Law No. 13,709/18, or the General Data Protection Law (LGPD), expressly consolidates the principles and rules of a positive framework for data protection in Brazil.

Practically all economic activities will be subject to the application of the LGPD, since the performance of any data processing operation is enough for the standard to find factual support.

Presidential Decree 881/2019, called the Declaration of Economic Freedom Rights, is organized into five chapters and changes a series of laws, among which the most relevant are the Civil Code and the Brazilian Corporations Law. It has gained repercussion as a bet to catapult entrepreneurship, de-bureaucratize economic activity, and contribute to innovation, freeing startups from some bottlenecks caused by the Public Power.
