Among the first question people would ask about Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) 2010 is “whether or not this Act applies to me?” or, if one could answer it in affirmative, “in what why the Act implicates me?”
The PDPA 2010 provides for definition of certain entities that would be in one way or another “implicated.” They are (1) Data User; (2) Data Processore and (3) Data Subject. Thus, the PDPA 2010 operates on these classes of person. It is in this frame you can have your answer whether the Act applies to you, or, in what why it implicates you.
