The Bahrain Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL) applies to a wide range of entities and individuals involved in the processing of personal data.

It is worth noting that the PDPL applies to both private and public sectors, covering a broad spectrum of industries and activities. The law aims to establish a comprehensive framework for data protection, ensuring that personal data is handled responsibly and in accordance with the principles outlined in the PDPL.

The law extends its jurisdiction to:

Data Controllers: Any person or entity that determines the purposes and means of processing personal data falls under the scope of the PDPL. This includes businesses, organizations, government entities, and other entities that collect and process personal data.

Data Processors: Individuals or entities that process personal data on behalf of data controllers are also subject to the PDPL. This includes service providers, data processors, and third-party vendors who handle personal data on behalf of the data controller.

Data Subjects: The PDPL is designed to protect the privacy and rights of individuals whose personal data is being processed. Data subjects, which refer to individuals whose personal data is collected, stored, or processed, are afforded rights and protections under the PDPL.

Key Rights under Bahrain PDPL

Right to be Informed

The PDPL ensures that individuals have the right to be informed about the collection, processing, and storage of their personal data. Organizations must provide clear and concise information, including the purpose and legal basis for processing, any third-party recipients of the data, and the individual's rights regarding their personal data.

Right of Access

Individuals have the right to access their personal data held by organizations. They can request information about the processing of their data, obtain copies of their data, and be informed of the sources from which the data was obtained. This right allows individuals to verify the accuracy and lawfulness of the processing.

Right to Rectification

If individuals discover that their personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, they have the right to request its rectification. Organizations must promptly correct any inaccuracies and ensure that the corrected data is transmitted to any third parties that have received the inaccurate information.

Right to Erasure (Right to be Forgotten)

Under certain circumstances, individuals have the right to request the erasure of their personal data. This right enables individuals to have their data deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected, when consent is withdrawn, or when the data processing is unlawful.

Right to Restriction of Processing

Individuals have the right to restrict the processing of their personal data. This right allows individuals to limit the processing of their data while unresolved disputes or investigations are ongoing or when the accuracy of the data is contested.

Right to Data Portability

The PDPL grants individuals the right to receive their personal data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. This right enables individuals to transfer their data between different organizations, enhancing their control over their personal information.

Right to Object

Individuals have the right to object to the processing of their personal data in certain situations. Organizations must respect these objections unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the individual's interests, rights, and freedoms.

Right to Automated Decision-Making

Under the PDPL, individuals have the right not to be subject to automated decision-making processes, including profiling, that significantly affect them. Organizations must ensure that decisions with legal or similar effects are made with human intervention or provide individuals with the right to contest the decision.
