The DPA issued an opinion on making the council meetings open to public. The DPA suggested to determine the rules regarding the openness of meetings and in the case of dealing with personal data, close the specific meeting (partially) to the public, or provide an appropriate legal basis.

English Summary[edit | edit source]

Facts[edit | edit source]

According to the complainant, the draft statute of the council institution would state that its sessions are not public, but the council can open them. In his view, the meetings are "per se" closed to the public.

Dispute[edit | edit source]

What are the legal bases for opening the council meetings to the public?

Holding[edit | edit source]

According to the DPA, the public institution can determine in its statute when it will open or close the meeting or part of the meeting to the public. The public session is not a requirement that would be determined by a special law for public institutions and does not fall within the scope of the right of access to public information provided by the ZDIJZ.

The DPA claimed that in cases where personal data is discussed at the council's meetings, one of the legal bases for the processing of personal data from Article 6(1) GDPR must be provided.

The DPA suggested to determine the rules regarding the openness of meetings and in the case of dealing with personal data, close the specific meeting (partially) to the public, or provide an appropriate legal basis. The DPA pointed out that consent in the public sector can be given in accordance with the first paragraph of Article 9 of ZVOP-1 (which is still used to a certain extent until the adoption of ZVOP-2) when the law stipulates that certain personal data are processed only based on the personal consent of the individual. The DPA has repeatedly emphasized in the past that the consent of an individual can be given without prior definition in the law only if it is not a matter of performing public tasks.

The draft statute of the public institution would state that the sessions are not public, but that the council can open them to the public. In your opinion, the meetings of the councils are "per se" closed to the public.

According to the IP, the public session is not a requirement that would be determined by a special law for public institutions and does not fall within the scope of the right of access to public information provided by the ZDIJZ. However, the above does not mean that the applicant does not have the right to access any documentation that was discussed at the session and is information of a public nature, taking into account the exceptions provided by the ZDIJZ.</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> Exceptions to free access to the requested information are defined in Article 6 of the ZDIJZ, namely, among other things, the applicant is denied access to the requested information if the request relates to <strong>personal data</strong> , the disclosure of which would violate personal data protection in accordance with the law governing protection. personal data. In accordance with our competencies, we therefore provide you with our non-binding opinion on the protection of personal data at a meeting of the institution.</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> As we have pointed out in the opinions quoted above, in cases where personal data is discussed at the institute's meetings, one of the legal bases for the processing of personal data provided for in the General Regulation must be provided. In the public sector, in accordance with the first paragraph of Article 6 of the General Regulation, personal data may be processed in the following cases:</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> (a) the data subject has <strong>consented</strong> to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specified purposes;</p><p class="bodytext"> (b) processing is necessary for the <strong>performance of a contract</strong> to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of measures at the request of such a data subject before the conclusion of the contract;</p><p class="bodytext"> (c) the processing is necessary to <strong>fulfill a legal obligation</strong> applicable to the controller;</p><p class="bodytext"> (d) processing is necessary for the <strong>protection of the vital interests of the</strong> data subject or of other natural persons;</p><p class="bodytext"> (e) the processing is necessary for the <strong>performance of a task in the public interest</strong> or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the controller.</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> Based on the above, we suggest that you determine the rules regarding the publicity of sessions and in the case of dealing with personal data at sessions of a public institution, close the specific session (in part) to the public, or provide an appropriate legal basis as above. We would like to point out that consent in the public sector may be given in accordance with the first paragraph of Article 9 of ZVOP-1 (which is still applicable to a certain extent until the adoption of ZVOP-2) when the law stipulates that certain personal data are processed only based on the personal consent of the individual. The IP has repeatedly emphasized in the past that the consent of an individual can be given without prior definition in the law only if it is not a matter of performing public tasks.</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> Hoping that our instructions will help you, we warmly welcome you.</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> Mojca Prelesnik, B.Sc.</p><p class="bodytext"> Information Commissioner</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> Prepared by:</p><p class="bodytext"> Barbara Pirš, B.Sc.</p><p class="bodytext"> Adviser to the Commissioner for Prevention</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"></p></div><div> <a href="javascript:history.back();">Back</a> </div><!--  Plugin inserted: [end] --></div><!--  CONTENT ELEMENT, uid:2320/list [end] --><!--TYPO3SEARCH_end--></article></div></div><footer><div class="row"><address class="c3"> <strong class="title">ABOUT US</strong><p class="bodytext"> <strong>Information Commissioner</strong></p><p class="bodytext"> <strong>Dunajska cesta 22</strong></p><p class="bodytext"> <strong>1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia</strong></p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> <a href="https://www.ip-rs.si/fileadmin/user_upload/png/zemljevid_IPRS.PNG" title="Initiates file download">Map</a> (source: najdi.si)</p><p class="bodytext"> T: 01 230 97 30<br /> F: 01 230 97 78</p><p class="bodytext"> E-mail: <a href="javascript:linkTo_UnCryptMailto('iwehpk6cl:elWel9no:oe');">gp.ip (at) ip-rs.si</a><br /> Reporting violations: <a href="https://www.ip-rs.si/zakonodaja/reforma-evropskega-zakonodajnega-okvira-za-varstvo-osebnih-podatkov/kljucna-podrocja-uredbe/prijava-krsitev/" target="_blank">instructions and form</a></p></address><div class="c3"> <strong class="title">OFFICE HOURS</strong><p class="bodytext"> <strong>MON - FRI</strong></p><p class="bodytext"> 10.00 - 12.00 and 14.00 - 15.00</p><p class="bodytext"></p><p class="bodytext"> A personal visit is only possible with prior notice to the above e-mail address or telephone number.</p></div><div class="c3 h1"> <strong class="title">LINKS</strong><!--  CONTENT ELEMENT, uid:1350/html [begin] --><div id="c1350" class="csc-frame csc-frame-default"><!--  Raw HTML content: [begin] --><p> <a href="https://www.ip-rs.si/o-pooblascencu/informacije-javnega-znacaja/">Public information</a></p><p> <a href="https://www.ip-rs.si/publikacije/prirocniki-in-smernice/" title="In the guidelines, personal file managers can find answers to the most frequently asked questions in each area of personal data protection.
