Korea’s Personal Information Protection Act has replaced, in whole, the Public Agency Data Protection Act of Korea and, in part, the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information on September of 2011.
The new Korean privacy law is one of the strictest laws in the world. Please seek advice prior to engaging in any business where data of customers will be collected.
Over the next couple of weeks please check back to this blog. We will be updating the reader on:
- Basics of the new Korea data protection law;
- The Data Protection Commission;
- The Personal Information Dispute Mediation Committees;
- The Korea Communications Commission;
- The Korea Internet & Security Agency; also
- We will provide sample privacy and data collection statements.
