St. Kitts and Nevis’ legislators pass Data Protection Bill

Data Protection Bill 2018 passed May 4 to promote the protection of personal data processed by public and private bodies.

Bill is largely derived from an Organization of Eastern Caribbean States model and creates binding obligations with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information, as well as setting access rights. Data Protection Bill seeks to ensure that personal information in the custody or control of an organization, both governmental and private, shall not be disclosed, processed or used other than the purpose for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual and where exemptions are clearly defined.
