GDPR:DATA PROTECTION

 

Personal data protection is regulated by supralegal instruments. The main instrument is the Council of Europe Convention no. 108 of 28 January[PH1]  1981 for the Protection of Individuals with Regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, published in the Czech Republic in the Collection of International Treaties under no. 115/2001 Sb.m.c.(PDF) and entered into effect as of 1 November  2001. The Convention is complemented by the Additional Protocol to the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, regarding Supervisory Authorities and Transborder Data Flows published in the Collection of International Treaties under no. 29/2005 Sb. m. s. (PDF), which entered into effect as of 1 July 2004. In Czech Constitutional Law, the basic provisions are Article 7, paragraph 1 and Article 10, paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms.

With regard to the European Union, basic provisions are Article 16 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU) of the Lisbon Treaty and Article 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

The main legal Act in Directive 95/46/EC  of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (content and applicable text) will be replaced as of 25 May 2018 by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The general legal act regulating personal data protection in the Czech Republic is Act no. 101/2000 Sb. (Coll.) on the Protection of Personal Data and on Amendments to Some Acts (applicable text, content), which will be replaced as of 25 May 2018 by the GDPR and by the Czech Adaptation Act.

 

EU Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) provides for the legal framework regarding personal data protection applicable to the whole EU territory and for the protection of EU citizens´ rights against unlawful processing of their data and personal information.

 

GDPR contains all the existing principles relating to data protection and data processing on which EU data protection is based. It confirms that protection “travels” with the data across borders. The GDPR further develops and reinforces the rights of persons concerned by data processing in the two main aspects: having (obtaining) information on which data is being processed and why, requiring compliance with the rules, and seeking remedies. The GDPR systematically promotes effective enforcement of the rights of individuals and the obligations of controllers (responsible for data processing). To achieve that, it provides for more sophisticated and stricter rules for specific types of data and modes of processing. It also requires a more proactive approach from controllers and processors. This concerns especially the obligation to assess the impact of each new data processing on data protection (DPIA), the obligation to use appropriate data protection tools and to consult supervisory authorities in some specific situations.

 

The key element determining controllers´ obligations is the level of risk which is correlated to the scope of processing, the personal nature of data and the use of technologies. Controllers and processors are, in certain cases, obliged to designate a Data Protection Officer. The Regulation provides for more detailed obligations regarding data security and imposes a new obligation i.e. to notify any breach of personal data security to the supervisory authority and to all persons concerned.

 

The GDPR also contains explicit provisions regarding the independence of supervisory authorities, general conditions for their members, their competence, tasks and powers, in the EU member states, the EEE and Switzerland; it furthermore provides for cooperation between these supervisory authorities. It also provides for a uniform approach to sanctions.
