Following a Cabinet meeting chaired by the Prime Minister and the Minister of the Interior on 6 January 2016, a press release stated that the Cabinet has given its approval to a draft law on the protection of privacy of personal data (the Draft Law). The Draft Law will now be referred to the Advisory Council for further consideration.
The Draft Law will impose obligations on data controllers and processors when carrying out electronic and/or "traditional" processing of personal data. Provisions will also deal with a requirement for consent in order to send electronic direct marketing. Exemptions will apply for the private processing of personal data and for official statistical processing under Law No. (2) of 2011 on Official Statistics.
