to foment or prompt unlawful or unjust act in using your personal information.

Nikkei will provide your personal information to a third party only when we have a lawful basis for doing so.

Nikkei will provide personal information to some third parties such as service providers. Nikkei engages service providers who support the webinar series. These service providers include, for example, but not limited to, event agencies and event management service providers. They can only use your personal information under Nikkei’s instruction.

When we provide your personal information to a third party in a country or jurisdiction outside of Japan, we will do so after obtaining your consent providing you with general information on the personal information protection system in the country or jurisdiction, excluding the following cases:

  • In case Japanese laws and regulations approve that the country or jurisdiction has a personal information protection system equivalent to that of Japan; or
  • In case the third party has a system for taking continuous action equivalent to the obligation of a Japanese business operator handling personal information. In this second case, Nikkei will take proper measure for securing the continuous equivalent action of the third party.

Apart from the above, Nikkei may also provide your personal information to relevant third parties to comply with applicable laws, court orders or other valid legal processes, to enforce any of our other rights, to protect and defend Nikkei's rights, assets and properties, and to protect the safety, asset or property of you or the public.

Nikkei will endeavor to handle your personal information in compliance with the Personal Information Protection Law and other related laws and regulations. Please click here for further information on the Nikkei’s position on handling of personal information.

The below shall apply only to the handling of personal data of persons residing in the European Economic Area (EEA) and the United Kingdom (UK), in addition to the above.

We always process personal data on a lawful basis, such as your consent, legitimate business purposes, contractual necessity and legal obligation.

Personal data may be transferred to countries or jurisdictions outside the EEA or UK. Please note that such countries or jurisdictions may not have the same data protection laws as the EEA or UK, and would not afford many of the rights conferred upon you in the EEA or UK.

We will put in place reasonable safeguards to protect information that is transferred in this way.

You have the right to access your personal data, request to delete your personal data, request to limit and/or object to the processing of your personal data, and request data portability with regards to your personal data. When Nikkei receives a request based on the rights specified above, Nikkei shall respond to such requests without undue delay.

You also have the right to withdraw your consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before withdrawal of the consent. You can contact us at the secretariat by email to exercise the above rights.

You can lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority if you have a complaint regarding Nikkei’s processing of your personal data.

Nikkei will retain personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined herein, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
