How to complain about legal regulation that does not sufficiently protect your right to private life?

Legal provisions have to be sufficiently clear and detailed to give you an adequate indication as to the circumstances and the conditions under which public authorities can interfere with your right to private life, in the course of investigative and operational actions. In addition, an effective mechanism for how to complain about a potential abuse or misuse of your data has to be stipulated in law. 

If you believe that the relevant legal provisions in the Code of Criminal Procedure and in the Security Authorities are not sufficiently clear and precise, or do not guarantee effective safeguards against potential abuses and misuses, and thus your right to private life has been violated, you can submit an application to the Chancellor of Justice of the Republic of Estonia.
