Effective November 1, 2021, the PIPL is China’s comprehensive law on data privacy and protection.  It will impact higher education institutions that collect data, either:

  • Directly or through third parties;

  • ​From students or prospective students; or

  • During the delivery of educational programming with Chinese partners, both domestically and abroad.

​The PIPL outlined the legal bases for collecting personal information, and clarified an individual’s rights over personal information along with the obligations of personal information processors. Importantly, the PIPL introduced requirements on the cross-border transfer of personal information. Similar to EU’s GDPR, it has extraterritorial effect and also carries significant administrative fines and penalties on institutions as well as responsible personnel who fail to comply.

XL Law & Consulting offers annual subscriptions which provide relevant and continuously updated compliance and regulatory information for higher education institutions.
