Does the difference between personal information and sensitive personal information matter?
Yes. The law treats both kinds of personal information differently. Personal information may be processed, provided that the requirements of the Data Privacy Act are complied with. On the other hand, the processing of sensitive personal information is, in general, prohibited. The Data Privacy Act provides the specific cases where processing of sensitive personal information is allowed.
