Russia/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.8 Data protection laws

The Law on Personal Data Protection (2006) and the Law on Information, Informatisation and Protection of Information (2006) were adopted following the ratification (2005) of the related Council of Europe Conventions and introduced obligatory protection of personal data disposed of by all the institutions. These laws concern cultural institutions as well but are not extended to archival stocks; since 2010 they are fully enforced. The Fourth Part of the Civil Code (2008) also introduced regulations for the use of personal images.
