New to the PIPL?


China’s new Personal Information Privacy Law is roughly based on the EU’s GDPR, but is much stricter in many areas, and will come into effect in November 2021 – it’s expected to drive major changes in how data is handled in China and likely beyond.

See the menus for links to various resources, news, and more.


The China PIPL will likely impact every part of your digital business, for your employees, users, customers, product delivery, payments, and much more. Any info you have on anyone is covered, as are all your third-party partners, shippers, marketing systems, and more.

In particular, you need consent for nearly everything, and individuals can revoke that consent at any time.
