This course is a helpful overview of information rights in the UK, EU and Hong Kong. In this course, we examine who has a right of access to information, the extent of that access, who may they exercise that right and the extra-territorial aspects of that right. This course is appropriate for all levels of experience and is a fantastic resource for those needing a refresher on general information and privacy rights.
