Data HK – How Can We Regulate Data for the Public Good?

Data hk is an interactive platform that provides insights and tools for a better understanding of Hong Kong’s data ecosystem. It aims to raise awareness and increase demand for open data in Hong Kong, while also investigating the current state of local data policies and practices. It goes beyond traditional assessments by embracing international standards in its assessment methodology and exploring methods to answer a bigger question: how can we govern data for the public good?

Data protection in Hong Kong is governed by the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance. It establishes data subject rights and specific obligations to data controllers through six data protection principles. These principles cover the collection, processing, storage, retention and disclosure of personal data. It is a criminal offence under the PDPO to share information that is considered personal without the consent of the data subject. For example, sharing of a staff card that exhibits a person’s name, job title, photograph and HKID number could be deemed as a breach of the PDPO.

However, the PDPO is subject to various exemptions. These include the safeguarding of national security, defence and foreign affairs; crime prevention or detection; assessment or collection of taxes, duties or fees; reporting of serious crimes to law enforcement agencies; news activities; and life-threatening emergency situations. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended that businesses should take steps to ensure compliance with the PDPO before collecting and processing personal data.
