        1. Data falling under (1) and (2) below may be used in accordance with the copyright license Attribution 4.0 International  
              of the Creative Commons License (hereafter referred to as the CC License). For details ,see

                  (1) (a) All metadata in the data catalog; (b) the resources for which metadata is disclosed in the data catalog
             (hereafter referred to as "actual data disclosed in the catalog") and for which "CC-BY" is displayed in the license column
             and (c) article contents (content disclosed in parts of this website other than the data catalog)
                  (2) Data (excluding logos, symbols, and so forth) for which the publisher owns the copyright (In the case of
             metadata in the data catalog and the actual data disclosed in the catalog, the publisher refers to the party shown in the
             publisher column for the metadata of the data-set of the relevant data. In the case of article contents, the publisher
             refers to the state of publication. The same applies hereinafter.)
             Note, however, that numerical data and data in simple tables, graphs, and so forth are not subject to copyright.
             Accordingly, even if "CC-BY" is displayed in the license column for the applicable resource, the CC License does not
             apply to such data, and said data may be used freely.

        2. In some cases, a third party other than the publisher (hereafter referred to as a "third party") owns the copyright or
            other rights for actual data disclosed in the catalog or for article contents. In such cases where a third party holds the
            copyright or other rights (such as portrait rights or the right of publicity for photographs), the user is responsible for
            obtaining permission to use such data or article contents from said third party. Note that, in general, there is no
            specification or indication whether any given portion of the actual data disclosed in the catalog or article contents is
            subject to rights held by a third party. (In the case of actual data disclosed in the catalog that is provided by a national
            ministry or agency, see the website of the applicable ministry or agency shown in the publisher column. These websites
            provide examples of how to display or indicate third-party ownership of such rights.)

        3. Users must observe the relevant laws and ordinances when using the content of this website. (For laws that require
            particular attention when using actual data disclosed in the catalog that is provided by a national ministry or agency,
            see the website of the applicable ministry or agency shown in the publisher column.)

        4. Even if you are using data that is not subject to the CC License, such as numerical data or data in simple tables, graphs,
            and so forth, we ask that you indicate the source of such data. (For details about data that is not subject to the CC
            License, see Article 2, Item 1.) Indicate the source as follows: For metadata in the data catalog or article contents,
            indicate the name of the data catalog site (DATA.GO.JP) as well as the URL of the relevant page (if it is difficult to
            indicate the specific page, indicate the home page). For actual data disclosed in the catalog, indicate the following items
            for the data-set or resource containing the actual data disclosed in the catalog: (a) the name of the organization shown
            in the Publisher column for the metadata of the dataset, (b) the name of the resource, and (c) the URL of the resource.

  4. Article 4 (Resources to which a third party owns the copyright in full)
       In the case of a third party owning the copyright to everything for an item of Actual data disclosed in the catalog, with the exception of quotations permitted under the Copyright Act, the user of such data must, upon his or her own responsibility, obtain permission to use such data from any relevant third parties. In the case of a third party clearly owning the copyright to everything for an item of Actual data disclosed in the catalog, the license column will be blank and the column for the copyright of the metadata of the resource will indicate that the data is a work of a third party.
  5. Article 5 (Logos, symbols, etc.)
       Regarding independent use of marks that are used in this website or by a ministry or agency, and which represent organizations or businesses such as logos, symbols, etc., the user must consult with the responsible person of the relevant organization or business to check the conditions of use.

The publisher bears no liability for any acts done by users using the content disclosed on this website (including the use of information edited, processed, etc. based on said content). Even if the publisher displays or indicates third-party ownership of rights in said relevant content, such a display or indication is not comprehensive.
  7. Article 7 (Relation to Terms of Use of other websites)
       In the case that Actual data disclosed in the catalog is also disclosed on other governmental websites, and if the Terms of Use of such other websites (referring to the Terms of Use set forth on such respective websites rather than the Terms of Use stipulated by laws) differ from those of these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use will prevail.
  8. Article 8 (Changes to these Terms of Use)
       These Terms of Use might be subject to changes without prior notice. However, in the case that such changes will have a major impact on the use of the relevant content, we will provide prior notification of the substance of such changes.
