Cookie Policy

1. Introduction

 

We are committed to transparency and the protection of privacy at Japan National Tourism Organization ("Company", "we" "us"). This document discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices at [https://www.japan.travel/en] ("our website") which is operated by us.

If you wish to change your consent settings please click here.

1.1 Cookies

"Cookies" are small capacity text files that are saved in your browser or onto your device when you visit or use websites, applications, or online media, or see online advertising. 


There are a number of different types of cookie. The type of cookie provided by us while you are visiting our website is a "first party cookie".  This is because it is provided by us and we operate the domain you are accessing. A cookie provided by a company that does not operate the domain you are accessing is called a "third party cookie". While you are visiting our website, we allow third parties to set cookies on your browser (For details, see 2.2 below.).


Each cookie lasts for a different period of time. A "session cookie" will last only while your browser is open. When you close the browser, this cookie will be automatically deleted and your computer will forget you. A "persistent cookie" will survive even after the browser has been closed. As such, this cookie will recognize your device when you browse the internet by opening up the browser again.

 

1.2 Similar identification technologies

While this document is a Cookie Policy, it is also intended to cover the use of other identification technologies that we can use or which we can be allowed to be used when providing our website. When this Cookie Policy mentions cookies, it should be understood to include such similar technologies:

“Pixel tags” (also called beacons) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a webpage, app, or advertisement which can retrieve certain information about your device and browser, including for example: device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, advertising identifiers, and other similar information, including the small text file (the cookie) that uniquely identifies the device. Pixels provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors to that website, typically with the permission of the website owner.

“Local storage” refers generally to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, ads, or third parties (such as HTML5 local storage and browser cache).

"Browser fingerprinting" is a technique to use the technical information transmitted by the devices for the optimisation of the layout of web content (e.g. system fonts, screen resolution, which plugins you have installed, and what platform your browser is running on) to uniquely identify your browser without installing a persistent identifier (e.g. cookie) on the device.

2. How do we use cookies?
