14 Nov Miss Earth Organizers Ordered to Provide Explanation for Privacy Measures by NPC
The National Privacy Commission (NPC) wrote a letter this week to the organizers of Miss Earth 2018, seeking an explanation on their data protection measures in light of the sexual harassment allegations surrounding the pageant.
NPC said that Carousel Productions, the organizer, is considered a personal information controller under the Data Privacy Act of 2012. However, the NPC’s database shows no record of the organizer, its Data Protection Officer (DPO), nor details of its data processing system. This could mean that the organization may have violated the Data Privacy Act by possibly being negligent in adhering to data protection standards set by the commission.
