Change to Data Protection Officer declaration

Purpose of processing

The purpose of processing the personal data of Data Protection Officers is to enable communication between the supervisory authority and the Data Protection Officers of controllers and processors. The Data Protection Officer serves as the point of contact with the supervisory authorities in questions related to the processing of personal data.

The personal data of Data Protection Officers can also be processed in the course of the Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman's supervisory duties, such as to determine whether all organisations obligated by the GDPR or special legislation to designate a Data Protection Officer have done so.

The data of Data Protection Officers is also used for the planning and implementation of our office's activities, and statistics can be generated from the data. The contact details submitted to us are used for official communications.
