São Paulo Court of Appeals Launches Microsite About LGPD and Includes "Personal Data Protection" as a New Procedural Subject
São Paulo Court of Appeals (TJSP) launched, on July 24, 2020, a microsite about the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD), developed by the Information Technology Secretariat and the Presidency Secretariat.
TJSP informs on its microsite that its creation intends to give visibility and transparency to the implementation of the organizational governance model for the LGPD compliance.
On the microsite, sections that inform all the attributions of the Data Protection Management Committee were made available, as well as other internal divisions and a brief compliance schedule. In addition, TJSP informs general aspects of the LGPD, such as the rights of the data subjects, besides mentioning policies that are being revised or elaborated.
Additionally, on July 23, 2020, TJSP made available the following procedural subjects: "50297 – Personal data protection", for the Civil Law category and "50296 – Personal data protection”, for the Administrative Law category and other matters of Public Law.
TJSP reported that the inclusion of the new subjects was carried out for the purpose of measuring the number of lawsuits before and after LGPD’s effectiveness date.
Once again, through the mentioned initiatives, TJSP demonstrates its concern about the implementation and compliance with the LGPD, added to already being prepared to receive the lawsuits that will arise with the entry into force of the Law.
