Hong Kong residents benefit from an enhanced level of privacy protection under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (PDPO), which applies to any data processing activities taking place within Hong Kong or outside its boundaries – even if it happens outside its territory. The law contains six core data protection principles (DPPs).
Data minimisation, purpose limitation and transparency are three critical measures for protecting personal data. Data minimization requires personal information be collected solely for purposes outlined in a notice provided to data subjects; purposes limitation requires data only being used for those specified when collected; purpose limitation necessitates only being used for those specific reasons which were collected unless it can lawfully be considered different than or adverse to interests of data subject; transparency necessitates data users be completely open in communicating to their subjects how their personal information will be utilized and how this use will impact them;
Exemptions to the purpose limitation and transparency requirement include safeguarding national security, defense and international relations; crime prevention or detection; tax or duty assessment or collection activities; news activities; or life-threatening emergency situations. Nevertheless, DPPs still require data users to notify individuals and seek their consent before collecting personal data from them.
