Protecting Consumers through Standardized Data Privacy

The Philippines has responded well to the introduction of e-commerce and is now in fast track development with the rapid increase in numbers of users and platforms of online retailers and ride-hailing services. There is no stopping the Philippine economy from going digital with the world. But such innovations in trade inevitably face challenges such as data privacy breaches and threats to cyber security. Thus, opinion leaders have called upon the government to put in place stronger laws and regulations to address these impediments to the growth of the country’s digital economy.

At present, the country has in place R.A. 8792 or the E-Commerce Act of 2000, the Rules on Electronic Evidence issued by the Supreme Court in 2001, R.A. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, and RA 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012. These laws are in addition to the Consumer Act passed in 1992 and the Access Devices Regulation Act in 1998 which serve as protection for online consumers.

In addition to these general laws, on 20 October 2008, the DTI, Department of Health, and Department of Agriculture enacted a joint memorandum circular on consumer protection for e-commerce transactions. (DTI-DOH-DA Joint Administrative Order (AO) No. 1 - “Rules and Regulations for Consumer Protection in a Transaction Covered by the Consumer Act of the Philippines (R.A. 7394) through Electronic Means under the E-commerce Act (R.A. 8792)” or the E-Consumer Protection Guidelines).

Part of the guidelines include mandating minimum requirements that e-commerce sites must comply with, e.g., privacy policy, information about retailer, seller, distributor, products and services, and consumer transaction, including the setting-up of a help desk to internally resolve consumer complaints.
