Operation of the PrivacyMark ® System
JIPDEC has been operating the "PrivacyMark System" since April 1, 1998. We evaluate an entity's handling of personal information in a secure and appropriate manner, under specific evaluation criteria. Entities which meet the standardized requirements for the secure handling of personal information are granted PrivacyMark registration.
Evaluation criteria for the PrivacyMark System are based on the Personal information protection management system – Requirements (JIS Q 15001) and comply with the Japanese Personal Information Protection Act and related legal regulations.
The PrivacyMark logo is viewed by users as a trusted icon signifying that an entity manages their customers’ personal information with a high degree of competency, voluntarily following prescribed standards in compliance with legal regulations.
JIPDEC encourages businesses to develop Personal Information Protection Management Systems (PMS), and advises registered PrivacyMark entities on appropriate measures required to protect personal information, JIPDEC also actively promotes the “PrivacyMark System” by holding seminars and informing consumers about personal information protection.
