Hong Kong Updates- Data Privacy

Data Privacy
The Privacy Commissioner has (in December 2014) issued guidelines on the cross border transfer (i.e. out of Hong Kong) of personal data, in anticipation of the enactment of s.33 of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance. The section has been on the statute books since 1996. Very broadly, in order not to commit an offence under s.33, the data user will have to be transferring the data to a country on a “white list”, have reasonable grounds to believe that the data will be protected by similar laws to Hong Kong’s, have the subject’s consent, or be handling data which are otherwise exempt.
