Hong Kong Updates- Data Privacy

Following is the Privacy Commission's attack on the well-known Hong Kong "Webb-Site" blog, which acts as a sort of watchdog on Hong Kong companies, for inclusion of Hong Kong ID ("HKID") numbers in it's publicly available database, the Privacy Commissioner has (December 6th) issued an enforcement notice against a major chain of gyms for "unnecessary" collection and retention of HKID copies and data of birth information. The chain has indicated that it will appeal, but the trend is a worrying one, give that, after 15 years in existence, the Privacy Commissioner seems suddenly to be taking more extreme positions in this area.
