  • Patent number: 8254543
    Abstract: A sensor event controller dynamically switches a destination to which sensor event data are to be notified, according to a service application program (AP) that a user is using, and notifies sensor event data in compliance with an interface of the service AP as the notification destination. An information collection part stores information for identification of a service AP used on a browser and header information transmitted/received between the browser and the service AP in a collected data storage part. Upon receiving sensor event data, a data-notified application determination part decides that the service AP used on the browser is a service AP as the notification destination, by referring to the collected data storage part.

  • Patent number: 8191151
    Abstract: A privacy protection device acquires provider location information and browser location information indicating the current location of a browser terminal used by a browser who intends to browse the content. The privacy protection device stores determination data for determining whether to mask privacy information included in the content. The privacy protection device determines whether to mask the privacy information by comparing the distance, which is calculated based on the current location of the provider terminal indicated by the provider location information and the current location of the browser terminal indicated by the browser location information, to the determination data stored in the determination data storage part. Finally, the privacy protection device edits the privacy information included in the content so that the privacy information is concealed from the browser when the privacy masking determination part determines to mask the privacy information.

  • Publication number: 20090063848
    Abstract: A product data category for sale among product data to be stored in a memory unit of a wireless tag is sent from a first client to a web server. The web server sends the product data category to a second client. The second client sends purchase data for the product data category to the web server. The web server sends an encryption key to the first client. The first client encrypts the product data with the encryption key and writes the encrypted product data in the memory unit of the wireless tag via a reader/writer. The web server sends a decryption key to the second client. On receiving the decryption key, the second client reads the encrypted product data in the wireless tag via a reader/writer to decrypt the encrypted product data with the decryption key.

  • Publication number: 20080263143
    Abstract: Upon receiving a request from a personal computer for obtaining data of an advertisement image, an advertisement server reads data of an advertisement image stored in a storage. A superimposition image DB stores data of superimposition images to be superimposed on part of advertisement images and data of superimposition areas in the advertisement images where the superimposition images are superimposed. A superimposition image is superimposed on a superimposition area in the advertisement image. Data of the advertisement image superimposed with the superimposition image is transmitted to the personal computer. The personal computer receives position data input as a result of operation performed on the advertisement image superimposed with the superimposition image and transmits the position data to the advertisement server. The advertisement server receives the position data and determines whether the position data exists within the superimposition area whose data is stored in the superimposition image DB.
