GI-DEC-DS-130/04


In the course of the proceedings conducted in the case instituted as a result of a complaint filed by Mr A about groundless - in the Complainant`s opinion - transfer of his data to vindication company K Co. Ltd. Co. by Operator Co. Ltd., with which the Complainant concluded a subscription contract, the Inspector General for the Protection of Personal Data stated that the contract of authorisation to transfer these data, referred to in Art. 31 of the Act on the Protection of Personal Data, concluded between these subjects was a ground for the transfer. The subject of this contract is the vindication of dues by virtue of unpaid amounts resulting from subscription contracts concluded between television operator and subscribers. Operator Co. Ltd. stated that Mr A had not paid this amount and transferred the data to K Co. Ltd. for vindication, emphasising that the purpose of the transfer of these data is the vindication of claims from the conducted economic activity. The Inspector General for the Protection of Personal Data established that K Co. Ltd. was processing personal data exclusively in the scope and for the purpose indicated in the contract of authorisation to data processing.

Considering the above, the Inspector General for the Protection of Personal Data recognised that the activities undertaken by Operator Co. Ltd., if it justifies that they are aimed at the vindication of claims by virtue of the conducted economic activity, are justified in the legal provisions, and refused to consider the request of Mr X.
