As part of the Services, NHK shall provide on NHK Websites and NHK Apps a service, within Japan entirely funded by NHK receiving fees, for streaming broadcast programs being aired by NHK (hereinafter referred to as "Simultaneous Continuous Online Streaming"), along with a program catch-up service, also funded entirely by NHK receiving fees, streaming broadcast programs previously aired by NHK (hereinafter referred to as the "Program Catch-up Service"), which together shall be referred to as "NHK Plus".

NHK may handle User Information based on the following legal grounds:
1) To perform users' instructions or fulfil the obligations under other contracts with users;
2) Users' consent expressly given to NHK to handle User Information in such manner. Each user may withdraw the consent to this handling at any time; however, this will not affect the lawfulness of any handling activity carried out by NHK before such withdrawal of the consent.
3) To comply with legal and regulatory obligations; and
4) Legitimate interests or those of any third-party recipients of User Information, provided that such interests are not overridden by users' interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
