Singapore has enacted the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) on 15 October 2012 and it is effective 2 July 2014. PDPA is a data protection law which governs the collection, use, disclosure and care of personal data. It recognises both the rights of individuals to protect their personal data, including rights of access and correction, and the need for organisations to collect, use or disclose personal data for legitimate and reasonable purposes. The law strives to safeguard consumers' personal data against misuse.
The PDPA includes the Do Not Call (DNC) Registry in which individuals are given the choice to opt out of receiving marketing phone calls, mobile text messages such as SMS or MMS and faxes from organisations.
