What is personal data?
Name, surname, home address, telephone number, e-mail address, location data, IP address, civil state, photo face, habits and preferences, online identifiers and any other data related to the physical, physiological, economic, cultural or social identity that can be used for the direct or indirect identification of a natural person.
Special category of personal data
Data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, data concerning health, genetic data, and biometric data for uniquely identifying a natural person, or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.
The processing of these data is allowed only in cases strictly stipulated by law.
When can I transfer my personal data to other persons?
You may send your personal data independently when this is necessary for the fulfillment of obligations, or when this fact is provided by law.
For example, provide the home address of an online store for the delivery of the order, present the identity card to confirm the age when you buy alcohol in a store, give the personal data to hospital for receiving treatment, etc.
When can I disclose other people’s personal data?
You may process the personal data of other persons if this data is necessary for the achievement of a legal purpose. Provide this information when requested by law enforcement agencies. You can send personal data to the court to defend your rights. In general, the volume and categories of data transmitted must not exceed the stated purpose. If, for example, a divorced person seeks the contact details of the ex-husband / ex-wife, the disclosure of this information would not be justified.
When should you comply with the provisions of the Law on personal data protection?
You should comply with the legislation in the field of personal data protection, whether you collect, store, transfer, disclose by transmission or if, by automated means, you process personal data, which is part of a record system in connection with a professional or commercial activity.
The legislation in the field does not apply to the processing of personal data for personal or domestic purposes (the phone numbers recorded in the phone book, the family photo album, the use of data when selling the property).
