Question:
What protection does a person have if an institution abuses his or her personal data? For example, an employer transfers an employee’s personal data to a third party.

Answer:
Articles 10 to 12 of the Personal Data Protection Act provides for three rights of the data subject. They include the right of information (the right to know at the time of data collection about the identity of the data controller or its representative, the purposes and other related matters), the right of access (the right to obtain information from the data controller about the purposes of data processing, the type of data processed, the type of data recipient, and the right to correct, delete or have the data blocked), and the right to object. Apart from the explicit provisions of these rights, the Act also stipulates the administrative or criminal penalties against persons or institutions that breach the related provisions.
