Businesses owners must have in place policies and procedures that protect the privacy rights of the individuals with whom they deal, as well as safeguarding any other personal information that they obtain.
KCL Law has significant expertise advising clients in relation to their privacy law obligations and drafting their privacy policies.
Apart from privacy policies, businesses must adopt certain practices and measures to ensure that they comply. Fines of up to $1.7 million may be imposed for breaches by companies. Individuals may be fined up to $340,000 for a breach.
