In order to comply with the existing Japanese privacy laws, the following explanation outlines how the International Bankers Association of Japan (IBA Japan) collects and uses the personal identifiable data we receive.
First and foremost, IBA Japan serves as the clearinghouse for the exchange of ideas and information for our members. By seeking to foster and promote cooperation among IBA Japan members, the sharing of information and members’ resources has always been a vital part of IBA Japan’s mandate to better represent the views of our members.
1. IBA Japan Collects the Following Information

2. How IBA Japan Uses This Personal Information

When staff of IBA members sign up for regular IBA information forums or training events (either online or by fax), their names and respective firms will be included on our attendance lists.
