Singapore likely to have personal data protection law in two years
font size    

It is likely that Singapore will have a personal data protection law in about two years as online transactions are increasing here, Channel NewsAsia report said on Sunday.

The law is expected to prevent private companies from collecting and disseminating a person's particulars freely without his or her knowledge or permission.

Under the proposed law, anyone who finds that his or her personal information is being used by a company for direct marketing would have a right to ask the company to stop doing it.

A committee is scheduled to submit its report on the law to the government next month, according to the report.

Currently, Singapore only has laws which require government agencies like the Inland Revenue Authority to protect people's personal information.
