Alyanna Marie Manalang is an Associate in Quisumbing Torres, Manila office.

On 7 November 2023, the National Privacy Commission issued Advisory No. 2023-01, which sets out guidance on the nature of deceptive design patterns and how their use by personal information controllers and personal information processors when securing consent vitiates the consent of the data subject and consequently renders the data processing to be without lawful basis.
This Advisory supplements the recently issued NPC Circular No. 2023-04, or the comprehensive guidelines on the use of consent as a lawful basis for processing data, which, among others, prohibits the use of deceptive design patterns.

The National Privacy Commission issued Circular No. 2022-01 on 12 August 2022, entitled “Guidelines on Administrative Fines”. The Circular fixes the administrative fines to be imposed upon personal information controllers or personal information processors for infractions of the Data Privacy Act of 2012, its implementing rules and regulations, and the issuances of the NPC. The Circular takes effect on 27 August 2022 and will apply prospectively. Thus, complaints that have already been filed with the NPC prior to the effectivity date are not covered by the Circular.
