Our data protection and privacy regulations coverage relates to the protection of people with regard to the processing of personal data and rules relating to the free movement of this data.
Recent years have witnessed an unparalleled growth in data protection legislation, primarily as a knock-on effect from the sharp surge in mobile and consumer technologies. In particular, the lawful processing of personal data is quickly
becoming a priority for so-called “smart appliances”.
Networked devices capable of exchanging data, must be used in such a way as to protect users from the risk of privacy breaches.
We cover the principal national data protection and privacy laws and regulations in C2P, both proposed and enacted, focusing on:
- Collection, storage and use of data
- Fair and lawful data processing
- Individual’s rights
- Sharing of data
- Data transfer to other countries
- Data classification and quality of data security measures
- Measures to ensure privacy in relation to connected products
In particular, the lawful processing of personal data is quickly becoming a priority for so-called “smart appliances”. Networked devices, capable of exchanging data, must be used in such a way as to protect users from the risk of privacy breaches. Accordingly, this content area also covers data protection implications for connected products.
Also, please note that we do not cover the following types of personal information: health information, financial/credit information, criminal records or data held by public entities. Our coverage also does not extend to regulations that apply to electronic communications service providers only (e.g. sources regarding data retention by communications providers). Sources on the use of biometric data by companies and related requirements fall under our coverage, whereas we do not cover sources on biometric data that establish rules only for government entities, financial institutions and/or healthcare institutions.
While we do not cover sources that relate to social media only, if sources are regarding “online privacy” in general, we cover them. We also cover children’s online privacy (obtaining parental consent, giving easily understandable privacy notices, etc.), however, we do not cover sources that relate to protecting children from harmful content such as nudity or sexual content.
