3.1. Personal data protection

The right to protection of personal data is a fundamental right foreseen in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The Agency is therefore highly committed to ensuring the protection of the personal data of the individuals it works with, regardless of whether they are website users, stakeholders, individuals, members of public, staff members or job applicants. The Agency will process any personal data it collects in line with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data.

Personal data shall only be processed for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest on the basis of EU law or in the legitimate exercise of an official authority vested in the Agency. Alternatively, processing is lawful if it forms part of a legal or contractual obligation or when the individual concerned has given their unambiguous consent.

As a general rule, anyone has the right to be informed about the processing of their personal data, while they will also have the right to access that information at any time and to rectify it when it is inaccurate or incomplete.

Like all other EU institutions, bodies or agencies, CEPOL has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to ensure the application of the principles of personal data protection in the Agency. The DPO provides an independent advisory function. All processing operations of personal data shall be duly notified to CEPOL's Data Protection Officer and if necessary to the European Data Protection Supervisor.

All questions or complaints concerning the processing of your personal data can be addressed to the Agency's Data Protection Officer. The data subjects shall have right of recourse at any time to the European Data Protection Supervisor.

The Agency is committed to user privacy. You can browse the CEPOL website without giving away any personal information. However, in some cases, personal details are required in order for us to be able to provide personal e-services, for instance helpdesk support, public consultations or software applications.

In this respect:

  • For each specific e-service, the Agency determines the purposes and methods of the processing of personal data and ensures conformity of the specific e-service with the privacy policy;
  • The CEPOL Data Protection Officer monitors compliance with the data protection Regulation;
  • As with all EU Institutions and Agencies, the European Data Protection Supervisor also acts for CEPOL as an independent supervisory authority with regard to the protection of personal data.
