FAQs

Are you subject to Brazil’s data privacy laws and if so, what do you need to look out for? We answer some basic questions below. 

The LGPD (“Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados,” or “General Data Protection Law”) is a privacy law passed by the Brazilian legislature in 2018 and went into effect in 2021. It establishes certain data privacy rights to citizens and mandates companies to increase transparency and safeguards. Brazil’s LGPD takes heavy inspiration from the EU’s General data protection regulation (GDPR) and shares many of its provisions, such as many of the legal bases for data processing activities and the appointment of a data protection officer (DPO) for data controllers. 

The LGPD requires all data processors to be transparent about their use of personal data, collect valid consent and offer covered natural persons free access to their data. Companies must document each purpose and make it available to consumers in an updated public privacy policy. The law establishes fundamental rights for Brazilians and companies must fulfill and process personal data requests in a reasonable time. It also covers data security and companies must inform data subjects if they were exposed to a data breach.

The LGPD covers any personal data processing of Brazilians or persons located in Brazil. This means that even if a company is based outside of the country, they are still subject to the law. Unlike other privacy laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and California Privacy Act (CPRA), there is no size threshold so even small businesses are subject. 

We help you meet the LGPD’s requirements by operationalizing them in a single platform via our Privacy and Data Governance Cloud. Minimize the risk of non-compliance with automated data mapping and discovery, risk assessments, incident tracking, and managing data subjects' rights and consent. We also provide access to the world’s largest regulatory database so you can stay up to date with the law’s amendments and rule changes.
