Personal Data Protection in Hong Kong

PDPO defines personal data as “data that relates to any living individual from whom it is practicable to identify him or her”. Among other things, it protects personal data against unauthorised access and processing. It also requires data users to implement security measures that are reasonably designed to prevent unauthorised or accidental access, destruction, disclosure, modification, loss or use of personal data.

Whether an entity is required to comply with PDPO depends on the nature of the business and the extent of its collection and processing of personal data. For example, a public body must comply with the PDPO when collecting and processing personal data about individuals, but it does not have to comply with the PDPO if it collects and processes the data for its own purposes.

An example of a private business that may need to comply with PDPO is a travel agency that collects the personal details of clients. The agency must make sure that the personal information it collects is accurate and up to date, and that it does not store any unnecessary information. In addition, the agency must also inform the clients of its policy on the use and disclosure of personal data.

It is important to note that the law only applies to personal data collected and processed by entities established in Hong Kong. However, if an entity outside Hong Kong processes personal data in the course of its business in Hong Kong, it must comply with the PDPO.

Those who are concerned about the protection of their personal data in Hong Kong should consider contacting a lawyer. These lawyers can help with a number of issues, including privacy concerns, data breaches, and compliance with the PDPO. They can also assist in drafting privacy policies and implementing data security measures.

Another important issue is the right to freedom of expression in Hong Kong. Under the current statutory and common laws, people are not allowed to be subjected to arbitrary interference with their privacy, family, or home, nor can they be subjected to unlawful attacks on their correspondence. However, these rights have to be balanced with the need to protect national security and public interest.

If you’re considering a move to Hong Kong, it’s crucial to understand the law and its implications for your career. The good news is that there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your move goes smoothly. By following these tips, you can rest assured that your personal data will be protected.
