Asian Data Privacy Laws

Vietnam and Indonesia both have substantial data privacy laws limited to their e-commerce sub-sectors, but it is probable that in the medium term, those laws will develop into comprehensive laws for their entire private sectors. This chapter sets out the constitutional, civil law, and criminal law aspects of data privacy protection in each country, and then examines in detail the specific data privacy laws. Vietnam’s brief privacy provisions in its Law on E-Transactions of 2005 and 2006 Law on Information Technology are supplemented by detailed provisions in Decree No. 52/2013 on e-commerce of 2013. Some privacy provisions are also found in the 2010 Law on Protection of Consumers’ Rights. In 2012 Indonesia enacted a Regulation under its 2008 law on electronic transactions (previously dormant in relation to data protection), adding components of a brief but enforceable privacy code and a data breach notification requirement. A comprehensive law is under development.
