Processing Data chapter 6 cy

National law – CY – Legal system – module 6

The operations that include the recording, preservation, collection, alteration, storage, organization, transmission, use, dissemination and any form of the disposal, combination or connection, destruction, blocking and erasure of the data is actually some form of data processing. The business activities that are conducted with the help of automatic means that are in the same description are affected mostly by legislation of the protection of personal data.

Parties involved in processing personal data

The data subjects are first that are concerned with the personal data. It is all of us that must learn at what time should we share data and when not to share the data. The next party is the data controller that is supposed to process and collect the data from the different categories of the data subjects, customers, applicants and employees etc. In some cases, the controller has no knowledge or the equipment that is needed for conducting the processing that is mostly assigned to a processor that is mainly the one who acts properly as the controller provides the written instructions.

Conditions of processing personal data

The law has allowed the processing of the personal data if the permission through personal consent is given. It is also permitted in the case the processing is required by compliance of the legal sort of obligations or in case of the contract that we are party in, or in case of the protection of the different personal interests that are vital, if there are legitimate interests of the controller or some third party, in some conditions if the interests are overriding our different rights, fundamental freedom or the interests. The sensitive data as per the Law provides the proper methods that are necessary for protecting the sensitive data and its processing is actually prohibited.

Condition exemptions

There are actually some of the exemptions that are important for the processing of the different sensitive data, the example is that in case when the data subject is actually giving explicit sort of consent or in the fulfilment of the different employment sector related obligations, protection of the different vital sort of interests, in context of organizational activities or the union of the data subject is actually a processing member that is important for relating data that is made public and further in the case of the processing by the bound of professional rules for the confidentiality of the grounds or the public or national security, or in cases of statistical research or journalistic sort of purposes and finally scientific purposes.

The particular law is actually serving two important purposes, the first one is to protect the individuals and the next one is to properly facilitate the proper movement of the personal data in the European Union. These exemptions are present for properly serving these purposes so it is not possible to easily circumvent the law.
