Data Privacy at MIGA

Introduction

The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (“MIGA”) has adopted core privacy principles for its operations, aligned with global standards for personal data protection. MIGA’s Data Privacy Office actively works to protect and maintain the privacy, accuracy and security of the personal data that MIGA collects, handles or processes, and seeks to foster a culture that values privacy through awareness.

MIGA’s Approach to Personal Data Protection:

  • reflects the principles established by the overarching World Bank Group (WBG) Personal Data Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which applies to all personal data collected by MIGA on or after February 1, 2021;
  • is underpinned by appropriate policies and procedures aimed at supporting effective identification and management of privacy risks across MIGA;
  • is driven by a dedicated MIGA Data Privacy Office, which is responsible for implementing the Privacy Policy throughout MIGA, as well as advising staff and monitoring compliance.

Principles Governing Processing of Personal Data by MIGA

The core of the Privacy Policy is the seven principles governing MIGA’s processing of personal data. Personal data is information that identifies an individual (directly or indirectly).   The seven principles are summarized below:

  1. Legitimate, Fair and Transparent: MIGA’s processing of personal data should be for a legitimate purpose and should be fair and transparent to the individual concerned (often called the data subject).
  2. Purpose Limitation and Data Minimization: Personal data collected by MIGA for one purpose may not be used for another purpose, except in accordance with the Privacy Policy; only the personal data needed to accomplish that purpose should be collected.
  3. Data Accuracy: Personal data should be collected, recorded, and maintained as accurately as possible.
  4. Storage Limitation: Personal data should be retained and disposed of according to applicable records retention and disposition schedules.
  5. Security: MIGA should use reasonable technical and organizational measures to avoid accidental destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of or access to personal data.
  6. Transfers of Personal Data: Personal data should only be transferred to third parties for legitimate purposes and with appropriate regard for protection of the personal data transferred.
  7. Accountability and Review: Adopting documentation, processes, and procedures appropriate to implement and oversee compliance with the Privacy Policy.
