Across Wuhan, during the Corona riots, the personal information of every Chinese citizen was being collected. At a time when the Corona riots are sweeping the globe, China’s state-of-the-art information bank is being set up. It was said that it would be easy to keep an eye on every citizen. People will get treatment quickly. Later, the Chinese media said that the work of collecting personal information has started from 2016 without beating any drums. The government gets a chance to do the job publicly during the coronation.
Just a year and a half later, in August, Chinese lawmakers passed the Personal Data Protection Act. Which is known to the Chinese as PIPL. That being said, the data bank has been made with the personal information of every citizen by working tirelessly. Which is systematic research. However, no one will be able to take that information if they want to. In the meantime, some regulatory bodies have been given this responsibility. The law is basically a set of rules governing this bank.
Although most Chinese say it is a Pandora’s box for them. The forbidden box was given as a gift at the wedding of Pandora, the first woman in Greek mythology, and Prometheus, the ruler of the human race. That’s the way it is. Because Devraj himself said, this box is mysterious. Opening it will ruin the happiness of life. China’s new data protection law is also a mystery to them. How the Xi Jinping administration will use it is of concern to them now.
This concern of the citizens is not unrealistic at all, say the legal analysts. Meanwhile, media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal have reported that the law is one of the strictest data-driven laws in the world. It is said here that in order to use a person’s information, he has to get the approval of the regulatory body. Again, the permission of the person will be required.

So far, analysts say. According to everyone, the danger of this law is in the next line. Because there it is said, if an organization has a statutory basis, they will be exempted from using the information. That means they can use the person’s information. But who will get the statutory basis? What will be his qualifications? There is no definition of this in the law.
There are more dangers. Citizens were marked with red-green-yellow colors while collecting information during the coronation. Apart from this, points were given based on their various behaviors at other times. Most of the Chinese fear that this marking color and point will bring disaster to the lives of the citizens. They said that in a time of great danger, the information provided by them needed to be verified and given to the data bank. Because now many people can’t go on a trip because of a little mistake. Can’t get admission in university, can’t get job. You can’t even do bank transactions.
Most Chinese have already surrendered to the law. Although they know the source of this law is about the law of confidentiality of information of citizens of the United States and Europe. They also know that in those countries, these laws are as people-friendly as consumer rights laws. But word of mouth, China has not yet enacted a law that would give citizens full access to personal information. Because if you want to take the services of any organization on the internet, you have to give almost all their personal information there.
Yet they are more and more flexible in the pursuit of a bad time. They want to abide by the law on the protection of personal information. But he is demanding the government to correct the incomplete information with which the present data bank has been made. As well as saying, there needs to be a clear rule line between the powers of the regulatory agencies, the organizations that use the information and the individuals. They do not want to follow the mythical mistake of breaking the Pandora’s box provided by Xi Jinping. Especially at the risk of overcoming this catastrophe.
