Framework for Data Protection
Here, please find the details of our framework for protecting the privacy of our customers.
For these countermeasures, we gather and use various personal data acquired from browsers and apps, and may provide these data to third parties for measures against unauthorized acts.
For this purpose, personal data is provided not only to our partners, but also to law enforcement authorities. When providing personal data to third parties for the purpose of countermeasures against unauthorized acts, we restrict the use purpose in our contracts and endeavor to conduct technical measures so that the provided personal data will not be used for purposes other than the measures against unauthorized activities.
CISO (Chief Information Security Officer)
In order to promote the security measures mentioned above, we have appointed a CISO and persons responsible for information security for each organization. We make sure to thoroughly conduct organizational measures to protect our Customer Data in all scenes.
CDO (Chief Data Officer)
From fiscal 2017, we have appointed a CDO and persons responsible for data in each service in order to promote the use of data while observing laws and regulations and giving consideration to privacy.
DPO (Data Protection Officer)
In May 2020, we have newly appointed a DPO for the purpose of promoting the appropriate use of data. To meet this purpose, the DPO gives advice on the protection of Customer Data handled by Yahoo! JAPAN from an objective and neutral standpoint and monitors usage.
We ensure strict management of data so that our customers can use our services safely and comfortably.
