1. Dealing with personal data
The website at www.indiavisajapan.com is an offer of service from IVS Global Japan. On its website pages, IVS Global Japan
informs customers and interested parties about the requirements for applying for
a visa for India.
The protection of the Applicant’s personal data when it is collected, processed
and used during their visit to the website pages of IVS Global Japan is an important priority for us. The below section details what information
IVS Global Japan collects during the Applicant or concerned
party’s visit to the website, and how that information is further used by IVS Global Japan:
2. Data processing in connection with queries
The data such as emails address, name and other details provided by the Applicant/concerned
party has given will be saved in a file or in an email program and only used for
the correspondence concerning the requested information.
3. Data processing in connection with visa applications
In accordance with the requirements specified by the Indian Embassy in Tokyo, applying
for a visa requires the mandatory filing of an online application through the website
https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/, with subsequent submission of the hard copy
application documents. In the framework of the visa application process, therefore,
the Applicant will be forwarded by IVS Global Japan to the
Indian government's above-mentioned online application website.
Please note that the data entered and saved there is processed by the Indian government
for the granting of the visa, and that IVS Global Japan has
no influence on the data processing by the Indian government and is not responsible
for that data processing by the Indian government.
Insofar as in the framework of the visa application IVS Global Japan collects, saves or uses personal data itself, this is only done insofar
as is necessary for the processing of the visa application and for the rendering
of our other services and the performance of contractual obligations entered into
with the Embassy/Consulate. Accordingly, data is only passed on to third parties
insofar as IVS Global Japan's service partners (e.g. SMS
provider and courier services) or to the Indian Embassy or respective Consulate,
if it requires the data to process the application. In such cases, however, the
scope of the data transmitted is limited to the necessary minimum; in the case of
the Indian Embassy or Consulate, therefore, in particular to the data already asked
for on its website (https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/) as well as the documents
and papers (passports, etc.) additionally made available by the Applicant.
Otherwise, passing the Applicant’s personal data on to third parties, selling it
to third parties or transmitting it to third parties in another way is excluded,
unless IVS Global Japan is obliged by law or by a court decision
to pass the data on, or if passing the data on is necessary for the pursuit of claims
and criminal-law prosecution in the event of attacks on IVS Global Japan's IT infrastructure.

5. Right to information, revocation and deletion
The Applicant has the right to revoke consent to usage of his/her personal data at
any time with effect for future applications. Deletion of the personal data takes
place when the Applicant declares to IVS Global Japan
that he/she has revoked their consent to storage, when knowledge of that data is
no longer required for fulfillment of the purpose pursued with the storage, or if
storage of the data is impermissible for other legal reasons. Upon written
request, IVS Global Japan would be pleased to inform
the Applicant what data we have saved about the Applicant (e.g. name, address,
telephone number). For this purpose, please use the IVS Global Japan contact data shown on the imprint page or contact us page.
IVS Global Japan endeavours to take all of the
necessary technical and organisational security measures to save the Applicant’s personal data in such a way that it is not accessible to third parties or the public.
