– Access and Correction

It is advised that employers conducting background check in Hong Kong or against Data Subjects in Hong Kong be fully familiar with PDPO and ensure the Data Subject’s rights are being protected. Other than PDPO, labor laws and regulations related to the specific background check (e.g., criminal record check) should also be studied prior to conducting them to ensure the proper procedures protocols are in place. As always, data privacy laws and regulations like The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply for all EU Data Subject across geographic locations. Additionally, if your background check package involves data collection and transfer to other foreign countries, it is crucial that those regional data privacy laws and regulations are being considered and complied in your background check program.
