Argentina: AAIP publishes chapter on personal data rights

On December 5, 2023, the Argentinian data protection authority (AAIP) contributed to the publication 'Care in digital environments: Public policies for a cyber-secure society' through the chapter on 'The protection of personal data from a rights approach.'

What does the chapter address?

In particular, the AAIP stated that the chapter addresses personal data protection and shared tools to prevent digital crimes, especially as citizens increasingly engage in virtual activities due to the growth of artificial intelligence (AI). Furthermore, the chapter details the rights of data subjects to access, be informed, rectify, delete, and update their data, as well as providing a medium to which data subjects can make a complaint to the AAIP if a company or public body refuses their rights.

Moreover, the chapter also underscores the AAIP's project to update the Personal Data Protection Act, Act No. 25.326 of 2000 (the Act), which is currently under consideration in the National Congress. The proposed update to the Act includes, among other things, the incorporation of new rights such as the rights to opposition, portability, and refuse to be subjected to automated decisions.
