What is LGPD?

The Brazil General Data Protection Law,  (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados LGPD), came into force on September 18, 2020. The LGPD is modeled closely after the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and, like the GDPR, governs how individuals and companies collect, use and otherwise process personal data.

The LGPD applies to the processing of personal data by an individual or company if:

  • The processing is carried out in Brazil, or
  • The purpose of the processing is to (i) offer or supply goods or services to individuals located in Brazil, or (ii) process personal data of individuals located in Brazil
  • The personal data is collected in Brazil
