    against personal data and on the free movement of such data (OJ L 281 of 23.11.1995, p. 31).

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

The processing of personal data should be designed to serve man. The right to protection of personal data is not an absolute right· It must be assessed in relation to its function in society and be balanced with other fundamental rights, accordance with the principle of proportionality. This Regulation respects all fundamental rights and freedoms and observes the principles recognized by the Charter as enshrined in the Treaties, in particular, respect for private and family life, housing and communications, protection of personal data, freedom of thought, conscience and religion, freedom of expression and information, entrepreneurial freedom, the right to an effective remedy and to a fair trial and the cultural, religious and linguistic diversity.

The economic and social integration, which resulted from the operation of the internal market, result in a significant increase of cross-border flows of personal data character. H exchange of personal data between public and private actors, including natural persons, associations and businesses throughout the Union, has increased. The national authorities of the Member States are required by EU law to collaborate and exchange personal data so that they can perform their duties or perform tasks on behalf of another Member State authority.

Rapid technological developments and globalization have created new challenges for the protection of personal data. The scale of the collection and exchange of personal data has increased significantly. Technology allows both private companies and public authorities to make use of personal data on an unprecedented scale in the pursuit of their activities. Individuals increasingly disclose personal information and make it available worldwide. The technology has changed both the economy and social life and should further facilitate free movement of personal data within the Union and the transfer to third countries and international organizations, while ensuring a high level of protection of personal data.

These developments require a strong and more coherent data protection framework in the Union, SUPPORT tiated by strict application of the law, as it is important to create the necessary trust that will allow the digital economy to grow throughout the internal market. Individuals should have control of their personal data own character. Will legal security should be strengthened and practical certainty for individuals, economic operators and public authorities.

Where this Regulation provides specifications or restrictions on the rules of the law of the Member States, Member States may incorporate elements of this Regulation in their national law, to the extent necessary to ensure consistency and to be understood by the national provisions to persons to whom they apply.

While the objectives and principles of Directive 95/46 / EC remain strong, Directive failed to prevent the fragmentation of the application of data protection throughout the Union, legal uncertainty and a widespread public perception that there are significant risks to the protection of individuals, particularly regarding online activity. Differences in the level of protection of the rights and freedoms of individuals, especially the right to protection of personal data, concerning the processing of personal data within the Member States, may impede the free movement of personal data throughout the Union. Therefore, These differences can be an obstacle to doing business in the Union, distort competition and impede authorities in carrying out their responsibilities, such as those arising from European Union law. This difference in levels of protection is due to divergences in the implementation and application of Directive 95/46 / EC.

To ensure a consistent and high level of protection of individuals and removing obstacles to flows of personal data within the Union, the level of protection of the rights and freedoms of individuals with regard to the processing of such data must be equivalent in all Member States. It should ensure a coherent and uniform application of the rules on the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data throughout the Union. As regards the processing of personal data is to comply with a legal obligation, to fulfill a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, Member States should be allowed to maintain or introduce national provisions to further define the application of the rules of this Regulation. In conjunction with the general and horizontal data protection laws aimed at implementing Directive 95/46 / EC, Member States apply different sectoral laws in areas that require specific provisions. This Regulation also provides room for maneuver to Member States, in order to tailor the rules of, including those relating to the processing of special categories of personal data ("sensitive data"). In this degree, this Regulation does not preclude the Member States' law to determine the circumstances of special processing conditions, inter alia, to define more precisely the conditions under which the processing of personal data is lawful.

  1. (11) Effective protection of personal data throughout the Union requires strengthening and detailed definition of the data subjects' rights, as well as those liabilities proces amplifier operate and determine the processing of personal data, and their respective powers for monitoring and ensuring compliance with the standards of protection of personal data and the corresponding penalties for violations in the Member States.

The smooth functioning of the internal market, the free movement of personal data within the Union should not be limited, nor prohibited for reasons connected with the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data. To take account of the specific situation of micro, small and medium enterprises, this regulation includes a derogation for organizations employing fewer than 250 individuals with regard to record keeping. Furthermore, the institutions and bodies of the Union, as well as Member States and their supervisory authorities, encouraged to take into account the specific needs of micro, small and medium enterprises in the implementation of this Regulation.

  4. (14) The protection afforded by this Regulation should apply to natural persons, irrespective of nationality or residence, in relation to the processing of personal data character. This Regulation does not cover the processing of personal data relating to legal persons and in particular undertakings established as legal entities, including the name, type and contact information of the entity.
  5. (15) In order to prevent a serious risk of circumvention, The protection of individuals should be technologically neutral and not depend on the techniques used. The protection of individuals should apply both to the processing of personal data by automated means, and in manual processing, if personal data are contained or are intended to be included in a filing system. Files or sets of files, as well as their covers, which are not structured according to specific criteria should not fall under the scope of this Regulation.

The rule (EC) No. 45/2001 and other legal acts of the Union which personal data is applicable to such a character processing should be adapted to the principles and rules laid down in this Regulation and applied in the light of this Regulation. To ensure a strong and coherent data protection framework in the Union, after adoption of this Regulation should follow the necessary adaptations to Regulation (FROM) No. 45/2001, to allow the application simultaneously with this Regulation.

commercial activity. Personal or household activities could include correspondence and the address record keeping or social networking and online activity engaged in such activities. However, it shall apply to controllers or processors which provide the personal data processing within character for such personal or domestic activities.

The protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by competent authorities for the purposes of prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offenses or the execution of criminal sanctions, including ensuring against threats to public security and their prevention and the free movement of such data, subject to a specific EU legal act. This Regulation should therefore not apply to the processing activities for those purposes. However, personal data processed by public authorities under this Regulation should, when they used for these purposes, be regulated by specific EU legal act, namely Directive (EU) 2016/680 European Parliament and Council (1). Member States may confer to the competent authorities within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/680 tasks that do not necessarily exercised for the purposes of prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offenses or the execution of criminal sanctions, including ensuring against threats to public security and their prevention, so that the processing of personal data for these purposes, if it falls within the scope of Union law, be within the scope of this Regulation.

With regard to the processing of personal data by those authorities for purposes within the scope of this Regulation, Member States should be able to maintain or introduce specific provisions to adapt the application of the rules of this Regulation. These regulations may specify more precisely the specific requirements for the processing of personal data by those authorities for these purposes, taking into account the constitutional, organizational and administrative structure of the respective Member States. When the processing of personal data by private entities falling within the scope of this Regulation, this Regulation should provide for the possibility for Member States to restrict by law, under special conditions, certain obligations and rights, when such restriction constitutes a necessary and proportionate measure within a democratic society to safeguard especially important interests, including public safety and prevention, investigation, detection and prosecution of criminal offenses or the execution of criminal penalties, including ensuring against threats to public security and their prevention. This matter, for example, in the fight against money laundering or the activities of forensic laboratories.

While this Regulation applies, including, the activities of courts and other judicial authorities, Union law or Member States could specify the operations and processing procedures in relation to the processing of personal data by courts and other judicial authorities. The competence of the supervisory authorities should not cover the processing of personal data, when the courts acting in their judicial capacity, to ensure the independence of the judiciary in the exercise of their judicial functions, including the decision-making. Supervision of the data processing operations should be able to be assigned to specific bodies within the judicial system of the Member State, which should in particular ensure compliance with the rules of this Regulation, to sensitize members of the judiciary with regard to their obligations under this Regulation and to deal with complaints in relation to the said data processing procedures.

This Regulation shall apply without prejudice to Directive 2000/31 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), particularly the rules on the liability of intermediary service providers laid down in Articles 12 until 15 of that Directive. This Directive aims to contribute to the smooth functioning of the internal market, ensuring the free movement of information society services between Member States.

Any processing of personal data in the framework of activities of the facility controller or processor in the Union should be conducted in accordance with this Regulation, regardless of whether the same processing is performed in Union. The installation requires the effective and real exercise of activity through stable arrangements. In this regard, the legal form of such arrangements, whether Annex or a subsidiary with legal personality, It is not decisive.

  1. (23) To ensure that individuals are not deprived of the protection they are entitled under this Regulation, the processing of personal data subjects in the Union by a controller or processor is not established in the Union should be governed by this Regulation, where the processing activities are related to the provision of goods or services to such data subjects, whether related to payment. To determine whether such a controller or processor offers goods or services to data subjects in the Union, it must be determined if the controller or the processor is clearly intended to provide services to data subjects in one or more EU Member States. While the simple accessibility to the website of the controller, a processor or an intermediary in the Union or the email address and other contact or use language elements usually used in the third country where the controller is established is not sufficient to substantiate such intention, factors such as the use of language or currency generally used in one or more Member States, with the possibility of ordering products and services on that other language, or reference customers or users located in the Union may make it clear that the data controller intends to offer goods or services to data subjects in the Union.
  2. (24) The personal data of persons who are in the Union by a controller or processor is not established in the Union should also be covered by this Regulation, if the monitoring of the behavior of such data subjects to the extent that their behavior is taking place within the Union. To determine whether a processing activity can be considered to monitor the behavior of the data subject, it should be ascertained whether individuals are tracked on the Internet, including potential subsequent use of personal data processing technical nature which consists in shaping the "profile" of a natural person, in particular in order to take decisions concerning him or to analyze or predict personal preferences, behaviors and attitudes.
  3. (25) If the law of a Member State applies by virtue of public international law, this Regulation should also apply to a controller not established in the Union, such as, for example, for the diplomatic mission or consular post of a Member State.
  4. (26) The principles of data protection should apply to any information concerning an identified or identifiable natural person. Personal data which have been psefdonymopoiisi, which could be attributed to an individual through the use of supplementary information, They should be considered information about identifiable natural person. To determine whether a person is identifiable, They should be taken of all the means that are reasonably likely to be used, for example, the separation of, either by the controller or by a third party for direct or indirect identification of the individual identity. To see if any means reasonably likely to be used to verify the identity of the natural person, should take into account all the objective factors, as the cost and time required to identify, taking into account the technology available at the time of processing and technology developments. The principles of data protection should therefore not apply to anonymous information, ie information which is not related to an identified or identifiable natural person or personal data have been rendered anonymous so that the identity of the data subject can not or can no longer be ascertained. This Regulation is therefore the treatment of such anonymous information, not including for statistical or research purposes.
  5. (27) This Regulation shall not apply to personal data deceased. Member States may provide rules for processing personal data deceased.
  6. (28) Using psefdonymopoiisis to personal data can reduce the risks to data subjects and facilitate their controllers and processors to meet the relevant requirements of the Data Protection. The explicit introduction of "psefdonymopoiisis" of this regulation is not intended to exclude any other data protection measure.
  7. (29) To create incentives for psefdonymopoiisi when processing personal data, It should be possible to take measures psefdonymopoiisis, whilst allowing a generic analysis, within the same controller, when said controller has taken the technical and organizational measures necessary, to ensure, for the relevant data processing, the application of this Regulation and additional information about the performance of personal data to the data subject concerned are kept separate. The data controller who processes personal data should designate authorized persons within the same controller.

Individuals may be associated with online identifiers items, which are provided by the devices, applications, tools and protocols, such as Internet Protocol addresses, IDs cookies or other identifiers such as radio frequency identification tags. These may leave traces which, especially when combined with unique identifiers and other information received by the servers, They can be used to create profiles of individuals and recognize their identity.

The public authorities to which the personal data disclosed in accordance with a legal obligation to perform their official duties, such as tax and customs authorities, economic research units, independent administrative authorities or financial markets authorities responsible for the regulation and supervision of securities markets should not be regarded as recipients, if they receive personal data necessary to carry out a special investigation in the public interest, under the law of the Union or a Member State. The disclosure requests sent by public authorities should always be written, justified under the circumstances and should not involve the entirety of a filing system or lead to the linking of filing systems. The processing of personal data by these public authorities should comply with applicable data protection rules depending on purposes of the processing.

Consent should be provided with clear positive energy which constitute free, specific, explicit and informed indication of the agreement of the data subject for the processing of data concerning him, for example by written declaration, including by electronic means, or oral statement. This could include the completion of a box when visiting a web site, select the desired technical arrangements for services of the information society or a statement or conduct which clearly indicates, in this context, that the data subject accepts the proposal processing of their personal data. Therefore, the silence, the pre-checked boxes or inaction should not be construed as consent. Consent should cover all processing activities carried out for the same purpose or for the same purposes. When the processing has multiple purposes, consent should be given for all these purposes. If the consent of the data subject will be given upon request electronically, the request must be clear, comprehensive and not unreasonably disturb the use of the service which is provided.

Often, It can not be fully determined the purpose of processing personal data for scientific research at the time of data collection. Hence, data subjects should be able to give their consent to certain areas of scientific research, when the recognized ethical standards are followed for scientific research. Data subjects should be allowed to give their consent only in certain areas of research or only parts of research programs, to the extent permitted by its intended purpose.

As genetic data should be defined personal data associated with inherited or apokektimena genetic characteristics of an individual resulting from the biological sample analysis of the natural person, especially from chromosomal deoxyribonucleic acid analysis (DNA) or ribonucleic acid (RNA) or concerning another element that allows to obtain equivalent information.

Personal data relating to health should include all data related to the health status of the data subject and which reveal information about the past, current or future state of physical or mental health of the data subject.

H main installation of the controller Union should be the place of central administration in the Union, unless decisions on the purposes and means of processing personal data obtained in another establishment of the controller in the Union, so that another facility will be regarded as the main installation. The main establishment of a controller in the Union should be determined according to objective criteria and should imply the effective and real exercise of management activities which determine the major decisions regarding the purposes and means of processing through stable arrangements. This criterion should not depend whether the processing

Personal data may be in this location. The existence and use of technical means and technologies for processing personal data or processing activities do not constitute itself’ se main installation, therefore, not constitute decisive criteria for the main installation. The main establishment of the processor should be the place of central administration in the Union or, if he has no head office in the Union, the place where the main processing activities in the Union. In cases where both the controller and the processor, responsible chief supervisory authority should remain the supervisory authority of the Member State where the main establishment of the controller, but the supervisor of the processor should be regarded as concerned supervisor and that supervisor should participate in the cooperation procedure laid down in this Regulation. In each case, the supervisory authorities of the Member State or States where the processor has one or more establishments should not be regarded as supervisory authorities concerned when the draft decision relates only to the controller. When processing is carried out by business group, as a principal place of controlling undertaking should be considered the principal place of business group, unless the purpose and means of processing are determined by another company.

  1. (37) The group of enterprises should cover the controlling company and companies it controls, where the controlling undertaking should be the undertaking which can exercise a dominant influence over the other undertakings under, for example, ownership, financial participation or the rules which govern it or the personal data protection rules applying power. Undertaking exercising control over the processing of personal data to associated enterprises should be considered, together with these companies, business group.
  2. (38) Children require special protection for their personal data, as children may be less aware of the risks, consequences and safeguards and their rights in relation to the processing of personal data. This special protection will especially be true in the use of personal data for marketing or creating personality profiles or user profiles and collect personal data relating to children when using services directly offered to a child. The consent of the parent or guardian should not be necessary in connection with prevention advice or services directly available to a child.
  3. (39) Any processing of personal data must be lawful and fair. It should be clear to individuals that personal data concerning them are collected, they are used, considered or submitted by’ otherwise processed, and to what extent personal data are or will be processed. That principle requires that any information and communication on the processing of their personal data to be easily accessible and understandable, and use clear and simple language. This principle relates in particular to inform data subjects about the identity of the controller and the purposes of the processing and further information in order to ensure fair and transparent process in relation to these individuals and their right to obtain confirmation and to achieve communication relating to these personal data are processed. You should be available to natural persons risk being, rules, safeguards and rights in relation to the processing of personal data and how to exercise their rights in relation to such processing. Especially, the personal data specific purposes of the processing should be clear, legal and determinate when the collection of personal data. Personal data should be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes of their processing. This requires, in particular to ensure that the storage of personal data is limited to the minimum. Personal data should be processed only if the purpose of processing can not be achieved by other means. To ensure that personal data is not kept longer than necessary, the controller should set deadlines for their removal or for their periodic review. It should take all reasonable steps, to ensure that personal data which are inaccurate be corrected or deleted. Personal data should be processed in a manner to ensure appropriate protection and confidentiality of personal data, inter alia, to prevent any unauthorized access to such personal data and to equipment used to process or use personal data and of such equipment.
  4. (40) To be treated fairly, personal data must be processed by the consent of the data subject or other basis, statutory, or in this Regulation or in other legislation of the Union or a Member State as mentioned in this

 

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

Regulation, including the need to comply with the legal obligation to which the controller is subject, or the need to perform a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to contract.

Whenever this regulation refers to the legal basis or legislative measure, this does not necessarily require legislation approved by a parliament, subject to the requirements in accordance with the constitutional order of the Member State. However, this legal basis or legislative measure should be worded clearly and precisely and its application is foreseeable for persons subject to this, according to the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice (the court") and the European Court of Human Rights.

When the processing is based on consent of the data subject, the controller must be able to prove that the data subject has consented to the processing operation. particularly, under a written declaration on another matter, They should be guarantees to ensure that the data subject is aware of this fact and to what extent has consented. Under Directive 93/13 / EEC (1), You should be provided consent form, drafted in advance by the controller in a comprehensible and easily accessible form, clear and simple wording, without unfair. To be considered informed consent, the data subject should know at least the identity of the controller and the purposes of processing the intended personal data. The consent should not be considered as freely given if the data subject has no real or free choice or not be able to refuse or withdraw consent without prejudicing.

To ensure that the consent is given freely, consent should not provide a valid legal basis for processing personal data in a particular case, when there is a clear imbalance between the data subject and the controller, especially where the controller is a public authority and is therefore unlikely to have given consent freely to all the circumstances of this specific situation. Consent is deemed not to have been given freely, if not allowed to give a separate consent to different processing personal data nature, even if it is appropriate in this case, or when the performance of a contract, Including mathe- a service, the consent, even if such consent is not necessary for such execution.

The treatment should also be lawful, necessary under contract or contract of intent.

When processing is carried out under a legal obligation to which the controller under or when necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, treatment should be based on Union law or Member State. This Regulation does not require specific law for each individual treatment. a single law may suffice as a basis for more than one processing operations based on a legal obligation to which the controller is subject or where processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority. Also, the definition of the purpose of processing should be left to the law of the Union or a Member State. Furthermore, this law could determine the general conditions of this Regulation governing the lawful processing of personal data and to adopt specifications for the determination of the controller, the kind of personal data processed, the respective data subjects, the entities can koinolo gountai personal data, the objective constraints, storage period and other measures to ensure lawful and fair processing. Also, It should be left to the Union law or the law of the Member States to define whether the controller to fulfill a duty performed in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority should be a public authority or other natural or legal person governed public law or, if this is justified by reasons of public interest, including for health reasons, such as public health and social protection and healthcare services management, by private law, as a professional body.

The processing of personal data should also be considered lawful where it is necessary to protect an interest which is essential for the life of the data subject or another individual. The processing of personal data by the vital interests of another individual should,’

principle be carried out only if it is obvious that the processing can not have another legal basis. Some types of treatment can be used both for important reasons of public interest and the other for the vital interests of the data subject, such as, for example, when the processing is necessary for humanitarian purposes, including to monitor epidemics and their spread, or in situations of urgent humanitarian need, especially in cases of natural and man-made disasters.

  1. (47) The legitimate interests of the controller, including those of a controller which can be disclosed the personal data or third, can provide a legal basis for processing, provided they do not override the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, taking into account the legitimate expectations of data subjects on the basis of their relationship with the controller. Such an interest might for instance occur when no relevant and appropriate relation between the data subject and the controller, as if the data subject is a client of the controller or in the service of. In any event, the existence of legitimate interest would need careful assessment, inter alia, as to whether the data subject, at the time and in the context of the collection of personal data, it is reasonable to expect that for this purpose may be processed. particularly, the interests and fundamental rights of the data subject could take precedence over the interests of the controller, when personal data are processed in cases where the data subject is not reasonably expect further processing of data. Since it is for the legislature to provide by law the legal basis for the processing of personal data by public authorities, this legal basis should not be applied to the treatment by public authorities in the performance of their duties. H processing of personal data, to the extent strictly necessary for fraud prevention purposes, also constitute a legitimate interest of the data controller. H processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes can be considered that an instance of a legitimate interest.
  2. (48) The controllers that are members of group of companies or institutions associated with central body may have a legitimate interest to transfer personal data within the business group for internal administrative purposes, including the processing of personal customer or employee data. The general principles of the transmission of personal data, within a group of companies, to an undertaking established in a third country are not affected.
  3. (49) The processing of personal data, insofar as is strictly necessary and proportionate for the purposes of ensuring network and information security, ie the ability of a network or an information system to resist, at a given confidence level, accidental events or unlawful or malicious actions that compromise the availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of stored or transmitted tiveness personal data, and security of the services offered by these networks and systems or accessible via these networks and systems, or offered by public authorities, of Emergency Response Teams in IT (CERT), from intervention teams for events related to computer security (CSIRT), from network providers of electronic communications services and providers of technologies and security services, It constitutes a legitimate interest of the data controller. This could include, for example, preventing unauthorized access to electronic communications networks and malicious code distribution and stopping "denial of service attacks" and damage to computer systems and electronic communications.
  4. (50) The processing of personal data for purposes other than those for which the personal data was originally collected should only be allowed where processing is compatible with the purposes for which the personal data was originally collected. In this case, no separate legal basis is required than that allowed for the collection of personal data. If the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, Union law or Member State may determine and define the tasks and purposes for which they should be considered compatible and lawful further processing. Further processing for archival reasons relating to the public interest, for purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes should be considered compatible unlawful processing operation. The legal basis provided for by the law of the Union or a Member State for processing personal data may also constitute the legal basis for the further processing. To determine whether the purpose of further processing is compatible with the purpose of the original collection of personal data, the controller, if it meets all the requirements for the legality of the initial processing, You should take into account, including: any links between those objectives and goals of the intended further processing· the context in which personal data collected, especially the reasonable expectations of the data subject on the basis of its relationship with the controller for their further use· the nature of the personal data· the

consequences of the intended further processing of the data subjects· and the existence of adequate safeguards for both the original and the intended further processing operations.

When the data subject has provided his consent or processing is based on the law of the Union or a Member State constitutes a necessary and proportionate measure within a democratic society to ensure, particularly, major objectives in the context of general public interest, It should allow the controller to carry out further processing of personal data, regardless of the compatibility of the purposes. In each case, It should ensure the application of the principles laid down in this Regulation and, Especially, inform the data subject on those other purposes and on their rights, including the right to object. Labeling possible crime or threats to public safety by the controller and the transmission of personal related data to a competent authority in an individual case or to more than one cases involving the same offense or the same threats to public safety it should be considered as falling within the legitimate interests pursued by the controller. However, The transmission is within the legitimate interest of the controller or the further processing of personal data should be prohibited, if the process is not compatible with legal, professional or other binding obligation of confidentiality.

Personal data which are particularly sensitive in nature in relation to fundamental rights and freedoms requiring special protection, because the context of the treatment could create serious risks for the fundamental rights and freedoms. These personal data should include personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, where the use of the term 'racial origin' in this Regulation does not imply that the Union accepted theories that support the existence of separate human races. Photo editing should not systematically be considered to be processing of special categories of personal data, as these are covered by the definition of biometric data only where processing by means of special technical means which allow unambiguous identification or authentication of a natural person. Such personal data must not be processed, unless such treatment is allowed in special cases provided for in this Regulation, whereas the law of Member States may lay down specific provisions on data protection, to adapt the application of the rules of this Regulation to comply with legal obligations or fulfill this task performed in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. Apart from the specific requirements which subject such processing, They should apply the general principles and other rules of this Regulation, particularly in,Regarding the legal treatment conditions. Exceptions to the general prohibition of personal data character falling within those specific categories should be expressly provided, including, in case of express consent of the data subject or in respect of disabled, particular where the processing is carried out under legitimate activities of certain associations or foundations, whose purpose is to permit the exercise of fundamental freedoms.

The derogation from the prohibition on processing of special categories of personal data should also be allowed where provided by Union law or Member State and subject to appropriate safeguards, to protect personal data and other fundamental rights, if justified by reasons of public interest, in particular the processing of personal data in the area of ​​labor law, the social protection law, including pensions, and for health safety purposes, monitoring and alarm for preventing or controlling communicable diseases and other serious health threats. This exception can be made for health purposes, including public health and health care management, in particular in order to ensure the quality and efficiency cost of the procedures used for settling claims for benefits and services in the health insurance system, or for archiving purposes in the public interest, purposes of scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. It should also be a derogation to allow the processing of such personal data when it is necessary to establish, training or support legal claims, either in legal proceedings or in any administrative or extra-judicial process.

The processing of special categories of personal data that require higher protection should be made only for purposes related to health, if this is necessary to achieve those objectives, for the benefit of individuals and society as a whole, particularly in the context of service management and healthcare systems and social care, including the processing of such data by the management and the central national health authorities for the purpose of quality control, information management and overall national and local oversight of health care or social care, and ensuring continuity of healthcare or social work and cross-border healthcare or health security, for monitoring and alarm purposes or for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research or

statistical purposes, by Union law or Member States with a view to serve the public interest, as well as studies carried out in the public interest in the public health sector. consequently, this Regulation should provide for harmonized conditions for the processing of special categories of personal health related data, compared with Disabilities, particular where the processing of these data is carried out for certain purposes concerning the health of persons who are under a legal obligation of professional secrecy. Union law or Member States should provide specific and adequate measures for the protection of fundamental rights and personal data of individuals. Member States should be able to maintain or introduce further conditions, including restrictions, regarding the processing of genetic data, biometric data or data concerning health. However, this should not prevent the free movement of personal data within the Union, when those conditions apply to cross-border processing of such data.

  1. (54) The processing of special categories of personal data may be necessary in the public interest in the fields of public health, without the consent of the data subject. Such processing should be subject to appropriate and specific measures to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals. In this context, "public health" should be interpreted as defined in Regulation (FROM) No. 1338/2008 European Parliament and Council (1), ie all the elements associated with health, namely health, including morbidity and disability, the determinants that affect health, healthcare needs, the resources available for health care, the provision of health care and universal access to it, and the costs and financing of health care and the causes of mortality. This data relating to health in the public interest should not result in the processing of personal data for other purposes by third parties, such as employers or insurance companies and banks.
  2. (55) Furthermore, the processing of personal data by official authorities for achieving aims officially recognized religious associations, laid down in constitutional law or international public law, thing topoieitai public interest.
  3. (56) If, under electoral activities, the operation of the democratic system in a Member State shall require of political parties personal data relating to political opinions of citizens, the processing of such data may be permitted for reasons of public interest, if provided adequate safeguards.
  4. (57) If personal data is processed by a controller do not permit the controller to identify a natural person, the data controller should not be obliged to acquire additional information, to identify the data subject for the sole purpose of complying with any provision of this Regulation. However, the controller should not refuse to receive additional information provided by the data subject in order to support the exercise of his rights. The identification should include digital identification of the data subject, for example through the authentication mechanism, as the same identification information are used by the data subject upon entry (log-in) the online service provided by the controller.
  5. (58) The principle of transparency requires that any information addressed to the public or to the data subject be brief, easily accessible and easily understood and clear and simple wording and, Furthermore, where appropriate, display. Such information could be provided in electronic form, for example, when intended for the public, via website. This is particularly important in cases where a multitude of participants and the complexity of technologies make it difficult for the data subject to know and understand if, by whom and for what purpose the collected personal data relating,as in the case of online advertising. Since children need special protection, each information and communication, if the treatment is aimed at children, It should be expressed in clear and simple language that the child can easily understand.
  6. (59) They should provide ways to enable the data subject to exercise his rights under this Regulation, among other mechanisms by which to request and, where appropriate, be obtained free, Especially, access to personal data and correct or delete them and to exercise the right to object. The controller should also provide the means for electronic submission of requests, especially when personal data are processed electronically. The controller should be obliged to respond to requests of the data subject without delay and at the latest within one month and to provide justification, when it does not intend to comply with any such requests.

(1) regulation (FROM) No. 1338/2008 European Parliament and Council, of December 16 2008, on Community statistics on public health and health and safety at work (OJ L 354 of 31.12.2008, p. 70).

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

The principles of fair and transparent processing require to inform the data subject of the existence of the processing operation and its purposes. The controller should provide the data subject any further information that is necessary to ensure fair and transparent treatment, taking into account the specific circumstances and context in which it is carried out the processing of personal data. Further, the data subject will be the consequences and what profile must be updated if it is established. If personal data provided by the data subject, the data subject should also be informed whether obliged to provide personal data and for the consequences, when it does not provide such data. This information can be provided in combination with standardized icons to be placed prominently, understandable and legible way an essential overview of the intended processing. If the icons are available electronically, They should be machine-readable.

Information in relation to the processing of personal data relating to the data subject should be provided in the collection of the data subject or, if the personal data received from another source, within a reasonable time, depending on the circumstances of each case. If personal data may be disclosed to another recipient, the data subject must be informed, when personal data are disclosed for the first time to the recipient. When the controller intends to process personal data for a purpose other than that for which it was collected, the data controller should provide the data subject, prior to said further processing, Information for this purpose and other necessary information. When the origin of personal data can not be disclosed to the data subject because different sources have been used, They should be given general information.

However, it is not necessary to impose the obligation to provide information, if the data subject already has the information, if recording or disclosure of personal data is expressly provided by law or if the provision of information to the data subject proves impossible or would require a disproportionate effort. The latter could be particularly, when the treatment is for archival purposes in the public interest, for purposes of scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. connection, They should take into account the number of data subjects, the age of the data and any appropriate safeguards introduced.

A data subject shall have the right to access personal data collected and concern and to exercise this right easily and at reasonable intervals, to be aware and verify the lawfulness of processing. This includes the right of data subjects to have access to data concerning their health, for example the data in their medical records containing such information as diagnosis, test results, assessments by treating physicians and any treatment or interventions rendered. Therefore, every data subject should have the right to know and the especially announced for what purpose is the processing of personal data, if possible, how long is the processing of personal data, recipients who receive personal data, What logic is followed in any automatic processing of personal data and what could be the consequences of such processing, at least when based on profiling. The controller should be able to provide remote access to a secure system through which the data subject gains direct access to the data concerning him. This right should not adversely affect the rights or freedoms of others, such as professional secrecy or the right to intellectual property and, particularly, copyright protecting the software. However, These factors should not result in the denial of any information to the data subject. When the Controller process large amounts of information about the data subject, the controller should be able to ask the subject, given prior information, specify the information or processing activities associated with the request.

The controller should use all reasonable measures to verify the identity of the data subject that requests access, particularly in the context of online services and online identifiers identity. The controller should not retain personal data for the sole purpose to be able to respond to potential requests.

A data subject shall have the right to request correction of personal data relating to him, and the "right to oblivion", if the retention of such data violates this Regulation or the law of the Union or the Member State where the controller is subject. Especially, the data subject should have the right to request the deletion and termination of the processing of personal data relating to him, if the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are collected or submitted pursuant’ otherwise processed, if the data subject withdraws consent to treatment or if object to the processing of personal data relating to him or if the processing of personal data relating to him are not in accordance with this Regulation in’ otherwise. This right is particularly important where the data subject has provided his consent as a child, when he was not fully aware

4.5.2016

Official Journal of the European Union

the risks of treatment, and later wants to remove certain personal data, mainly from the Internet. The data subject should be able to exercise this right even though it is no longer child. However, further conservation of personal data should be lawful where it is necessary for the exercise of the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, to fulfill a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, public interest in the public health sector, for archival purposes in the public interest, for purposes of scientific or historical research or statistical purposes, or for establishing, training or support legal claims.

  1. (66) To strengthen the right to be forgotten in the online environment, the right to erasure should also be extended in such a way that the controller who published the personal data be required to inform the controllers process such personal data in order to erase any links or copy or replication of that data personal. When it does so, said controller must take reasonable steps, considering the technology available and the means available to the data controller, including technical measures, to inform controllers who process personal data on the data subject's request.
  2. (67) Methods used to restrict the processing of personal data could include, including, the temporary movement of the selected data to another processing system, removing the accessibility of selected personal data by users or temporary removal of published data from website. In automated filing systems limiting processing should in’ principle be ensured by technical means so that personal data is not subject to further processing operation and can not be changed. The fact that the processing of personal data is limited will be indicated in the system.
  3. (68) To further strengthen the control over the personal data, when the processing of personal data carried out by automated means, the data subject should also be allowed to receive personal data relating to him which has provided a controller, a structured, commonly used and machine readable format interoperable, and forward them to another controller. The data controllers should include encouraging nontai develop interoperable formats allow data portability. This right should apply where the data subject has provided the personal data with consent or where the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract. It should not apply where the processing is based on powers other than consent or agreement. From the nature of this right should not be exercised by controllers who process personal data in the exercise of their public duties. It should therefore apply where processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject, or to fulfill a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. The right of the data subject to transmit or receive personal data relating to him should not create an obligation for controllers to adopt or maintain treatment systems that are compatible technically. When, a particular set of personal data, affected more than one data subjects, the right to receive personal data should not affect the rights and freedoms of other data subjects under this Regulation. Furthermore, this right should not prejudice the right of the data subject to request the deletion of personal data or limitations of this right, as provided for in this Regulation and in particular should not lead to deletion of personal data concerning the data subject of the personal character and which has been supplied by it under a contract, the extent and if this data is necessary for the performance of this contract. When technically feasible, the data subject should have the right to ensure that personal data are transferred directly from one controller to another.
  4. (69) Where personal data may be legitimately processed because processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller or for reasons legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, any data subject should be entitled to par’ all of them to object to the processing of any personal data relating to the particular situation. It should be for the controller to prove that the imperative legitimate interests may override the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.
  5. (70) Where personal data are processed for purposes of direct marketing, the data subject should have the right to object to such processing, including training profile to the extent that is associated with that direct marketing, whether initial or for further processing, at any time and without charge. This right must be specifically brought to the attention of the data subject, and clearly shown separately from any other information.

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

The data subject should have the right not to be subject to a decision, which may include some measure, which evaluate personal aspects relating to him, obtained solely on automated processing and which produces legal effects for that person or significantly affects accordingly, like automatic refusal online credit application or electronic hiring practices without human intervention. This treatment involves "profiling" which consists of any form of automated processing of personal data to evaluate personal aspects relating to a natural person, especially analyzing or predicting aspects of performance at work, the economic situation, health, personal preferences or interests, reliability or behavior, the position or movement of the data subject, insofar as legally effective against such person or significantly affects analogously. However, a decision based on this treatment, including training profile, It should be allowed when expressly provided by the law of the Union or a Member State, in which the controller is subject, including for purposes of monitoring and prevention of fraud and tax evasion in accordance with Regulations, the standards and recommendations of the institutions of the Union and national supervisory bodies and to ensure the safety and reliability of the service provided by the controller, or when it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or when the data subject has provided their explicit consent. In each case, such processing should be subject to appropriate safeguards, which should include specific information of the data subject and the right securing human intervention, the right of expression of opinion of, the right to receive reasons for the decision taken in the context of this assessment and the right to challenge the decision. This measure should not concern a child.

In order to ensure a fair and transparent process in relation to the data subject, taking into account the specific circumstances and context in which it is carried out the processing of personal data, the controller should use appropriate mathematical or statistical procedures for compiling the profile, to implement technical and organizational measures, to correct the factors that lead to inaccuracies in personal data and to minimize the risk of errors, make secure personal data in a way that takes into account the potential risks associated with the interests and rights of the data subject and in a way that prevents, including, the discriminatory effects against individuals on the basis of racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religion or belief, participation in trade unions, genetic condition or health status or sexual Guidance, or equivalent measures. Automated decision making and profiling based on specific categories of personal data should only be allowed under specific conditions.

The profiling is subject to the rules of this Regulation governing the processing of personal data, as legal grounds for processing or data protection authorities. In this context, the European Data Protection Board established by this Regulation ("Data Protection Board") You should be able to give directions.

They may be imposed by Union law or Member State law restrictions on certain fundamental principles and rights to information, access and rectification or erasure of personal data, the right to data portability, the right to object, the decisions based on profiling, and the violation of personal data communication to the data subject and on certain related obligations of the controllers, to the extent that is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society to safeguard public security, including the protection of human life, particularly in the event of natural or man-made disasters, prevention, investigation and prosecution of criminal offenses or the execution of criminal sanctions, including ensuring against threats to public security and their prevention or ethical violations in regulated professions, other important objectives of general public interest of the Union or a Member State, in particular an important economic or financial interest of the Union or a Member State, compliance with public records in the general interest, further processing of personal data archived to provide specific information on the political behavior in former authoritarian regimes or the protection of the data subject or the rights and freedoms of others, including social protection, public health and humanitarian purposes. These restrictions should be in conformity with the requirements laid down in the Charter and the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

It should establish responsibility and compensation of the controller for any processing of personal data performed by the controller or on behalf of the controller. particularly, the controller should be obliged to implement properly and effectively measure and be able to demonstrate the conformity of processing operations with this Regulation, including the effectiveness of the measures. These measures should take into account the nature, the frame, the scope and purposes of the processing and the risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

  1. (75) The risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, varying probability and severity, They can be obtained from the processing of personal data which could lead to physical, physical or non-physical damage, especially when the treatment may lead to discrimination, abuse or identity theft, financial loss, reputation damage, loss of confidentiality of personal data protected by professional secrecy, unlawful removal of psefdonymopoiisis, or any other significant economic or social disadvantage· when data subjects could be deprived of their rights and freedoms or prevented from exercising control over their personal data· when subjected to processing of personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political convictions, religion or philosophical beliefs or participation in trade unions and processed genetic data, data concerning health or data relating to sexual life or criminal convictions or related offenses and security measures· when personal aspects evaluated, especially when trying to analyze or predict aspects of performance at work, the economic situation, health, personal preferences or interests, reliability or behavior, the position or movements, to create or use personal profiles· when they processed personal data vulnerable individuals, especially children· or where the treatment involves a large amount of personal data and affects a large number of data subjects.
  2. (76) The likelihood and seriousness of the risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subject should be determined by reference to the nature, the scope, the context and purpose of the processing. This risk should be assessed on an objective assessment, declaring whether data processing operations involve risk or high risk.
  3. (77) Guidance for the implementation of appropriate measures and to demonstrate compliance of the controller and processor, in particular as regards the determination of the risks associated with the treatment, their assessment in terms of origin, nature, probability and severity and identify best practices for risk reduction will in particular can be provided with approved codes of conduct, approved certifications, guidelines provided by the Data Protection Board or to the instructions provided DPO. The Data Protection Board may also issue guidelines on processing operations that are considered to be unlikely to lead to a high risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals, which would indicate what measures may be sufficient in this case to address the relative risk.
  4. (78) The protection of the rights and freedoms of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data requires that appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that the requirements of this Regulation. To be able to demonstrate compliance with this Regulation, the controller should adopt internal policies and implement measures that respond in particular to the principles of data protection by design and by default. Such measures could include, including, minimizing the processing of personal data, psefdonymopoiisi the personal data as soon as possible, transparency regarding the functions and processing of personal data, to enable the data subject to monitor the data processing and to be able the controller creates and improves the security features. In developing, design, selecting and using applications, services and products based on the processing of personal data or down processing of personal data for the performance of their duties, the producers, services and applications should be encouraged to take into account the right to data protection, in the development and design of such products, services and applications, in order that, taking into account the latest developments, ensuring that controllers and processors would be able to fulfill their obligations regarding data protection. The principles of data protection by design and by default should also be taken into account in public procurement.
  5. (79) The protection of rights and freedoms of data subjects, as well as the responsibility and liability for damages to controllers and performing processing, including in relation to monitoring by supervisory authorities and supervisory measures, It requires a clear allocation of responsibilities under this Regulation, including the case where a controller determines the purposes and means of the processing jointly with other controllers or where a processing operation is carried out on behalf of a controller.
  6. (80) If a controller or processor is not established in the Union is processing personal data subjects which are in the Union and perform processing activities related to the supply of goods or services, or require payment from the person or not, in these subjects in the Union or the monitoring of their behavior to the extent that their behavior takes place in the Union, the controller or the processor should designate a representative, unless the processing is casual, does not include processing, in big scale, personal data or processing personal data relating to criminal convictions and offenses and is likely to result in danger to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, taking into account the scope, the frame, the nature and purposes of the processing, or if the controller is a public authority or body. The representative should act on behalf of the controller or processor and that can be addressed each supervisor. The representative should be clearly defined

L 119/16

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

(81)

written authority of the controller or the processor to act on his behalf in respect of their obligations under this Regulation. The appointment of the representative shall not affect the responsibility or accountability of the controller or the processor under this Regulation. This representative should perform its duties according to the mandate given by the controller or the processor, inter alia cooperate with the competent authorities of any measures taken to ensure compliance with this Regulation. The appointed representative will be subject to enforcement procedures in case of non-compliance by the controller or the processor.

To ensure compliance with the requirements of this Regulation with regard to the conduct of processing by the processor, by the controller, where assigned to the processor processing activities, the controller should use only processors who offer adequate assurances, particularly in terms of expertise, credibility and resources, to implement technical and organizational measures to meet the requirements of this Regulation, including those concerning security of processing. The accession of the processor to an approved code of conduct or an approved certification scheme can be used as evidence to prove compliance with the obligations of the controller. The treatment of the processor must be governed by a contract or other legal act, based on Union law or the law of the Member States, connecting the processor to the controller, which defines the scope and duration of treatment, the nature and purposes of the processing, the kind of personal data and categories of data subjects, taking into account the specific tasks and responsibilities of the processor as part of the processing to be carried out and the risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects. The controller and the processor may opt to use an individual contract or standard contractual clauses or approved directly by the Commission or by a supervisory authority in accordance with the consistency mechanism and subsequently approved by the Commission. After completion of the processing on behalf of the controller, the processor should, depending on the choice of the controller, return or delete the personal data, unless required to store personal data under Union law or the law of the Member State in which the processor belongs.

To be able to demonstrate compliance with this Regulation, the controller or the processor shall keep records of processing operations under their responsibility. Each controller and each processor should be obliged to cooperate with the supervisory authority and to make available the, upon request, such records, so it can be used for monitoring of specific processing operations.

To maintain security and to prevent processing in breach of this Regulation, the controller or processor should evaluate the risks inherent in the processing and implement measures to mitigate those risks, such as through encryption. These measures should ensure an appropriate level of security, which includes the confidential tiveness, taking into account the latest developments and the cost of implementation in relation to the risks and nature of personal data to be protected. In assessing the risk to data security should be given to the risks arising from the processing of personal data, such as accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change, unauthorized disclosure of or access to personal data transmitted, stored or subjected flat’ otherwise processed which could result in physical, physical or non-physical damage.

In order to reinforce compliance with this Regulation when processing operations may result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals, the controller will be responsible for conducting impact assessment on data protection, to assess, Especially, source, nature, the likelihood and severity of this risk. The result of the assessment should be taken into account when determining what action should be taken to demonstrate that the processing of personal data is in accordance with this Regulation. If the impact assessment on data protection indicates that processing operations involve a high risk that the controller can not be mitigated by appropriate measures in terms of available technology and implementation costs, They should be consulted by the supervisory authority before processing.

Violation of personal data may, if not addressed in an adequate and timely, result in physical, physical or non-physical harm to individuals, such as loss of control over their personal data or restriction of their rights, discriminatory, abuse or identity theft, financial loss, unlawful removal of psefdonymopoiisis, damage to reputation, loss of confidentiality of personal data protected by professional secrecy or other important social or economic disadvantage to the individual concerned. Consequently, as soon as the controller

Official Journal of the European Union

becomes aware of a violation of personal data, should without delay, if possible, within 72 hours of acquired knowledge of the event, disclose the violation of personal data to the competent supervisory authority, unless o controller can prove, according to the principle of accountability, that the violation of personal data is not likely to cause danger to the rights and freedoms of individuals. If such a notification can not be achieved within 72 hours, The notification must be accompanied by justification stating the reasons for the delay and the information can be gradually supplied without undue delay.

  1. (86) The controller must immediately notify the data subject of violation of personal data, when the violation of personal data is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of the individual, in order to be allowed to take the necessary precautions. The notice should describe the nature of the violation of personal data and recommendations to the individual concerned to mitigate potential adverse effects. These are the data subjects should be made as soon as possible, in close cooperation with the supervisory authority, respecting guidance provided by it or other relevant authorities, such as law enforcement authorities. For example, the need to mitigate an imminent risk of loss would require immediate notice to data subjects, and the need to implement appropriate measures against continuing or similar data breaches of personal nature may justify a longer notice.
  2. (87) It should be ascertained whether they have implemented all appropriate measures technological protection and organizational measures for the immediate identification of any personal data breach and the immediate notification of the supervisory authority and the data subject. It should be noted that the disclosure was made without undue delay, taking into account in particular the nature and gravity of the violation of personal data, and the consequences and adverse effects for the data subject. The notification may lead to intervention by the supervisory authority, in accordance with the tasks and powers defined in this Regulation.
  3. (88) In setting detailed rules concerning the format and procedures applicable to the notification of personal data breaches, They should take due account of the circumstances of such breach, including whether personal data protected by appropriate technical protection measures, effectively limiting the likelihood of identity fraud or other forms of abuse. Furthermore, these rules and procedures should take into account the legitimate interests of law enforcement authorities, where early disclosure could unnecessarily impede the investigation of the circumstances of a breach of personal data.
  4. (89) Directive 95/46 / EC provided for a general obligation to disclose the personal data to the supervisory authorities. Although this obligation entails administrative and financial burdens, It did not help in all cases to improve the protection of personal data. Therefore, general obligations such disclosure, undifferentiated, They should be abolished and replaced with effective procedures and mechanisms that focus on those types of processing operations that may result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals because of the nature, the scope, the context and their objectives. These kinds of processing operations may be those, Especially, including the use of new technologies or new type is when it has previously carried out an impact assessment as regards the protection of data from the controller or when they are necessary because of the time elapsed from the initial processing.
  5. (90) In these cases, the controller, before treatment, should carry out an impact assessment regarding data protection, to assess the particular probability and severity of high risk, taking into account the nature, extent, context and purpose of the processing and risk sources. This impact assessment should include, Especially, the planned measures, safeguards and mechanisms that mitigate this risk, ensuring the protection of personal data and demonstrate compliance with this Regulation.
  6. (91) This will be particularly true for large scale processing operations aimed at processing a significant amount of personal data at regional, national or supranational level, which could affect a large number of data subjects and which is likely to result in high risk, for example because of their sensitivity, when according to the existing technological knowledge levels used a new technology widely, and other processing operations which result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, particularly where such acts impede the exercise of data subjects' rights. It should also be carried out an impact assessment regarding data protection when personal data are processed in coming to decisions relating to specific individuals following a systematic and extensive evaluation of personal aspects relating to individuals based training

 

Official Journal of the European Union

profiles based on those data, or after the processing of specific categories of personal data, biometric data or data relating to offenses and criminal convictions or related security measures. impact assessment on data protection is also needed for monitoring publicly accessible areas on a large scale, especially when used for optoelectronic devices or any other work whenever the competent authority considers that the processing may result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, in particular because it prevents data subjects to exercise any right or use a service or contract or because systematically carried out on a large scale. The processing of personal data should not be considered to be major, if the processing relates to personal data of patients and doctors as private clients, other professional healthcare or lawyer. In such cases, the impact assessment of data protection should not be mandatory.

There are cases where it may be sensible and economic subject of an impact assessment regarding data protection exceeding a single project, for example where public authorities or bodies intend to establish a common application or processing platform or if more controllers plan to introduce a common application or processing environment to an industrial sector or industry or for a widely used horizontal activity.

Under the version of the legislation of a Member State underlying the performance of the duties of a public authority or public body, which regulates the act or series of processing operations, Member States may deem it necessary to carry out this assessment before treatment activities.

If the impact assessment relating to the protection of the data suggests that treatment, without safeguards, security measures and mechanisms to mitigate the risk, would result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals and the controller is of the opinion that the risk can not be mitigated by reasonable measures as regards the available technology and the cost of implementation, should be consulted by the supervisory authority before the start of the processing activities. Such high risk is likely to occur from certain processing and a certain degree of processing and frequency, so even damage or interference with the rights and freedoms of the individual. The supervisory authority should respond to the request for consultation within a given period. However, The lack of reaction of the supervisory authority within the said time limit should not affect any intervention of the supervisory authority, in accordance with the tasks and powers defined in this Regulation, including the prohibition of processing operations of power. As part of this consultation process, may be submitted to the supervisory authority the result of the impact assessment on data protection conducted in connection with the issue processing, in particular the measures provided to mitigate the risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

L 119/22 (115)

Official Journal of the European Union 4.5.2016

Some third countries enact laws, regulations and other legal instruments which purport to directly regulate the processing activities of natural and legal persons under the jurisdiction of Member States. This may include court decisions or decisions of administrative authorities in third countries that require a controller or processor to transfer or disclose personal data which are not based on international agreement, eg Convention on Mutual Assistance in force between the country concerned and the Union or a Member State requesting. The extraterritorial application of these laws, regulations and other legal acts may violate international law and impede the attainment of the protection of individuals guaranteed in the Union by this Regulation. Transfers should only be allowed if the conditions of this Regulation to transfers to third countries. This can happen, including, if the disclosure is necessary for an important ground of public interest which is recognized in Union law or Member State in which the controller is subject.

The transboundary movement of personal data outside the EU possibly putting at greater risk the ability of individuals to exercise data protection rights in particular to protect tefontai against unauthorized use or disclosure of such information. At the same time, the supervisory authorities may find that they are unable to act on complaints or to conduct investigations into activities outside their borders. Their efforts to work together in a cross-border context may also be hampered by insufficient preventive or remedial powers, of contradictory legal regimes and practical obstacles, such as the lack of resources. Therefore, there is a need to promote closer cooperation between data protection supervisory authorities, to make it easier to exchange information and carry out investigations with their international counterparts. To develop international cooperation mechanisms to facilitate and provide international mutual assistance in the enforcement of data protection legislation, The Commission and supervisory authorities should exchange information and cooperate in activities related to the exercise of their powers by the competent authorities of third countries, on the basis of reciprocity and in accordance with this Regulation·

The establishment of supervisory authorities in Member States, authorized to carry out their duties and exercise their powers in full independence, It is an essential component of the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data. Member States should be able to establish more supervisors, depending on the constitutional, organizational and administrative structure.

The independence of the supervisory authorities should not imply that the supervisory authorities can not be subject to inspection or monitoring mechanisms in terms of their financial expenses or judicial review.

Where a Member State introduces more supervisors, should establish by law mechanisms, to ensure the effective participation of those supervisory authorities in the consistency mechanism. The Member State should designate, Especially, the supervisory authority which is the single contact point for the effective participation of those authorities in the mechanism, to ensure rapid and smooth cooperation with other supervisory authorities, the Data Protection Council and Commission.

In each supervisor financial and human resources should be provided, facilities and infrastructure that are essential to the effective performance of its functions, including those relating to mutual assistance and cooperation with other supervisory authorities throughout the Union. Each supervisor should have separate, public annual budget, which can be part of the overall state or national budget.

To ensure the independence of supervisors, the member or members should act with integrity, to refrain from any action incompatible with their duties and, during their term of office, They should not engage in any incompatible occupation, profitable or not. The supervisory authority must have its own staff, selected by the supervisory authority or by an independent body set up under the law of a Member State, and be under the exclusive direction of the member or members of the supervisory authority.

Each supervisor will be responsible, in the Member State responsible, to exercise the powers and perform the functions assigned in accordance with this Regulation. This should cover in particular the treatment in the activities of an establishment of the controller or the processor in the territory of their own Member State, the processing of personal data carried out by public authorities or private bodies acting in the public interest, processing that affects the underlying data in the territory or processing carried out by

controller or processor is not established in the Union, when targeted data subjects residing in its territory. This should include addressing complaints submitted by the data subject, Investigations on the implementation of this Regulation and promoting public awareness of the dangers, the rules, guarantees and rights related to the processing of personal data.

  1. (123) The supervisory authorities should monitor the application of the provisions of this Regulation and to contribute to a consistent application across the Union, order to protect individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data and to facilitate the free movement of personal data within the internal market. For this purpose, supervisors should cooperate with each other and with the Commission, without requiring an agreement between the Member States for mutual assistance or for such cooperation.
  2. (124) Όταν η επεξεργασία δεδομένων προσωπικού χαρακτήρα πραγματοποιείται στο πλαίσιο των δραστηριοτήτων μιας εγκατάστασης ενός υπευθύνου επεξεργασίας ή εκτελούντος την επεξεργασία στην Ένωση και ο υπεύθυνος επεξεργασίας ή ο εκτελών την επεξεργασία είναι εγκατεστημένος σε περισσότερα κράτη μέλη ή όταν η επεξεργασία που πραγματο­ ποιείται στο πλαίσιο των δραστηριοτήτων της μόνης εγκατάστασης υπευθύνου επεξεργασίας ή εκτελούντος την επεξεργασία στην Ένωση επηρεάζει ουσιωδώς ή είναι πιθανόν να επηρεάσει ουσιωδώς υποκείμενα των δεδομένων σε περισσότερα του ενός κράτη μέλη, as head authority acts as supervisor for the main establishment of the controller or the processor or the only installation of the controller or the processor. It should cooperate with other authorities concerned, because the controller or processor has an establishment in the territory of the Member State, because data subjects residing in their territory materially affected or because the complaint has been lodged. Also, when a data subject who does not reside in that Member State submits a complaint, the supervisory authority to which an application should also be concerned supervisor.

In such cases, The supervisory authority must inform thereof the chief supervisory authority without delay. Once updated, the chief supervisor should decide whether to deal with the case in accordance with the arrangement on cooperation between the chief supervisor and the other supervisory authorities ("One-stop mechanism '), or whether it should deal with the case at the local level the supervisory authority informed. When deciding whether to hear the case, the chief supervisor should take into account whether there is a facility of the controller or the processor in the Member State of the supervisory authority informed, to ensure efficient enforcement of the decision against the controller or the processor. When the

(145) For procedures within the controller or processor, the applicant should be able to choose to bring proceedings before the courts of the Member State where the controller or the processor has an establishment or in the Member State of residence of the data subject, unless the controller is a public authority of a Member State, acting in the exercise of public powers.
  2. (146) Any damage sustained by a person as a result of processing in breach of this Regulation should be compensated by the controller or the processor. The controller or the processor should be exempt from liability for damages if they can show that they bear no responsibility for damage.

ensuring compliance with the obligations arising from this Regulation and to prevent or mitigate the effects of the infringement. If the fines imposed on an undertaking, a business should mean undertaking in accordance with Articles 101 and 102 TFEU ​​for these purposes. If the fines imposed on persons who are not undertakings, the supervisor should take into account the general level of income in the Member State, and the economic situation of the person, when considering the appropriate amount of the fine. The consistency mechanism may also be used to promote a consistent enforcement of administrative fines. It should be up to Member States to decide whether and to what extent fines to public authorities may be imposed. The imposition of an administrative fine or warning does not affect the application of other powers of supervisory authorities or other sanctions under this Regulation.

In the legal systems of Denmark and Estonia are not provided for fines as defined in this Regulation. The rules relating to administrative fines can be applied so as to Denmark the fine imposed by the competent national courts as a criminal penalty in Estonia and the fine imposed by the supervisory authority in proceedings for misdemeanors, provided that such application of the rules in those Member States having equivalent effect to fines imposed by the supervisory authorities. Hence, the competent national courts must take into account the recommendation of the supervisory authority from which the fine. in any case, fines imposed should be effective, proportionate and dissuasive.

This should be particularly true with regard to the processing of personal data in the audiovisual field and in news archives and press libraries. Therefore, Member States should adopt legislative measures to provide for the necessary exceptions and derogations for balancing these fundamental rights. Member States should introduce such exceptions and derogations on the general principles, the rights of the data subject, the controller and the processor, the transfer of personal data to third countries or international organizations, independent supervisory authorities, cooperation and coherence and specific data processing situations. Where such exemptions or exceptions differ from one Member State to another, should apply the law of the Member State in which the controller is subject. To reflect the importance of the right of freedom of expression in every democratic society, necessary be interpreted broadly the concepts relating to the said freedom, such as journalism.

This regulation allows to take into account the principle of public access to official documents in the application of this Regulation. The public access to official documents can be considered as a public interest. Personal data in documents held by a public authority or a public body should be disclosed publicly by that authority or body if disclosure provided by Union law or Member State law to which the public authority is subject or the public body. Such laws must reconcile public access to official documents and the re-use of public sector information with the right of personal data protection and may, consequently, provide the necessary reconciliation with the right to protection of personal data under this Regulation. The reference to public authorities and bodies should in this case include all authorities or other entities covered by the law of a Member State concerning public access to documents. Directive 2003/98 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (1) not prejudice or affect

  2. (156) The processing of personal data for archival purposes in the public interest, historical or scientific research or statistical purposes should be subject to appropriate safeguards for the rights and freedoms of the data subject in accordance with this Regulation. Those safeguards should ensure that the technical and organizational measures that guarantee established, particularly, the principle of data minimization. The further processing of personal data for archival purposes in the public interest, historical or scientific research or statistical purposes occurs when the controller has assessed whether it is possible to meet these objectives through data which do not permit or no longer allow identification of data subjects, provided that there are adequate safeguards (such as, for example, the psefdonymopoiisi data). Member States should provide for appropriate safeguards on the processing of personal data for archival purposes in the public interest, purposes of scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. It should allow Member States to provide, under certain circumstances and with appropriate guarantees for data subjects, requirements and exceptions regarding information requirements and the rights of correction and deletion, the right to be forgotten, may limit processing,the right to data portability and the right to object to the processing of personal data for archival purposes in the public interest, purposes of scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. Such conditions and guarantees may involve special procedures, that data subjects can exercise such rights, where appropriate for the purposes pursued by this treatment, along with technical and organizational measures designed to minimize the processing of personal data in accordance with the principles of proportionality and necessity. The processing of personal data for scientifically purposes must also comply with other relevant laws, as for clinical trials.
  3. (157) Combining information from registers, researchers can gain new knowledge of great importance in terms prevalent pathologies such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and depression. Based on records, research results can be enhanced, since they rely on a wider population base. In the social sciences, research based on registers gives researchers the opportunity to acquire essential knowledge for long-term correlation of certain social situations, such as unemployment and education with other living conditions. The research results obtained through registers provide reliable and quality knowledge which can form the basis for developing and implementing policy based on knowledge, to improve the quality of life of some people and improve the effectiveness of social services. With the aim of scientific research, personal data may be processed for purposes of scientific research, under appropriate conditions and safeguards laid down in Union law or Member State law.
  4. (158) Where personal data are processed for archival purposes, this Regulation should also apply to such processing, bearing in mind that this regulation should not apply to deceased.
