GDPR-Legislation-in-Czech-Republic.jpgAs a member state of the European Union (EU), Czech Republic had to amend its national legislation on the protection of data, following the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at a EU level. The main rule of law in Czech Republic regarding this matter was the Act No. 101/2001 on the Protection of Personal Data, which will be replaced by the new Data Processing Act Proposal, a legal document approved by the local government and currently under discussions in the Czech Parliament.
Our team of specialists in company registration in Czech Republic can assist local businesses with advice on this legislation and investors must know that the Act No. 101/2001 on the Protection of Personal Data is still in force, in the areas of the law that are not regulated by the General Data Protection Regulation.  

What are the main changes brought by the GDPR law in Czech Republic? 

The GDPR law brough a number of changes in the understanding of personal and sensitive data, the manner in which Czech companies and organizations may collect such information, as well as the notion of consent that has to be offered by any natural person in order to collect his or her personal data. The proposal on the new legislation related to the protection of data in Czech Republic takes into consideration the following:
  • entities that are in breach of the GDPR law can receive a fine of up to CZK 10 million;
  • consent can be offered when using an online website at the age of 13 years old (without the need of a legal guardian) - a regulation which is also available in the Scandinavian countries;
  • companies have to establish confidentiality requirements and set up security measures for the protection of private data;
  • any entity that is considered a public entity has to appoint a data protection officer
