Personal Data Protection Law comes into force on June 1 - Privacy Community

After a two-year postponement, Thailand’s Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) will come into force on June 1st, according to Deputy Government Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek.

She said that the law will provide assurance to members of the public that their personal data will be protected and will not be used by unauthorised people.

Under the law, people or entities responsible for controlling or processing personal data must receive consent from the data’s owner for the collection, use of or disclosure of their personal data. They must also inform the data’s owner about the reason for using their personal data and to what purposes it will be put.

It also makes it illegal for video cameras to be aimed in a manner that includes public spaces like the road in front of your house. I haven’t heard how this will effect car cameras.
