Zhong Yin also held a seminar on November 21st, 2013 titled “Beating the Personal Information Protection Act for Direct Selling Companies Seminar”. The purpose of this seminar was to help provide information on how to navigate the Personal Information Protection Act which began enforcement in October of 2012, and the “Practices for the Multi-Level Marketing Companies To Provide Personal Information Security Maintenance as well as Process Personal Information After Business Termination” which was announced by the Fair Trade Commission on April 30th, 2013. In this seminar, attended by well-known foreign and domestic direct selling companies, we explained how managers of direct selling companies can utilize the Personal Information Protection Act to keep their representatives and distributers from being unable to acquire the information of their down-line.
