Technical log data on the website and telecommunications connections
Technical log data is collected on the use of the website and the telecommunications connections used to access it. This data is necessary for the provision of the online service and for ensuring information security. The log data includes information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as their IP address and timestamp. This log data is used only to enable the provision of the service via the telecommunications network and to investigate any disruptions and information security incidents.
The processing of personal data in this context is necessary in order for the Ministry of Justice to comply with its legal obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation.
Responsibilities of joint controllers
The website of the Ministry of Justice operates on the Government's joint publication platform. For this reason, the Ministry of Justice and the Prime Minister's Office are joint controllers for the processing of personal data on the website of the Ministry of Justice.
The Ministry of Justice is responsible for the contents of its website, and the Ministry utilises the website’s visitor tracking in the performance of its tasks.
The Prime Minister's Office is responsible for:
- ensuring that the technical means have a legal basis for processing personal data in accordance with the data protection legislation
- ensuring an appropriate level of security, for example through pseudonymisation of personal data and measures to guarantee the confidentiality of services. Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information.
- ensuring that contracts with processors have been concluded in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation
- ensuring compliance with data protection principles, such as data minimisation and the necessity requirement
- carrying out data protection impact assessments.
Website visitors may exercise their data protection rights equally in relation to both joint controllers. Contact details related to data protection at the Ministry of Justice and further information on the processing of personal data are available on the Data protection page. The corresponding information concerning the Prime Minister's Office is available on its website under Data Protection.
