The Sales of First-hand Residential Properties Authority (“SRPA”) respects the right to personal data privacy and is committed to complying with requirements of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap.486 of the laws of Hong Kong).
Kinds of Personal Data Held
The SRPA holds personal data in the form of the following types of records -
The SRPA is empowered, pursuant to the provisions in the Residential Properties (First-hand Sales) Ordinance (Cap. 621 of the laws of Hong Kong) (the Ordinance), to establish and maintain an electronic database of information and statistics on the residential property market in Hong Kong and on any development situated in Hong Kong (other than a development to which the Ordinance does not apply). The electronic database contains, among other things, the registers of transactions (the registers) provided by vendors of first-hand residential properties regulated under the Ordinance. The information on the registers, if it is read alone, may not reveal the identity of any individual. However, if such information, e.g. the information on whether the purchaser is a related party to the vendor, is to be read in conjunction with the particulars of the purchaser as shown in the land search, it may be practicable for the identity of the purchaser to be indirectly ascertained.
This includes personal data of members of the public who make enquiries to SRPE.
