Information about Aozora

Privacy policy


Privacy policy

Aozora is deeply concerned about privacy. Especially, we want to explain the reasons for us to ask about personal information.
At any moment you can refuse to share this information, and in accordance with legal requirements, you have right to information, access and correction of your personal data, as described in the Terms of Service.
In a process of reciprocity, some services may be then disabled, especially if they suggest access to similar information, or invasion of privacy of other users.

Name of the register

Registre des utilisateur des services d'Aozora.

Use of personal details (purpose of register)

Personal details are collected to make communication and use of service possible. Details can be used for communication between service providers and users and also for direct communication between users. Some personal details are visible on the profile page of the user, but those details are voluntary (except name).

The handling of personal details is not outsourced, but the register data is stored on a server that is rented from a third party company.

Information content of the register

The following information may be stored in the register:

  • Personal details: Name, email address, phone number, street address
  • Account details: username, password (stored in encrypted format)
  • The description text that the user may write about him/herself
  • The offers and requests the user has posted to the service
  • The given and received feedback and badges
  • Statistical data about service usage, e.g. number times the user has logged in

Regular sources of information

Personal details are given by the user on registration to the service or when using it later.

Accessing Personal Information

Aozora will allow you, at any time, to access, edit, update and/or delete the personal information that we hold about you, unless:

  • we are legally permitted or required to deny you access to, and/or to retain, the information; or
  • you make request(s) that are unreasonably repetitive, require Aozora to make a disproportionate technical effort (for example, to develop an entirely new system), risk the privacy of others, or would be highly impractical to comply with.

If you wish to access the personal information Aozora holds about you, you should contact us here. If you wish to delete your account, you should go to your settings page and click on "Permanently delete my account" in Account section.

We need to prevent information in our systems from being accidentally or maliciously destroyed. This means that, when you delete information from our services, residual copies of that information on our active servers, as well as any corresponding information on our back-up systems, may not be immediately deleted.

Regular handovers of the information

The information may be handed over for research purposes as described in the Terms of Service that the user accepts before starting to use the service. The researchers may not publish any research results so that identifying information would be revealed or that any specific user could be detected.

Information considering users of a single Aozora community may be handed over to the client who has founded that community or to the community administrators appointed by that client.

Transfers of the information outside the EU and the European Economic Area

Information may be stored to a server that may be located inside or outside of the EU and the European Economic Area

Register protection principles

The information is stored on computers. The access to the information is restricted with passwords and physical access to the computers is restricted by the server hosting company.
