LGPD: Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais

An English translation of LGPD language is found here.

You might consider LGPD to be the GDPR of Brazil.  An update to the Brazilian Internet Law of 2014, the law’s main goal is to regulate the treatment of personal data of all individuals/natural persons in Brazil.

Organizations incorporated or trading in Brazil that have information of Brazilian nationals in their databases must comply with all procedures and policies provided in the new law, once it becomes enforceable.  Administrative sanctions do not go into effect until August 1, 2021, but claims for losses and damages can be filed now.

Fines for companies that do not follow on the law’s terms may be as much as 2% of their sales revenue, or even up to $50 million Brazilian Real (about $12 million USD).
