The Personal Data Protection Act 2012 is a data protection law in Singapore. It governs the manner in which organizations collect, use, and disclose personal data of individuals by recognizing the right of individuals to protect their personal data and the need of organizations to process their customer’s data for reasonable and limited business needs. The PDPA is applicable to not just organizations in Singapore, it applies even to organizations that do not have a physical presence in Singapore, as long as these organizations collect, use, or disclose data of individuals within Singapore.
