I was interviewed by Freda Liu of BFM Radio on the topic of Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (“PDPA”) on 15 January 2013.
The PDPA provides that any information that directly or indirectly relates to a data subject (i.e. individual) who is identified or identifiable from that information, is personal data. This information may take various forms, such as your name, passport number, telephone number and email address.
PDPA came into force January 1, 2013.
