Data Privacy Notice and Consent Form for Candidates

Article III of the 1987 Constitution protects the right of privacy. Section 2 states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures of whatever nature and for any purpose shall be inviolable, and no search warrant or warrant of arrest shall issue except upon probable cause to be determined personally by the judge after examination under oath or affirmation of the complainant and the witnesses he may produce, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.” Section 3 states, “(1) The privacy of communication and correspondence shall be inviolable except upon lawful order of the court, or when public safety or order requires otherwise as prescribed by law. (2) Any evidence obtained in violation of this or the preceding section shall be inadmissible for any purpose in any proceeding.” Section 7 states, “The right of the people to information on matters of public concern shall be recognized. Access to official records, and to documents and papers pertaining to official acts, transactions, or decisions, as well as to government research data used as basis for notice development, shall be afforded the citizen, subject to such limitations as may be provided by law.”

The Civil Code also states that “every person shall respect the dignity, personality, privacy, and peace of mind of his neighbors and other persons,” and punishes acts that violate privacy by private citizens, public officers, or employees of private companies.

Republic Act No. 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012 provides safeguards meant to ensure that personal and other sensitive data in information technology and communications systems in the government and private sector remain protected and secure.
