The data protection law in Hong Kong is the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486) . It came into force in 1996, a year after the European Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, and it shares many of the base principles from the directive. The main objective is to protect the privacy rights of a person in relation to personal data (data subject). The Amendment Bill, relating to the regulation of the use of personal data for direct marketing purposes, was passed by the Legislative Council June 27, 2012.
