Adaption Act and changes in GDPR

Ivana Brancuzká

Act No. 110/2019 Coll., On the Processing of Personal Data, entered into force on April 24, 2019. The newly adopted Personal Data Processing Act inter alia repeals the Act of 2000. This law makes use of some of the privileges to determine the different treatment of personal data processing in selected cases.

Adaptation Act:

  • clarifies the provisions of the GDPR
  • develops the provisions of the GDPR
  • gives the possibility to deviate from GDPR
  • provides for exceptions…

…for example, an exemption from the obligation to assess the impact of personal data processing for a particular activity provided that the controller is required to do so by law. Thus, the employer is not obliged to assess the impact of the processing of personal data in the area of payroll processing of its employees.

It is also interesting, in particular, to set the age limit of 15 years for granting consent to the processing of personal data in connection with the offer of information society services, it will suffice to disclose information obligations via the website. The Adaptation Act also addresses the area of scientific or historical research and also deals with the processing of personal data for journalistic purposes or for academic and artistic purposes.
