Country The Philippines Nepal
System for personal information protection in the country concerned In 2012, the Philippines passed the Data Privacy Act (DPA) to protect personal data in information and communication systems in both the government and private sectors (Republic Act No. 10173). This comprehensive privacy law also established the National Privacy Commission (NPC), which has enforcement, rulemaking, advisory, and quasi-judicial powers, and was appointed to implement the provisions of the Act. The Constitution of Nepal provides for the protection of complementary information and privacy as a fundamental human right. To protect these rights, the Personal Privacy Act (Privacy Act) was passed in 2018. This privacy law differs from privacy laws in other countries in that it not only provides for the collection, storage, and use of personal information, but also stipulates that all individuals have the right to privacy regarding their residence, property, documents, data, communications, and character, and that this right shall not be violated except as provided by law .
