The Association collects the following Personal Information through documents, electronic media, or websites.
The Personal Information obtained from users at events that the Association operates or is entrusted to operate, will be used for the following purposes under the terms and conditions:
*The Association gathers personal information in order to improve its services regarding the operation, registering visitors prior to and during exhibitions, and accepting reservations to attend exhibitions, conferences and other special programs. The Association also collects personal information for use in user questionnaires and for responding to requests for reference materials.

The Association uses personal information only for these purposes.
No personal information collected by the Association will be provided to unrelated third parties except the cases listed below.
However, visitors to exhibitions organized by the Association are issued with personalized barcodes.
These barcodes are read upon entering the exhibition and Conference programs, and at the booths of exhibiting companies and organizations (exhibitors). As a result, information that might be considered personal in nature is shared between the Association and the exhibitors.

However, the Association shall be exempt from this stipulation if its legal rights are infringed upon or interfered with by a user(s), or the potential of such infringement or interference is suspected.
