Every time you fill an online form, you are putting your personal information in the public domain. This information usually includes your photograph, bank details, identification number, location, contact details, occupation, and telephone number. Your data is then processed by a Data Controller, which in some cases could be a public institution. There are 6 lawful bases for processing Personal Data as provided by the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation. Today on Privacy Notes, we will be looking at the regulatory guidelines for obtaining and protecting your personal information.
