4. Principles applicable when collecting and processing personal data
The PDPA has several basic principles which every data controller and data processor must comply with in order to be in accordance with this legislation. In the event of doubt regarding the application of these principles in a concrete case, you can always contact the PDPA contact point for further explanations.

a. Lawfulness
The PDPA provides that personal data must be processed lawfully and fairly with respect to the data subject.

In order to process personal data lawfully, a legal basis must exist. In principle, the Company processes personal data only when:

● The processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Company as a controller or the interests of a third party other than the data controller, except where the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject regarding the protection of his or her personal data override these interests.

Other than where justified by the legitimate interests above, the Company will usually process personal data where necessary for:

● The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

● The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation which is imposed upon the organization.

● The processing is necessary for preventing or suppressing a danger to a person’s life, body, or health.

● The processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Company.

● The processing is necessary for the achievement of the purpose relating to the preparation of the historical documents or the archives for the public interest, or for the purpose relating to research or statistics, in which the suitable measures to safeguard the data subject rights and freedoms are put in place.

The data subject has given his or her consent. The Company shall inform the person concerned before or at the time the data is collected about the purpose for which consent is required, which personal data will be collected for the processing, the right to revoke consent, the possible consequences for the data subject in the context of automated individual decision-making and profiling, and transfer to third countries.

If you have given your consent for a specific processing purpose to the company in order to process your data for that purpose, you can withdraw this consent at any time. the company will then stop any further processing of your data for which you gave consent and will inform you of the possible consequences of your withdrawal of consent. If the company processes your personal data for other purposes and in order to do so it refers to other legal bases, it will still be able to process your personal data.

The company ensures that it always refers to at least one of the above-mentioned legal bases when it processes personal data. If you have questions about the applicable legal basis that the company is referring to, you can always contact the PDPA contact point.

Some categories of personal data are of a sensitive nature and data protection legislation also has a stricter regime for these special categories of personal data (also known as “sensitive personal data”). These are data concerning racial, ethnic origin, political opinions, cult, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual behavior, criminal records, health data, disability, trade union information, genetic data, biometric data, or any data which may affect the data subject in the same manner.

In principle, the processing of these sensitive personal data is forbidden unless the Company can refer to one of the exceptions. In a limited number of cases, should the company process sensitive personal data, the data subject will be informed in advance. For more information about the company's handling of sensitive personal data, please contact the PDPA contact point.

b. Fairness

The data controller ensures that personal data shall be processed:

● For specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and may not be processed further in a way incompatible with the initial purposes for which the data were collected.

● This processing shall be limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which the data were collected. If possible, the data controller will anonymize the data or use pseudonyms in order to limit the impact for the data subject as much as possible. This means that the name or identifier will be replaced so that it is difficult or even impossible to identify an individual.

● Limited in time and only as necessary for the specific purpose.

● Accurately, and the data shall be updated where necessary. The data controller shall take all reasonable measures to erase or update the personal data, taking into account the purposes for which they are processed.

c. Transparency (personal data collected and purposes for processing)

In principle, the company processes personal data it has received directly from the data subject or indirectly and shall inform him/her about the following matters:

● Information, address, contact channel, details of the controller;

● The purpose of the processing and its legal basis;

● If the personal data processing is supported by a legitimate interest, an explanation of this interest;

● The (categories of) receivers of the personal data;

● The transfer of personal data to third countries (outside Thailand) or international organizations (+ on what basis);

● The time limit for the storage of personal data or the criteria used to determine the time limit;

● The rights of the data subject (including the right to revoke consent);

● The right to lodge a complaint with the related supervisory authority;

● Explanation when the transmission of personal data is a contractual or legal obligation;

● If the Company receives personal data from a third party, it shall clearly inform the data subject about the categories of personal data which it received from this third party and will also make this third party known to the data subject.

When the data subject already has all the information, the company will not inform the data subject unnecessarily about the processing of his/her personal data.

If the company processes personal data for other purposes that are incompatible with the purposes for which they were initially collected (the new purpose is not described in the initial information note and the data subject cannot guess that his or her personal data will also be processed for this new purpose), the Company will take all the necessary measures to process such data lawfully and will inform the person concerned.
