Recently, the Hong Kong Courts and the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) have taken action under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (“PDPO”). This included an insurance agent, a marketing company and a licensed individual for improper handling of personal data, resulting in a Community Service Order, a fine, and an SFC disciplinary action.

As you can see, consumers are more aware of privacy rights, and the PDPO is being taken very seriously. We can expect to see further enforcement activity. If you have questions regarding privacy issues, contact Bruce Wilson at ACTON International,
