China passes strict data privacy law protecting personal data
China’s top legislative body on Friday passed a new data privacy law that places limits on companies’ collection of personal user data, the latest action in the government’s ongoing efforts to tighten restrictions on tech giants operating in the country.
China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency reported that the Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress approved the Personal Information Protection Law, which is expected to officially go into effect on Nov. 1, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The China law, which is similar to the online privacy protection framework under Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, states that companies must have a valid interest in obtaining personal information and that the use of the data should be restricted to the “minimum scope necessary to achieve the goals of handling” data, Reuters reported.
The law also requires companies to obtain an individual user’s consent to collect personal information, and also includes guidelines for how data is allowed to be transferred and handled outside of China.
