What is the situation of personal data protection?

China does not currently have a comprehensive legal framework to regulate the use and disclosure of personal data nor a national-level law. The relevant rules are scattered in diverse laws, regulations and local ordinances.  The right is upheld in principle by the Constitution and Civil Law Principles of China. Despite the fact that the term ‘privacy’ is referenced in certain PRC laws and judicial interpretations, the scope of privacy protection has not yet been expressly codified or addressed in detail by the PRC laws.
