Punishment for Violation Of Confidentiality Obligation in Japan

People working in specific professions must maintain secrecy, including public employees, attorneys, doctors, and dentists.

Additionally, violators may be punished under the Unfair Competition Prevention Act for disclosing information that qualifies as a “trade secret” or “data for limited provision.”

Except in specific circumstances, it is forbidden for someone who fits the criteria of a “Personal Information Handling Company” to disclose personal information to other parties.

The phrases “trade secret” and “data for limited provision” are defined under the Unfair Competition Prevention Act.

Technical or business information kept confidential and not generally known but valuable for business operations, such as manufacturing or marketing techniques, is referred to as a “trade secret.”
