Not just Japan.
Personal story; I needed to go see a doctor here in California for a routine check up. Last three years of history is actually in New Zealand.
Please have your doctors in New Zealand fax all your records to this number.
Fax? Much easier to send in email.
According to the assistant - no that isnt acceptable, because email is ‘known to not be secure’.
I don’t disagree - but asked her how secure she felt Faxing was?
