Summary

The Personal Data (Privacy) Amendment Ordinance 2012 will come into force in Hong Kong on 1st October 2012.

This legal update is part of our series of updates to discuss its implications for employers and other data users.

In this legal update, we look at a data user's obligations when engaging third party processors such as payroll agents, pension administrators, external IT consultants, and waste disposal/ shredding companies. We also look at ways of discharging these new obligations.

So, if you engage any of these third party data processors, it is time to reconsider your current arrangements with them to ensure you are in compliance with the Amendment Ordinance!
