The right to protection of personal data of persons deprived of liberty in Chilean law. Delimitation of the freedom of information and the right to privacy in conflict situations.

The purpose of the research is to verify whether, in Chile in the period between August 2008 and August 2020, limitations or restrictions made to the right to personal data protection of persons deprived of liberty, based on the legitimate exercise of the freedom of information has been legal. Mainly in cases in which the ejerciese of freedom of information has been bases on the “public interest” of the information requested. In the affirmative case —that is, if the rights to personal data of said subjects have been limited— which is what the main hypothesis poses—, the research seeks to identify and systematize, the grounds that have been used as the basis for limiting such rights.
