WHAT IS THE DATA STATE INSPECTORATE?
The Data State Inspectorate was established on 2 January 2001. As of February 27, 2020, the Data State Inspectorate is led by Director Jekaterina Macuka.
The Data State Inspectorate supervises the protection of personal data.
WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA?
Personal data are not only the given name, surname, date of birth, personal identity number, address of place of residence and photograph of the person, but also such data that allow the identification or identification of a particular person (for example, the car number may also be personal data).
If a person discovers that information containing their personal data has been published on the internet without their consent, they are required to report such a breach to the Data State Inspectorate. Similarly, if an institution, company, or organization fails to provide an individual with information about themselves, which is within the possession of that institution or company, the Data State Inspectorate can assist the individual in preventing this violation and pursuing legal action against the responsible party.
The Data State Inspectorate has the authority to impose penalties on both legal entities and natural persons found guilty of violating personal data protection regulations. Decisions made by the Data State Inspectorate can be appealed in court
