Commission of Science, Technology, Communications and Informatics;
Commission of Labour and Public Administration.
While lacking a general law on data protection, there are substantial levels of protection in several fields, under sectoral laws.

Tax Code, concerning tax secrecy;
Bank Secrecy Act, concerning the secrecy of banking operations;
