Public databases & Registers

Public databases and registers are owned by public institutions and administered on behalf of the State. The inclusion of your personal data in these databases is often compulsory and dictated by law, unlike private databases. The storage and use of personal data should be lawful in order not to violate your right to private life.

Has my personal data been processed lawfully?

To evaluate whether your data has been processed lawfully and whether your privacy has been sufficiently respected, see the questions below. If, in your situation, you answer negatively to one of these questions, your privacy may have been violated. In such a case, you have the right to complain. Read more about how to complain.
