The Consent as a Legal Ground for Personal Data Processing

Author:Assoc. Prof. Martin Zahariev, PhD

Subject:ICT Law. Privacy and Data Protection

Published at:Academic Publishing House "Za bukvite - O Pismeneh"

Edition:Information Literacy and Intellectual Property: Modern Scientific and Practical Challenges

According to Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), consent is one of the possible legal grounds for personal data processing. Consent is placed first among the conditions for the processing of personal data. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the nature of consent as a ground for the processing of personal data. The study traces back the emergence of consent as a basis for processing from historical perspective – its inclusion in national data protection acts and acts of EU law. Examined are the questions: What specifics does consent reveal and what requirements should be fulfilled in order for consent to be valid under GDPR? Does consent enjoy any hierarchical supremacy over other legal grounds for personal data processing? Are there cases where consent is not an appropriate legal basis and why? What opportunities does the consent provide for overcoming some of the GDPR explicit prohibitions – e.g. ones regarding automated individual decision-making or transferring personal data to third countries outside the European Union? What are the consent’s possibilities according to the Bulgarian national rules under the Personal Data Protection Act? This paper addresses the questions raised in the light of European and national practice of applying personal data protection rules, including by analyzing the practice of the national data protection supervisory authority – the Commission for Personal Data Protection.

On 25 May 2018, Regulation 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR/ the Regulation) became applicable. It introduced a unified regime for the protection of personal data within the European Union, further developing the existing national rules in this matter, adopted by the Member States when transposing the requirements of Directive 95/46 that precedes GDPR. Among the ambitious goals of the European legislator with the adoption of GDPR is to ensure the control of natural persons over their own personal data and to enhance legal and practical certainty for natural persons, economic operators and public authorities. One of the means to achieve this is to expand the scope of some existing rights of data subjects in the processing of their personal data, the establishment of new, hitherto unknown rights, as well as the regulation of reciprocal obligations of the subjects processing personal data – data controllers and processors. In addition, GDPR introduces specific rules on the remedies of the data subjects in case the requirements of the Regulation on the processing of their personal data are infringed. The purpose of this study is to analyze the rules for determining international jurisdiction in proceedings related to infringements of the rules of GDPR. The types of legal remedies that GDPR provides to data subjects are considered - the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, the right to effective judicial remedy against a supervisory authority and the right to effective judicial remedy against a controller or processor and the rules for determining international jurisdiction over the said proceedings.

Over the last decade there has been a constant trend towards digitalization of many traditional processes in business organizations. This trend has accelerated dramatically in recent months due to the anti-epidemic measures introduced against the COVID-19 pandemic, which have led to the mass introduction of remote work (where possible), remote business meetings, negotiations and signing of contract, etc. Perhaps the most important of these processes is the document flow of the organization, i.e. the creation, signing, exchange and storage of documents both inside the organization (e.g. documents created in connection with the work process) and outside it (e.g. documents connected to relations with suppliers, contractors, business partners and potential ones). However, with the introduction of concepts such as contract, concluded remotely, electronic statement (e-statement), electronic document (e-document) and electronic signature (e-signature), many questions arise, as well as fears that the new digital being of documents is not able to guarantee the interests of legal entities in the same way as the good old paper document. This analysis aims to examine the issues of the legal value and importance of e-documents in the context of commercial and civil law.

To achieve this goal, the following tasks have been performed: (1) the emergence and evolution of the Principles in historical context are analyzed; (2) their content and practical significance are clarified; (3) a distinction is made between the Principles and the concept of a legal principle; (4) a comparative analysis is carried out with the laws of other countries, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act. As a result of the research, the thesis is substantiated that the Principles have the nature of legal norms of general significance and have established themselves as a kind of standard for personal data protection.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated digitalisation in all spheres of public life. Many companies have had to move to remote work with almost no preparation, limit their physical meetings with current and potential contractors, and switch fully or partly to electronic document turnover. Some questions were urgently raised of how one can sign remotely, so that the various business processes in the organizations would not be blocked and at the same time a certain level of legal certainty would be achieved, which would guarantee the rights and interests of those signing remotely. Although the legal framework of the electronic document and the electronic signature is not new, but has been operating in Bulgaria and the EU for years, it turned out to be insufficiently familiar and clear for most of the companies. This is the main reason for this analysis, which aims to explore the different possibilities for electronic signing of documents in the ordinary course of business of private entities.

The Myth of the General Invalidity of the Waiver of Future Right. Set-off in the Light of the Waiver of Future Right

Authors:Metodi Baykushev, Alexander Georgiev

Subject:Dispute resolution

Published at:http://epi.bg/

Edition:Commercial and Contractual Law Digest, 2019, book 8, book 9

Abstract:

The problem of the validity of the waiver of a future right through a contractual clause has great practical importance. Bulgarian case law and legal theory are consistent in the view that the waiver of future right is void. This stance is problematic in the context of rapidly developing and complicated economic relations. If we rephrase the US Supreme Court Justice Mr Holmes: Тhis is a wrong interpretation that “no lapse of time or respectable array of opinion should make us hesitate to correct”. The law should be applied in a way that is appropriate for its time.
Bulgarian applicable substantive law does not contain a general rule stipulating that a waiver of future rights is invalid. The general legal provision which sets out the rules on invalidity of contracts does not in principle forbid the waiver of future rights (it doesn’t even mention it). However, Bulgarian law explicitly proclaims the freedom of contract as an important general principle.
It is true that there are several specific rules where, under specific circumstances, a waiver of a future right is considered invalid. Such provisions are found in various substantive and procedural regulations, such as the Civil Procedure Code, Obligations and Contracts Act, Labour Code, Consumer Protection Act, Ownership Act and others.
However, if the waiver of a future right was invalid as a general rule, why would we find so many explicit rules rendering the waiver invalid in specific cases? Indeed, there are also a number of situations where the law does treat the waiver of future rights as valid. It’s apparent that where the law explicitly states that a waiver of a future right is invalid, it’s just an example of an exception to the general rule – that a waiver of future rights is admissible.
The general invalidity of the waiver of a future right concept can easily be tested by applying a specific legal institute. If we take the set-off, in some cases the debtor may be interested in maintaining its receivable due to the fact that set-off may be less favourable to it (for example, if its receivable bears interest). Under the Bulgarian law, the set-off takes effect from the moment the set-off was possible. Thus, when a set-off statement is issued, the interest would be discharged. Therefore, the party whose receivable bears interest will benefit from introducing a contractual clause which disallows the right to set-off.
Many waiver of a future right clauses can be found in public-private partnership contracts (e.g. Article 31.1 of the Sofia Airport Concession Agreement). Such clauses are essential for the viability of the modern forms of public-private partnership.
In fact, the waiver of future rights is often at the heart of the contractual relationship between the parties and frequently is a part of the contractual consideration - the obligations that a party undertakes under a particular contract in order to induce the other party to the contract to undertake correlated obligations. This makes it clear that the thesis of the invalidity of the waiver of future rights does not take into account the economic needs and business purposes that underpin the contractual relations in the civil and commercial turnover.
