Data complaints almost double in 2013
(01-23 13:42)

Personal data complaints soared to 1,800 last year -- 48 percent more than in 2012.
Many of the complaints were about the use of personal information without consent, and concerns over the reasons behind collecting data.
With the widespread use of smartphones, the Privacy Commissioner, Allan Chiang Yam-wang, also urged the public to pay close attention to the privacy policies of the mobile apps they wish to download. --RTHK
