In our previous articles, we explained the conditions for processing of personal data (Please see…) and sensitive personal data (Please see…) to the Law on the Protection of Personal Data (“LPPD” or “Law”). In this article, we will explain transfer of personal data.

– Explicit consent must be given by the data subject,
– It must be mandatory for the protection of life or to prevent the physical injury of a person, in cases where that person cannot express consent or whose consent is legally invalid due to physical disability,
