The information economy has brought with it the need to regulate the countless existing forms of data collection. Currently, complying with data protection standards and immersion in privacy protection culture is of vital importance to companies, and has proven to offer an important competitive advantage.
In Brazil, the General Law for Personal Data Protection (LGPD), in force since September 18, 2020, is intended to govern the treatment of personal data and seeks to “protect the fundamental rights of liberty, privacy and the free development of the personality of a natural person”.
According to the LGPD, personal data is the information that identifies, or may identify, a person (e.g. name, tax ID number (CPF), federal ID number (RG), address, image, etc.). Data handling is defined as the use of personal data, such as storage, sharing, collection and processing. Data considered sensitive such as race, religion, philosophy, political and sex life, are treated with even greater restrictions.
