This report sheds light on Brazilian data law within the framework of a comparative study from legal studies, cultural studies and business informatics, which aims to investigate the extent to which decisions to disclose personal date is based on a cultural imprint as well as on the existing legal framework. To establish this, the country report sets a baseline. In addition to a brief overview of the Brazilian legal framework, it deals decisively and in depth with issues relating to data law. The focus is on regulatory aspects relating to the collection, processing and dissemination of personal data. Central feature is the “Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados” (LGPD), which covers the processing of personal data and establishes fundamental privacy rights for data subjects, including the right to be informed by data controllers about data processing. Questions asked include: Which legal sources regulate Brazilian data law? What is personal data in Brazilian data law? How may this data be collected, processed and enforced?
