Bermuda adopts Informational Privacy Legislation


The Personal Information Protection Act 2016 (PIPA) which received Royal Assent on July 27, 2016, will provide Bermuda’s residents with a general right to privacy for personal information, which is based on a common set of international privacy principles. The PIPA applies to all organisations, including businesses and the Government, that use personal information in Bermuda.

The Data Protection regulators of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man worked closely with the Bermuda authorities during the implementation process, providing advice and support throughout.
