China’s Personal Information Protection Law: What It Means to Companies

On October 21, 2020, the People’s Republic of China issued a new draft Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL). As the time allotted for the public to comment on the draft PIPL closed in November 2020 and a new draft was submitted to the legislators for review in early March 2021, we do not expect to wait very long for the draft to be passed into law. Our publication provides the highlights of the PIPL, background and key definitions. Please contact us to help answer any questions and for additional guidance.
