In addition, there are cases where organisations may deny access requests. For example, organisations will not be required to provide access to personal data if it is subject to legal professional privilege, or if the disclosure of the information would reveal confidential commercial information that could harm the competitive position of the organisation. There are also exclusions for access and correction of personal data with respect to any examination conducted by an education institution, examination scripts and examination results prior to their release. Organisations may also refuse access to or refuse to correct opinion data kept solely for an evaluative purpose as defined in the PDPA. The specific exceptions may be found in section 21 and the Fifth Schedule of the PDPA.
