Control plan of the Office for Personal Data Protection for 2023

In the past year, the Office recorded an increase of complaints about the sending of commercial communications by SMS. Therefore, this year the Office will carry out an inspection of companies operating in the field of dissemination of commercial communications by this means, the subject of the inspection being an examination of whether the communications in question are in the form and requirements required by law.

Last but not least, the Office will deal with complaints from natural persons regarding the setting of the period of retention of personal data, the fulfilment of information obligations towards these persons, etc.

So far this year, the Office has imposed fines for GDPR violations totalling CZK 10 million. However, it can be expected that after almost 5 years since the GDPR came into force, controls will be tightened, and fines will increase.
