About

“Privacy Law in Greater China” is a database providing online access to the laws, regulations and other important legal documents that bear on privacy and personal data/personal information in the jurisdictions of mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. The four regions, with close cultural ties, face  similar impacts of the modern economy as well as the information society, in particular the advancing information and communication technologies (ICT). This database aims to provide research support for academics, policy makers, legal practitioners and people who have interest in privacy protection and comparative studies. It is updated regularly to incorporate recent statutory sources in the four regions.

The database is a  joint collaboration between the Law & Technology Centre of The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Privacy International (UK). Project manager of this database is Dr. Clement Yongxi Chen, Faculty of Law, HKU. This work was carried out with the aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada.
