The office´s representative Mr Jiří Žůrek encouraged the audience to be transparent, correct and consequent towards their customers in matters of personal data. Such approach can reduce the volume of complaints potentially lodged with the office.
Data controllers should not panic even in case of an investigation into their company. This does not automatically entail an imposition of a fine. The office has, pursuant the GDPR, many other remedial measures at hand. It is, among others, a warning or an order to accommodate the data subject´s request.
It is not in the office´s interest to impose as much as possible sanctions, but to ensure rectification and to strengthen awareness about personal data protection.
The office´s representatives intend to bring about this message also at the next seminars in other Czech county towns.
