The protection of privacy in relation to personal data is the concern of every person in the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (the “PCPD”). We respect personal data privacy and are committed to fully implementing and complying with the data protection principles and all relevant provisions under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486) (the “Ordinance”). The Deputy Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data monitors and supervises compliance with the Ordinance within the PCPD.
When we collect personal data from individuals, we will provide them with a Personal Information Collection Statement ("PICS") on or before the collection in an appropriate format and manner (e.g. in the same paper form or web page that collects the personal data, or in a notice posted up at the reception area of PCPD for reference)

The personal data held by the PCPD includes the name, nationality, company name, job title, correspondence address, telephone number and email address, etc. of the registrants of the 39th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (“ICDPPC”).
Main Purposes of keeping Personal Data
Personal data held is kept for the purposes of processing the registration and handling relevant matters relating to the 39th ICDPPC.
