Personal data are processed at any time worldwide – at work, by public authorities and private entities, in the field of health, when trading goods or services, while traveling outside the country or when data subjects surf the Internet.
Data Protection Day is celebrated every year, on January 28. On this occasion, the national authorities responsible for ensuring the protection of personal data organize specific activities to draw attention to the rights and responsibilities regarding the personal data protection. These activities include campaigns aimed at the general public.
Thus, in the context of Data Protection Day, a few employees of the National Center for Personal Data Protection (NCPDP) distributed to passers-by, near the Cathedral Square, information materials on the importance of personal data protection. During the action, citizens were informed about personal data, the rights of personal data subjects, security and confidentiality measures when processing data. At the same time, people have been made aware of possible abuses and consequences of situations in which personal data may be taken by violating the provisions of national law in the field by personal data controllers.
This year, NCPDP aims at organizing several activities to inform the public about the protection of personal data, but also to ensure the development of a constructive and permanent dialogue with all stakeholders in order to identify optimal solutions for the correct application of legal rules in the field of data protection.
