獲得數據主體同意的要求應包括時間要求、請求的性質以及請求中需要附加的要素。


Please be noted that obtaining consent from minors needs more requirements. Data controllers should perform suitable identification and measure the age when collecting minors’ personal data. For minors age between 10 to 20, parental consents are not required; however, for minors under 10, parental consent is required. Furthermore, if such data subject is deemed to be “incompetent” or “quasi-incompetent”, data controller should receive consent from their legal guardians. Prior to obtaining such information, consent should be obtained, and the data subject must be informed of the purpose and details of the handling of personal data, including other specific requirements. It will also require confirmation of the explicit consent of the data subject.

請注意,獲得未成年人的同意需要更多的要求。數據控制者在收集未成年人的個人資料時應進行適當的識別和年齡測量。10至20歲的未成年人無需父母同意;但是針對10 歲以下的未成年人,需要父母的同意。此外,如果數據主體被視為“無能力”或“禁治産者”,數據控制者應徵得法定監護人的同意。在獲取此類資訊之前應徵得同意,並且必須告知數據主體處理個人資料的目的和細節,包括其他具體要求,且需要確認數據主體明確同意。

Guidelines for notifying data subjects when collecting personal data must be based on core principles of fairness and limiting purposes. The language and term in the notification should be clear and easy-to-understand when notifying, addressing adequate purpose, consequences, and with relevant information about data processing prior to or when collecting data.

收集個人資料時通知數據主體的指南必須基於公平和限制目的的核心原則。通知數據主體適當的目的、後果以及在收集數據之前或收集數據時有關數據處理的相關資訊時,通知書信的語言和術語應清晰易懂。


In addition, such notification should include legal basis for such data controller replies on when processing personal data, and details on any cross-border transfer of personal data. Moreover, the privacy policy format for data notification is flexible, and can be delivered by physical mail or electronic methods. If the source of personal data is not from a data subject, data protection evaluation should be made.

此外,此通知應包括數據控制者在處理個人資料時所遵循的法律依據,以及任何個人資料跨境傳輸的詳細資訊。此外,資訊通知的隱私政策格式不受限,可以通過實體郵件或電子方式傳遞。另外,如果個人資料的來源不是來自數據主體,應進行資料保護評估。


Form of Consent Request and Privacy Teams

If a data controller is subject to other specified laws under sectoral regulators, the data controller must adopt a standard form prescribed by relevant law. If there is no prescribed standard form, the data controller can use the standard forms recommended by industry associations.
