Exercising the right of access to personal data by receiving copies of documents, containing other personal data

On 17 July 2013, the Commission for Personal Data Protection has expressed opinion on exercising the right of access to personal data by receiving copies of documents, containing personal data. In the opinion is analyzed the individual’s right of access to data related to him/her, as well as, the existing restrictions in connection with the application of this right. The nature of the information, which should be submitted and the procedure, regulating the relevant personal data controller obligation, is specified. The difference between the definitions “copy of personal data” and “copy of documents” is emphasized. In its opinion CPDP has assumed that the right of access to personal data under Art. 26, para.1 in connection with Art. 28, para.1 of the Law for Protection of Personal Data does not include the receiving of copies of documents, created and/or stored by the personal data controller.
