This paper provides a general description of the Chilean personal data protection regime, especially in relation to the main piece of legislation that governs this matter in the country; that is, Law 19.628 ‘On the protection of private life’, commonly referred as the ‘Personal Data Protection Law’. It describes the main elements of the law, in addition to other relevant norms and compares it to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, where relevant. Chile was the first Latin American country to adopt a personal data protection law in Latin America; however, as the description of the current legal scenario shows, it is currently lagging behind in comparison to modern legislation such as the GDPR, which includes relevant distinctions, rights and principles not present in current Chilean law.
