We carry out various projects in an organically coordinated fashion, undertaking research and issuing policy proposals to promote lifelong sports participation while also engaging with sports-related organizations to plan and implement various events.

We place great importance on the proper management of personal information collected through the course of these activities. In addition to complying with the Japanese Act on the Protection of Personal Information, we respect the letter and spirit of all laws and regulations applicable to personal information, basing our efforts to safely and appropriately manage such information on the following policies.
