Frequently Asked Questions


  • Is the fact that an individual has passed the entrance exam of a school considered personal information about education, and therefore, qualifies as sensitive personal information?

In our Advisory Opinion No. 2018-020, we treated the names of who have passed entrance exams as personal information. As such, the posting of the names of successful examinees were grounded on Section 12 (f) of the Data Privacy Act of 2012 (DPA) as such posting was necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest of the institution.
