What is included in the concept of “personal data”?

Personal data is information or a collection of information about an individual that can be identified or defined according to specific characteristics. This term, spelled out in legislation, provides the basis for protecting the privacy and confidentiality of citizens. Personal data becomes confidential if this is established by relevant legislation.

Confidential information may include:

  • health data;
  • information about religious beliefs;
  • residential address information;
  • information about the date and place of birth;
  • information about events that took place in personal, everyday, professional and other areas of life;
  • other incidents established by law.

Important! This information is confidential and cannot be disclosed without the prior consent of the person, except as required by law, and only in the interests of ensuring economic, national security or protecting human rights.

What responsibility is provided for the disclosure of personal data?

For violation of legislation in the field of personal data protection, a person may be brought to administrative and criminal liability.

Criminal liability arises in case of violation of the privacy of a person, in particular for the illegal collection, storage, use, destruction or distribution of confidential information about a person or illegal modification of such information and may be punished by:

  1. imposition of a fine from 500 to 1000 nm;
