Question:
With the consent of the data subject, can the Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau (the Works Bureau) disclose the data of registered urban engineers, architects and construction companies on its website for public review? Such data may include the personal or business names, registration date and other details. Must the data subject be informed of such processing in advance? Must the Office for Personal Data Protection be notified of the processing?

Answer:
To disclose technicians’ or construction companies’ names, registration time and other details on a website, including trade data, given that it is for public review, is for defined and appropriate purposes. The Office holds that such data may be treated as registered data that is open to public review. Article 10 of the Personal Data Protection Act provides that the data subject has the right to information. Therefore, when collecting the data, the Works Bureau should explain the purposes of processing the data and supply other relevant information to the data subject. Article 21 of the Act stipulates that the Office must be notified where any automatic data processing is undertaken.
