PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION ACT
Following the lead of the EU, Thailand has enacted the PDPA, or Personal Data Protection Act. After a delay of one year due to Covid-19, the law will go into effect in June of 2021.
Based on the EU’s law, companies in Thailand that collect, process, distribute, transmit or transform personal data are now subject to certain regulations governed by the PDPA.
All companies handling personal data are required to be in compliance, even if you are just collecting emails for mailing lists. And if there is a data breach and you are found to be out of compliance the penalties can be harsh.
