Home office and protection of personal data

Home office and protection of personal data

Employees handling with personal data can work from home. Handling with personal data does not mean automatically the impossibility to provide home office to the employees. However, the employer must take appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent the breach of personal data. The employer may determine the technical means used by the employee and, to a certain extent, to monitor the use of such means. The employer should also issue guidelines as to how the home-based employee should use the technique to avoid the data breach.

Publishing photos of offenders on Facebook

Do you have a CCTV in your store; did you shoot a thief and do you want to post the photos on Facebook or on another social network? Don’t do it. Otherwise, you can be fined by the Czech Data Protection Authority. The recordings contain personal data of offenders and by publishing them on Facebook you process them without a legal ground. You are wondering if you can protect your premises with the CCTV in the Czech Republic at all. The answer is yes, but you must pass on the recordings to the police, not to publish them on the Internet.
