Data Protection Law Goes Into Force
The Colombian Data Protection went into effect on 18 April 2013. The Law introduces a comprehensive privacy regime in Colombia for the first time and regulates, among other things, notice and consent requirements, cross-border data transfers, and the processing of children's data. The Law also contains data subject rights and registration requirements. Under the law, the Superintendence of Industry and Commerce will have the power to sanction violations of the provisions.
