Privacy Policy of the Society of Rheology, Japan

 Following the Personal Data Protection Act in Japan (enforced as of April 2005), the Society of Rheology, Japan (SRJ) has settled the following Privacy Policy for its members under recognition of the importance of personal data of the members.

 

1. Collection of the personal data of the members.
   SRJ collects the personal data of its members within the necessity for performing its activity as a scientific society. This collection is made, in principle, with a clear indication of the purpose of the collection/usage of the data and with an approval of individual members.

2. Usage and proffer of the personal data of the members.
   SRJ utilizes the personal data of its members only for performing its activity as a scientific society. SRJ never indicates/proffers the data to a third person/party unless individual members agree with it, except under unavoidable situations: SRJ may indicate/proffer the data to a third person/party when (1) SRJ is forced by the Japanese law/act, (2) individual members give an approval for it, and/or (3) a part of the data is consigned to an agent who is officially entrusted by SRJ with a part of the action of SRJ (such as shipment of the SRJ journal).

3. Care for the personal data of the members.
   SRJ properly takes charge of the personal data of the members to protect the data from illegal/undesired actions such as illegal access, theft, loss, destruction, falsifying change, and omission. If these illegal actions occur (with a rare possibility, though), SRJ does its best to recover the original data and makes a counterplot for preventing recurrence of the illegal actions. Furthermore, SRJ strictly supervises an agent who is officially entrusted by SRJ with a part of the action of SRJ.
 The personal data of the members that have been published by the members themselves are out of the care by SRJ. However, even for such published data, SRJ never makes indication/proffer to a third person/party except for the cases specified in the terms (1)-(3) in section 2 of this policy.

4. Indication and correction of the personal data of the members.
   SRJ indicates, in principle, the personal data of a member without any delay when the member requests the indication of his/her data. SRJ responds to a member without any delay when the member offers a correction of his/her data and/or forbids the usage of the data.

5. Indication and correction of the personal data of the members.
   SRJ may revise this policy according to a change in the Japanese law/act and/or other official changes in Japan. This revision is published, without any delay, in the SRJ home page in the electronic web.

This policy is enforced as of August 31, 2006.
Questions for this policy are to be sent to the SRJ office
