Brazil’s Congress on Tuesday night completed action on a bill to protect individual data collected on the Internet and other services. The Senate passed the same text as previously approved by the Chamber of Deputies. The bill now goes to President Michel Temer, who is expected to sign it. The legislation creates regulatory benchmarks which must be followed by both the government and private companies in obtaining and using personal data. The legislation is similar to that which has been adopted in many other countries and is designed to protect individual privacy.
