The only two things you should take away from this article
Data is gold, but there are Laws regulating the collection, processing, use, transfer and deletion of customer data in Nigeria.
Your Website, Mobile Application or online personal service is under an obligation to protect personal data in any incidence of processing of such data.
So any how you cut it, this applies to your website or App.
This also applies when you use a third party to collect your data.
Apart from possible criminal liabilities, you will still be liable to pay the following:
- If your website processes more than ten thousand people’s data, you will pay the equivalent of 2% of your annual gross revenue in the preceding year or the payment of 10 million Naira ( which ever is greater).
- If your website processes less than ten thousand people’s data, you will pay the equivalent of 1% of your annual gross revenue in the preceding year or the payment of 2 million Naira ( which ever is greater).
- This can lead to a user bringing a Lawsuit in the future, if her data was used in a way that violates her privacy, because the way or manner in which her data will be used was not stipulated
