ADVISORY OPINIONS

An advisory opinion refers to a determination of the NPC on matters relating to data privacy or data protection, at the request of any party, or on a complaint endorsed by the Complaints and Investigations Division (CID) under Sections 4 and 10 of Rule II of NPC Circular No. 2016-04.

It shall be based only on the facts and circumstances provided by the requesting party, taking into account applicable laws and regulations. It shall serve to provide guidance to the requesting party and the general public, but shall not be used in the nature of a standing rule binding on the NPC when evaluating other cases regardless of the similarity of the facts and circumstances.

An advisory opinion shall neither adjudicate issues between parties nor impose any sanctions or award damages. It may be referred to the CID for evaluation, investigation and appropriate action, as may be necessary.
