DIFC DPL

About DIFC DPL

The DIFC Data Protection Law (DPL) is a comprehensive legal framework established by the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) to ensure the protection and privacy of personal data in today’s digital age. It sets out principles and regulations governing the processing, storage, and sharing of personal information within the DIFC jurisdiction. The DPL aims to balance enabling the seamless flow of data for business purposes and safeguarding individuals’ rights to control their personal information. It emphasizes transparency, accountability, and security in data handling, giving individuals the right to access, correct, and manage their data.

This encompasses various companies, institutions, and individuals, ranging from financial institutions, legal firms, tech companies, and healthcare providers to retailers, employers, consulting firms, real estate companies, educational institutions, and service providers. It is crucial to note that the DPL applies to both manual and automated data processing activities, spanning various industries, and it is imperative for any entity or individual operating within the DIFC to acquaint themselves with the DPL’s principles and requirements to ensure adherence and safeguard individuals’ data privacy rights.
