Data Hk – How to Protect Your Personal Data in Hong Kong

Data hk is a topic that has been in the news recently, especially due to the fact that many of Hong Kong’s companies have been found to be in violation of data protection laws. This has led to concerns that the current legal framework is outdated and that it needs to be revised in order to protect the rights of individuals.

Until then, however, businesses should be sure they are aware of their obligations under the existing legislation. In addition, they should ensure that any data that they have collected is only used for the purposes for which it was originally collected and stored. This will prevent any unintended use or disclosure of personal data, which is known as ‘doxxing’.

Personal data is any information that relates directly or indirectly to an individual, and from which it is practicable for the person to be identified. This includes name, identifying number, address and other personal details. It also includes data about an individual’s activities, associations and movements. The PDPO defines the collection, processing, storage and use of personal data, as well as the obligations of data controllers. It has six core principles, and it applies to both private and public sector organisations.

The Government takes data security seriously. It uses SSL protocol to encrypt your personal data during network transmission, and only authorised personnel can access the personal data you provide to us via GovHK. We will never disclose your personal data to third parties without your prior consent, unless otherwise permitted or required by law.
