Defendant: Ministerstvo zdravotnictví

Questions referred


Does the disclosure of the first name, surname, signature and contact information of a natural person as the director or responsible representative of a legal person, made exclusively for the purpose of identification of the (person authorised to represent a certain) legal person still constitute processing of ‘personal data’ of the natural person concerned, pursuant to Article 4, point (1), GDPR, (1) and thus fall within the scope of GDPR?


Can national law, including settled case-law, render the application by an administrative authority of a directly applicable EU regulation, namely Article 6(1)(c) or (e) GDPR, conditional on compliance with other conditions that do not follow from the text of the regulation itself but which, nevertheless, essentially extend the level of protection of personal data subjects, namely the obligation of a public authority to inform the data subject in advance of the submission of a request for the provision of his or her personal data to a third party?

(1)  Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (OJ 2016 L 119, p. 1).
