The following are JTC's basic principles regarding protection of confidentiality and copyright relating to work provided by our clients.
Protection confidentiality
1. No confidential information pertaining to the work, whether received in documentary format, by electronic file, or by oral instruction, will be divulged to any third party without the prior consent of the client.
2. No confidential information will be appropriated or used for purposes other than for the execution of the work without the prior consent of the client.
3. No confidential information will be copied or reproduced for purposes other than for the execution of the work.
4. All confidential information pertaining to the work will be returned to the client promptly on completion of the work, or will be destroyed and the client informed of this in writing.
Unless otherwise decided by express agreement between the two parties, all materials created and supplied upon commission by the client shall be the sole property of the client. Meanwhile, if a literary work (as defined by Copyright Law) should be created in the process of or as a result of the execution of the work, it shall be regarded as a literary work created in the course of professional duty and shall therefore be the property of the client.
Personal Information Protection Policy
With the growth of advanced information technology, companies and industries are now increasingly linked together by information networks. These make it easy to execute personal information searches and other functions that would once have been physically impossible.
Considering the importance of protecting personal information, the Japan Translation Center must also make every effort to ensure the safety and reliability of information systems in this advanced IT society, while fostering an awareness of protecting the personal information of our employees. We will redouble our efforts to apply this principle when developing our business, and will strive to ensure that the rights of the individual are not infringed.
Being mainly engaged in the business of translation, we now declare our policy on protecting personal information as set forth below. We do so with the aim of creating a management system to protect all personal information handled in connection with this business, as well as the personal information of our employees and all others whose personal details we handle.
1. In our business activities, we will maintain a system whereby personal information can be reliably gathered, used and provided as appropriate.
2. When gathering personal information, we will specify the purpose of use, limit our use and provision to a previously agreed range, and build a management system to ensure that such information may not be used for any other purpose. Moreover, when placing personal information held by this company in a domain outside the company, we will evaluate and manage the location in which such information is placed, and maintain a safe level of protection.
3. We will devise effective safety measures and other preventive measures to guard against the various risks that could affect personal information handled by this company (leakage, loss or damage). If such risks should occur, we will prevent recurrence by promptly taking corrective measures throughout the company. We will also respond promptly to complaints and consultation regarding personal information.
4. We will constantly monitor and observe laws and ordinances related to the handling of personal information, as well as guidelines, rules and other regulations stipulated by the government.
5. We will build a management system for the protection of personal information, make continuous improvements through internal auditing and periodic reviews, and maintain an appropriate system of management.
