Consent is not the only available lawful basis for processing personal information. Personal information controllers and other parties engaged in the processing of personal information may also use legitimate interest as a lawful basis for processing. However, these parties must be aware of the conditions and limitations for processing personal information based on legitimate interest. For this reason, the National Privacy Commission (“NPC”) recently issued NPC Circular No. 2023-07, which provides guidelines on the processing of personal information based on legitimate interest. The Circular takes effect on 14 January 2024.
