Abstract

Use of data in unprecedented scale and flow of data among irrelevant users would affect the personal life of any person. Most of the countries all over the world already addressed the issue by introducing laws for personal data protection. While countries like Portugal and Chile recognised this under the Constitution as ‘Right to Personal Data Protection’, some other countries recognized it under a specific piece of legislation as ‘Personal Data Protection Act’. This article is based on an analysis of possibilities for recognising protection of personal data under the Constitutional Right perspective in Sri Lanka.
