Personal information protection measures required to be taken by sellers outside of Japan

Representation and warranty to protect personal information

Under the Act on the Protection of Personal Information of Japan, sellers outside of Japan who sell on Amazon.co.jp (“you” or “your”) are required to take the following measures to protect personal information obtained in the course of selling products on Amazon.co.jp. Amazon requests you to represent and warrant that you have taken the below measures in order to comply with applicable laws and regulations, and to provide a more secure shopping experience on Amazon.

Measures to be taken

You represent and warrant that you have taken, and are taking, all measures that are equivalent to, or more protective of personal information than the measures required to comply with the Amazon.co.jp Privacy Notice or, in the alternative, measures in line with the eight OECD Privacy Principles under the OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data.

For further details on the measures required to be taken by business operators handling personal information under the Act on the Protection of Personal Information of Japan, visit the Personal Information Protection Commission Japan website (English) / https://www.ppc.go.jp/index.html (Japanese).

For details on the eight OECD Privacy Principles, see the OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data provided by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

If you do not comply with the representation and warranty

You are required to suspend the use of your Amazon account if (a) the privacy policy you are displaying is not appropriate; (b) you are not taking appropriate measures to protect personal information to comply with the above representation and warranty; or (c) Amazon otherwise determines that you are not in compliance with the above representation and warranty. In any of these cases, Amazon may take measures that Amazon deems appropriate, including temporary removal of your listings, permanent removal of your selling privileges, or withholding of your funds.

Investigation

If Amazon determines that you are or may be in breach of this policy or that you are or may be inappropriately using personal information obtained through your Amazon seller account, Amazon may conduct any investigations that Amazon deems necessary, and, in each case, you are required to cooperate with the investigation.
