Suruga Bank’s policy hurts privacy.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22, 2009 by vaibs

Suruga Bank’s arbitrary restriction policy has a devastating impact on the already suffering minorities and leads to widespread discrimination in Japan. The illegal practice, which contained baseless limits on minorities, improperly imposed unnecessary ID and forced minorities to show “an alien card” for no reason. Suruga Bank refused to disclose the disputed policy in October 2008, after VAIBS filed a lawsuit against Suruga Bank in Tokyo District Court. The lawsuit charged that the policy’s enforcement would put minorities at risk of losing bank accounts because the policy would cause discrimination against minorities. Suruga Bank contended Personal Information Protection Act article 18 does not apply to this case. But Suruga Bank’s assertion was wrong.

Suruga Bank has been spying minorities.

Suruga Bank should disclose any policies and procedures pertaining to how the illegal bank broke privacy rights when it collected, stored and disseminated private information of minorities. According to Personal Information Protection Act and the bank laws, banks are not allowed to misuse sensitive information. The court paper shows that Suruga Bank misled minorites about the aim of personal information gathering. VAIBS requested the discriminatory bank to release any procedures and policies pertaining to the acquisition, processing, analysis, retention, storage or dissemination of minorities personal information. But Suruga Bank refused to submit them to the court.
