ACCJ Viewpoint: GOJ Policy Review on the Protection and Utilization of Personal Data

The American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) released their viewpoint on the GOJ Policy Review on the Protection and Utilization of Personal Data on July 18, 2014. The viewpoint examines the promotion of utilization of personal data for commercial purposes while adopting a dynamic approach to protection with the participation of the multistakeholder community.

Additionally, the viewpoint  calls for clarification of data disclosure procedures and the minimization of restrictions on cross-border data flows. Ensuring that due process is followed and seeking constructive solutions to data breaches will be facilitated by avoiding conflicting legal frameworks and the direct facilitation of obtaining consumer consent for the repurpose of data usage.
