POLISH SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY: the Central Statistical Office will recollect less data of other water and sewage companies

POLISH SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY: the Central Statistical Office will recollect less data of other water and sewage companies

The GUS, keeping in mind doubts of the President of the Personal Data Protection Office, in 2022, during statistical researches, will not obtain those data of recipients of services of water and sewage supply, as: their names and surnames, PESEL numbers, residence addresses, correspondence addresses, email addresses or phone numbers.

This declaration has been presented during the consent conference on the draft regulation of the Ministry Council on the program of statistic detections of official statistics for 2022.

Previously, the President of the Personal Data Protection Office, in ruling on the draft of this regulation, has supported that the legislations disposals of the Law of the7th June 2021 on the water and sewage supply do not imply that a water and sewage company has the right to obtain PESEL numbers, phone numbers and email addresses by its clients.

For this reason, the assumption by the Central Statistical Office (GUS) to obtain those data by water and sewage companies for the statistical investigations in 2022 creates the risk that these companies will ask the above mentioned data at the time of the conclusion of client’s contracts, by asserting their obligation to provide these data to the Central Statistical Office.

The President of the Personal Data Protection Office has underlined that for the development of tasks of another administrator (in this case the Central Statistical Office), the administrator who provides data (in this case the water and sewage company) will be obliged to recollect inadequate personal data in order to reach those purposes and transfer them to another administrator.

Therefore, in its opinion to the aforementioned draft regulation of the Council of Ministers, the Supervisory Body indicated that in order to comply with the principles of lawfulness, data minimization and limitation of the purposes referred to in article 5 GDPR, in addition to respecting the right to the protection of personal data of recipients of water supply and sewerage services, the Central Office of Statistics should waive the acquisition of the aforementioned data from water and sewerage companies

The President of the Office for the Protection of Personal Data (UODO) welcomed the fact that in the new version of the draft regulation of the Council of Ministers, presented at the consensus conference of 28th May 2021, the Central Statistical Office (GUS) abstained from obtaining such data from recipients of water supply and sewerage services, such as: their names and surnames, PESEL numbers, residence addresses, correspondence addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers.
